The concept car from the All-New Triton, the Mitsubishi XRT Concept has a characteristic dashing character at the front and a solid hood that stretches sideways with a bold horizontal style. Furthermore, this concept car is equipped with front and rear over fenders and mud tires, providing strong power to compete in challenging rallies and cross various terrain.

On the bodywork there is a camouflage design inspired by lava rocks with condensed energy and the sides have been decorated with the iconic Ralliart graphic with 10 parallel lines expressing Mitsubishi Motors' passion for driving.

At the 2023 Asia Cross Country Rally, the Mitsubishi Ralliart Team, receiving technical support from Mitsubishi Motors, plans to compete with the prototype cross-country model of the All-New Triton (group T1 specification) in its quest for a second successive win.
