Mitsubishi Shogun (1991 - 1999)

Last updated 26 March 2015

Long-wheelbase version seats seven. Drives better on the road than a contemporary Discovery. Excellent off-road ability.
The diesels are slow and all engines are thirsty. Gearboxes can fail. Rust on older models.
Updated 1 September 1997
Shogun facelifted

Curious 'bitty' facelift as from autumn 1997 Motor Show.

Good looking, very popular and in extremely strong demand in the early 1990s as a more reliable alternative to a Discovery. Made fortunes for the Colt Car Company in the UK.

SWB 3 door, LWB 5 door. Called 'Pajero' in Japan and 'Montero' in other markets.
