More than 2.5 million Pajeros have been produced in the approximately 25
years since the first generation was launched in 1982. Sold in over 170
countries and regions today, Pajero has earned enormous popularity as a sport
utility vehicle boasting outstanding durability and endurance that enable it to
deliver safe, secure and comfortable performance over any and all types of road
Debuting at the Paris Motor Show, this Pajero is the fourth generation Pajero.
The latest Pajero offers reliability forged in the crucible of grueling
competition and use under the harshest conditions to be found on the planet. It
retains the all-round SUV specifications of its predecessor, as seen in its
approach angle, ground clearance and other all-terrain performance parameters.
New features that distinguish the fourth-generation Pajero include:
- A new 3.2-litre 4-cylinder diesel with common rail direct fuel injection or a 3.8-litre V6
MIVEC*1 petrol unit.
- A 4WD system comprised of the sophisticated Super
Select 4WD-II transfer case while both ASTC*2 and the rear
differential lock available — developed on the bedrock of MMC's
All-Wheel-Control (AWC) concept and delivering significant improvements in both
off-road and tarmac performance.
- Tastefully designed dashboard and interior
complemented by high-end equipment such as Rockford Acoustic Design Premium
Sound System™ with a new 860W 12-speaker.
This latest Pajero is to be produced at Pajero Manufacturing Co., Ltd. in
Gifu Prefecture, Japan. MMC plans to start shipments to Europe in September,
followed by shipments in Japan and to Australia in October. Eventually the
company plans to export the car to some 170 countries and regions in the Near
& Middle East, Central and South America, and Asia and ASEAN regions.
Debuting alongside at the Paris Motor Show will be the similarly-styled next
generation of Pajero Evolution which will be entered at the 2007 Dakar Rally.
