The UK is the first country to receive a new special edition derivative of the facelifted Mitsubishi Triton.
It’s called the L200 (Mitsubishi uses L200 nomenclature in other parts of the world) Trojan and it features a number of stylish upgrades.
These include 18-inch alloy wheels, chrome front grille, exterior door handles and door mirrors.
It’s powered by the same 2.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine as found in the South African version.
The Mitsubishi L200 Trojan comes complete with a host of safety equipment such as Forward Collision Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning and automatic lights and wipers, along with active stability and traction control, seven airbags, Hill Start Assist and Trailer Stability Control systems that are standard across the L200 range.
This is the biggest difference between the UK version of the Triton and the local bakkie. While it has the usual standard safety kit, we don’t get the Triton featuring the advanced safety systems like Forward Collision Mitigation and Lane Departure Warning.
