Boldly tow

Pajero’s reputation for towing is well earned. The combination of engine, gearbox, massive brakes and traction systems results in a braked towing capacity of 3 tonnes.

Diesel power

This engine harnesses the leading edge of diesel technology. Fuel is delivered through a Direct Injection Common Rail system – the same system we use on our big commercial trucks. The Intercooled Turbo boosts the already large low-end torque and adds smoothness and power throughout the rev range. It makes light work of hauling a boat up a slippery ramp or launching you up to motorway speeds.

The figures sum it up: 150kW of power and a hefty 448Nm of torque. What’s surprising is that all this power comes from 3.2 litres - a higher output than many engines of much greater size.

The final word is the economy: just 9.0 litres per 100km.

Making the most of the power

The perfect gear box for these two power house engines is the INVECS II 5-speed automatic transmission. Not only does it let the engine work most effectively at any rev speed, it adapts your driving style. The Smart Logic system measures your use of the pedals and adapts its changes to suit how you drive. The result is smooth acceleration and a more predictable ride, which is very reassuring on uncertain surfaces.

A very safe place to be

All models of Pajero feature a raft of air bags as standard. There are front airbags for driver and passenger, as well as side and curtain airbag. With Pajero’s ride height and stiff body construction, the feeling of protection is very reassuring.

RISE monocoque body design

Mitsubishi’s Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution body design, or RISE, is what gives Pajero its remarkable strength. This means the occupant area keeps its shape in a collision and energy is transferred away. A stiffer body also means better handling.

The monocoque frame is a system we adapted from aircraft design. It’s a major factor in the vehicle's integrity and lowers the centre of gravity for better, safer cornering. The bonnet is made of lightweight aluminium for the same reason.

5 Star

A combination of active and passive safety systems help Pajero achieve a 5 Star ANCAP safety crash rating so you can be reassured you'll be just as safe on the road and off the road
