Next Mitsubishi Pajero to come in 2017 image

The Japanese based automaker Mitsubishi is planning to make a comeback for its Pajero model as a new generation is believed to be introduced in a couple of years.

It may have been around for a lot of years by now but this still remains a popular vehicle with its customers. We’re talking about the Mitsubishi Pajero which will be taking things to a new level with a new generation. According to a recent report, the model in question will be coming, with the next-gen, in 2017. The vehicle is said to remain a true 4×4 utility vehicle and to still be a good off-roader, better than the current variant as this will be aimed towards customers who “tow horse boxes or actually go off-road”, said the Mitsubishi UK boss, Lance Bradley, to Autocar.

As far as its looks go, the upcoming version of the SUV will be taking its styling cues from the GC-PHEV Concept and it will become a more affordable alternative to the Land Rover Defender and, thanks to the adoption of a plug-in hybrid system, it will also become a more economical ride, lowering the running costs. This is a strategy which is based on the current Outlander PHEV which is proving “that if he product is good enough you can change people’s percetions of our brand, and we expect to make ground in the same way with the Shogun”, added the company’s official. More details on the future Pajero will most likely be released close to its official presentation.
