Mitsubishi's new Shogun Sport (pictured) with a new uprated 2.5 diesel and modified 3.0-litre V6 petrol engines is to be priced the same as the current model when it goes on sale later this month.
It is available in three trim levels, Classic, Equippe or Elegance, with prices starting at £19,000 for the 2.5TD Classic, up to £24,495 for the 3.0-litre V6 Elegance petrol with auto transmission.
The revised four-cylinder 2.5-litre turbo diesel produces 177lb-ft torque at 2,000rpm. A variable nozzle turbocharger boosts top-end power by 16% resulting in power output reaching 114bhp at 4,000rpm, previously 98bhp at 4,000rpm). The 2.5 gives an extra urban fuel consumption figure of 31.4mpg (Equippe model).
The 3.0-litre V6 ECI-MULTI Step III engine delivers 168bhp at 5,000rpm and 188lb-ft torque at 4,500rpm and gives an extra urban fuel consumption of 28.5mpg (Equippe manual). Mitsubishi says that while power output has been reduced – from 174bhp to 168bhp – in order to meet Euro III regulations, there is no noticeable reduction in performance.
Other specification changes include electrically folding door mirrors, improved security from additional door lock shielding, 'soft-feel' seat trim and the addition of electronic brakeforce distribution to the ABS on Equippe and Elegance models.
