Mitsubishi wants to go on adventures with modified Triton, Outlander PHEV, and Delica MPVs
We're only a couple of days away from the start of the 2024 Tokyo Auto Salon. Since last week (and during the holidays last year), Japanese automakers have already released several pictures and details about their upcoming builds and concepts that will be arriving at the annual auto show.
Also set to join this year's Tokyo Auto Salon is Mitsubishi, and they will be bringing a tricked-out Triton to Makuhari Messe along with several more custom rides. Say Konnichiwa to the Triton Snow Shredder Concept, and it looks ready to tear up the snow.
Modified to take on the icy conditions that come during winter, the Triton Snow Shredder gets a heaping serving of mods that include snow tires from Toyo, a snorkel to help the pickup traverse rivers, underbody protection, beadlock wheels, as well as a beefier front bumper. The Snow Shredder also gets side compartments and a roof rack that can store plenty of gear for snowboarding or skiing in the Alps.
Aside from the Snow Shredder Concept, Mitsubishi will also be bringing a regular Triton pickup with some subtle exterior upgrades. While it may look just like a stock version, the pickup finished in Yamabuki Orange Metallic gets some neat accessories like fender arch moldings, side door garnishes, a tonneau cover for the bed, and even a tailgate assist.
Also set to make its presence felt at the 2024 Tokyo Auto Salon are modified versions of the Outlander PHEV, Delica D:5, and the Delica Mini. Starting with the Outlander PHEV Active Field, the electrified crossover gets a roof-mounted crossbar that will allow it to carry big loads. It also comes with black accents, black alloy wheels, chunky snow tires, and a blacked-out hood decal.
Moving to the Delica D:5 and Delica D:5 Chamonix Snow Gear concepts, the pair of MPVs appear to have been inspired by the French ski resort town that carries the same name. Both vehicles get rugged snow tires, fender wheel arches, a roof rack, upgraded bumpers, green side mirror caps, and roof-mounted LED lights.
With Mitsubishi's booth carrying the “Let's go on an adventure”, it's not surprising that the automaker has decided to bring adventure-ready vehicles to this year's Tokyo Auto Salon. If you happen to be in Chiba, Japan, and near Makuhari Messe, the 2024 Tokyo Auto Salon will be open to the public from January 12 to 14.
