Mitshubishi discontinues its legendary model – the Mitsubishi Pajero – in August 2019. Last 700 units for Japan will be released. Fortunately, the SUV remains on sale in other markets (more than 70).
The Japanese carmaker will stop the production of the Pajero in Japan in the end of summer. Before this, more than 700 Final Edition vehicles go on sale on the domestic market.
The model started its history in Japan in 1982 and ends its glorious way in 2019. Over 640,000 Pajeros have been sold within this long period.
The farewell Mitsubishi Pajero Final Edition will cost 4.53 million yen (about $40,490).
Special equipment includes a multimedia system with a 7-inch screen, leather trim, an electric sunroof, winter package. There are special body colors, glowing door sills and nameplates, as well as a plate with a specific car number from the Final Edition series.
The Mitsubishi Pajero has not changed under the skin. It is powered by a 190-hp 3.2-liter diesel engine with a 5-speed automatic transmission and Super-Select 4WD II (four-wheel drive with locking rear differential).
The current-generation Pajero is much more advanced than its predecessor. It debuted in 2006 at the Paris Motor Show. The model underwent updates in 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2015 to remain competitive.
The motor range for various markets includes gasoline V6 with 3-, 3.5- and 3.8-liter displacement, as wells as a couple of diesel engines.
