Mitsubishi is worldwide known for its usual sedans, crossovers and ordinary SUVs like other car manufacturers like Toyota and Honda. What the company does good is making these ordinary products, or specifically saying the Mitsubishi L300. The Mitsubishi L300 is a mid-size pickup truck with high ground clearance and very good off-road capabilities. The car is also known for its reliability, the only reason why Mitsubishi's still exist while their competitors are very strong.
The price in Pakistan is relatively expensive for its category and capabilities but keeping the fact in mind that the car has to be imported. The Mitsubishi L300 is available in the market for as high as 7million to 12million Pakistani rupees. The price is in accordance with the model and its condition.
Mitsubishi L300 has very strong competitors in Commercial Vehicles in Pakistan. The original competitor is the famous Toyota Hilux. But there are still new competitors which are around its price range, these are the Ford F-150 and the Toyota Tundra.
The Mitsubishi is unknown to the people of Pakistan as it has never been imported here. The car is best known in the United States where there are two variants available, the Mitsubishi L200 which is the petrol model and the L300 which is the diesel model. The car is known for its off-road capability and usefulness due to an open deck.
The Mitsubishi L300 is a mid-size pickup truck and a proper sports utility vehicle. The car has 4 passenger doors and a rear open deck. It can seat up to 5 people as it has two cabins. The engine is not fast or has agile handling and by the way, it looks, you won't expect it to. If talking about going off-road, the car has all-wheel drive and can pretty much handle such terrain but would not be so good on mud or sand as the heavy body will sink in.
The Mitsubishi L300 comes with a very humble interior but does have the noticeable technology for its time back then and the Mitsubishi L300 is way better now in terms of interior, the Mitsubishi L300 has a grey plastic dashboard with a stereo player, a speedometer with rpm, a lighter and ashtray, air conditioner, heater. The Mitsubishi L300 comes with automatic windows, mobile phone and wallet holders and had leather seat covers in some variants.
The Mitsubishi L300 comes with only one engine option which is a diesel. It is a 2.5 liter or a 2500cc displacement inline 4cylinder diesel engine. The car has a decent size fuel tank but the fuel economy or consumption is quite poor and the car spills fuel wildly. Still, the car does pretty well in accordance with its competitors. The engine has very good power for any off-road adventure but is not very quick.
One of the most amazing things about Mitsubishi L300 and other cars from Japan is that they are strongly built and are long-lasting. These cars in Pakistan are taken to rallies, off-road adventures and are still seen on the roads even though some of these cars are very old.
