The Mitsubishi Triton shows its grunt with Aussie off-road champion Toby Price at the wheel

Mitsubishi is an Aussie favourite, known for its tough utes and sporty city cars. But until now, it hasn’t seen much of the spotlight in Australian motorsports. Just last month, Mitsubishi Motors Australia announced that four-time Australian Off-Road Champion, Toby Price, was its newest ambassador, having taken delivery of a new 2016 Mitsubishi Triton Exceed.

The Mitsubishi Triton Exceed is a new addition to the Triton family, the perfect support vehicle for Price, who regularly competes in challenging off-road motorsport events around the country. As a professional in motorsports, Price spends a lot of time on the road, taking his motorcycle and racing equipment with him. The Triton gives the grunt he needs, without sacrificing comfort or good looks.

Tough and reliable, the four-wheel drive capability makes it perfect for reaching more remote locations for the racing professional, and with a quiet engine and a superior interior, long drives are made easy.

With a long history in endurance motorsport, Mitsubishi is the perfect partner for Price, featuring some of the best Mitsubishi has to offer, including a new 2.4-litre MIVEC turbo diesel engine and customised Mitsubishi Genuine Accessories including nudge-bar, roof racks, tub-liner and driving lights.

A New Era in Excellence – The New 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander

Revealed just last month at the New York International Auto Show, the new Mitsubishi Outlander is set to break all the records, redesigned and re-engineered from nose to tail to deliver modern edgy looks and vastly improved performance on the road.  The 2016 Outlander is the first in the Mitsubishi family to showcase the brand’s striking new “Dynamic Shield” design concept, providing a fresh, sleek look on-road.

With improvements galore, the 2016 model is the perfect balance between amazing new features and the great qualities of past models. But what exactly gives the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander more to love? Have a look:


As mentioned above, the new “Dynamic Shield” design concept is perhaps one of the most obvious exterior features of the 2016 model. This feature is inherited from the bumper side protection seen on generations of the Pajero, providing reassuring protection for both people and car.

Sharper rear styling provides a sleek look, with a new design bumper and silver skid plate. Chrome tailgate garnish and LED rear combo lamps, as well as fog lamps complement the look. The same chrome accents are used throughout the exterior, offering a consistent styling with 18-inch alloy wheels to complete the car’s great looks.


As if the outside wasn’t enough to impress, the inside of the new Outlander delivers even more bang for your buck. Embellished with soft touch features and premium grade materials, the whole cabin is built to impress, with refined stitching highlights on the instrument panel, featuring a gloss black screen, and a soft type centre console with room for all your bits and bobs. The steering wheel has been revamped, with gloss black bezel and new accent trim.

But what about the most important part of the interior – the seats? The 2016 Outlander does not disappoint, with improved lateral support and an increase in side bolster stiffness. The LS and XLS models also feature new black cloth seat trim with stitching details complement the new interior look and further increase comfort.


Boasting improved handling dynamics and reduced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), the 2016 Outlander drives like a dream.

NVH improvements have been developed in part from the application of extensive sound insulation and isolation damping materials throughout the vehicle. A modified engine air intake system allows for reduced engine noise, cabin boom, road and wind noise, along with features like noise-isolating windscreen glass, improved weather stripping, new tyres, damper tuning and modified suspension mounts. And this isn’t all! In fact, the new Outlander has thirty-nine NVH improvements in total.

Other improvements include better steering response, handling and ride feel, achieved through a more rigid suspension system, reinforced body and Electronic Power Steering calibrations. Comfort and straight line stability has also seen improvement due to the larger diameter rear dampers.

Acceleration also saw a change, with the revised Continuously-Variable Transmission (CVT) system taking it to the next level. Other improvements include better fuel economy, improved transmission shift quality and downshift response.


Like all great Mitsubishis, the 2016 Outlander has received a five-star ANCAP safety rating thanks to its combination of active and passive safety features. Front driver and passenger airbags, side, curtain and knee protection airbags, reverse camera and sensors and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System are just some of the things that help this model get top spot.

