MITSUBISHI MOTORS IN THE UK LAUNCHES A NEW AND EXCITING SPECIAL EDITION – THE SHOGUN BLACK

Jan 3, 2012

CIRENCESTER, UK – Following the success of the latest (12MY) Mitsubishi Shogun, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK are about to extend the Shogun range with the introduction of the Shogun Black, a new special edition model with enhanced exterior styling.

From the outside the new Mitsubishi Shogun Black boasts a dynamic appearance with the introduction of satin black styling kit which includes striking black 20” alloy wheels, roof, spoiler, wing mirrors, grille and headlamp bezels, fog lamp surrounds, door handles and side steps.

Based on the current Mitsubishi 3.2 Di-D LWB Shogun SG4, the newcomer will be available from UK dealerships from 1st January 2012 in the following metallic colours:

  • Frost White (Solid)
  • Cool Silver (Metallic)
  • Diamond Black (Pearlescent)
  • Orient Red (Metallic)
  • Granite Brown (Metallic)

The new Euro V compliant Mitsubishi Shogun is the strongest, quietest, safest and smartest Shogun ever built. Now with 197bhp and a massive 441Nm of torque it has increased towing capacity to 3,500kg, best-in-class CO2 emissions which not only means it is kinder to the environment, it also has lower road tax too. Complete with new satellite navigation and Bluetooth systems to help with any on or off road adventure. As always, the Shogun comes packed with an array of standard safety and luxury equipment:

The Shogun SG4 standard features include:

·          Mitsubishi Motors Communication System (MMCS) with:

  • Satellite navigation
  • Reversing camera
  • iPod connection

The interior boasts items such as:

  • New high-quality material leather upholstery
  • New enhanced illumination for instruments
  • New brushed silver finish for power window control panels

Other features include:

  • Mitsubishi Active Stability and Traction Control (M-ASTC)
  • Auto lights, auto wipers and privacy glass
  • A colour coded spare wheel cover as standard
  • Brake override system – in case the driver accidentally hits the brake and accelerator at the same time (the car automatically opts for the safer braking option)
  • Rear under-cover, thus reducing aerodynamic drag
  • Electric power steering

Servicing and Maintenance

The legendary Mitsubishi Shogun has a 3-year / unlimited mileage warranty together with a pan-European roadside assistance package. Service intervals for all 12MY Shogun variants are 9,000 miles/12 months (whichever comes first) and Mitsubishi’s extremely competitive service plan (MSP), covering the first three scheduled services can be purchased for just £750.

Vehicle Pricing

The Mitsubishi Shogun Black is priced £1,000 above the SG4 model at £41,999. The metallic charge for Shogun is an additional £540.

Summary

Away from the much commented “Chelsea tractor” 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 its debut in 1982, Mitsubishi has produced millions of Shoguns, with a whopping 104,328 units sold in the UK alone. The Mitsubishi Shogun is a vehicle that inspires exceptional brand loyalty, with seven in ten customers retaining a Shogun. The new Shogun Black adds a new dimension to the increasingly exciting Shogun range.
