Mitsubishi Strada L200 Introduction
The pioneer of the Double cab culture – Mitsubishi L200 Strada – was a popular truck all over the world and continues to enjoy popularity as a used vehicle now. It was 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 stood out as a superb truck with a subtle combination of the beauty and the beast.
In 2006 Mitsubishi decided to retire Mitsubishi L200 Strada in favour of Mitsubishi L200 Triton. Please see http://www.jim4x4.com/triton.html for its specifications.
Two Mitsubishi trucks won top 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 cab is so far ahead it’s in a league of its own!
