Plenty of life left in Pajero says Mitsubishi.

Plenty of life left in Pajero says Mitsubishi.

2014-Mitsubishi-Pajero-front-on-The Mitsubishi Pajero, now in its fourth generation, has been around since the eighties.

Yet this year has brought record interest in the 3-tonne-towing SUV, with sales levels not seen for a decade or more says Mitsubishi Motors New Zealand Limited. It sees the resurgence continuing as the new 2015 Exceed and GLS models enter the market this month.

“The new models add plenty of visual and specification enhancements to Pajero”, says Mitsubishi’s sales and marketing strategy chief Daniel Cook. “These are sure to appeal to buyers and promote the seven-seat turbo diesel SUV higher on their preference list”.

A new bumper and grille design and daytime-safety LEDs tucked beside the fog lights adorn the front of the 2015 Pajero. Inside there is a new audio/GPS unit with a big touch screen and reversing camera.

For the 2015 model year, the GLS shares the Exceed’s 18” alloys, high-intensity headlights, and colour-keyed mirrors that fold, demist, and wear a prominent turn indicator for extra safety.

The leather-upholstered Exceed adds heated front seats, 12-speaker audio and seven inch audio screen: for 2015 it gets a new panoramic electric sunroof and high-beam headlights that dip automatically when driving conditions demand or oncoming vehicles approach. The latest Exceed makes significant further gains in noise suppression.

Some things stay the same, says Cook, because they are the “essence” of Pajero. “Count among these its immense torsional rigidity, its 448 Newton metres of torque, its Super Select ‘shift on the fly’ 4WD and its end-to-end safety systems.

“All have been progressively tuned to achieve a vehicle that goes virtually anywhere with confidence and security, and makes light work of towing huge trailers, horse floats and boats, in fact anything up to 3.0T that needs the power and size only Pajero can offer”.
Recommended retail prices for the 2015 Mitsubishi Pajero remain unchanged despite the additional specification, the GLS retails from $77,090 and the Exceed from $87,590.
