4th Generation Mitsubishi Triton
2005 – 2014

Released in 2005 and sold in over 140 markets globally, this Mitsubishi Pickup was one of the most popular bakkies ever built by the Japanese brand. Due to its larger size, it was a big hit here in South Africa but sold poorly in Japan due to the fact that workhorse vehicles in that country tend to be much more compact in size due to the limited space within urban areas. Because of this, it was sadly the last Mitsubishi Triton Generation to be sold in Japan.