The Outlander’s Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body structure is further reinforced with active safety features like Traction Control and Active Stability Control (ASC), ABS with Electronic Break Distribution (EBD) and Hill Start Assist.

Customers for Life is our Philosophy

Whatever kind of purchase you’re looking to make, be it a car, a house, or a television, there are always going to smaller, less-established companies and salespeople who are looking to make a quick dollar without offering you any significant after care or clearly lay out exactly what it is you’re paying for.

Bartons Bayside Mitsubishi has been serving Wynnum Manly & the Redlands for more than 66 years; they’ve seen the ups and downs of the local motoring industry and have serviced countless families, helping them to find the best possible deal on their next vehicle where another car dealer may have failed.

What started as a small family-run business operating out of a workshop has flourished into one of the largest family-owned dealerships in Queensland, and this level of experience is exactly what is needed because they understand that making a quick sale and leaving the customer floundering benefits neither you nor them in the long term.

So Bartons Bayside Mitsubishi have a vested interested in ensuring that you have the best possible experience and drive away with a car you’re happy with; this is the key to their long-lasting success and is just one aspect of what sets them apart from the competition.

Buy Better, Buy Bartons

When you receive a quotation on a vehicle from Bartons Bayside Mitsubishi, that is what you will pay; they are one of the best-organized, if not the best organized in Queensland, and you can drive away safe in the knowledge that there will be no hidden charges, no sneaky administrative fees, and no nasty hidden terms in the small print.

Mitsubishi’s 2013 Triton – More Power, More Safety, and Greater Load

Mitsubishi have recently released the 2013 Triton and, as you might have already guessed, it definitely does not disappoint.

This beautiful behemoth has undergone some serious enhancements and improvements from last year’s model and Mitsubishi have really pulled out all the stops to make for a safe, secure, and all-round superb driving experience.

Key Features

The basic entry-level model is the Mitsubishi Triton GL Single Cab chassis 4×2 which features a robust 94kW/194Nm 2.4L petrol engine while the GLX model has been given an upgrade with the 100kW/314Nm 2.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine found in the Triton GLX Single Cab 4×2. All other GLX models including the Club Cab, Single Cab 4×4, Double Cab 4×2 and Double Cab 4×4 crank it up even further with the ‘Hi Power’ version which offers 131kW and 400Nm.

Visually, the Triton offers a real feast for the eyes, boasting side steps, body-coloured external panels, and a wonderfully comfortable cloth upholstery interior.

The interior also features silver flourishes across the instrument cluster, while the steering wheel and gear stick are wrapped in high-grade leather, resulting in a slick and stylish theme throughout.

You’ll also find a whole host of convenient features; power windows and mirrors, cruise control with steering wheel-mounted controls to offer the utmost control and visibility of your surroundings, while the air conditioning, quad-speaker audio system, and Bluetooth phone connectivity provide the ultimate in in-car entertainment, comfort, and convenience.

Moving back outside for a moment, the Triton GL-R boasts 16-inch alloy wheels, a rear step, and sports bar, while the GLX-R includes the addition of auto-folding side mirrors, fog lamps, and 17-inch alloys that will give you unprecedented confidence and control on the road.


Mitsubishi’s 2013 Triton range was awarded an overall score of 25.08 out of 37 by ANCAP crash testing measures.

Dual front airbags for both driver and passenger are included as standard, while Antilock brakes, or ABS, with electronic brake distribution, or EBD, are offered as optional extras on the entry-level models.

Pre-tension devices are also fitted to all of the seatbelts to reduce slack and minimize injury in the event of a crash or emergency stop.

The 2013 Triton has been awarded a final score of four out of five stars for its safety measures, providing good-to-marginal protection in front and side crash tests; this suggests that these measures provide an overall adequate level of protection to both driver and passengers.


All in all, Mitsubishi’s Triton line up certainly boasts some major improvements from previous years; the interior and exterior designs have both been given a great deal of attention and the inner workings of the car, including its workhorse engine, ABS, and EBS, have all been fine-tuned to deliver impeccable performance while providing some of the very best available in safety and security.
