Car of the Week: Mitsubishi L200 Triton




Hey Guys

Todays "Car of the Week", a Mitsubishi thats "also called" List is longer than the average accessories list when you're ordering a Rolls Royce. . .

So, now, more about the Mitsubishi Forte (1978–86), Mitsubishi L200, Mitsubishi L200 Strakar (1999-present), Mitsubishi L200 Triton, Mitsubishi Mighty Max (1982–96), Mitsubishi Storm, Mitsubishi Strada, Mitsubishi Warrior, Mitsubishi Magnum, Mitsubishi Colt Bakkie and last but for the future definitely not least name, Mitsubishi Sportero.

But in general the models are known as L2000 and are in Production since 1978. Since then there were 4 Generations of this compact pickup available. In 1978 it came as an import model, this time called Forte (in Japan), and was releated to the Dodge Ram-60 and the Plymouth Arrow, as they were developed in partnership with Chrysler.

In 1991 the second Generation got introduced and got also the name Strada, beside the L200. In 1996 the third Generation followed, still known as L2000 ;) To celebrate their success in the Rallye Dakar in 2005 there was a special "Dakar" version of the L200 available, with DAKAR badges on the fenders.

Then, in 2006 the forth and latest model of this SUT (Sport Utility Truck) came on the market, now also know as the Mitsubishi Triton. Its available as a Crew Cab and Single Cab.

(A little add to the pictures ... you know the situation when you're just too obsessed with something and then your "creativity"'s going crazy? The result is in the pictures..(Chocolate Macaroons ftw!))

ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (ABC)Subfunction of the suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension has four suspension struts with hydraulic cylinders to set the force individually in each suspension strut, thus all but completely eliminating the lifting, rolling and pitching motion of the vehicle body. Various acceleration sensors send information about the current driving situation to the control unit which, in turn, compares this information with the data received from the pressure sensors in the suspension struts and the level sensors on the axle links. Based on the results of this comparison, the system calculates control signals which are then converted into precisely measured oil flows by servohydraulic values at the front and rear axle.
