What’s new for the 2019 L200? Nearly everything has been improved, to a degree. The most obvious aspect, the styling, is one of the most successful redesigns we’ve seen for a long time, particularly as the core body and loadbed remain largely intact.
Make no mistake, the L200 is engineered to be good away from tarmac. It’s one of the few pick-ups to feature full-time all-wheel drive – selectable, so you can save fuel in rear-wheel drive mode, or lock the centre diff and engage low-range off road, but crucially you’re able to have four driven wheels on wet tarmac too. A strong double-wishbone front suspension, a heavy metal guard for the vulnerable radiator and carefully designed reinforcements underneath mean it’ll beat any surface into submission
