Mitsubishi Shogun Sport SVP Concept Looks Ready To Tackle The Trails

Mitsubishi has unveiled the rugged Shogun Sport SVP concept at the Commercial Vehicle Show in the United Kingdom.

Designed to be even more capable than the standard model, the Shogun Sport SVP has an aggressive exterior with a revised grille, auxiliary lights and 18-inch beadlock-style wheels that are wrapped in BF Goodrich all-terrain tires. The concept also has bodyside graphics, black lighting unit surrounds and extended fender flares which accommodate the 1.6 inch (40 mm) wider tracks.

To further enhance the concept’s performance, Mitsubishi worked with Koni and Walkinshaw Performance to create a uniquely tuned suspension that delivers “additional off-road comfort and improved on-road dynamics.” Other changes include the installation of side steps and a black Shogun Sport badge on the hood.

In the cabin, there’s stylish leather and suede seats with red contrast stitching as well as tread-inspired perforations. Additional changes are limited, but the concept also has red mood lighting.

Power comes from a 2.4-liter turbodiesel that produces 181 hp (135 kW / 184 PS) and 317 lb-ft of torque (430 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a Super Select four-wheel drive system. The Japanese SUV also has center and rear locking differentials as well as hill descent control and an off-road mode.

While most concepts are little more than design exercises, Mitsubishi confirmed this Shogun Sport study previews a new SVP Pack that will be offered later this summer. Little is known about it, but the automaker said the concept is “being used to gauge public opinion on the pack’s features.”
