Pajero

At the very top

Some 4-wheel drives look the part, but then fall apart when things get tough. Not Pajero. It was forged in the heat of the Sahara desert, in over 10 years of the punishing Paris–Dakar rally.

It wasn’t easy. But it was worth it; no other competitor has ever matched our record of wins. And what we learnt here goes into the Pajero you drive today. For sporting and technical achievement, it’s miles ahead.

While it’s built for a whole lot of living, it’s also very easy to live with, thanks to uncommon levels of luxury, inside and out. There’s an advanced, integrated system of safety features. The on-road feeling is refined and firm.

As comfortable as it is capable, Pajero has it all.

You might not want to go charging through the Sahara. But you could.

Mitsubishi Pajero

Mitsubishi Pajero dashboard

Everything’s on board

Pajero is a vehicle of contrasts. While it’s as rugged as it gets, the interior delivers state-of-the-art features and the highest level of comfort. There’s cruise control, climate control, parking sensor, a multi-mode dashboard display and seven seats with elegant leather.

Mitsubishi Pajero Safety

Absolute safety

The advantage of a body design that can tackle unthinkable terrain is that it’s exceptionally safe. To complete the safety package, we’ve added seven airbags as standard throughout. There’s also a long list of adaptive handling features that keep you on track and out of harm’s way.

Direct Injection Common Rail system

Diesel power

This engine harnesses the leading edge of diesel technology. Fuel is delivered through a Direct Injection Common Rail system. The Intercooled Turbo boosts the already large low-end torque and adds smoothness and power throughout the rev range. It makes light work of hauling a boat up a slippery ramp or launching you up to motorway speeds.

The figures sum it up: 150kW of power and a hefty 448Nm of torque. What’s surprising is that all this power comes from 3.2 litres – a higher output than many engines of much greater size.

The final word is the economy: just 9.0 litres per 100km.

Pajero Gear shifter

Making the most of the power

The perfect gear box for this powerhouse engine is the INVECS II 5-speed automatic transmission. Not only does it let the engine work most effectively at any rev speed, it adapts your driving style. The Smart Logic system measures your use of the pedals and adapts its changes to suit how you drive. The result is smooth acceleration and a more predictable ride, which is very reassuring on uncertain surfaces.

Mitsubishi Pajero Safety

A very safe place to be

All models of Pajero feature a raft of air bags as standard. There are front airbags for driver and passenger, as well as side and curtain airbag. With Pajero’s ride height and stiff body construction, the feeling of protection is very reassuring.

Pajero rise body construction

RISE monocoque body design

Mitsubishi’s Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution body design, or RISE, is what gives Pajero its remarkable strength. This means the occupant area keeps its shape in a collision and energy is transferred away. A stiffer body also means better handling.

The monocoque frame is a system we adapted from aircraft design. It’s a major factor in the vehicle’s integrity and lowers the centre of gravity for better, safer cornering. The bonnet is made of lightweight aluminium for the same reason.

Christchurch Mitsubishi - ANCAP Five Star Safety

5 Star

A combination of active and passive safety systems help Pajero achieve a 5 Star ANCAP safety crash rating so you can be reassured you’ll be just as safe on the road and off the road

Pajero Leather seats

Luxury of leather

On Pajero Exceed, you’re treated to smooth, supremely comfortable leather. The front seats are even heated, making frosty mornings more tolerable.

Rockford Fosgate sound system

Powerful sound system

Pajero offers an exceptional sound system, with in-dash CD player with MP3 compatibility. Exceed takes it up a notch with a 12-speaker 860 Watt Rockford Fosgate sound system. It’s one serious audio package, but when you’re miles from anywhere, who’s going to mind the noise?

 

Super Select 4WD

The hard working Pajero inherits all the 4WD-handling heritage of the long line of Mitsubishi rally champions. Most 4WD systems have either part-time 4WD or constant 4WD, but with Super Select 4WD now available in Pajero, you have the best of both worlds.

Four driving modes give you complete driving freedom: economical 2WD, full-time 4WD allowing you to drive in 4WD on any surface, and traditional 4WD high & low range modes to take on any off-road situation. The Super Select 4WD System also offers the benefit of on-the-fly shifts from 2WD to 4WD high range at speeds of up to 100km/h.

Pajero 4WD Shifter

2H (2WD high range)

2H (2WD high range)

For regular road driving, this setting gives you power, solid handling and the best economy.

4H (full-time 4WD)

4H (full-time 4WD)

If the weather, or the road itself is not too flash, the ability to drive in high range 4WD is a serious safety boost. The new off-road mode gives you added grip and stability in rough conditions.

4HLC (4WD high range)

4HLC (4WD high range)

When you’re off-road, this setting distributes power to all four wheels equally.

4LLC (4WD Low Range with Locked Centre Differential)

4LLC (4WD Low Range with Locked Centre Differential)

When the track runs out, or disappears beneath the mud, this mode will make you glad you’re in a Pajero. It sends all of Pajero’s power and traction to the wheels. If you try this system and still want more climbing ability, might we suggest a helicopter.

Upgrade to the legend for only $59,990 + ORC

Now you can step up into a top-of-the-line 4WD for a price you just can’t go past. With a proven 3.2L Turbo Diesel that generates a big 143kW of power and 448Nm of torque, Pajero Exceed makes towing up to 3 tons effortless. Thanks to Super Select 4WD, you’ll be surefooted on any surface or slope. It’s not only rugged, it’s dependable and covered for up to 10 years with the best warranty in New Zealand.

Take the family with you. Anywhere.

Pajero Exceed now has seven seats, so you can share the adventure with everyone. If it’s luggage or sports gear you need to carry, the third row of seats fold down and can even be removed. The second row folds down in 1/3, 2/3, or all together for a total cargo area of 1758 litres.

Tow 3 tons easily

If you need to tow a boat, horse float, trailer or other heavy object, Pajero is a capable and very safe choice. You’ll have the power you need from the 3.2L Turbo Diesel engine and smoothness from the INVECS II transmission. If the boat ramp is slippery, Super Select 4WD will take care of that.

Luxury in leather

Pajero Exceed is as comfortable and well-appointed as you’d expect a top-of-the-line vehicle to be. There’s a smooth leather interior and the fronts seats are heated, something you’ll no doubt appreciate on early morning runs up to the ski field.

Check out the view

As the trees on a forest track or the peaks of mountains pass overhead, you can take in the view from the electric sunroof. One push of a button and fresh air fills the cabin. *Overseas model shown.
