Mitsubishi Shogun Commercial (2007 – 2018) Review

Mitsubishi Shogun Commercial (2007 – 2018) At A Glance


+Rugged build means impressive off road performance to match the likes of the Land Rover Defender, 3.2 DI-D engine has plenty of torque.

-Lacks refinement and finesse, poor on road with sluggish handling and slow performance, no proper bulkhead.

If you want the advantages of all-wheel drive and more car-like road manners, Mitsubishi has proved a popular choice with its L200 pick-up. However, there is another choice from the Japanese manufacturer in the shape of its Shogun Commercial.

The Shogun Commercial is, in essence, a stripped out version of the passenger car, which means ride and handling much the same for the commercial model. It also means the driver enjoys the same high-riding seating position and commanding view of the road ahead.

Again like the passenger model, the Shogun Commercial has near unstoppable off-road ability and is one of the few vehicles that rival a Land Rover Defender for muddy forays. With selectable low-ratio four-wheel drive, the Shogun is a serious option for those whose work takes them further than a muddy puddle.

There are short and long-wheelbase iterations of the Shogun Commercial, offering anything up 765kg carrying capacity. This is allied to maximum braked towing capacities of 3000kg and 3500kg for the short and long-wheelbase models respectively.
