Mitsubishi L200 Trojan - 2020, blue, on rocks

Mitsubishi is adding an extra trim level to its latest L200 Series 6 pickup range – and for once it’s not a high-priced special edition.

Instead the new L200 Trojan becomes the cheapest lifestyle model, slipping into the line-up between the working 4Life variants and the existing Warrior double cab.

How much does the L200 Trojan cost?

You can buy the standard manual gearbox version for £24,699, or opt for a six-speed automatic for £26,119.

Both amounts are on-the-road, but exclude VAT.

As with all Series 6 L200s, the Trojan is powered by a 150hp 2.3-litre turbodiesel engine. This is one of the least powerful options on the pickup market in the UK, but it meets all the very latest emissions regulations and is still claimed able to tow 3.5 tonnes (with a three-axle trailer).

What do you get for the money?

The Trojan features all the same exterior bling (do people still say bling?) as the more expensive Warrior and Barbarian versions of the L200 – which means you get 18-inch alloy wheels and lots of chrome.

On the inside, however, it does without the touchscreen infotainment system (which also means no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto) and you only get cloth seats. But there is a DAB radio and it is still fitted with climate control, remote locking and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.

Super Select 4WD is also standard, alongside Mitsubishi’s Forward Collision Mitigation System (autonomous emergency braking), a lane departure warning system, seven airbags, automatic lights and wipers, hill-start assist and trailer sway control.

So is it good value?

Well, it comes in at nearly £2,000 cheaper than an L200 Warrior, but looks the same to a casual observer and should deliver the same driving experience.

Despite the reduction in power versus the older L200 Series 5 (which is still available from stock at Mitsubishi in the form of the Challenger run-out model), we continue to like the way it drives – and it still scooped a runner’s up spot in our 2020 Pickup of the Year Award.

So it’s definitely worth a look.
