Mitsubishi Shogun Barbarian

In 1982 Mitsubishi launched a new breed of car: a 4x4 combining the power and versatility to go where other cars could not and enjoying the kind of specification normally only available in more expensive models. The modern Shogun is practical, superb value for money, unbeatable for loading, lugging and pulling heavy objects, and absolutely unstoppable in the wild. The Mitsubishi Shogun has just received a Barbarian edition available for the UK.

The Mitsubishi Shogun Barbarian is designed to enter the lineup above the Shogun Warrior and it is distinguished by chrome mirrors, a color matching spare tire cover and two-tone 20-inch alloy wheels. The model will be available in four colors including Black Pearl, Frost White, Eiger Grey and Cool Silver. There are not too many changes occurring on the inside, but we can notice the leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and alloy pedals, as well as air conditioning and a GPS navigation system.

The Mitsubishi Shogun Barbarian is powered by a 3.2-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine that outputs 197 bhp (147 kW) and 441 Nm (325 lb-ft) of torque. It can work linked to a five-speed automatic or manual transmission and the latter gearbox allows the model to sprint from 0-62 mph in 9.7 seconds before reaching a maximum speed of 111 mph (180 km/h). The price set for the SUV is 31,999 GBP.
