Revised Mitsubishi L200 Pick-Up Available Now

From time to time I like to feature pick-up trucks by way of a change. In the last year I have tried a couple and thoroughly enjoyed the experience on each occasion. The high riding stance, the versatility and the general ruggedness appeal to the inner outdoors-man lurking beneath the city clothes. Obviously conceived as working vehicles they have nevertheless captured the interest of regular motorists. In the USA it seems that everybody owns at least one and they are catching on here too. As a result – without losing sight of the original purpose – they have become more civilised and upmarket, just like the new one on this page, in fact.
Mitsubishi Motors in the UK have announced the new L200 Challenger – the best value for money pick-up ever from this company. The L200 pioneered the pick-up segment with its refined engine and high levels of safety, comfort and equipment. The company continues to innovate in the pick-up market by adding the Challenger to its already robust, versatile and appealing range.
The L200 range comes with the longest warranty of any pick-up truck in the UK – five years or 125,000 miles. It is also available with a three-year fixed price service plan at £600 and a range of finance options, including Contract Hire.
Mitsubishi UK has sold over 130,000 L200 pick-up’s since the launch in 1987 and continue to be a strong contender accounting for 20% of the overall pick- up market.
The new addition priced from £16,499 is fully loaded with value added specification. It is on sale now. Here’s the spec:
175bhp engine
Super Select 4WD system
M-ASTC (Stability & Traction system)
17” alloy wheels
Cruise control
Climate control air conditioning
Automatic rain & dusk sensors
Privacy glass
Leather steering wheel & gear shift knob
Optional leather seats
Long load bed
Available in all colours in the existing range.
The new L200 Challenger comes with renowned Mitsubishi reliability as standard. But for even greater piece of mind all it comes with the Mitsubishi Assistance Package (MAP) which includes 24/7 UK home and roadside breakdown assistance, and European roadside assistance in over 30 European countries. Seems like a good addition to this growing sector.
