JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – Nampo, believed to be the biggest agricultural show in the southern hemisphere, shares a characteristic with the latest version of Mitsubishi Motors’ SA;s “Engineered Beyond Tough” 2019 Triton.
Visitors will be able to experience the bakkie on a 4×4 track with a 4×4 instructor and put it through its paces ”to the extreme”.
Hosted by the Free State town of Bothaville in the middle of May, the 2019 Grain SA’s Nampo Harvest Day will offer the latest and best in the farming community, including the all-new Mitsubishi Triton.
Apart from the Triton, Mitsubishi recently launched its Eclipse Cross and Pajero Sport – the latter a finalist in the 2019 AutoTrader SA Car of the Year testing.
”All will be at Nampo.” Mitsubishi SA says, ”for visitors to experience their ability, quality, durability, affordability and performance. One outstanding feature: the whole range has a high level of specification with a lot of added value.
”Buyers are not forced to pay extra for features such as leather upholstery, sunroof or sound and various other electronic systems.”
CALLING ALL FARMERS…
The all-new 2019 Triton, the Pajero Sport and the Pajero short-wheelbase will also be available on the dedicated 4×4 track. Mitsubishi says the all-new Triton is expected to be in high demand – especially for farmers who would like to experience its new six-speed auto transmission, its Super Select II AWD system, and its electronic off-road assistance system.
Nic Campbell, Mitsubishi Motors SA’s general manager, told The Corner: “The tough-looking Triton has bold new looks, is significantly more competitive, and meets the various needs of not only bakkie customers around the world,but also the demands of hard-working farmers.
“This year Mitsubishi Motors is celebrating its 40th year of building bakkies. The 2019 development of the Triton has a number of enhancements and refinements to be even more durable and reliable for agricultural users.”
Nampo started way back in 1967 to serve the requirements of users, suppliers and manufacturers of agricultural equipment. The 2019 event will be through May 14-17 at Nampo Park, Bothaville
