Mitsubishi has just launched the Shogun Barbarian in United Kingdom where it will be positioned above the Shogun Warrior. It can be visually distinguished by its color matching spare tire, chromed exterior mirrors and 20-inch two-tone alloy wheels. Customers will have the possibility of ordering the model in four body hues like Cool Silver, Black Pearl, Eiger Grey and Frost White. On the inside there’s not a lot going around but you will find alloy pedals, a leather-covered steering wheel and leather seats together with a GPS system and air conditioning.
Motivation of the Mitsubishi Shogun Barbarian (UK-spec) is provided by a 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine rated at 197 bhp (147 kW) and 325 lb-ft (441 Nm). The engine can work with a 5-speed automatic transmission or a manual gearbox. With the latter, the vehicle will sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 9.7 seconds before topping out at 111 mph (180 km/h).
Mitsubishi says sales will commence in a short while and interested customers will have to pay a starting price of 31,999 pounds.
