What’s new with the Mitsubishi L200?
One of the world’s most popular pickups is back and better than ever before. The sixth-generation Mitsubishi L200 has been brought bang up to date with refreshed styling inside and out. This is alongside a host of refined features and technologies for more economical and convenient motoring wherever and whenever you are heading.
Completely overhauled, styling has helped to bring the brand-new Mitsubishi L200 Series 6 into line with the company’s ‘Dynamic Shield’ design language as seen on newly released models like the Shogun Sport. While the chassis and basic pickup bed remain unchanged, the new L200 features more angular front and rear bumpers as well as more sculpted front and rear flanks.
This slightly slimmed down and more sculpted silhouette ensures the L200 can be driven with confidence, whether off-road or meandering through towns.
What’s more, despite maintaining a similar dashboard layout, the new L200 comes new trim elements and switchgear surrounds. Everything feels more upmarket thanks to soft-touch materials on the console, centre armrest and handbrake.
But it is under the bonnet where the majority of changes have taken place. A brand new 2.2-litre diesel engine ensures the latest Mitsubishi L200 model is Euro 6d-compliant. With 148bhp and 400Nm torque, it delivers a top speed of 108mph.
While making it more environmentally friendly, Mitsubishi has incorporated an AdBlue tank that will allow you to cover 12,000 miles without a top-up, as well as intuitive stop-start technology as standard, so you make the most of every drop of fuel.
On top of that, the four-wheel-drive system has been revamped to offer more stability, whatever the conditions. With a five-channel off-road mode tackling gravel, snow, sand and rock will be no problem. While the new hill descent control system ensures the L200 will have no problems taking you wherever you want to go. Plus you can choose from either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic depending on your preferences.
The new Mitsubishi L200 also comes with larger brakes, revised suspension with robust rear dampers and locking differentials. While a maximum 3,500kg towing capacity ensures this pickup remains a strong and sturdy workhorse that will get the job done.
The Mitsubishi L200 new model will be available in four main trims; 4Life, Warrior, Barbarian and Barbarian X.
The entry-level 4Life model will be available in both single and double cab variants. The single cab variant comes equipped with everything you really need including 16” steel wheels, air-conditioning, electric windows, Bluetooth connectivity and keyless entry. While opting for the double cab variant of the same model comes with uprated 16” alloys, cruise control, two extra doors with electric windows and a rear bench seat.
Step up to the Warrior trim for larger 18” alloy wheels, an advanced touchscreen infotainment system available with smartphone connectivity, LED headlights and taillights and automatic headlamps and wipers for a more convenient drive. While a host of safety equipment like forward collision mitigation and lane departure warning help to keep you protected.
For luxuries like leather upholstery, heated front seats, interior mood lighting, puddle lamps and off-road drive modes you need to opt for the Barbarian model. While the Barbarian X model gains additional features including a 360-degree camera, front and rear parking sensors, automatic high beam assist, LED fog lamps and even more extensive safety kit.
