After L200 Geoseek, they announced another special edition from this company. It’s the 2018 Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP II. Unfortunately, only 250 copies are planned. Also, it will not be available in the North American market. Orders are currently up to date, and the first models will be available in May this year. It is based on the standard Mitsubishi L200 model, with a lot of differences in the exterior and interior design. Primarily compete with special releases of Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger.
This Special Vehicle Project (SVP) has a new SVP grille (mix body and orange paint), orange roof rails, and several other elements in orange color. Notable are LED daytime running lights, Bi-Xenon headlights, halogen rear lights and round fog lamps. Of course, the bumpers are the colors of the body. For now, it only offers pearlescent diamond black and metallic atlantic gray exterior color. However, we believe that it will offer another special variant. In cabin there are six variants Barbarian leather seats, Alston inserts, as well as several SVP logos and badges. In addition, there is a 7-inch touch screen on the central console and automatic climate control.
The external dimensions are similar to the standard L200 model, but it will probably be a bit easier. It will also have the same payload and towing capacity. Placed at 17-inch bespoke black and orange alloy wheels with BF Goodrich all-terrain tires. Available is only Dual Cab with four doors, available for up to five passengers.
Like the standard model, it will have a 2.4-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel engine. The production of this engine is likely to be 178 hp and 317 lb-ft (430 Nm) of torque. Of course, the drive is on the rear wheels or all four wheels (Super Select 4WD system), combined with six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission. Fuel consumption data are still unknown. However, regardless of the choice of gearbox or type of drive, combined fuel consumption is likely to be no less than 30 mpg.
As announced, the basic gray and black versions of the 2018 Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP II will cost £ 29,830 ($ 42,220).
