Pricing announced for new L200
The model line-up and pricing for the new L200 pick-up were announced by Mitsubishi. In showrooms from the end of February 2006, many prices were reduced from the outgoing range with prices starting at £12,249 CVOTR for the 4Work 4WD single cab rising to £19,999 CVOTR for the new range-topping double cab Elegance.
Strong residual values predicted. Motor industry barometers CAP Monitor and EurotaxGlass’s hailed Mitsubishi’s new L200 pick-up as the clear segment leader for predicted residual values. The April edition of CAP Monitor confirmed that after three years and 60,000 miles the new L200 Warrior will retain around 48 per cent of its original value. As an example, the Warrior automatic priced at £17,799 CVOTR is expected to be worth £8,150 after three years.
L200 Club Cab and the Single Cab Tipper launched
With four body-styles launched and a wide range of specifications available to suit all business needs, Mitsubishi now boasted one of the most comprehensive range of pick-ups on the market.
The Club Cab’s two-door with rear bench seat configuration provides the flexibility of either being able to carry four adults or providing additional space for secure stowage of tools and equipment. It also boasts a load bed 1.8 m long – 48 cm longer than that of the double cab. Available in 4Work, 4Life and Warrior variations, all Club Cabs feature a 2.5-litre turbo-diesel engine and come with easy-select four-wheel-drive plus rear diff-lock across the range.
The L200 Tipper has been created in conjunction with one of the UK’s most respected conversion companies, Southampton-based VFS. The flat 2405 x 1650 cm tipper bed is supported by a powder-coated sub-frame and surrounded by aluminium side and tail boards with six load-lashing points. The conversion also includes thermoplastic mudguards and a tubular rear-cab protector with infill panels and ladder stops, plus locking toolboxes located either side of the sub-frame.
Raging Bull Limited Edition launched
Badged the L200 Raging Bull to tie in with Vickery’s exclusive performance clothing company, the new model comes with £2,000 worth of extras for free. Only available in vibrant Aztec Red and as a Double Cab vehicle, the L200 Raging Bull includes a number of unique features. Most obvious is the dramatic Raging Bull motif at the base of the driver and passenger doors. It’s also stitched into the back support of the leather front seats, and stamped into the front door entry guards.
