Looking at the Youtube vid, I see it more as an updated Outlander rather than a genuine Pajero. Some reasons....

No Low Range .
There appears to be a centre diff lock switch???
The tailgate is straight off the old Outlander
Spare wheel must be underneath (if it has one at all).
The fuel filler is on the L side (old Pajero is on the Right).
The tyres (and wheels) look far too small for a real Pajero.
The front styling is an evolution of the MY15 Outlander (fugly in my opinion)

I know that there has been a Pajero Sport around for years overseas, and this has been based on the Challenger, but I thinnk this is not a replacement for the real Pajero. Whatever, the thinking must be swinging round to making a smaller, lighter vehicle and (perish the thought) maybe this is it???

This vehicle is the new Challenger (otherwise known as Pajero Sport or Montero Sport in different markets - these aren't based on the Challenger, they are the same vehicle with a different name). It's based on the newest Triton ute.

It most certainly does have low range. It runs the Mitsubishi Super Select system, the same as in the Pajero and the higher spec Tritons, although this vehicle also has some settings for rock/sand etc which alter pedal response etc.

The tyres and wheels are at least the same size as those on the triton ute (some reports I've read suggested they are the same as the current Pajero) and it has a full size spare under the rear (again, as per the Triton).

I googled "2017 Pajero", everything that comes up is for "Pajero Sport".

That is one totally fugly car. You would have to close your eyes every time you walked out the house.

Ugh.

Hopefully it is just another one of those designer day dream sessions.

Regards
Doug

Looks like it was produced at the Astro Boy school of design. But nice to see someone is still thinking of a successor to the current Paj.

Nice blind spot in the rear windows! Looks like a badly designed Range Rover.

Those things protruding out the sides of the front door windows look like cameras rather than rear-view mirrors? Perhaps the acre of sheet metal behind the rear door windows does not constitute a blind spot? It's all a bit bizarre to me, but I suppose that's what "concept cars" are all about.

I wish we still got the shorty out here. Still one of the best looking Pajeros IMHO.
That new design looks a bit Rangeroverish to me.

I wouldn't get too excited that article is from May 2015, late last year Nov/Dec head of MM stated that the next gen pajero has been shelved. The latest articel I read was hinting at the next generation pajero being released in 2021.

Isn't the next pajero a platform share with the Titanic sized Patrol?
