NEW L200 CHALLENGER HAS STUNNING LOOKS AND BEST EVER VALUE FOR MONEY
Mitsubishi Motors in the UK is pleased to announce the new L200 Challenger – the best value for money pick-up ever from Mitsubishi Motors in the UK.
The Mitsubishi 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 L200 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.
The new addition priced from £16,499 is fully loaded with value adding specification. L200 Challenger goes on sale from 1st January 2015.

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.
All L200 variants are powered by Mitsubishi’s 4D56 2.5-litre turbocharged and intercooled diesel engine, featuring 16 valves driven by dual overhead camshafts and a common-rail direct injection system for precise fuel delivery, lowering consumption and emissions.
Super Select 4WD
Also found in the Shogun, the highly capable Super Select system provides the L200 with four drive modes: 2H (2WD High range) gives quieter running and better fuel consumption during normal on-road driving: 4H (4WD High range), selectable at speeds up to 62mph, distributes torque between front and rear axles via a centre differential (CD) with viscous coupling unit (VCU) – the latter permits safer on-road driving in slippery conditions; 4HLc (4WD High range with CD locked) improves traction on snow, sand or dirt roads by distributing torque equally front and rear; 4LLc (4WD Low range with CD locked) provides greater torque for extreme off-road conditions.
M-ASTC (Mitsubishi Active Stability and Traction Control)
Active Stability Control – If sensors located throughout the vehicle detect unstable movement, such as lateral slippage, the Stability Control function automatically controls the brakes and engine output to stabilise the vehicle.
Traction Control – If the sensors detect wheel slip when starting on slick surfaces, such as a snow-covered road, the Traction Control function automatically brakes the slipping wheel and governs engine output to enable a smoother start.
ABS with EBD
Lateral slippage can easily occur if the rear wheels lock up due to braking hard on slippery surfaces or braking hard when at high speeds. ABS suppresses this by controlling the brakes’ hydraulic pressure. EBD adjusts the rear wheels’ braking force to the number of occupants and load to deliver braking force that is ideally matched to almost any situation.
The L200’s front suspension system is adapted from the Shogun, double wishbones and coil springs providing superior ride comfort and surefooted cornering. At the rear, tough rigid elliptic leaf springs are fitted, to ensure the one-tonne payload can be safely supported.
The L200 adopts the Shogun’s rack & pinion steering system, providing a class-leading turning circle and better steering accuracy than a traditional recirculating ball system.
The central LCD screen displays a range of useful driving information, including fuel economy, average speed, compass, clock and external temperature.
