I can't beleive how hopeless mitsubishi are, here they are brining out this great new model which is exactly what I was looking for when I settled on the Pajero, and you are flat out finding one in the yards, I can't beleive they don't have them plastered in the most prominent postion in the lot. I drive past multiple MM yards and they have the Pajeros, Outlanders, Lancers out the front, and you can't even see a challenger except one ef them. It's like to me that they have bought out this new model but haven't got the production going to support it. I by no means think the Challenger will put a dint in the prado sales, but it is exactly what the market needs to fill the gap between SUV's and Larger 4WD's. Look at Toyota for example, they bring out a new model and flood every yard and the road now with them. Learn from them MM if you want to make a difference.

thats my point, they bring out a new model but can't support it, that will just piss people off and make them go look elswere.

Appears like Mitsubishi are just taking orders for a big launch in a month or so. Has anyone actually driven one home yet?

I suspect Mitsui are waiting for Daves favourable report before the big launch!

I drove a demo home and it fits the garage so I ordered one and it is due end of Feb or early March. Production may have just started up again in Thailand.

Not to say it is going to be favourable. Truth beknown I haven't seen a Challenger in the flesh yet. Just haven't had time to look at one . I have a fair idea what they drive like on the road, it is my main interest to see what they are like offroad. More so if I am thinking of purchasing one down the track.

Mate saw a heap of them coming off the ships in freo on the wknd.
Yeah I wondered the same driving around over Christmas, was expecting to see the challenger up in lights at all the dealers and was keen to check one out. I only saw one locked up round the side of the dealer. I guess the general public aren?t as excited about the new challenger and most didn?t know it had been released until the adds came on tele. Seems to be the way of all manufacturers though to hype up the new model months before they have stock to sell. Latest prado and landcruisers where the same. Guess the justification is they are never sure how popular a new model will be.
