Parkers Van Deal of the Week 12/06/15

  • 3 tonne towing capacity
  • Generously specced including heated seats
  • All for just £19,794 plus VAT

We’re thinking out of the box for this week’s Parkers Van Deal of the Week, with this special offer on the Mitsubishi Shogun commercial. The Mitsubishi Shogun is a less well known 4x4 Commercial, but it boasts a 3 tonne towing capacity and 440Nm of torque. For those looking for greater tow capacity the five-door Shogun can pull up to 3.5 tonnes.

The 4x4 Commercial market is a small sector (8,763 units in 2014) with a lot of competition, due to the ease of converting regular 4x4s in commercial variants. One of sector’s biggest sellers, the Land Rover Defender, will be taken off sale this year which means there may be an uptake in the Mitsubishi Shogun 4Work.

In the cab

Being derived from a passenger SUV, the cab benefits from a high level of spec and safety features. Front and side SRS airbags, for example, are standard, as is the multi-info display, cruise control, climate control, electric windows, electrically folding and heated mirrors, heated seats and keyless entry.

Practical Workhorse

The Mitsubishi Shogun has a load area of just over a cubic metre, and has a payload of 580kg. Mitsubishi’s are reputable towers too, and the short wheelbase can pull up to 3 tonnes. For the more extreme operations, the Mitsubishi Shogun has a wading depth of 700mm, with a maximum approach and departure angle of 34.6 and 34.3 degrees respectively.

Powerful engine

Under the bonnet is Mitsubishi’s renowned 3.2-litre turbodiesel engine, which produces 197bhp and 440Nm of torque.  It’s mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and achieves a combined fuel economy of 362.mpg.


This £19,794 plus VAT deal for a Mitshubishi Shogun 4Work from is exemtreley attractive for those operating in such industries and farming and agriculture, for rural local authorities or utility companies specialising in remote areas.

It’s generously specced, with heated seats and keyless entry, and remarkably productive with a 3 tonne payload, which makes this deal hard to criticise. See Parkers Vans For Sale for all the latest deals.
