MY14 Pajero range features top safety rating but no V6 engine.
Mitsubishi has dropped the V6 petrol engine from the Pajero line-up as part of a refresh of the long standing model that also delivers a five-star ANCAP safety rating.
The 2014 Pajero is now available in Mitsubishi dealerships across Australia, all will feature Mitsubishi’s 3.2-litre Common Rail turbo diesel engine, which delivers 147kW and 441Nm and uses 9.0L/100kms combined.
Buyers will have the choice of either a five speed manual, or five speed automatic transmission.
A V6 petrol engine has been a constant in the Pajero line-up since 1988, but was more recently only available in the top of the range Exceed and with fuel use as high as 17.7L/100km it’s no surprise it’s been dumped from the line-up.
To jump from four to five-star safety Mitsubishi has upped the safety features in the Pajero including ISOFIX child restraints and a reversing camera.
The new Pajero also boasts other standard features including;
- Keyless entry
- MATT (Mitsubishi All Terrain Technology) with Active Stability and Traction Control, ABS and EBD
- Alloy wheels
- Automatic climate control
- Power windows
- Multi-function trip computer
And while the model is starting to look a little dated, Mitsubishi Motors Australia CEO Mutsuhiro Oshikiri, said the Pajero still offers great safety features, on and off-road capabilities, luxurious specifications and value for money.
“Now with peace of mind five-star ANCAP rating, Pajero provides a tough yet luxurious four-wheel drive that suits the family’s day to day needs as well as being completely equipped for the next adventure.”
“There’s a Pajero model to suit every lifestyle, with functionality, safety and power all wrapped up in an attractive package,” Oshikiri said.
Pricing for the new Pajero starts at $50,990.
