Mitsubishi Motors Ireland is delighted to announce the introduction of the all New L200 Double Cab model. The new Mitsubishi L200 is the latest version of our popular L200 pick-up, which celebrated its 40th birthday just last year. It is produced at the Laem Chabang Plant operated by Mitsubishi Motors (Thailand) Co. Ltd. (MMTh), MMC’s producer and distributor in Thailand. The vehicle is a global strategic model, which will eventually be sold in some 150 countries around the globe – Europe, ASEAN markets, Oceania, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. Overall, the new model features significant improvements and enhancements to the durability and reliability required by the commercial user and to the comfort and ride sought by the private user. Newly sculpted body curves with contrasting sharp lines, extended wheel flares and bright accents embody the strength of a Mitsubishi Motors truck and add modernity. The lighting and bumper parts become part of the tough design, framing the front and rear designs and adding visual width.
The restyled interior of the L200 expresses a modern and robust feeling with frame surroundings for the switch panel and air outlets. A high quality look is created by soft pad materials and stitching on the floor console, armrests and parking brake. New L200 4WD models are fitted with wither Super-Select 4WD, which delivers optimum traction and handling characteristics for any given surface, or Easy- Select 4WD, which simplifies switching between drive modes for different road surfaces. With the addition of new drive modes, both 4WD systems deliver improved off-road performance. The all New L200 retains the current model’s high-durability, high-reliability ladder-type frame and high impact-safety cabin structure while featuring class- leading advanced active safety and driver assistance systems.
Providing convenient driver assistance are the Multi Around View Monitor, which generates a bird’s eye view image of the area around the vehicle, and Parking Sensors. Braking performance and feel are improved with the use of larger front discs and caliper pistons; Ride is improved with the use of larger rear dampers which contain more damping oil; Changing to a 6-speed A/T from the current 5-speed A/T to allow smoother, more powerful acceleration and improved refinement. This a machine Mitsubishi are looking to lead the sector with. It will offer significantly more competition than the outgoing model.
