Driving the Shogun Sport

We’ve added lots of features to make driving easier, including automatic headlights, rain sensors, and cruise control. Off road, the Shogun Sport really comes into its own thanks to an advanced 4WD system, a powerful 2.4L engine and versatile off road settings for all types of terrain.

Super Select 4WD-II

Go where other vehicles fear to tread

The Shogun Sport is built for maximum stability and traction thanks to our Super Select 4WD-II system. Use the drive mode selector dial to change easily between the 2WD setting and 4WD settings whilst on the move. When the going gets particularly rough, lock the centre differential using the 4HLc and 4LLc settings for mud sand and snow.*

Shogun Sport Off Road Mode

The 4x4 that adjusts itself

Improve traction when driving off road by choosing the GRAVEL, MUD/SNOW, SAND or ROCK* setting. Just press the OFF ROAD MODE selector until the appropriate mode appears in the multi-information display. The Shogun Sport’s engine output, transmission settings and braking adjust accordingly to optimise performance.


* The ROCK setting is only available in the 4LLc setting.

**OFF ROAD MODE is only available in the 4HLc and 4LLc setting.

2.4 Litre All-alloy Diesel Engine

Powerful efficiency

Nature is unforgiving for those who arrive unprepared. Which is why the Shogun Sport has a lightweight all-alloy engine with 8-speed automatic transmission. It delivers competitive fuel economy and CO2 emissions. And the punchy output you need for the toughest of conditions.


All Terrain Confidence

Travel over, around or through

Because challenges come in all shapes and sizes, the Shogun Sport is designed to climb up, over, around and through the toughest terrain. The approach angle, ramp breakover angle and departure angle in the Shogun Sport is second to none. If you’re planning on taking your Shogun off-road regularly our underride protection gives increased protection to the underside of your vehicle.

Turning Radius

A surprisingly small turning radius

For a vehicle this size, the turning radius is unexpectedly small. At 5.6 metres, you can easily manoeuvre and park this vehicle without getting your arms in a knot.

Paddle Shifters

A different way to change gears

Sporty paddle shifters let you change without taking your hands off the wheel. All you have to do is pull the paddle towards you.

A smoother, more luxurious ride

8-speed Automatic Transmission

To enjoy a smoother, more luxurious ride and improved fuel efficiency, choose the 8-speed automatic transmission — the first from Mitsubishi Motors.

Improved braking efficiency

Front Ventilated Disc Brakes

The Shogun Sport is equipped with enlarged front ventilated disc brakes. These provide greater braking efficiency. It's just one more way the Shogun Sport is ready for whatever life throws at it.
