The 2015 Mitsubishi L200 pickup truck is the fifth generation of the long-trusted Japanese utility vehicle.
It turned its utilitarian spirit more towards comfort, but it didn’t forget its roots and it is still able to carry a one tonne load on top of a mountain. And do it again.
The strictest Euro 6 emission norms are a big pain for most car manufacturers, but for some, it is even harder. The L200 has a specially dedicated engine, which cannot be found on any other vehicle in the carmaker’s small lineup. The 2.4 diesel unit was improved and it now offers 150 hp, while the previous HO option (High-output with 163 Hp) is no longer on the table. Transmissions available are either a 6-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic.
Mitsubishi is well-known in the off-road world for its Super-Select 4x4 system, which is unique on the market with its capabilities to shift and lock differentials in off-roading.
Special attention was given to the cockpit, where five passengers can fit easily. The rear bench seat is not the most comfortable place in the vehicle industry, though, due to its almost vertical backrest. The infotainment unit provides Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus a navigation system and special dedicated off-road programs.
