Adds ZAR 70,000 worth of off-road kit free.
Mitsubishi has unveiled a special edition of the current Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, which is dubbed as the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport “Shogun” edition. It is the last hurrah of the current generation Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, which will make way for the next generation model due for launch in mid-2016.
The Pajero Sport Shogun features a host of off-road centric features that are worth ZAR 70,000, but are offered free. These include an intake snorkel for better water wading, Tough Dog heavy-duty shocks, all-terrain tyres, underbody protection plates, rock-sliders and detachable tow bar.
The only interior upgrade is the integration of a Garmin ‘Nuvicam’ device with pre-loaded African overland routes and maps, which could turn out to be beneficial when traversing unknown off-road trails.
Under the hood is a 2.5 Di-D turbo diesel engine that produces 131 KW (175.6 hp) and 350 Nm of torque. It is paired to a 5-speed automatic gearbox and a Super-Select 4WD system.
