AUTO Styling Truckman has launched its Truckman Grand hardtop for the 2015 Mitsubishi L200 Series 5 pick-up truck as the first in a new series of hardtop models for leisure and commercial applications.
One of the most fully-featured hardtops on the market, the UK designed Truckman Grand has been unveiled following an extensive research and development programme to compliment the design of the new model L200.
In addition to a range for the Mitsubishi L200 Series 5, the company is developing hardtops for new pick-up trucks set to be introduced to the UK market in the next few months including models from Nissan and Toyota.
We have focused on developing a new generation of hardtops that not only meet the requirements of our commercial and leisure customers, but also share the high quality design and manufacture and attention to detail of the new model pick-up trucks
Mike Wheeler, managing director of Auto Styling Truckman, said: “The Truckman Grand is a high specification hardtop that complements the design, practicality and performance of the Mitsubishi L200 Series 5. It increases the flexibility and security of the L200’s truck bed without comprising on style.”
He added: “This is an exciting period of the pick-up truck market with the leading manufacturers bringing new models to market in the coming months. We have focused on developing a new generation of hardtops that not only meet the requirements of our commercial and leisure customers, but also share the high quality design and manufacture and attention to detail of the new model pick-up trucks.”
The cab-high hardtop sits flush with the L200’s cab which, together with the sleek styling of its rear door complementing the vehicle’s tailgate, fully-integrates the Truckman Grand into the pick-up’s design.
A further innovation to the hardtop’s design is a new tailgate handle with lock cover, which provides a practical benefit of protecting the lock from road dirt while delivering another enhancement to the automotive styling of the Truckman Grand.
In addition, Auto Styling Truckman can supply the hardtop in all L200 colour codes from its extensive stock held at its West Midlands-based facility.
Among its key features is remote locking technology, which can be incorporated into the L200’s central locking system, heated rear screen and an automatic interior light, which illuminates the load area when the tailgate is opened.
The Truckman Grand also includes a wiring harness with fitting instructions and 55kg capacity roof bars for additional storage.
The hardtop’s opening bulkhead window provides additional ventilation along with pop-out side windows – which can only be opened from the inside – all of which feature tinted glass to further increase security of the truck bed.
The Truckman Grand retails at £1,591.38 including VAT and is available from www.autostylinguk.com
