Mitsubishi Pajero Overview
The Mitsubishi Pajero is a SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) produced by the Japanese manufacturing company Mitsubishi. To British drivers, they will know this vehicle more commonly as the Mitsubishi Shogun. It is also marketed under the Montero name in Spain and other countries. The Mitsubishi Pajero is a great off-road vehicle, with its 4x4 drive but doesn’t perform that well on-road. This is a very spacious vehicle inside, with some versions offering 7 seats, but the interior design is not of the highest quality.
Mitsubishi Pajero History
The first generation (1982-91) version was initially only available in short-wheel base with a limited number of engine choices. A long wheel base version was soon introduced with a wider of choice of engines to meet a larger audience. The new version also offered 7 seats which was to prove popular with families.
The second generation (1991-99) made much needed improvements to the aging first version, and brought the Pajero up to speed with its competitors. Both the long and short wheel versions increased in size. In 1998 this version received a bit of a makeover which mainly affected external parts such as: bumpers and lights.
The third generation (1999-2006) had a complete re-design which effectively made it handle better on-road. It was made lower and wider, which greatly improved the on-road performance of the vehicle. This version was to be the most luxurious and they were aiming to compete with rivals such as Landrover Discovery.
The fourth generation (2006 - present) is the current version in production and gave it a new look both inside and out. The safety of the vehicle was greatly increased with many new safety features, such as: airbags and side impact. There were minor changes made in 2012.
