We’ve got good news – the next-generation Mitsubishi Pajero is headed our way. We expect an all-new, next-generation Pajero that will be entirely different from the current Pajero. Hindustan Motors is expected to launch this new SUV in the first quarter of 2012 and they might also display it at the Delhi Auto Expo 2012.
On the models offered in similar markets to India, there’s plenty of kit that comes with the car – Dual SRS airbags, ABS, EBD, HID headlamps, headlamp washers, automatic wipers and parking sensors. Power comes courtesy a 2.5-litre common rail turbocharged diesel motor coupled to a five-speed automatic transmission equipped with paddle shifters and Sportronic. It’s rated at 176 hp @ 4000 RPM along with a torque rating of 35.7 kgm. Of course, an intelligent four-wheel drive system will be part of the package, given the Pajero’s off-road heritage.
The seating configuration will accommodate 7 people and will offer flexible configurations that will allow convenient loading of luggage as & when required. The interiors too have been significantly revamped and they do look good.
Look forward to more updates on BSM.
