The Shogun is almost recognised as a brand in its own right and has been one of the stalwarts of the large 4x4 sector. For 2007 there was a (mostly) new model, bringing with it the most significant changes to the car since 2000.

Mitsubishi claims the Shogun is good enough to gain a four-star rating out of five in official European crash tests, indicating a potentially high standard of Mitsubishi Shogun safety, although it hasn't been tested by Euro NCAP. Electronic stability control, which can help correct a vehicle's line during a skid, is fitted as standard as well as twin front, side and curtain airbags.

Plenty of the original 1983 vintage Shoguns are still running and Mitsubishi Shogun reliability should be excellent as a result. Large 4x4s are expected to be reliable because they may well be used in remote areas where a breakdown or fault is more than a mere inconvenience. The new model, retaining most of the mechanical parts of the previous model, should be well proven and dependable.
