Default Introducing the NW GLX-R

Welcome the GLX-R to the Pajero stable

Extra goodies over the MY 13 GLX are.......
Front fog lamps.
Side Steps.
Door sash blackout.
Outer door handle colour key
Outer door mirror colour key
Rear deflector
Manual rear air conditioning
And best of all....Rear Diff Lock (standard on GLX also)

No pricing on the GLX-R yet but you can expect it to be very competetive.

I would be much happier if they brought in an "R" ignoring the GLX bit!!

Having ordered an NW VRX then not being able to have an MY12 VRX available in the colour required then being told that one would be ordered and it would be an MY13, I am extremely interested/concerned re the specs of said VRX, information is very limited! Hence my interest in what the MY 13 spec changes are.

Probably been asked before - is it possible to get the factory diff lock fitted retrospectively? Dealer told me no...

If it had privacy glass it would be perfect.

Ha.... I hadn't refreshed my browser before making this post.
Great minds think alike apparently Lance!

So what does the GLS get that the R doesn't have. Regarding the privacy glass that I don't have on my current GLS the tinting people tell me it is useless and does nothing to keep,the heat out and it still needs a film on it.
And love the diff lock on my GLS, best $700 I spent. After a week on moreton island in the sand the diff lock was far better than traction control.
In practice I find the rear aircon not that great. It's ok but you don't get a lot of airflow out of it. We do use it because its there but with the front on the rear doesn't make a lot of difference. More useful would be a split front like the prado. Not to mention the rear aircon hangs a bit low at the back and can be damaged off road.
And the diff lock must be ordered, no chance of a dealer fiitment.

I reckon the tinting people are either having a lend of you, or they don't know what they are talking about (or a bit of both). The privacy glass on the Paj blocks 95% UV, and around 65% visible and infrared light. It is made into the glass, so unlike tint can't be easily damaged by things rubbing againsts it.

Interesting that they have gone with the black grill, I think the blingy/shiny one looks better, but I suppose there has to be subtle points of difference.

If my NW Platinum had the diff lock it would almost be the perfect Pajero.

Funny though with the rear air, my previous two Paj's did not have it and that is when we did a lot of touring with 3 kids in the back, now they have all grown up and moved away, I have rear air with no one to use it.
