Mitsubishi has revealed its latest special edition Shogun. Features include satin black alloys
3 January 2012

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.

Our Verdict

Mitsubishi Shogun

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

I have not seen a shogun for years, which is bad considering a friend of mine's father actually owns a Mitsubishi/Saab dealership nearby. i doubt I will see any in the UK anytime soon even though it is probably a good car.

That's bloody expensive, but then again, this is a very capable and dependable car. Still, the Frost White looks ridiculous, especially with those black alloy wheels.

These modifications are atrocious! They certainly do nothing to update the appearance of the Shogun, in fact the privacy glass and black alloys just make it look more like the ancient, 'chavved-up' models I see on a daily basis.

Personally I think it looks good without being OTT...... But that price! At that money it's got a lot of very serious competition.

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

So what's the point of this? apart from the silly black wheels what's so special about this.

Should you want this buy an SG2 in white get a set of 20" wheels take it down to you local body shop and get them to spray them black you've saved yourself nearly ten grand

You can't live in the country then this morning after the recent storm there were three Shogun's of varying ages in a car park today

Way over priced and looks rediculous, has traded its practical purpose for a bling appearance. Is the strong yen the reason to blame for japanese cars being rather expensive in the UK? or are dealers being greedy

I'm confused.
The price appears competitive with the Land Cruiser and cheap next a Discovery so why all the moaning?

I've always wondered why such a good looking machine previously so prominant on British roads has fallen so far from favour.

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.

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.
