MITSUBISHI has taken the wraps off its new Triton ute, promising car-like steering, a smoother ride and quieter performance.

Due to be launched in Australia mid-way through 2015, the new Triton will have an all-aluminium 133kW/430Nm 2.4-litre turbo diesel engine paired to a new six-speed manual transmission or optional five-speed automatic.

Pricing or specification has not been announced. 

Looks are not dynamically different from the current model, which is the biggest selling Mitsubishi variant in Australia. 

Much trumpeted is the car-like turning radius of 5.9 metres.  

Mitsubishi says generous interior space has been achieved across all the three available body styles - single cab, double cab and club cab body, while the strategic placement of sound insulation, absorption and vibration damping materials delivering significantly improved cabin quietness. 

Mitsubishi Motors Australia executive director of marketing Tony Principe said the new generation Triton is designed to successfully perform the dual role of work truck and family car. 

"The 2015 Triton is part of a new breed of Mitsubishi vehicles that reflect the sizable investment we are making in the development of world-class SUV and light commercial vehicles," he said.

"New Triton makes a significant leap forward in all areas, particularly in terms of passenger comfort, manoeuvrability and efficiency, and still delivers on the toughness, reliability and off-road performance that have made Triton such a success in Australia."

The new Triton will be built in Thailand.
