Well, shock horror..but expected.

2022 Triton is going to be a rebadged Nevara. Mercedes couldn't make it on that platform, so be interesting if new unit will bias to Mitsubishi or Renault/Pissan underpinnings?

Will super select survive?

There are a few articles about now.

No mention of Super Select anywhere. Will Nissan pick this up, or Triton get all coil suspension option?

RIP the genuine Triton!

Not even MB survived in their skin.

Mitsubishi are in it, up to their necks. Recent figures say they're only making $400/vehicle while Toyota are kicking their tin with over $4000. With low volumes Mitsibishi are racing themselves to the bottom and paying the price for ceasing to innovate with new technology over the last 10 years, or more. Nissan, meanwhile, are not doing much better and the arranged menage a trois with Renault having very few really obvious advantages for anyone, least of all their customers.

Triton outsells Navara by some 60% here in Australia and Mitsubishi also have the Pajero Sport (which isn't) that sells another ~6000 units each year against a non-existent Nissan competitor. Just on volumes alone, the Triton based range has a clear advantage.

It's time to stop trying to sell to the bottom of the market and bring pricing up to even close to the levels that Toyota and Ford are demanding, and getting.

Yeah Mitsi has been bleeding for a while. Death of the real Pajero and now we say goodbye to the real Triton.
Just seems crazy to use the Navara platform rather than the Triton? Considering how much the Triton outsells Navara, why would they think this was a good idea. Do they think people won't notice?
