The Montero was always a quietly handsome and off-road-ready SUV, but was caught out by the global financial crisis combined with shifting buyer priorities.

Its final flared-fender style was a big leap above the too-narrow look of the first few generations, but the Montero always seemed in the Toyota Land Cruiser's shadow as far as consumer awareness. A steep price meant it was Mitsubishi Motors' flagship model in the US - and the trucks tended to hand around showrooms for a bit too long. This clogged balance sheets to the point where investment in a follow-up model with 2012-introduced safety and emission rules became unfeasible.

Our loss is the global market's gain, however: the Mitsubishi Shogun is going strong in 50-plus markets, including the United Kingdom, where it is popular with a torque-y turbodiesel engine.

For this year, a new SWB Barbarian trim level joins the range. It looks outstanding!

For your next safari, call it whatever you want: Shogun, Pajaro or Montero -- this Mitsubishi Barbarian will take you to the end of the Earth and back in reliable and stylish fashion.
