Of note, the next-generation Triton is the replacement of the outgoing fourth-gen model which was known locally as the Mitsubishi Strada. The all-new Triton is now available for pre-order in the Philippines, and it will launch officially for the local market in January 2024. To this end, those who are pre-ordering the Triton can be assured that the all-new truck is a very competent platform when it comes to safety. 

For adult occupant protection (AOP), the 2024 Triton received a weighted score of 32.52 out of 40, which is equivalent to five out of five stars. It did particularly well in the side impact crash test as it provided good protection for an adult’s head, neck, chest, and waist. It likewise gave good protection to an adult’s head, neck, chest, hips, and knees during the frontal impact crash test.

In terms of child occupant protection (COP), it was found that the Triton’s second-row seats were compatible with a good number of aftermarket child seats in many mounting positions. Particularly noteworthy is its perfect score of 16 out of 16 for the COP frontal impact test and side impact test. In total, the pickup truck received a weighted score of 17.52 out of 20 for the COP category. 

Both test results mentioned above are indicative of the truck’s well-designed crumple zones, sturdy body structure, and airbag functionality. Of note, the unit that was tested came standard with dual front airbags and knee airbags. Side and curtain airbags are available on the higher-end trims. 

Under the Safety Assist category, the ASEAN NCAP also noted great performance for the Mitsubishi-made truck’s automatic emergency braking system and blind-spot monitoring. The latter was consistent in detecting road obstructions, while the latter was able to track moving objects that were passing through its side blind spots. So for this category, it was given a weighted score of 14.44 out of 20.
