The 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero is a classy full-size SUV that comes with the very elegant exterior and upscale interior. Mitsu’s established lineup of SUVs is astonishing and Pajero is a perfect fit. Pajero is also famous under the name “Montero” and the fourth-generation is ready to arrive.
The 2019 Pajero comes with two different body styles, a three and five-door models are in the offer. All-wheel drive setup is also available and even a plug-in hybrid variant will hit the production. The changes for the upcoming model are visible, the performance is great and off-roading is perhaps the best thing about this SUV. The new model sits on the popular Patrol model platform.
2019 Mitsubishi Pajero exterior is sportier
The all-new 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero comes with a wild and athletic stance. Generally, this SUV looks sporty and aggressive and most of the features are looking really modern and sharp. The front end now comes with the new headlights and the front grille is new as well.
More chrome materials and accents are included, especially around the grille. Front bumper is revised and is larger than before. Moreover, air intakes are also bigger so the air flow is much better now. New headlights are available with the LED units and LED fog lights are optional on the base model.
The changes continue to the sides where we can see new sharper creases and body lines. The shape will remain, just like the dimensions, however, this SUV is slightly lighter than its predecessor.
2019 Mitsubishi Pajero interior is same as in the predecessor
The interior of the 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero still looks the same. On the other hand, technology is now a lot better, so the customers can opt for even more optional equipment. The seats are comfortable and are available in high-end materials.
Those seats are supportive and if you want leather upholstery, you’ll have to spit additional money. More wood accents and chrome materials are making the cabin to look even better and piano black inserts are looking brilliant.
Tech wise, a new infotainment system is available and it supports the latest phone integration systems like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Higher trim levels are coming with a new and premium audio system and tri-zone climate control as standard. List of standard safety systems will stay intact, but the optional list is now slightly longer.
2019 Mitsubishi Pajero powertrain options
What we like about the upcoming 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero is its wide lineup of engines. The new Pajero will arrive with three powertrain choices. A standard 3.0-liter gasoline unit is capable of producing up to 240 HP. Optional 3.8-liter V6 gasoline engine provides 245 HP.
The difference is small, but the optional V6 will for sure come with a higher number of torques. Sadly, we’ll have to wait a little longer to see exact engine specs.
After months of speculations, it is confirmed that the plug-in hybrid model will also be in the offer. Pairing an optional V6 engine with an electric motor will create around 325 HP and 300 lb-ft of torque.
An 8-speed automatic transmission is available with all three engines and rear-wheel drive is standard. Optional all-wheel drive setup is available too and is recommendable.
2019 Mitsubishi Pajero price and launch date
The forthcoming 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero costs slightly higher than before thanks to the latest updates. Starting price is $33,000 and top trim will cost almost $50,000.
Hybrid models will cost at least $40,000 and this full-size SUV will go on sale in the first half of 2019. The U.S. version will come under the name “Montero” and it will arrive a couple of months later.
