Top industry award for Mitsubishi Shogun 4Work Commercial
THE Mitsubishi Shogun 4Work Commercial has underlined its unrivalled versatility as a working vehicle in all road and weather conditions by winning the ‘Commercial 4×4’ category at the Professional Pickup & 4×4 Awards 2018.
Hosted by Professional Pickup & 4×4 magazine, the new awards highlight the vehicles that are the hardest working 4x4s. Rather than being judged by journalists, the award winners are determined by leading industry professionals who use pickups and commercial 4x4s as part of their working life.
Blending the legendary off-road capability of the Mitsubishi Shogun with a payload of up to 655kg, the Mitsubishi Shogun 4Work Commercial won praise from the ‘real world’ judging panel for its advanced drivetrain, sizeable load area and ability to tow up to 3,500kg.
On the judges’ decision to award the Mitsubishi Shogun 4Work Commercial, Liam Campbell, Editor, Professional Pickup & 4×4, said: “The Shogun is the 4×4 Commercial market leader by some margin, and it’s not hard to see why. The Shogun boasts a spacious load area and a 3.5t towing capacity on the long wheelbase, and Mitsubishi’s Super Select four-wheel drive system is, in our opinion, the best that money can buy and has been for some time.”
Lance Bradley, Managing Director, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: “We are delighted to win this award, especially as the judging panel has years of ‘hands on’ experience of using 4×4 vehicles in the harshest of working environments. The Shogun 4Work Commercial really is the perfect vehicle for business users who have to get the job done, no matter the weather or road conditions, but at the same time as being a tremendous working vehicle it also offers the considerable ride and drive advantages of a normal Shogun.”
