Looking for a new pickup truck? Leasewell reveals five reasons you should consider the new Mitsubishi L200!
You may have read our latest piece looking at five of the best pickups for sale this year, one of which was the Mitsubishi L200. So, what makes the Mitsubishi L200 such a popular choice for new pickup buyers? Leasewell takes a closer look!
1. The L200 pickup can haul everything you require
The Mitsubishi L200 Series 6 is built with a strengthened chassis, meaning the total load capacity of the pickup is the highest of any double cab pickup on the market at 4,125kg. This means that not only are you able to tow a class leading 3.5-tonnes, but there is also an additional 625kg payload when doing so. Most new pickups for sale can tow 3.5-tonnes, however the additional payload in many cases is so minimal that the weight of the driver and a full tank of fuel is enough to make a serious dent in that remaining payload. This is worth checking if you are looking for a pickup for towing, to ensure your weight including what is inside the vehicle itself does not take you above the legal limit.
2. The L200 pickup can tackle any terrain
The Mitsubishi L200 Series 6 offers robust handling in all conditions and can tackle any terrain thanks to its state-of-the-art four-wheel drive system. Named Super Select 4WD-II, it controls power and braking to each individual wheel of the pickup. You can easily switch between settings on the centre console and you will be treated to maximum traction and stability, whatever surface you need to tackle.
3. Excellent levels of comfort inside the pickup
The inside of the new L200 feels more like that of an upmarket SUV rather than a pickup truck. Not only is there space for all the family in the truck, but there are also lots of practical touches including USB ports and plenty of useful storage space for personal items. Seats have also been specially designed for a body-hugging fit, offering wide shoulder support and a deeper centre for maximum back support.
4. The L200 pickup is equipped with all the latest safety technology
The L200 has a fantastic reputation as a reliable and rugged pickup truck, however the new Series 6 model all receives a host of features which takes the safety of the driver and passengers to a completely new level. Technology includes an Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS); which helps to prevent minor bumps when parking, with a buzzer sounding and warning light on the dash if sensors detect a nearby obstacle, engine output is also controlled automatically if you accidentally press down on the accelerator. Lane Change Assist and a Bird’s eye view camera are also amongst a plethora safety features available with the new L200.
5. Plenty of power under the bonnet
All models of the L200 Series 6 are equipped with a 2.2-litre MIVEC Di-D engine which offers an excellent balance between power and efficiency. The engine is also extremely lightweight due to it being created from an all-aluminium alloy engine block, which helps in delivering the class leading carrying capacity mentioned above.
