The Mitsubishi L200 was introduced in Asian and Australian markets in 1978, but it wasn’t until the second generation was introduced – in 1986 – that it made its first appearance in the UK. Unlike on the latest model, most L200s in the 80’s were 2-wheel drive and had very low ground clearance.
The third generation went on to sell in huge numbers in the UK due to a change in the taxation. Mitsubishi exploited this by offering ‘lifestyle’ models, like the L200 Warrior and L200 Animal in the early 2000’s.
The current generation, known as the Series 5, was launched in 2015 and featured a new 2.4-litre engine, new technology and improved refinement and handling. Thanks to its competitive pricing, the Mitsubishi L200 overtook the Nissan Navara to become the second best-selling pickup truck in the UK in 2018.
Backed by a 5 year, 62,500 mile warranty, the L200 also benefits from one of the best aftersales support network from its mainly rural-based dealers. In terms of reliability, the Mitsubishi L200 ranked third in our 2017 Pickup Truck Reliability Survey.
