As you can see in the latest pictures, the new 2016 Mitsubishi Pajero comes with some major restyling and cosmetic upgrades. Based on Mitsubishi’s famous pick-up truck fifth-generation Triton, the new Pajero uses the same ladder-frame chassis that underpins the latter. In terms of looks the new Pajero look much more stylsh and sleeker than the current generation Pajero.
The front fascia is styled with a chrome grille and sharper looking headlamp on either side that perfectly sink with the grille design giving the impression of on single element. On the other hand the new wide airdam and sporty front bumpers that house the foglamps adds to the new Pajero’s aggressiveness.
Seeing the side profile you’ll notice some new changes like the muscular bodyline, bumpy wheel arches and new window panes. The wraparound taillight that equally extends towards both the side and the tin of the tailgate looks sporty. There is a chrome treatment above the registration plate that adds to its premium look.
Coming to its powerhouse, the next generation 2016 Mitsubishi Pajero will likely be paired to new 2.4-litre 4N15 turbo-diesel engine that powered the Triton. The engine is expected to delivers 181 PS of power and 430 Nm of torque, while mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox, replacing its existing 4-speed box, alongside a 6-speed manual transmission.
As mentioned earlier the India-bound model is likely to be unveiled next year and upon its entry will go up against the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, Ssangyong Rexton and the upcoming Chevrolet Trailblazer.
