New commanding look combined with better tech.

The next-gen 2024 Mitsubishi Triton is officially out for the Philippine market. It gets a new look, an improved engine, more safety features, a more refined interior, and a new name that now aligns with the global version. So how does the old Strada compare to the all-new 2024 Mitsubishi Triton?

Let’s find out by comparing the specs and design of the outgoing Mitsubishi Strada against the all-new Mitsubishi Triton. 

Mitsubishi Triton Old vs New: Exterior

Right off the bat, the all-new Triton is markedly larger than the old model. This is thanks to the fact that it rides on a new ladder frame chassis that is optimized for space, safety, and performance.

For the older Strada, it is 5,305mm long, 1,815mm wide, and 1,795mm in height. Its wheelbase spans 3,000mm, and it features a ground clearance of 220mm. 

The all-new Triton meanwhile, is 5,360mm long, 1930mm wide, and 1,815mm in height. Its wheelbase clocks in at 3,130mm, while the ground clearance of its top-spec Athlete trim is set at 222mm.

The all-new Triton is a bit larger compared to the older Strada.

The newer model is 50mm longer, 115mm wider, and 20mm taller compared to the old Strada. This might translate to more interior space. 

The Styling of the all-new Triton is also quite a departure from the old model. While the previous generation sports some degree of curves, the new model is all straight lines.

The LED daytime running lamps, for instance, get a three-bar design which is more horizontal compared to the slightly upswept DRLs of the older truck. The main headlamps were also separated from the DRLs, and it is now positioned a bit higher on the fascia. The black-toned bars on the grille were then replaced by a body-colored slatted grille. The old model also featured a mesh-type lower intake, while the new Triton gets a much larger grille instead. 

The biggest difference between the two from the side is their fender flares. The newer model is dressed up with larger fender flares, while the one on the old model looks more “integrated” into its body.

Also present on the new truck’s rear end is a more modern-looking pair of LED taillights. The line separating the bed and the main cab is also straighter on the new model. 

Mitsubishi Triton Old vs New: Interior

The differences between the two truck’s interiors mirror the exteriors. The newer model gets a mostly straight dashboard, while the old one features plenty of curved lines and bulging shapes. The newer model’s central screen is also positioned higher than the old model’s as it is now a floating-type screen. Its gauge cluster also looks larger, featuring a wider seven-inch center digital information display unit.

The steering wheel of the 2024 Triton also ditched the heavy-set look of the old model in favor of a sleeker design. The shifter’s gear arrangement was likewise changed from being staggered to having a straight design. 

Last but not least, the button controls for the air-conditioning system were also made to jut out more on the Triton. The old one had flatter buttons and up/down toggles while the new one gets a set of more modern-looking tabs.

Mitsubishi Triton Old vs New: Tech & Safety

For on-board entertainment, the old top-spec Strada had a seven-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The new Mitsubishi Triton meanwhile, is kitted out with a far larger nine-inch touchscreen with wireless versions of Apple and Android’s smartphone mirroring software. 

Charging too might be easier on the new model since it can do that wirelessly via a pad. The old one, in turn, relied on its USB ports and its 12-volt socket. Do note though that the newer Mitsubishi truck retains two USB ports for the front cabin, and two for the rear. It also has 12-volt sockets.

The old Strada, safety-wise, featured a comprehensive complement of advanced features including forward collision mitigation (FCM), hill-start assist, hill-descent control, rear-cross traffic alert, stability assist, blind-spot warning, lane change assist, etc.

The new model has all those, plus its FCM was upgraded to be able to detect pedestrians and cyclists. The latter feature was also upgraded to work on junctions. It also gets an adaptive cruise control system, a driver alertness monitoring system, and a front-cross traffic alert system which weren’t available on the older truck. 

Mitsubishi Triton Old vs New: Engine

Under the hood of the old Strada was a 2.4-liter inline-4 turbodiesel 4N15 engine that could produce up to 178 horsepower and 430 Nm of torque.

The all-new Triton's top-spec Athlete trim meanwhile, gets a 2.4-liter inline-4  4N16 mill that can make up to 201 horsepower and 470 Nm of torque. In turn, the lower-spec trims of the new Triton can make 180 hp and 430 Nm of torque which is more sedate compared to the top-spec model. But regardless of the trim, the all-new Triton is the more powerful truck when compared to the outgoing Strada. 

Carried over from the old Strada was the Super Select 4WD-II. On the newer model, it still has the same drivetrain modes: a rear-wheel-drive mode, a four-high (4H) mode, a four-high mode with a locked differential (4HLc), and a four-low mode w/ locked differential (4LLc).

The 4H mode though, was upgraded and it can now be used at highway speeds. This is thanks to a torque-sensing center differential.

Also, present on the Triton and unavailable on the old Strada is active yaw control. The brand says this assures agile handling, whilst maintaining driving safety.
