Mitsubishi has been making its pickup truck since 1978, though it wasn’t called the Triton until the truck’s second generation came along in 1987. That first generation truck was even sold inside the U.S. as a badge-engineered Dodge called the Ram 50. It competed against the likes of the Ford Courier and Chevrolet LUV. Though the story of the U.S-sold trucks continues on, the Triton moved onward in the global market. The second generation lasted from 1987 through 1996 and was styled much like the Toyota Hilux. In the latter parts of 1996, the third generation Triton came out and lasted through 2004. Lastly, the forth-generation Triton debuted for the 2006 model year and was rather stylized by comparison to its predecessors.

Now for 2015, Mitsubishi is bringing out the fifth-generation of Triton trucks — one that boasts a more car-like interior and more truck-like capabilities. Two turbo-diesel options and a gasoline engine are available A new six-speed manual transmission is now offered, along with a five-speed automatic.

It’s new interior promises more creature comforts with things like a touchscreen infotainment system, a driver’s information screen in the gauge cluster, and much more sound deadening than before.

Though the Triton will never make it to the U.S., the Triton will makes its way into Australia, Thailand, the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Latin American, and other countries in the ASEAN Oceania region.

Mitsubishi Pulls Prank on Customers with Drifting Saleswoman

Mitsubishi Pulls Prank on Customers with Drifting Saleswoman

We’ve seen this stunt before – an unsuspecting person rides shotgun with what appears to be a bumbling idiot or ignorant girl, only to be taken for the ride of their life. That’s exactly what happens here in this Mitsubishi bit. It’s still no less exciting.

The star is Leona Chin, a pro driver from Malaysia. Chin poses as a saleswoman in a Mitsubishi dealership trying to answer questions about the new Triton pickup truck. The reaction from her male customers is rather hilarious, ranging from the classic “What’s a pretty girl like you doing here?” to a more chauvinistic, “This is a man’s truck, let me drive.”

I won’t ruin all the video’s surprises and fun, but know that Chin does a great job of showing these dudes how to handle a truck. Chin shows impressive skill in getting the top-heavy and moderately powered Triton truck sideways on dry pavement. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
