At first glance, this fifth generation L200 double cab appears more evolution than revolution but, whilst its DNA is undeniable, in reality it’s all new. It’s sleek and muscular enough to reap plenty of street cred and the way it drives will have as much impact
on the pick-up market as did the launch of the iconic fourth generation model almost ten years ago. It has a new engine, new suspension, new steering and new transmission, both manual and automatic, and that’s just the start.
Of course, the sleek shape of the new L200 isn’t designed simply to be easy on the eye, it’s designed to make it the most aerodynamically efficient double cab you can buy. This aerodynamic excellence combines with a new 2.4 litre diesel MIVEC engine to return both exceptional performance and outstanding fuel economy – as much as 27% better than any other pick-up you can buy.
Uncannily quiet, even with the windows down, the engine is smooth and refined and incredibly responsive, and its exceptional torque characteristics are superbly matched by a new six-speed manual transmission with a light, smooth shift action, or, on Warrior and Barbarian derivatives, the option of a five-speed automatic with Sports Mode manual facility and paddle shift.
