A concept car of the all-new Triton has been unveiled by Mitsubishi. The Mitsubishi XRT Concept is characterized by a fierce expression on the front and a robust hood that continues to the side with bold, horizontally-themed styling.
In a bold move to attract serious off-roaders, the concept car is fitted with front and rear over fenders as well as mud-terrain tires avoiding the typical hamstringing of all terrain tyres off the showroom floor.
The body features a camouflage design inspired by lava rocks packed with condensed energy, and the sides have been adorned with a graphic of the 10-parallel line Ralliart brand icon that expresses Mitsubishi Motors’ passion for driving.
Look out in August for the new beast as it tackles the Asia Cross Country Rally. Team Mitsubishi Ralliart, which receives technical support from Mitsubishi Motors, plans to compete with a prototype cross-country model of the all-new Triton (Group T1 specifications) in its quest for a second straight victory.
Hiroshi Masuoka, a two-time Dakar Rally champion driver in 2002 and 2003, will stay on as team director, and Mitsubishi Motors engineers will perform pre-testing and accompany the team to provide support at the rally.
The good news for Triton fans is that rally testing feedback forms the basis of future production reality.
