Mitsubishi Pajero has come a long way since its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1981. Success was not one of the first things that greeted Mitsubishi Pajero after its launch, for its initial years were marked by a lukewarm market response. Mitsubishi seemed to be straddling the unsure ground between a family car and a commercial car. Few adjustments like five doors (it was a three door initially), longer wheel base etc, which followed in subsequent years injected some life to the sales. Mitsubishi Pajero has now entered its Fourth Generation phase following its unveiling at the Paris Motor Show on 30th September 2006.
Features of Mitsubishi Pajero
Mitsubishi Pajero is built for rough times and the strongest affirmation of this comes each time the road opens up with promises of a difficult ride ahead. Light weight high-tensile steel, known for immense strength, is a chief constituent in Mitsubishi Pajero's body. The secret behind Mitsubishi Pajero's coolness in the harshest of conditions lies in its 2.8 litre Turbocharged Intercooler engine.Mitsubishi Pajero, equipped as it is with 5-speed gearbox with Super Select 4WD, provides the greatest thrills of rough riding.
Mitsubishi Pajero has crumble zones to protect the passengers from receiving any injuries in the event of any accident. The windows have anti-trapping power windows which provide safety during adverse situations. Also the fuel tank is located higher than in most other cars, this minimizes major accidents.
