KUALA LUMPUR: The Mitsubishi Pajero has been upgraded.
The latest Pajero comes with re-designed front grille and bumper, a new skid plate, re-styled roof rail and a new 18”alloy wheel design.
The dashboard is decked in Red illumination colour for a sportier look while maintaining an upmarket feel from plush leather trim to expansive seats.
To aid parking and reversing, the Pajero now comes with a rear view camera system which has a monitor incorporated into the auto dimming mirror.
As a safety function, the Pajero introduces the Brake Overide System. This system cuts engine power in case of simultaneous application of both accelerator and brake pedal.
Once this function is activated, the system reduces power on the engine without stalling or turning the engine off.
To regain acceleration, the driver will have to release the brake pedal and press on the accelerator pedal instead.
Powered by a 3.8-litre V6 engine with 250hp of power and 329Nm of torque from 6,000rpm and 2,750 rpm respectively, the 24-valve engine is equipped with Mitsubishi Motors’ MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control) technology for optimum performance and efficiency.
The V6 engine is paired to an INVECS-II 5-speed automatic transmission with Sport Mode.
The All Wheel Control (AWC) system promises precise traction, power and slip control for each wheel independently to ensure complete driver control.
The Pajero is also equipped with front, side and curtain airbags.
The centrepiece of the Pajero’s dashboard is the Rockford Acoustic Design premium sound system comprising 12 speakers, an 860-watt amplifier, digital signal processor (DSP) and a 5.1 channel theater surround system, allowing sound balance to be adjusted to focus on the front seats, middle row or the whole cabin.
The driver is able to control the 6-CD/USB/AUX compatible sound system via buttons on the steering wheel. The four-spoke steering wheel itself has wood inserts and leather wrapping for a luxurious feel.
Other comfort and convenience features include leather seats, powered front seats, automatic climate control, rear air-conditioning with independent control, plus roof and floor vents for second and third row occupants.
The highly specified Pajero also comes with a tilt and slide sunroof, cruise control, keyless entry, auto levelling HID headlamps, 18-inch alloy wheels, aluminium pedals plus automatic lights and wipers.
Fully imported from Japan, the Mitsubishi Pajero is priced at RM298,980.00 on-the-road inclusive of insurance and is available in four colours – Warm White Mica, Black Mica, Cool Silver Metallic and Quartz Brown Metallic.
Owners get to enjoy a 3-year/100,000 km warranty as well as a 2-year/40,000 km free maintenance for an added peace of mind.
