Mitsubishi Triton receives Shogun status

Mitsubishi adds Shogun derivative to Triton range

By on 15 May 2024

While South Africa holds its breathe for the launch of the all-new Mitsubishi Triton, Mitsubishi South Africa has unveiled another special edition derivative of the current model.

Bespoke Shogun touches

Mitsubishi South Africa have given the evergreen Triton the Shogun treatment, which encompasses a variety of unique touches and additional functional treatment. The Triton Shogun is sure to appeal to enthusiasts looking for a unique proposition which also offers excellent value.

Based on the Mitsubishi Triton 4x4 Automatic, the Shogun is differentiated by a black front bumper garnish, head light covers as well as matt black front fog light covers. The roof mounted rails are finished in a matching black hue while a bespoke Shogun sports bar presides over the load bin which is finished with a tonneau cover and tailgate lock. The rear lights are protected by matt black covers and a tow bar is fitted as standard.

The bespoke upgrades continue in the interior where the Triton Shogun is fitted with a leather steering wheel, parking brake and floor console, leather seats and door trim decorated with black and red stitching.
The already comprehensive interior specification is further bolstered by the fitment of a Sony car audio system complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring capability.

Improved off-road ability

While the Mitsubishi Triton is renowned for its off-road ability, this has been further amplified by the fitment of Dunlop A/T 265/60R18 all-terrain tyres to black alloy wheels.
The Mitsubishi Triton’s 4x4 capability is facilitated by the company’s legendary Super Select II 4WD system which ensures surefooted driving across any terrain. Selectable off-road mode maximises traction by offering a variety of modes including Gravel, Mud/Snow or Sand when in 4hLc to suit surface conditions and optimise engine output, transmission settings and braking. Rock mode can be engaged when in 4LLc. Boasting 220mm of ground clearance, approach and departure angles of 31 and 29 degrees respectively and a 25-degree ramp breakover angle means that the Triton has the credentials to tackle any obstacle.

Tried and tested powertrain

Doing duty under the bonnet is Mitsubishi’s tried and tested 2.4L DOHC MIVEC diesel engine that boasts 133kW and 430Nm and which is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission that features Intelligent Shift Control.


The entire Triton range, including the Shogun is covered by Mitsubishi’s three-year/100 000km warranty and a five-year/90 000km service plan.
