If you are into Pajero so much, you may want to wait in anticipation for the upcoming 2018 Mitsubishi Pajero. But keep in mind that the Pajero has different names in different part of the world so you may want to open up your mind about it. But be prepared for the updates the new Pajero brings in 2018 model. After all, it has been known as a solid and reliable ride so you shouldn’t expect less from the new model.
The new Pajero has gained quite a lot of attention while it was actually an ‘accidental production’ of Mitsubishi. Originally designed as a prototype for Tokyo International Auto Show in 1973, the Pajero was finally released by Mitsubishi in 1983 as one of their line. The name was taken from Leopardus Pajero, the plateau Patagonia in the south Argentina. Since then, the Pajero has been included in the Mitsubishi variant. But there are different names for the vehicle. In UK, it is known as the Shogun. In America, it is known as the Montero.
This full size vehicle will get some updates for the 2018 model. After all, they are making refreshing upgrades across their lines so why not making one for the Pajero as well? With Outlander and Pajero getting the updates, you can expect the company to be a little busy. And what kind of updates can you expect from this new 2018 Mitsubishi Pajero, after all? There will be better fuel economy system, new safety system, improved offroad bility, and improved driving experience.
There are three different models that have been used as the concept platforms, the Concept XR-PHEV, AR, and also GC-PHEV. You can expect the last one to be the most effective and influential from the three. After all, GC is basically the short for Grand Cruise so you can expect the best about the new Pajero.
Based on the concept platform of the GC-PHEV, the 2018 Mitsubishi Pajero is using a plug in hybrid system – which means that this full size vehicle won’t only fuel efficient but also ecofriendly. It is not bad, really, considering that the powertrain is the combination of V6 engine with 3.0 liter capacity that is paired with electric motor and also automatic eight speed transmission.
For the release date, it is expected to arrive somewhere by the end of 2017 with a tag price in between $52,000 and possibly $75,000. We should expect new updates for the upcoming 2018 Mitsubishi Pajero.
