About the Mitsubishi Pajero Legacy

Pajero’s rich heritage began in 1982 when it was first introduced as a new multi-purpose vehicle. Mitsubishi developed a 4WD that offered good handling and comfortable ride. Unlike the other 4WD during that time, the Pajero made a distinction not only because of the good handling but also because of its comfortable ride even at rough roads and outstanding performance that any driver could enjoy.

After only six months since it first appeared in 1982, the Pajero was entered in to the Dakar Rally which was a perfect venue of testing its performance. The Dakar Rally is the world toughest cross-country rally requiring drivers to drive thousands of kilometers of no-road routes ranging from sandy desert to rocky, rough, and muddy terrain. The Dakar Rally also provided the grounds for refining Pajero to the limits of its potential.

Nine years after, a full model change made way for the introduction of the second generation of Pajero. New technologies were developed and one major development was the new Super Select 4WD featuring a VCU center differential. The Super Select distinctively improved on-road drivability and created new 4WD value.

The Pajero, which had already eliminated the on-road and off-road boundary, traversed the evolutionary road to its 3rd generation iteration in 1999. The new generation achieved a low center-of-gravity body balance while maintaining good road clearance. It also featured a 4-wheel independent suspension that gave each wheel a secure grip on the road surface.
In 2006, Mitsubishi took the Pajero to the 4th generation in an effort to further perfect the marque in all areas while remaining true to the original development philosophy. New 3.8 liter V6 MIVEC gasoline engine and 3.2 liter DI-D engine were introduced.

This year the Pajero marks 30 years of undoubted excellent performance perfected through continuous research and development and applying its rally experience. To date, Mitsubishi has already sold around 3 million units of Pajero worldwide. The Pajero remains to be a symbol of success and passion for performance.
