Mitsubishi Shogun Dropped From The UK, Check Out The Last One Here

After 37 years and with 114,164 units registered in the United Kingdom, Mitsubishi has dropped the Shogun from its lineup. The last one imported into the country is a 2019 SWB Barbarian and has been added to the company’s fleet of heritage vehicles.

Arriving in Britain via the Portbury-based import center, the SUV sports a Frost White finish and features a comprehensive equipment list with leather trim, reversing camera, climate control, DAB radio, satellite navigation system and others being part of it. To highlight the evolution of the 4×4, the last Shogun posed next to a first-gen 1987 SWB model.

“The Shogun was an incredibly important vehicle for us, helping us to be one of the leaders in the 4WD and SUV segments from as long ago as the early 1980s and rapidly grow our brand presence in the UK”, commented Managing Director Rob Lindley. “The sheer number of Shoguns sold to such a broad range of customers, spanning private motorists right through to the emergency services, and the length of the production run shows how well loved the Shogun is. We’re delighted to now have the last example registered in the UK on our heritage fleet, its inclusion recognizing its significance in the success that we enjoy today and a permanent reminder of just how good it was.”

The end of the production run was announced earlier this year, with the Pajero Final Edition in Japan. This variant builds on the Pajero Exceed and gets extra gear like roof rails, a sunroof, electrically adjustable front seats wrapped in leather and backlit ‘Final Edition’ sill plates. The model was also available with the Final Edition Accessory Package, adding aspare tire cover and mud flaps with the ‘Pajero’ badging, and a rear spoiler.

Pricing in the Land of the Rising Sun kicked off at 4,530,600 yen ($42,489/€38,249/£34,934), and all examples came with the 190 PS (187 hp / 140 kW) and 441 Nm (325 lb-ft) of torque 3.2-liter, four-cylinder diesel engine, paired to a five-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
