The Triton GLX-R is a great ute which can be used for either work or play and with loads of added on features make it well worth the money to upgrade from the GLX Model. With everything from 17”alloys, chrome mirrors, sports bar, sports interior, climate control and even a rear power window which is again a fantastic feature for the tradie or regular family with pets, the GLX-R will not disappoint on the highway or the most difficult of 4wd tracks.

With skill’s and toughness to boot who better to review 4WD of the year the Mitsubishi Triton then Brisbane based Wallaby Will Genia.
At only 22 Will Genia has helped drive the Queensland Red’s to their best performance in 7 years and cement himself in the Wallabies as a superstar. Don’t take these words from me, often hailed as Australia’s greatest halfback George Gregan has passed on some compliments that should have Brisbane and Australian Rugby fans excited.
‘He’s got a lot more skills than me,’ Gregan said of Genia. ‘He’s bigger, stronger and he can kick a lot further. I’m a dinosaur compared to him. He’s got a good head on his shoulders. I like the way he plays. He has time and space to do things, which is a sign of a real quality player.’
With these abilities in mind I couldn’t wait to hear what Will had to say about the all new Mitsubishi Triton GLX-R 2010.
After a tough game out on the footy field comfort is important, no doubt bruised and battered Will found the Triton “was very spacious and had a comforatable interior, it was also very free and easy to drive”
As the 4wd of the year Mitsubishi have obviously designed something quite special for the 4WD enthusiasts in mind, however as Will said it was “simple and luxurious at the same time both on inside and outside whilst also being sporty stylish 4 wheel drive that drives better and looks better than any other 4wd”
So take it from Brisbane Wallaby Will Genia, “the Mitsubishi Triton drives better and looks better then any other 4wd”
