Mistubishi Motors M’sia launches the new Pajero

This new generation Pajero is the one which is not like the previous model when it was merely an off-road 4×4 but now they have injected more of what is demanded in the market today, comfort and luxury. While one might ask just where this model will fit into MMM’s product line up, it is meant for those who are looking for a no-nonsense four wheeler that comes with a certain extent of comfort and style.

The new Pajero comes with a 3.8 liter V6 engine that boosts out some 250 horses and 329Nm of torque at 2,750rpm. The engine is the one that adopts the single overhead cam engine and Mitsubishi’s trademark MIVEC mated with the INVECS-II, 5 speed automatic transmission gearbox that comes with a Sports mode, allowing you to engage the manual override transmission.

For more power, you can get the Super Select 4WD II system that comes with 4 modes which you can select, depending on the terrain you are in. If you are going for an economical drive, meaning that you are not climbing hills and such, you can use the 2H mode. Its default mode is 4H, which gives you better traction while 4HLc with locked centre differential is where the engine distributes equal power to all 4 tyres. In the 4LLc mode, the car is pretty much at its most powerful where it is like 4HLc in low gears.

Apart from that, you also get the ASTC which stands for Active Stability and Traction Control which is a computerized system that gathers information in real time while monitoring the status of the vehicle as well as the steering angle subsequently regulating the brake force and drive torque for each of the wheels. This will definitely help in improving the handling of the car and its performance. It is also fitted in with eth Multi-mode ABS and EBS as well as curtain, front and side airbags. The car starts at RM289,980.00
