Mitsubishi is giving their evergreen Triton the Shogun treatment, which encompasses a variety of unique touches and additional functional equipment.

“The Triton remains a top seller for Mitsubishi in South Africa with buyers continually attracted to its unique styling, excellent performance and pedigree that has been honed in the world of motorsport along with legendary off-road capability, all characteristics that are now highlighted by the unique Shogun touches,” says Jeffrey Allison, General Manager: Marketing at Mitsubishi Motors South Africa.

Based on the Triton 4×4 Automatic the Shogun is distinguished by a black front bumper garnish, headlight covers as well as matt black front fog light covers. Up top the roof rails are finished in a matching dark hue while a bespoke Shogun sports bar presides 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.

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

The Triton’s off-road capability is underpinned by Mitsubishi’s legendary Super Select II 4WD system that ensures surefooted driving across any surface. When traversing slippery terrain, the system transfers power to the wheels with grip instantaneously. A variety of modes including Gravel, Mud/Snow or Sand when in 4hLc to suit surface conditions and optimise engine output, transmission settings and braking for superior traction.

Rock mode can be engaged in 4LLc. Boasting 220mm of ground clearance, approach and departure angles of 31 and 29 degrees respectively and a 25-degree ramp break-over angle, the Triton has the ability to tackle any obstacle.

Under the bonnet is Mitsubishi’s 2.4L DOHC MIVEC diesel engine. Offering 133kW at 3 500rpm and 430Nm at 2 500rpm, it is mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission featuring Intelligent Shift Control.

“This combination ensures a driving experience and power delivery that it is just right and always in the sweet spot, ensuring effortless performance as a daily driver, workhorse or Overlanding companion, along with frugal fuel consumption,” adds Allison.

As with the entire Triton range, the Triton Shogun is covered by Mitsubishi’s manufacturer’s warranty of three years or 100 000km, a five-year/90 000km service plan and five-year/unlimited mileage roadside assistance. Service intervals are every 10,000 km.

From an early age, Harry was obsessed with anything that moved under its own steam, particularly cars and motorcycles. For reasons of a financial nature, his stable of fine automobiles failed to materialise, at which point he realised that motorcycles were far more affordable and so he started his two wheel career, owning, riding, building and fixing many classic bikes. Then came the day when he converted his love of bikes into a living, writing, filming and talking about them endlessly. The passion for four wheels never left him, however, and he has now converted his writing skills into singing the praises of cars in all their infinite variety. Bikes are still his favourite means of getting around but the car in its modern form is reaching a level of perfection that is hard to resist. And they're warmer in winter....
