The forthcoming 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero is a first-class SUV that looks elegant from the outside and premium from the inside. It is a wild model in a Mitsubishi’s wide lineup of compact and full-size SUVs. There are three and five-door models and even an all-wheel-drive configuration is available. Also known as Montero or Shogun, the 2019 Pajero entered its fourth generation and changes are likely. That includes a probable plug-in hybrid version and a couple of minor exterior changes.
This SUV is perfect for the off-roading, and a fun fact is that Pajero won the Dakar Rally races 15 times. Upscale interior, aggressive exterior styling, and powerful performance are what makes this SUV so special.
2019 Mitsubishi Pajero exterior is nicely crafted
The Pajero model will arrive with sporty and mean stance and some cues are now looking sharper than before. The front end gets new headlights and a new front grille. Both of them will get nice chrome accenting.
A revised front bumper is slightly larger, just like the air intakes that are providing better air flow. Headlights are available in LED technology, while the LED fog lights are optional.
The body suffers some refinement and it gains a couple of sharp body lines and creases. Generally, it is the same body, and even the dimension are intact. The weight is reduced and the fuel economy is improved as a result.
2019 Mitsubishi Pajero interior comes with high-quality materials
The interior will remain the same, however, the 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero gets a well-deserved update of technology features. The list of the features is long, both standard and optional. The interior comes with great comfort and the seats come in high-quality materials. Moreover, the seats are supportive and leather seats are optional.
The interior will benefit from an additional use of chrome and wood accents, and even piano black inserts are in the offer.
It is a premium and upscale interior and everything is boosted thanks to the new infotainment system. If you opt for top-range trim level, premium audio system, automatic climate controls and more safety features are available.
