INTRODUCING THE NEW FACE OF THE LEGENDARY MITSUBISHI SHOGUN

Oct 1, 2014

CIRENCESTER – The Mitsubishi Shogun range has a bold new front end styling, as model year 2015 goes on sale, distinguished by a deeper more integrated grille and smart LED daytime running lights.

The styling changes represent a progressive evolution of Mitsubishi’s tough and authentic off-roader. It retains its go-anywhere bold and muscular presence, characterised by its short front overhang, upright windscreen, strong high flanks, flared wheel-arches and rear-mounted spare wheel – all key Shogun styling cues that underline off-road ability.

Conclusion:

In 1982 Mitsubishi Motors Corporation launched a brand new breed of vehicle: a 4x4 which was tough enough to go where others feared to tread yet enjoyed the sort of sophisticated specification more normally associated with top end saloons. More than thirty years later the Shogun is an icon.

Away from the much commented luxury soft-roaders, heavy-duty workhorses such as the Shogun have carved out a very unique niche in the market where ability and dependability matter first and foremost.

Since the price decrease in July 2013 Shogun sales have gone from strength to strength. With a new vehicle design and improved specification across the range, Shogun now offers customer’s even better value for money verses its key competitors.
