The Shogun was a serious Japanese competitor to the Range Rover, earning respect for its longevity (it was launched back in 1983), off-road ability and reliability. And before the advent of the X5 and its ilk, was one of the best serious off-roaders to drive on normal roads.

Buying used

You might want to consider a cheaper Japanese import (usually badged Pajero). These often aren't to UK spec, and you should always get its history checked out, with a data check. There are plenty of cheap UK cars around, too. Look for full service history and if it looks like its had a hard life then keep on looking. Plenty of these things spent easy lives in the suburbs and will have lots left to give.

Originally introduced to the British market in the mid-’80s, the Shogun was revised in May 91, with new 2.5 Turbo-Diesel and 3.0 V6 petrol 3-door and 5-door models. The 3-door is strong and heavy enough for light towing, but for tougher work the 5-door (LWB) is recommended. The LWB models have a third row of seats, which received head restraints in February 94.

Shoguns sell best with a good clean up and a fully stamped service book but there seems to be plenty of buyers who like the model for its dependability and relatively classless appeal.
