Default The End of an Era?

This is taken from another website. Sad indeed, if it is true.



Mitsubishi Pajero Final Edition is limited to 1,000 units (300 units of 3 door and 700 units of five door); will also come with a unique number plaque Mitsubishi is going to discontinue the iconic off-roader Pajero globally. The Pajero was first introduced in 1982 and since then the model was a popular choice for hard core off-road enthusiasts. Even though Pajero can put some new generation SUV to shame in off-roading the competition have moved on and customers demand more from their vehicles. In the last few years, sales of Pajero were going down and finally the Japanese manufacturer has decided to pull the plug. To celebrate the long history of Pajero, Mitsubishi has introduced final edition models in both three door and five door body styles. The final edition is limited to 1000 units only (300 units of 3 door and 700 units of five door) and it will also come with a unique number plaque.

They'll be making them in China for years to come. And that means Russia will still get them too.


They had Gen 2 until about 2012, IIRC. Wasn't until the last couple of trips there that I saw any Gen 4s.


So, all good. As long as you don't mind left hand drive, that whole Asian overdone luxury look, two tone paint and a 6G72 engine (admittedly better than anything sold here, but sadly lacking in torque).

I think that's just referring to the Japanese domestic market and not global production/sales?

Talking to a guy at the local Mitsi dealership today and he said MM have done a U-turn and the Paj was most likely being resurrected with a new model late this year. Just talks but he sounded pretty certain.

Fix the problem with tow ball weights, put in some new styling, move the spare wheel so that you can carry a rubbish bag, raise the spare wheel so it clears the trailer better, keep the awesome donk and the Super select 4WD system and coupled with all Toyota's DPF problems they'd be on a big winner.

Yeah I hope so., I don't think it will be a straight diesel though, I reckon it will probably be PHEV.

More likely to be a rebadged Nissan Patrol If the "Alliance" have their way. The new mitsubishi L300 coming out this year is a Renault Trafic.
