It has only been about two months since Mitsubishi launched the Shogun (known as the Pajero and Montero in other markets) in a mildly tweaked form for the 2012 model year in the UK, but the Japanese carmaker has already announced the presentation of a new special edition model called "Black" with enhanced exterior styling.
The name stems from the color of the styling details rather than the body itself which is available in a choice of five metallic hues including Frost White (solid), Cool Silver (metallic), Diamond Black (pearlescent), Orient Red (metallic) and Granite Brown (metallic).
Based on the current Shogun SG4 LWB that is powered by a 3.2-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine that delivers 197bhp and 441Nm (325 lb-ft) of torque, the Black Editions gains a satin black styling kit which includes black 20-inch alloy wheels, roof, spoiler, wing mirrors, grille and headlamp bezels, fog lamp surrounds, door handles and side steps.
Other standard features include a communication system with satellite navigation, parking camera and iPod connectivity, leather interior and auto lights and wipers.
The new 2012 Shogun Black Edition is available for order now with UK pricing set at £41,999, or £1,000 above the SG4 model.
