The new Mitsubishi Shogun Black is black. It can also be white, silver, red, or brown – but these are the only colours available on this hard-core special edition. Every paint finish is complemented by striking exterior features that distinguish the Black from its less aggressive siblings. These include the black: twenty-inch alloy wheels, roof, spoiler, wing mirrors, grille, headlamp bezels, fog lamp surrounds, door handles and side steps. Does that explain why I cannot find “black” paint at my local DIY store? The result of Mitsubishi's efforts is that this Shogun looks tougher than a bouncer at the world's meanest nightclub.

Fortunately, the Mitsubishi Shogun Black has some muscle to complement its aggressive looks. This comes in the form of its 3.2-litre diesel engine that produces 197bhp, and – more importantly for mud-plungers and trailer towers – a useful 441Nm of torque. This hefty four-wheel-drive also averages around 35mpg. The interior is pleasing too, so motorists benefit from the: leather upholstery, reversing camera, iPod connection, and the satellite navigation system. This rugged workhorse also has a reassuring brake override system. So, if the driver accidentally presses the throttle and brake together, the Shogun Black selects the safer braking option. What we need now is a Shogun “Bright Pink”. Nice!
