Mitsubishi Pajero Australia

By: michael

The Mitsubishi Pajero is a SUV manufactured by Mitsubishi Motors, it is known as the Mitsubishi Montero Americas (except Brazil) and Spain, and as Mitsubishi Shogun in the United Kingdom. The name Montero (meaning "mountain warrior") was used because Pajero is slang for wanker in Spanish.

Thanks to its success, the Pajero, Montero and Shogun names were also applied to other, mechanically unrelated models, such as the Pajero Mini kei car, the Pajero Junior and Pajero iO/Pinin classed as a mini SUV, and the Mitsubishi Pajero/Montero/Shogun Sport.

Fourth generation

The fourth generation was introduced at the Paris Motor Show on September 30, 2006. New interior and exterior styling was accompanied by enhanced safety with dual-stage SRS front airbags as well as new side-impact and curtain airbags. The Super-Select 4WD II system was retained but is complemented by an improved Active Stability & Traction Control (ASTC) system and electronic brakeforce distribution. The engines were upgraded with the 3.2 L Diesel now producing 125 kW (167 hp/170 PS) and the 3.8 L V6 gaining MIVEC variable valve timing to boost power to 184 kW (247 hp/250 PS). Both engines meet new Euro IV emissions standards. The 3.0 L V6 is retained for the Japanese market. Additionally, for the first

time since 2000, Mitsubishi has made available both 2-door SWB and 4-door LWB versions of the Pajero. Mechanically, they remain identical with both equipped with new 18-inch alloy wheels.
