Endeavoring to improve the already eye-catching look of the popular Triton, Mitsubishi has nurtured their idea of giving its pickup a more aggressive appearance. And now, they have actually introduced the limited Mitsubishi Triton Barbarian edition with an exciting package of off-road features to the UK market. Many presume this package will be released worldwide later on.
Overall, orange is the color used purposefully for making the highlights and somehow making the SVP more aggressive. Specifically, the orange is spread in many parts of the car. It is added to the headlight bottoms and the grille. Orange also circles around the fog lights. The manufacturer even decides to put orange to the 6 spokes of the wheels. At the back of the vehicle, orange is used to make the edges of tail lights as well. The area right below the handle of the bumper is also made orange. The roof rails on the top are no exception, they are orange-coated.

Orange is chosen to be the main element that promotes the special feeling in this model, and for that reason the ambient lighting in the Triton Barbarian also performs orange glows too.
