The Mitsubishi Shogun has spawned the Black special edition, which is based on the range-topping long wheelbase SG4 and offers a new styling kit. Mitsubishi hopes the Shogun Black will widen the appeal of the SUV with satin black trim pack, which includes 20-inch alloy wheels, spoiler, wing mirrors, grille and headlamp bezels and side steps.

Despite its name, the Shogun Black will be available in a range of metallic colours, as well as solid Frost White, pictured.

The announcement comes less than three months after the introduction of revisions for the 2012 model year, which marked the arrival of a Euro V-compliant engine and improvements to the cabin. Standard equipment in the SG4 includes Mitsubishi’s Communication System, which counts sat-nav and a reversing camera among its features.

The Mitsubishi Shogun Black is available at dealers now, priced at £41,999 – £1000 more than the SG4, with an additional £540 charge for metallic paint.

Mitsubishi Shogun

The Mitsubishi Shogun has its appeal. It needs more chassis finesse, but is still charming

Re: Special edition Shogun revealed

I do like the Shogun, but dont at all like this blak trim all over it. It just makes it look like a base model that has Plastic on all the trim to save money. Made even worse on a White vehicle.

The price appears competitive with the Land Cruiser and cheap next a Discovery so why all the moaning?

Because a Land Cruiser is miles better and the Disco even more so.

The Shogun is ancient that's why. While it's not a bad car it's very, very outdated and a poor drive on British roads compared to the others you mention.
