New features for the 2012 Mitsubishi Shogun

It’s all change at Mitsubishi Motors’ with the new arrival of the 2012 Shogun model.

The Shogun has been a popular sight both on and off the road in the UK and the previous re-vamp of this 4×4 has allowed a progressive evolution of Mitsubishi’s classic off-roading status symbol. The four-wheel drive go-anywhere ability with bold, muscular styling  now comes with a Euro V compliant turbo diesel engine and offers a choice of either three door short-wheel base or five door long-wheel base versions.

Like its predecessor, the Mitsubishi Shogun is immediately distinguished by its redesigned bold front grille – incorporating a short front overhang, upright windscreen, strong high flanks, flared wheel-arches and rear-mounted spare wheel – all key Shogun styling cues that underline its tough, authentic, off-road ability.

As well as the three and five door options, Shogun buyers will have a choice of a four model line-up – the SG2, SG3, SG4 and the familiar Warrior which, in terms of specification will sit above the SG2. As always, the Shogun comes packed with an array of standard safety and luxury equipment. In addition to the re-designed front grille, all variants will benefit from new 18” alloy wheels.

The Shogun is a true work horse, as we know all too well and the latest updates continue to improve this 4×4 model.

  • New chrome grille with slotted bars and thick dividers on either sides
