Mitsubishi Pajero for 2007



1st October, 2006

 

2007 Mitsubishi Pajero - NS series

Popular 4WDs have been in Australia for over 20 years. And that is largely due to Mitsubishi's Pajero. It was this vehicle that popularised four-wheel driving in Australia when the first generation was launched in the early 1980s.

Pajero is the embodiment of the Mitsubishi brand being a truly tough, reliable, durable and technologically advanced four-wheel drive. Buyers perceive this spirit through its use of innovative 4WD technology, bold attractive styling and a proud rally success-filled history that includes eleven outright victories in the gruelling Dakar rally, the last six in succession. It has also achieved significant success in the Australian Off Road rally championship in the hands of Townsville's Geoff Pickering - winning its class for the last five years in succession.

No other similar vehicle has had this success; in fact many of the so-called more fancy 4WDs have not undertaken these torturous events.

Pajero is the pinnacle of the Mitsubishi brand and drives significant aspirational appeal to the marque. In essence, every drive in a Pajero is an adventure.

The 3rd generation NM Pajero was launched in June 2000 and has received both critical acclaim and widespread marketplace success. NM Pajero saw the introduction of a raft of 4WD technology and its bold exterior styling ensured that Pajero continued to redefine what is expected of a medium SUV in the marketplace.

In May 2002 the Direct injection Diesel (Di-D) engine was released with class leading power and torque, reinforcing Pajero's leadership qualities. This was followed in December 2002 with the release of a minor facelift (NP series) and the inclusion of another first for the class - Active Traction Control (ATC) and Active Stability Control (ASC) was available across the range (and has subsequently become standard across all models). Another first for Pajero that was introduced with NP series was the release of Engine Brake Assist Control (EBAC).

Although many other new competitors have tried to emulate it, it should be remembered that Pajero is still one of the best available package in the medium SUV segment today through its innovative design and superior on and off-road ability.

The introduction of the new NS series Pajero in Australia, this month, sees the vehicle re-establish itself as a style leader, while all the while retaining the superb "Super Select" 4WD system and its reputation for toughness, durability, reliability and technology.
