Read the Honest John Review

  • Mitsubishi Shogun (2007 - 2019)
    A rugged hard-worker that can tow heavy loads without breaking sweat and conquer terrain that would faze nearly all of its rivals, spacious cabin and seven seats, reasonably affordable and most version well equipped.
  • Mitsubishi Shogun (1999 - 2007)
    Excellent tow car and rugged off-roader. Better ride quality than the previous Shogun.
