2007 Mitsubishi Pajero | new car review

Posted on Jun 19, 2009 by

Since its introduction 22 years ago, the has become a benchmark for the 4×4 sector, the latest models continuing to set the standard to which others aspire. For , Mitsubishi has released their all-new fourth generation Pajero off-roader. The new Pajero is a progressive evolution that combines authentic 4WD go-anywhere ability with bold and muscular new styling and the choice of either a three-door short or five-door long-wheelbase chassis.

Despite minimal carry over of parts – a mere 26% – the new Pajero is immediately distinguished by its bold  new grille, short front overhang, upright windscreen, strong high flanks, flared wheelarches and rear-mounted spare wheel – all key Pajero style cues that underline its tough, authentic, ability.

Key to the Pajero’s off-road ability is its AWC all-wheel control system, complemented by Mitsubishi’s Super Select 4 II transfer case. Using a centre differential lock, that splits torque 33:67 front to rear, Super Select 4 II offers four driving modes – 2H rear-wheel drive, 4H full time four-wheel drive, 4HLC which locks up the centre differential, and 4LLC for extreme low ratio off-road work.

The Pajero’s interior – from its A-pillar grab-handles to its lofty driving position – reflects its rugged authentic all-season ability. The all-new cabin architecture features a contemporary integrated centre console that houses a Multi-Information Centre Display for the climate and audio controls. Particular attention has been paid to creating a robust feeling within the cabin, with an intuitive layout and easily understood graphics and instruments.

The Pajero tames the most rugged terrain with a powerful 3.8-litre SOHC 24-valve V6 engine, although there is a 3.0-litre unit also available. The majority of the engine’s torque is available early in the power band and peaks early to produce a responsive off the line feel with strong pulling power. Both the powerplants can be had with Mitsubishi’s innovative INVECS-II 5-speed automatic transmission, with its ‘sports mode’ clutchless manual shift facility or the standard 5-speed manual transmission.
