New Variants. Mitsubishi Triton GLX-R and top-spec GSR revealed

Mitsubishi has announced the release, price and specs for the two new variants, the mid-spec GLX-R and the top-spec GSR which goes on-sale here in March

Mitsubishi Motors Australia has announced the launch of two new Triton variants. The GLX-R (which is available now) and the top-spec GSR which will be available here in March. Anyone remember the Lancer GSR?

The GLX-R sits between the GLX+ and the GLS variants with Mitsubishi’s marketing team calling the GLX-R, “a bold looking Triton with additional street presence thanks to 18-inch alloy wheels and large fog lamps.” The GLX-R will also get chrome door mirrors, front bumper garnish, as well as silver front grille which they claim will “add a more sophisticated look for ute enthusiasts”. Mitsubishi has priced the GLX-R from $39,990 drive away.

The new top-spec GSR variant won’t arrive here until March, with Mitsubishi saying, “the GSR provides a tough and modern looking variant to the range.” This “tough and modern” look means, “18-inch black alloy wheels, black dynamic shield design, grille, headlamp garnish, skid plate, door mirrors, door handles and sidesteps”.

Beyond all the cosmetic fripperies, the GSR ups its tech game with the addition of Multi-around Monitor with steering wheel camera switch, leather-trimmed seats, steering wheel and park brake level/shift knob, powered driver’s seat and heated front seats. The GSR can also be had with with either a roll-top tonneau, soft or hard cover. The GSR is priced at $50,990 drive away.
