Despite that pickup in Europe and Australia aren’t as popular as in North America or Australia, the market is still big enough for numerous models. Lots of major carmakers have their players in the segment and Mitsubishi is no exception. Of course, we are talking about the well-known L200, which is also familiar as Triton in various parts of the world. Given the big numbers of strong points, we have no doubt that the 2021 Mitsubishi L200 will continue to mark pretty solid numbers in Europe. The current generation has been around since 2015 and given the last-year refresh, it’s no wonder that there are no bigger changes to come for the next year.
This means you may count on familiar design characteristics, which make this pickup truck pretty versatile. It’s more than capable of doing typical utility tasks, but also offers above-average fuel economy, attractive styling and quite comfortable ride.
2021 Mitsubishi L200 Redesign
As we already mentioned, the 2021 Mitsubishi L200 continues with familiar design characteristics. Despite that the current generation has been around since 2015, it was actually updated last year. For that occasion, we saw a completely new front end, which makes this truck look far better than before. The new model adopts the brand’s latest, Dynamic Shield design language, with styling details borrowed directly from models like Eclipse Cross and Xpander.
In Australia, where this model is known as the Frontier, the Japanese manufacturer has introduced a new version, called GSR, which is essentially the same model but with significant visual upgrades, mostly about blacked details. At this point, it’s still unknown if this version is about to be offered in the European L200 or not.
In any case, you may count on a pickup truck that offers pretty solid off-road characteristics. With about 22 millimeters of ground clearance, as well as 31 degrees of approach and 25 degrees of departure angle. That’s a quite respectable pack of numbers for the class.
Changes on the inside definitely won’t come for the next year. The 2021 Mitsubishi L200 is about to continue with the same cabin layout, which hasn’t changed much since the initial launch five years ago. This pickup truck features a typically truckish dashboard design, where you won’t find too mind fine materials, or some fancy aesthetics. Most of the cabin features quality hard plastic, which promises excellent durability and years of exploitation. On the other side, the amount of interior space isn’t spectacular, though it’s not that small either. Simply, with 118 inches in wheelbase, this model is among the smallest pickups in the class.
2021 Mitsubishi L200 Engines
Under the hood, the 2021 Mitsubishi L200 is about to continue with a well-known 2.4-liter turbodiesel. Although it features smaller displacement compared to engines that can be found under the hoods of rivals, it delivers pretty solid overall performances. You may count on a max output of nearly 180 horsepower and 430 Nm of torque, which seems more than sufficient for the segment.
On the other side, the obvious benefit of smaller displacement is pretty good fuel economy, which goes around 8.7 liters per 100 km. The max towing capacity goes around 3.100 kg.
2021 Mitsubishi L200 Release Date and Price
The 2021 Mitsubishi L200 is about to arrive by the end of the year. When it comes to the price, base models in Europe go around 35.000 euros. This may sound high, but keep in mind that we are talking about a double cab model with a diesel engine. Single cab models are not available in this part of the world and the same thing goes for a gasoline engine. Some of the key competitors are models like Nissan Navara, Isuzu D-Max, Toyota Hilux etc.
