The revamped Mitsubishi L200 pick-up truck has gone on sale in the UK, with prices starting from £25,755 for private buyers. The firm says it has made more than 2400 changes from the previous version.
The heavily facelifted update of the fifth-generation pick-up was launched in Thailand last year and features a revamped design that includes the latest version of the Japanese firm’s ‘Dynamic Shield’ grille.
The new L200 is powered by a 2.3-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that produces 148bhp and 295lb ft of torque. It offers a top speed of 108mph, a maximum payload of 1080kg and a towing capacity of up to 3500kg.
The four-wheel-drive machine comes with a choice of manual and automatic six-speed gearboxes and has a WLTP-certified fuel economy of between 29.1mpg and 32.1mpg.
The entry-level 4Life Club cab models, which start from £21,515 for commercial buyers, feature 16in steel wheels, keyless entry, air conditioning and Bluetooth connectivity. The 4Life trim is also available with the larger double cab, starting from £27,195 (£22,715 for commercial buyers).
Higher-level trims are available with the double cab only. Warrior trim starts from £31,617 (£26,400 commercial) and adds 18in alloy wheels, LED headlights and running lights, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, a reversing camera, infotainment touchscreen and lane departure warning.
