The Pajero looks radical and there’s a bit of flamboyance similar to how next-gen Endeavour and Fortuner have evolved!
Mitsubishi has released a new video revealing the front and rear end of the next-gen 2016 Pajero Sport. The SUV will make its global debut next month on August 1 at Bangkok International Grand Motor Sale, Thailand.
Looking at the teaser video, the 2016 Pajero has adopted the Mitsubishi’s new ‘Dynamic Shield’ design language - sporting a large ‘X’ shaped grille and swept back sleeker headlamps featuring ‘L’ shaped daytime running LEDs. The rear profile offers large LED taillamps in a vertical appearance.
Mechanically, it is expected that the 2016 Pajero will get a new 2.4-litre MIVEC diesel engine from the 2015 Triton/L200 instead of the current 2.5-liter unit. The new oil burner is powerful and efficient than the existing one. The 4-cylinder unit musters a whisker over 180 hp and 430 Nm of max twist. Moreover, transmission options will also be updated in the new Pajero and automatic will be offered just like the current car.
Globally, it will go on sale later this year, however, the Indian launch is expected by the end of next year or early 2017. And like the current model, it will be imported through Thailand made - CKD kits assembling at Hindustan Motor Finance Corp’s (HMFCL) Tiruvallur plant (in Tamil Nadu).
