Mitsubishi New L200 Long Bed

A new variant of Mitsubishi's L200 with an extended bed and increased power has been introduced in the UK. The most prominent feature of the L200 Long Bed that will run alongside existing L200 Standard Bed variants is of course its longer bed that has been extended by 18cm or 7 inches in overall length, without affecting the passenger cabin space. Furthermore, the Japanese automaker says that the cargo area is also higher and squarer at the rear, increasing carrying volume.

In addition to the extended bed, the new variant of the L200 that is initially available in Double Cab 4Work, 4Life and high-series Warrior and Animal variants, comes with a more potent version of the firm's 2.5-liter turbo diesel engine that produces 176HP, up from 134HP in the L200 Warrior and 166HP in the L200 Animal.

AN EXTRA SEVEN INCHES AND A BIT MORE POKE – NOW WHAT COULD YOU DO WITH THAT?

  • Mitsubishi announces its new L200 double cab Long Bed option
  • An extra 7 inches (18 cms) in load length and 42 bhp more power to give that extra bit of ‘poke'

Mitsubishi Motors in the UK has now released the latest version of the L200 pick up truck, offering more load length and more power to end-users. It may not come as too much of a surprise that Mitsubishi's planned marketing campaign will ask the questions “what would you do with an extra 7 inches and a bit more poke?”

More load-carrying capacity
The L200 Long Bed will run alongside existing L200 Standard Bed variants and will feature load beds extended by 18cm in overall length, with no reduction in passenger cabin space. The cargo area is also higher and squarer at the rear, increasing carrying volume.

The L200 Animal Long Bed also benefits from an increased engine output of 176 bhp (previously 166 bhp), in addition to standard luxury specification items such as: Animal leather seats, Bluetooth, DVD satellite navigation with 7” screen, chrome door recess covers, fuel filler cap and tailgate cover, illuminated door entry guards, and chrome lamp bezels.
