The latest Mitsubishi Shogun comes in two sizes: short- and long-wheelbase. The long-wheelbase version has bags of space, and with the third row of seats folded away, there’s enough boot space to take all but one item of our test luggage.
The 3.2-litre engine puts out 275lb/ft of torque, enough to pull the outfit up the 1-in-6 test hill, albeit in a leisurely fashion.
Refinement is the biggest issue. While most rivals have six-cylinder engines, the Shogun makes do with a noisy four-cylinder diesel. At least Warrior trim comes with heaps of standard equipment, including a rear-view camera to help with parking and hitching up.
