Produced by Mitsubishi Motors (Thailand) Co., Ltd, the new Triton (known as L200, Storm on export markets) builds on the success of its predecessor, including:

- Over 700,000 units exported out of Thailand since 1988

- FIA Cross Country Rally World Cup Winner in 2003

-Race-bred styling

Previewed during the 2005 Dakar Rally as “Truck Evolution”, the new L200 owes much of its design inspiration to the 2002 Pajero Evo 2+2 concept and the Pajero Evolution racer, with its nearly identical sharp lines, evocative Mitsubishi “Mount Fuji” grille and firm stance.

Elaborating on this theme, Mitsubishi Motors designers approached the pickup concept with fresh eyes. They turned the bed into a bold styling feature, instead of a mere box, and gave the cabin the largest interior room in the segment, as expected from a Sports Utility Truck (S.U.T.).

Driving machine Available in Single Cab, Club Cab and four-door Double Cab body types, the new L200 will also add high driving standards to the mid-size pickup equation, with its contemporary SUV-like permanent Super Select 4-wheel drive system, active stability and traction control with 17” wheels and a tight, class-leading turning circle.

Triton offers all the key work-related attributes, whilst being eminently capable on and off-road, thanks to its totally redesigned hydro-formed fully boxed frame and new independent front suspension and rear live axle set-up.

Engine options in Thailand include: 1, 2.5-liter Indirect Turbodiesel (4D56) capable of 90 PS @ 4000 rpm and 197 Nm @ 2000 rpm 2, 2.5-liter DI-D Hyper Common Rail Turbo (4D56), capable of 116 PS @ 4000 rpm and 247 Nm @ 2000 rpm 3, 2.5-liter DI-D Hyper Common Rail Turbo Intercooler (4D56), capable of 140 PS @ 4000 rpm and 321 Nm @ 2000 rpm 4, 3.2-liter DI-D Hyper Common Rail Turbo Intercooler (4M41), capable of 165 PS @ 4000 rpm and 351 Nm @ 2000 rpm.

Mitsubishi Strada L200 Introduction

The pioneer of the Double cab culture - Mitsubishi Strada - is a popular truck all over the world. It is marketed under various names, it is Storm in Malaysia, Triton in Australia, L200 in Europe and Colt in South Africa. No matter what the name, Strada stands out as a superb truck which is a subtle combination of the beauty and the beast.

Mitsubishi has introduced its brand new 2006 model christened Triton. Please see for its specifications.

Two Mitsubishi trucks won best accolades in the Thailand Car of the Year Awards presented at the 26th Bangkok International Motor Show on March 30, 2005. At a ceremony on March 28, the organizers of the show presented the Mitsubishi Grandis minivan (Space Wagon in Thailand) with the Best MPV Award and the Strada pickup with the Best Export Pickup Award.

L200 is undoubtedly a leader in its class. Its been voted Best Pick-up by UK's "What Van?" Magazine 6 times in the last 8 years! This is an outstanding vehicle designed with reliability, style and performance in mind. Single, Club or Double cab pick-up can cope will all your business needs and if off road is a must the L200 benefits from the technology derived from the Shogun's 4 wheel drive dominance. This cab is so far ahead it's in a league of its own! In the Philippines, the Strada is one of the favorites in pick-up category and it remained the number one bestseller 4x4 pick-up from 1997 to 2003 while the Grandis, which was just introduced this January, is fast becoming a popular high end MPV.

Strada is available in Single Cabs (2.5 and 2.5 with P/S) and Megacabs version. The concept of Megacab encompasses both Extra and Double Cabs. Megacab is available in 2WD (2.5, 2.5 GL, 2.8 GLX manual and auto) and 4WD (Super 2.8 GLS and 2.5 VG Turbo GLS) versions.

Here we deal with Single, Club or Double Cab in slightly more detail.

Single Cab
Single cab 2 wheel drive can carry an impressive 1160kg payload. You can choose from the Single cab 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive. The L200 is quite simply the most credible pick-up you'll ever find.


Club or Crew or Extra Cab
The 4WD Club Cab is equally at home cruising the highways or exploring the wilderness. But with its extra-large cargo bed, the Club Cab is ready, willing and able to handle the toughest on- or off-road labour. With the roomiest interior in its class, it offers not only leg-, hip- and shoulder-room, but also a comfortable, user-friendly driving experience.


Double or G-Cab
Power comes as standard in an L200 with the 2.5 litre turbo charged 113 bhp diesel engine, delivering a massive 177lbs. Ft. at just 2000 rpm and will happily pull a mighty 2700kg. The Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab will deal with whatever you throw at it!!

Strada Exterior

Cargo to haul? Room to spare.
You'll be hard pressed to fill the easy-access cargo bed to capacity - but that doesn't sbest most L200 drivers from trying. Roomy enough for recreational gear and tough enough for working materials, the cargo bed of the L200 also has a double-walled structure supporting long-term performance.

Easy to enter... Hard to leave.
The freedom you need. The comfort you demand. The driver-oriented cockpit of the L200 lets you work the way you want while placing everything within easy reach. All-round visibility enhances safety while building on a satisfying sense of space - just ask your passengers. Sporty features like the multi-meter hint at off-roading fun. An environment that's practical, durable and downright enjoyable - just remember to spend some time at your destination before piling back in for the ride home.









