What’s new?

The Triton Shogun has some unique touches and additional functional equipment. This limited-edition model is sure to appeal to enthusiasts while continuing to offer excellent value, according to Mitsubishi.

Exterior:

Based on the Triton 4x4 Automatic, the Shogun is distinguished by a black front bumper garnish, head light covers as well as matt black front fog light covers. Up on top, the roof rails are finished in a matching dark hue while a bespoke Shogun sports bar holds sway over the load bin, which is finished with a tonneau cover and tailgate lock.

The rear lights feature similar matt black covers, and a tow bar is fitted as standard. A matching nudge bar is available as an optional extra.

Interior:

The bespoke treatment continues to the interior where the Triton Shogun features a leather steering wheel, parking brake and floor console finished with black and red stitching. The leather seats and door trim have also been treated to red leather stitching.

The interior of the Triton offers a combination of a robust design finished with high-quality materials across all touch points. In the Shogun, a comprehensive interior specification is bolstered by the fitment of a Sony car audio system complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functionality.

Drivetrain:

Doing duty under the bonnet is Mitsubishi’s tried and tested 2.4L DOHC MIVEC turbo-diesel engine. Offering 133 kW and 430 Nm, it is mated to a smooth shifting six-speed automatic transmission that features Intelligent Shift Control.

The Mitsubishi Triton is well known for its off-road capability, a factor that is further amplified by the fitment of Dunlop A/T 265/60R18 all-terrain tyres to the black alloy wheels.
