Overall Verdict

"The Mitsubishi L200 doesn’t hide its intentions quietly. It is an unashamed, tough and versatile pick-up truck that offers a great amount of rugged, go-anywhere, tow-almost-anything ability."

Mitsubishi L200 frontright exterior

This doesn’t come totally at the expense of any form of on-road ability, and this is something that Mitsubishi made notable efforts to improve in the latest update in 2019. The steering is more accurate and there is less noise from the engine on the move versus the previous generation (the model launched in 2019 was the sixth L200) while it is also cheaper to run.


The engine choice is kept simple – there is only one engine available in the form of a 2.2-litre diesel with 150PS. It sounds, on paper at least, underpowered versus the competition as some rivals such as the Nissan Navara offer up to 190PS. It’s also less than the previous generation of the L200, which offered up to 180PS from a bigger, 2.4-litre, diesel engine.


In all other areas, though, the figures are in the L200’s favour. It’s more economical than the previous version, has a higher payload and can tow up to 3.5 tonnes. 


One thing that hasn’t really been updated since the previous version of the L200 is the interior. While some pick-ups have gone down the luxury approach hoping to tempt those who want to use their working vehicle as family transportation at the weekend, the L200 has remained a little more honest and basic.


The notable difference is the upgraded infotainment system that comes with Apple Carplay and Android Auto. Partly because of this there is no satellite navigation available at all – Mitsubishi reckons that most people will use their phone’s navigation via the screen. The overall feel of the interior is practical and hardwearing, with a few nods to family life like the USB sockets in the front and rear of the cabin.


There are only two different versions of the L200 – a Club Cab and a Double Cab. While previous versions came with a much more utilitarian single cab, this was ditched due to a lack of sales.


Both the Club Cab and the Double Cab might come with four seats but the second row in the former are fold-down versions that come with little legroom and are only best for short trips – think heading around the farm rather than trips to school, though. The Double Cab is much more the family focused of the two. It’s not a relaxed family cruiser, though, as it’s quite gruff on the move and the firm suspension means there is a fair amount of bounce when you head over speed bumps and pot holes.


The four-wheel drive system has been updated and offers 2H, 4H, 4H with centre diff lock, low range with centre lock, hill descent control and four terrain modes: gravel, mud/snow, sand, and rock. You can move from the 2H setting to the 4H on the move at speeds of up to 60mph.


The loadbay can take a maximum payload of 1,080kg, while the maximum towing capacity is 3.5-tonnes. It’s worth noting that this is just if you have a three-axle trailer – you’re limited to 3.1 tonnes if you have a two-axle trailer.


The 2019 updates bring improvements over the previous generation, but the L200 still doesn’t offer as much power or refinement as rivals like the Ford Ranger or Nissan Navara. The Mitsubishi still acquits itself well as a rugged workhorse, though, even with the lack of two-seat base model.


If you're looking for the older version, you need our Mitsubishi L200 (2019-) review.

Is the Mitsubishi L200 right for you?

The Mitsubishi L200 is the sort of vehicle you buy for a specific purpose. Whether that is carrying a team of workers around an off-road site, towing heavy trailers or carrying hefty and dirty loads.


It might not be the first choice for those that want a lifestyle pick-up truck for wholesome leisure pursuits, but it will still double as a weekend vehicle and there are enough toys to ensure that family members will not feel short changed.


Its real strengths lie in its strength, though, and it will be best suited to those who want to make use of the L200’s more durable elements. Its off-road abilities mean it will be suited to jobs down tracks or deep into woods where others wouldn’t dare to head. The decent payload and strong towing ability means you’ll be able to haul a hefty amount of that wood back with you too.

What's the best L200 model/engine to choose?

There are two generally accepted types of people who want a pick-up. If you are after a workhorse then the 4Life comes with enough kit to prevent it from being too sparse, but not much more. Air conditioning, cruise control and 16-inch alloy wheels are about the only nods to luxury. Trojan adds a bit more kit but with more of a focus on off roading. It gets DAB digital radio, forward collision monitoring and lane departure warning and auto lights and wipers among other items. The most important element is the addition of the super select 4WS.


Warrior is more of an all-rounder, with the touchscreen infotainment system, a reversing camera, super select 4WD, lane departure warning and more.


Those who want to spend more time away from tarmac might be tempted by the extra off-road equipment of Barbarian, but there is little benefit in heading further up the range. If you want a luxurious pick-up then rivals such as the Volkswagen Amarok do a better job.

What other cars are similar to Mitsubishi L200?

As an all-round pick-up the Nissan Navara is the closest equivalent to the Mitsubishi L200, with a decent amount of practicality and a cabin that is still capable of taking on family duties at the weekend.


The Isuzu D-Max is worth looking at if you are after a vehicle that is designed to take on the more workmanlike tasks, while if a leisure truck is what you want then the Volkswagen Amarok is the pick of the bunch.
