(本报古晋19日讯)大马三菱汽车(Mitsubishi)将于今日及明日(11月19日及20日)举办三菱Triton Extra Hardcore巡回展销会,并邀请我国知名漂移女车手陈莉慧(Leona Chin)在现场驾驶新款Triton,表演高速飘移技术!

该项巡回展销会于古晋独立广场举行,活动免费开放让民众参加,除了可乘坐Triton穿越各种障碍以外,同时在现场购买任何三菱车款的顾客可额外获得Ralliart雨伞,而且凡在现场参与试驾活动的民众,也将获得神秘礼物一份。

大马三菱汽车首席执行员陈绍泉感到欣慰指出,马来西亚三菱汽车成功完成于上周在沙巴刚结束的第26届婆罗洲国际四轮驱动车越野挑战赛。该项活动被称为世界上最艰难的4X4远征,因此马来西亚三菱汽车决定迎接挑战,派出车队征服此项挑战赛。该共公司派出4辆Triton货卡车,其中两辆是搭载全新MIVEC涡轮增压柴油引擎的Triton。

因此,他相信这辆全新升级版的Triton货卡车将能满足客户的需求。

他感到非常荣幸与骄傲的是,在该项挑战赛,三菱Triton完全没有出现机械故障。同时,三菱汽车在2016年满意指数与销量榜夺下榜首位置,这显示三菱汽车提供有责任的客户售后服务。

陈绍泉表示,该项巡迴展销会的下一站,将于1月7日及8日,上午10时至晚上8时,在沙巴亚庇举办。

同时,大马知名女赛车手陈莉慧受访时指出,在赛车界发展有10年的她,近期才刚完成中国克里奥系列赛,夺下亚军荣誉。在20岁进入赛车界的她,起初面对男性的异样眼光,认为女性在这个领域应该不会有很好的表现与发挥,同时也面对大家的评语,女赛车手这事并没有 “钱” 途,但她并没有加以理会,继续迈向目标前进,致力要成为一个杰出的女赛车手。今天她的成就获得男性的尊重,并证明赛车手不只是男性的专利。

明年将会专注于“GT Racing”类似的赛车活动的陈莉慧是于今年初受邀加入三菱Triton团队,同时首次参与婆罗洲国际四轮驱动车越野挑战赛。

今年30岁及目前单身的她表示,这是一种新尝试,因为可以让向来生活在城市的她,接触大自然,同时也面对前所未有的挑战,希望明年她可以继续参与此项挑战赛。

她表示,这辆全新升级版的Triton货卡车性能比上一代的更加卓越及强大,它可以输出最大马力181匹,最大扭力达430Nm,是搭载全新的MIVEC涡轮增压柴油引擎。

另外,三菱新款Triton增加一具全新的 2.4L MIVEC 柴油引擎。新车将分为 6 款车型的Triton在动力系统方面,入门款 Triton Quest 4X2 MT 及 Triton 4X4 MT 仍旧使用 2.5L 柴油引擎,前者有着 110PS/200Nm 的输出表现,后者则是 136PS/324Nm。

至于另外 4 款车型将搭载崭新全铝制代号 4N15 的2.4L MIVEC 涡轮增压柴油引擎,可提供 181PS最大马力、430Nm 峰值扭力之余,更还有一套传输优异的 6 速手排变速系统,以及 Easy Select 4WD 系统,能随时切换二轮驱动和四轮驱动模式。

此外,也因为更轻的引擎重量和更好的动力输出,让新款Triton的加速表现更快,同时油耗进步了多达15巴仙。

KUCHING: The highly anticipated Mitsubishi Triton Extra Hardcore Roadshow finally ‘drifted’ its way into Sarawak led by Malaysia motorsport star Leona Chin and Malaysia 2WD Rally champion Kenneth Koh at Padang Merdeka yesterday.

Making a grand entry to reveal the new Mitsubishi Triton and its powerful Mivec turbo diesel engine was Leona who wowed the crowds with her drifting and precision driving techniques.

The thrill does not end there as Leona and Koh take turns to taxi members of the media and the public for a thrilling test ride around a mini gymkhana track while performing many different driving techniques.

“The Mistsubishi Triton has recently proven its capabilities, endurance and strength by completing the 26th Borneo Safari Off-Road Challenge in Sabah and we are very excited to bring some of these adventures for Sarawakians to experience the thrills themselves,” said Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia CEO Tomoyuki Shinnishi during a launching ceremony.

He also said Mitsubishi’s long experience in cross-country competition and proven success in conquering the toughest terrains, continuous refinements are made to improve the production of Mitsubishi vehicles.

“With the new Mivec Turbo Diesel engine, we are confident of meeting pick-up owner’s high level of expectations,” he added.

He also revealed that the new Triton is also the first pick-up truck in its segment to offer an aluminium alloy block diesel engine with Mivec variable valve timing technology.

The new Mivec engine weighs 30kg lighter for improved acceleration and handling.

“The previous 2.5 litre cast iron block was already powerful enough to conquer the Borneo Safari last year, so the development of the new Mivec engine was focused on reducing fuel consumption which our engineers managed to improve efficiency up to 15 per cent,” he added.

Also speaking after the drift session was Leona who said the new Triton’s engine is now capable of producing more power with an output of 181 PS (Pferdestarke (German/horsepower) and 430 Nm (Newton-metre) of torque.

“This is an upgrade which makes the new Mitsubishi Triton more powerful and fuel efficient. I simply love this vehicle,” said Leona who was also part of the recent 26th Borneo Safari Off-Road Challenge in Sabah.

Leona also commended on the new look of the Mitsubishi Triton VGT Adventure X (one of the six new Mitsubishi Triton variants) that now comes with a new shield extender for the front bumper, new sports bar with fullbox and dual tone 17-inch alloy wheels.

Meanwhile, the public is also invited to take part in the final day of the roadshow today, besides taking part in the taxi-drift with Leona and Koh. The public can also participate in an obstacle course which features a 45-degree, 25-feet tall sky ramp that points skyward.

Other challenges include the roller ramp test that will see the 4×4 vehicle ‘drive through’ the giant obstacle truck as well as the side traverse and uneven ramp tests.

After Sarawak, the roadshow will be travelling to Sabah in early January next year.
