After all spy shots, announcements and confirmations, the 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero will finally hit the roads by the end of the year. This SUV is providing elegance from the inside and from the outside. Pajero is a really luxurious model and it comes in two body configurations. The customers can choose between the three and the five-door models. This model is extremely popular, especially in Asia, but other markets around the world will get its Pajero under the name “Montero” or “Shogun”. Acting perfect both on and off the road, Pajero offers an all-wheel-drive setup and a hybrid variant is a possibility.
The 2019 Pajero will suffer upgrades, mostly up front. The interior will keep its layout, but some amenities will get an upgrade as well. The performance will remain, as the same two engines will power this SUV. One of the most famous off-roaders in the SUV market for sure, Pajero delivers aggressive exterior design and upscale interior. Wait for the hybrid variant and you’ve got a complete package with this model.
2019 Mitsubishi Pajero exterior changes
The 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero rides on its fourth generation, and the similarities between the current and previous generation are barely visible. The exterior of this SUV looks aggressive and elegant at the same time and new changes are very likely.
The most visible upgrades will happen up front. The front part now sports a new grille that adds more chrome materials. The LED headlights are redesigned and are very attractive. Even the daytime running lights will get LED units.
Chevrolet’s sign on the hood is larger and the gold “Pajero” lettering are highlighting the hood. Front and rear bumpers are revised and speaking of the rear part, the vertical stop lights are now available in an unusual shape. Pajero is easy recognizable SUV, and whether you like its design or not, you must admit the styling is quite impressive. New character lines are providing more aggressiveness and sportiness and some of the lines are sharper than ever before. The overall vehicle’s dimensions remain, however, the weight is slightly reduced.
2019 Mitsubishi Pajero cabin is luxurious
The interior of the all-new 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero is looking premium and the feel inside the cabin is magnificent. There will be room for seven passengers and you can choose between the three or five-door model. We must admit the interior design is now more conventional than before as Mitsu tries to replicate the interior of its sedans and hatchbacks. Whether if it’s a good or bad thing to do, the cabin is luxurious.
Leather upholstery, latest technology features, and ample interior room are all in the offer. The cabin is tech-rich and Pajero got a fresh multimedia display that is touch-sensitive. The interior is generally the same, besides the new display. The layout of the controls is perfect, the legroom is ample in the first two rows and the cargo area is generous as well. The infotainment system is up to date, and Mitsubishi now delivers more wood and chrome materials.
2019 Mitsubishi Pajero powertrain
The arriving model will offer two drivetrains, along with the hybrid variant, which is a possibility. The standard engine is still a 3.0-liter V6 that generates up to 245 horsepower. The optional 3.8-liter V6 will offer slightly more horses, 250 HP to be precise. The all-wheel-drive configuration will remain optional and both drivetrains will use an 8-speed automatic transmission. The rear-wheel-drive is standard. We expect from Mitsubishi to offer numerous driving modes which will include the off-roading terrains such as mud and sand.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero could arrive with the hybrid drivetrain. This is still a speculation, as the Mitsu is refusing to provide any details. For sure, the hybrid variant will happen sooner or later and it will deliver astonishing mileage. The plan is to pair one of the two engines with an electric motor and battery pack. This combination should be capable of generating 320 HP and 300 lb-ft of torque.
2019 Mitsubishi Pajero sport trim
A range-topping sport trim brings all the premium amenities and systems. More importantly, all of the features are in the offer as standard. Of course, the price is significantly higher than the base model, but if you want real luxury, you’ll have to pay. The 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero sport comes with the more upscale exterior. More chrome details are visible, especially on the door handles, mirrors, lamps, bumpers, and the front grille.
From the inside, everything is covered in leather, and the interior will sport more real wood trims. Additionally, all of the features will be power-operated, which includes side mirrors and the seats. The performance will remain the same.
2019 Mitsubishi Pajero price and release date
The price of the approaching 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero will stay intact. That means the price for the base model starts at $32,000. The probable hybrid model could cost $40,000 and Sport or GLS trims will be over $40,000 for sure. This SUV will go on sale in the coming months, probably by the end of 2018.
