The Mitsubishi L200 Trojan 2020 is now available to order, Mitsubishi Motors UK has confirmed. The new mid-spec trim costs £24,699 plus VAT – over £2,000 more than the standard 4Life double-cab and £2,000 less than the Warrior.
Mitsubishi L200 Trojan 2020 specification
As you would expect with a model priced just above the fleet-focused and utilitarian 4Life models, the new Trojan is fairly basic inside – not that you could tell from the outside.
You’d be hard pressed to tell the difference between the Trojan and higher-end models like the Warrior or Barbarian from the exterior. The Trojan sports 18-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured bumpers and chrome finishes to the front grille, mirrors and exterior door handles; although it lacks LED lights.
It’s also relatively well-furnished on the inside too, with climate control, a DAB radio with Bluetooth and USB ports, air conditioning and Super Select II 4WD system – which we consider to be the best in the pickup truck segment.
However, you can feel the penny pinching. There is no touchscreen display; chrome surrounds or finishes and there’s just a basic cloth interior and a manual turn-key ignition.
Safety as standard
The Trojan also benefits from a host of Mitsubishi’s advanced safety systems Forward Collision Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning and automatic lights and wipers, along with active stability and traction control, seven airbags, Hill Start Assist and Trailer Stability Control systems that are standard across the L200 range.
L200 Series 6 update
Mitsubishi has labelled the current model the ‘Series 6’ although very little distinguishes it from the Series 5 – introduced in 2015 – below the surface. The biggest difference has been the engine, which has exactly the same cylinder block but a smaller stroke than the previous 2.4-litre engine.
Due to the smaller stroke, the displacement has reduced from 2,442cc (2.4-litre) to 2,268cc (2.3-litre) and the output has fallen from a maximum of 178hp and 430Nm to 150hp and 400Nm.