L200 Performance

Feel the power. Know the difference.

A broad choice of available engines makes it easy to select the power package that suits your needs. For powerful performance that's as well-suited to leisure as it is to your workload, the Intercooled Turbocharged diesel version offers a balance of power and comfort through maximized torque at low rpm. There are also normally aspirated diesel models that deliver plenty of torque for everyday driving. Whichever model you select, and whatever your needs, the L200 has the power to satisfy.

Engine line-up

A choice of three diesel engines comprising the 2.5-liter engine with or without an intercooled turbocharger and the 2.8-liter intercooled, turbocharged engine. The 2.8-liter model comes equipped with 4-speed automatic transmission, while all models blend impressive torque with high power and economic performance.

Built to work. Bred to rally.

The hard-working L200 inherits all the handling brilliance of Mitsubishi's long line of rallying champions. So it's more than ready to take on the toughest jobs you can throw at it. And when the work's done, rally-proven Easy Select 4WD will gladly take you and your off-road friends wherever your adventurous spirit leads you.


Easy Select 4WD

(Double Cab 4WD 2.5 Intercooled Turbocharged Diesel only) Enabling smooth control from the comfort of the driver's seat, this 4WD system uses three transfer modes to deliver high-speed driving comfort and ensure superior traction on a variety of challenging surfaces. When conquering the roughest terrain, shift between 4H and 4L only with the L200 fully stopped. You can shift on the fly between 2H and 4H at speeds of up to 100km/h, thanks to the free-wheel front differential.


Part-time 4WD

Designed especially for the practical L200 user, this Part-time 4WD system handles heavy-duty workloads with easy maintenance. The driver is required to sbest the car and manually engage/disengage 4WD.


4 -speed automatic transmission

(2.8-liter Intercooled Turbocharged Diesel only) The 4A/T features a hold mode button for even smoother performance.


Front double-wishbone & rear rigid leaf-spring suspensions

The front suspension provides responsive handling, greater stability and enhanced riding comfort. The rear suspension offers the benefit of wider tracks that provide greater stability, especially during cornering.


L200 Safety: Active Safety

Safety first. Strength that lasts.

Rigorous rally experience has benefited the L200 in all areas of its development, including such high-priority aspects as safety and durability. The L200 is built to protect both occupants and cargo.


ABS (Anti-lock Braking System)

During hard braking and on slippery roads, ABS helps to prevent wheel-lock and maintain steering control.

EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution)

When braking with many people or a heavy load onboard, EBD maximizes braking force in the rear wheels, regardless of road conditions.

Rear LSD (Limited Slip Differential)

Provides superior traction in slippery conditions through transferal of driving torque from a slipping wheel to one which has traction.

Passive Safety

Driver’s airbag

An SRS front airbag inflates in the event of a frontal impact, offering maximized protection when used in conjunction with the 3-point ELR (Emergency Locking Retractor) seatbelts in front.

Front and rear seatbelts

Front 3-point ELR and rear 3-pont ELR/ALR seatbelts on Double Cab models help reduce occupant injures.

Body construction

Embracing front and rear crushable zones and strategic reinforcements that absorb and redirect collision impact energy, the body construction of the L200 provides maximum safety for driver and passengers in the event of an accident.

Durable ladder frame

The L200’s strong ladder frame, with large side-members, increases torsional rigidity for improved safety and durability.

Anti-trapping power windows

Safety Equipment

The L200's comprehensive safety systems are proof positive that at Mitsubishi, occupant protection is at least as important as ride comfort or driving performance.

Active safety systems - which help drivers avoid accidents - include LSPV-assisted brakes and optional ABS. Passive systems - which help reduce occupant injuries should an accident occur - include a highly rigid ladder frame and extensive interior use of fire-retardant materials.

Selected models enhance passive safety with SRS airbags complementing the standard 3-point seatbelts.

Other available safety measures include child-proof door locks on the rear doors of Double Cab models, a limited-slip differential on 4WD models, side door impact bars and high-mount brake lamp. Security can be significantly increased with an optional

engine immobiliser.

Reinforced body

Computer-aided design and engineering were used in making the L200's body as rigid - and subsequently safe in a collision - as possible.




Load-Sensing Proportioning Valve (LSPV)

The LSPV uses cargo-bed sensors to proportion rear brake hydraulic pressure to cargo bed weight, effectively preventing the brakes from locking regardless of cargo bed load

The sturdy ladder frame's reinforced front side-members minimise body deformation for improved protection from frontal impact. Monocoque A-pillars plus connecting front deck cross-members further increase body rigidity.



Load Bearing

The L200's cargo bed is not only one of the largest in its class, it's also one of the strongest, with double-wall construction for increased durability and protection against rust. The rest of the L200's body is no less corrosion-resistant, with galvanised steel used in more than 60% of panels



While Grandis moniker is reserved for minivan in other markets, Grandis line boasts pickups as well in Thailand.

Mitsubishi Motors brought Grandis to market in Japan in May 2003 as a lifestyle enriching next-generation minivan. Grandis went on sale throughout Thailand in October 2004.

Grandis is available in 2WD (2.5 and 2.8 GLX liter engine) and 4WD (2.8 Turbo GLS and 2.8 Super GLS).
