Just saw the other day, c/o a UK website that the 2.5-litre auto-tranny Triton (or Strada in Philippines) got 400 Nm of grunt while the manual is 350 Nm (the other way around hehe.... i don't really know and it made me wonder). It also produces around 178 pferdestarke (175 bhp). Incidentally, the Triton and the Montysport use the same engine.
It must have been a typo on the site you were looking at.
Firstly there is no Triton in the UK. The Strada is sold as an L200. Their higher spec models have the VGT engine but the manual here: http://www.mitsubishi-cars.co.uk/l200/specifications.aspx?Variant=OU1
produces 400Nm and the Automatic here: http://www.mitsubishi-cars.co.uk/l200/specifications.aspx?Variant=OU2
The same applies to Australian Strada (aka Triton) and Montero (aka Challenger)
I hope they will install the updated 4m41 3.2 liter with 190hp and 410nm to the montero sport
With regards to the 3.2 VGT engine; I doubt it will be going in the montero anytime soon. It has not been used in Australia, and they are almost a year with the 2.5vgt.
The new 2.5 vgt with its 175 hp beats the pants off the top of the range Fortuner 3.0 in power and torque, and is making the Fortuner 2.5 looking like a horse drawn carriage (all be it 102 horses). On the road the Montero beats the pants off Toyota's offering in ride quality. Anyone who says otherwise has not driven the Montero and Fortuner in the same day.
It is my opinion that the non-vgt engine will continue to drive the Filipino Montero Sport GLX in the 2011 model (inline with the uks L200 and Australian Triton base models)
