Future Mitsubishi Pajero generation coming in three years image

The Japanese based automaker Mitsubishi is planning to launch the future generation of the Pajero in two or three years.

The announcement has been made by the company’s head of product and strategy development, Ryugo Nakao, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. According to the Mitsubishi official, the new generation of the Pajero is still at least two or three years away. The upcoming Pajero will still be able to handle itself off-road and it will be as capable as the outgoing version. The new generation of the popular terrain vehicle will be made on a new platform which is compatible to the P-HEV hybrid system. This means that the new Pajero will probably receive a hybrid version.

Unfortunately we don’t have any more details for the moment on the future generation of the Mitsubishi Pajero, but as a quick reminder, the outgoing generation has been around ever since 1999 and it received a facelift in 2006. The current Pajero is available in two body styles and with a choice of 5 engines and three transmissions, and it’s being known as the Montero in North America. Production of the model takes place in Japan and Philippines.

    Too little too late Mitsubishi. You didn’t fix what was needed when you should have and you let the competion catch up with what was once a brilliant SUV. After letting everyone believe that the next new Pajero (aka Montero and Shogun) would finally be released as late as 2014/2015 you now turn around and admit you have been sleeping on the Job. The current generation has the underpinnings of the 1999 model. The 2006 model should have been so much more and now say “ you are considering how to evolve it”. How many years do you need to consider? There’s parallels with Blackberry, SAAB, Nokia, Nakamichi in this unfortunate story.
