The Mitsubishi Strada, when launched in the Philippine market, was powered by the same 4D56 engine the powered the previous generation of the Strada and Montero Sport, whereas everyone else got the all-new MIVEC 2.4 liter diesel engine found in the all-new Montero Sport. It was a matter of time before it was equipped to our Strada variants, and now, here it is, powering the all-new GT variant.
The main headline for this Strada is the MIVEC diesel engine from the Montero Sport. The world’s first diesel engine with variable valve timing produces 181 hp and 430 Nm of torque, and is Euro 4 emissions standard compliant. The 4D56 engine options continues to be offered, but is now Euro 4 compliant as well. Both are mated to a 5-Speed Manual or Automatic, not the 8-Speed Automatic from the Montero Sport.
Some changes were made skin deep to the Strada GT, and these are the addition of ASTC (Anti Skid and Traction Control), and 7 airbags. Just like the Strada Fieldmaster which continues to be offered, it comes with a blacked-out grille, PIAA LED auxiliary lamps, and a front nudge bar.
