Mitsubishi L200 Overview

The Mitsubishi L200 is classed as a compact pick-up truck and is produced by the Japanese motor company Mitsubishi Motors. Different variations of this vehicle have been in production since 1978. This vehicle is also known as the Mitsubishi Triton, Rodeo, Magnum and Storm to name but a few of the other names used worldwide. The L200 looks really good and has really good suspension, making it good on rough surfaces. Although it has good suspension it is not the best ride and is not very well refined. It lacks in safety but does have amazing tax benefits. Sound anything like your experience of the L200?

Mitsubishi L200 nHistory

The first generation (1978-86) was introduced in 1978 and was sold as the Mitsubishi Forte. This truck was also marketed as the Dodge Ram50 and Chrysler Arrow Truck in the USA. A four wheel drive version was introduced in 1982 and this vehicle was fast becoming one of the most popular pick-ups worldwide.

The second generation (1987-96) was again sold under many different names worldwide, and the L200 was the name given to the European version. There were many variants of this vehicle available including crew cab and double cab.

The third generation (1996-2005) had a new 2.5L diesel engine available and it had a minor facelift in 2001 which gave it new headlights as well as some other minor alterations.

The fourth generation (2005-present) underwent a real change to its appearance. It is much smoother and rounder in design, making it very attractive looking. This is the current version on the market.
