Mitsubishi Triton Australia

By: michael

The Mitsubishi Triton is a compact pickup truck produced by Mitsubishi Motors. It was originally known as the Mitsubishi Forte in Japan from 1978 to 1986, and the Mitsubishi L200 in export markets. In 1986, the Forte name was discontinued in favour of the L200.

In the United States two captive imports of the Forte were sold by the Chrysler Corporation as the Dodge Ram 50 and Plymouth Arrow Truck from 1979. Mitsubishi itself imported it as the

Mitsubishi Mighty Max when it began selling directly in the U.S. from 1982, at which point

the Plymouth ceased to be available.

The Forte name was discontinued in Japan in 1986 when the second generation of the truck was

introduced, in favour of L200. In Australia and New Zealand the Triton name was used for long ago. It was available in three bodystyles; regular cab, extended cab "Macro Cab"/"Club Cab"), and crew cab (which was not sold in North America).

Two L200-based race vehicles were raced in the 2005 and 2006 Dakar Rally by Mana Pornsiricherd of Thailand and Alexey Burkut of Russia.Additionally, the 4x4 styled 4x2 models have been added in the lineup since end of November 2006. Exclusively for Thai market. Available 7" DVD screen instead of RV meter for some upper-grade models.
