Mitsubishi Shogun, which is what the Pajero is called in the good old Blighty, is really on its last legs. The car looks and feels dated, and even though it offers a great variety of models, it just cannot cut it anymore. All that justifies the decision made by Mitsubishi Motors UK to reduce the Shogun prices by up to £5,000.
Of course Mitsubishi says the price reduction is attributed to MMUK’s determination to further increase sales volume during 2013 and beyond, indicating the Shogun is going to be around for a few more years.
In the UK, Shogun is offered in either three-door five-seat or five-door seven seat guises. Price reductions vary between £3,900 to £5,000 depending on the model, but the ones getting the 5 grand discount are the popular 7-Seat LWB Auto version. The commercial vehicle versions of Shogun, being more popular in the off-road CV segment, are less affected by the price drop, with most versions getting their price tags slashed by 3,900 quid.
Pricing now starts at just £26,199 for the short-wheelbase 3.2 DI-DC SG2 variant, with the top of the range long-wheelbase 3.2 DI-DC SG4 auto available at just £36,799.
