THE NEW MITSUBISHI PAJERO - MORE POWER TO YOU

The new Mitsubishi Pajero is the strongest, quietest, safest and smartest Pajero ever built.

Now with 200BHP and a massive 441NM of torque, it has an increased towing capacity of up to 3,500kg, best in class CO2 emissions of just 207g/km, which means it is not only kinder to the environment, but is also more efficient in returning up to 36.2 mpg. Its Super Select 4 Wheel Drive system means that when it's not towing or driving off-road, you can simply and comfortably deploy 2 Wheel Drive, with the option to switch between the two at speeds of up to 100 km/h.

A trusted workhorse for the last 25 years in Ireland with over 10,000 sold, the Pajero has carved out a very unique niche in the market, where ability and dependability matter first and foremost.

With 4x4’s now being used extensively for business and farming use, the Pajero meets the demands of owners at many different levels while also being the most powerful vehicle in its class.

The new Pajero commercial will be available in both Short Wheel Base (SWB) and Long Wheel Base (LWB). All models come with cruise control, automatic air conditioning, Bluetooth, 18” alloy wheels, traction control and driver, passenger, side and curtain airbags as standard.

Prices for the new Pajero start at €32,262 ex VAT but inclusive of VRT of €200 for the SWB Commercial.

POWER:
The new Pajero is the most powerful vehicle in its class.  Under the bonnet, the power output of the 3.2L diesel engine has been increased by 25% to 200BHP. Torque has been increased by 16% to 441Nm and the Pajero now has a towing capacity of up to 3,500kg*.

ECONOMY:
The Pajero’s emissions have been lowered by 15% while fuel economy has been improved by up to 18%, which helps return a positively frugal fuel consumption figure of 7.8L / 100km or 36.2 MPG.

SAFETY:
The Pajero is one of the safest vehicles on the roads, achieved through a comprehensive package of features which are standard on all models. This includes: ABS with EBD, electronic traction and
stability control with brake assist, Super Select 4 wheel drive system and driver, passenger, curtain and side airbags.

EQUIPMENT:
The new Pajero Commercial range, which will account for 90% of overall Pajero sales in Ireland, has a very high level of standard equipment, which includes:

4 WHEEL DRIVE:
All models in the new range come equipped with Mitsubishi’s Super Select 4WD system, which offers the benefits of 2WD, full-time 4WD and differential locked 4WD all in one package. This system has massive benefits as it gives the driver a choice for the vehicle to be driven in 2WD on normal roads and is especially useful in terms of safety and traction when towing, driving in bad weather conditions or when driving off road.

SALES:
Commenting on the launch of the new Pajero, Robert Guy, General Manager for Mitsubishi Motors Ireland said: 'While studying the market for the new Pajero, we talked at length with Irish owners. We found that more than ever, people are looking for low cost ownership, reliability, performance, fuel economy and good residual values when considering a new vehicle. While the market has changed drastically over the last few years, these criteria are more important than ever. We are a privately owned Irish company and a part of Frank Keane Holdings, and have held the Mitsubishi Motors franchise since the brand was first introduced to Ireland in 1984. Since its debut in 1982, Mitsubishi Motors in Japan has produced millions of Pajero’s, including more than 10,000 for Irish owners. We are confident that the new Pajero will remain one of the most popular choices in the segment.”

SERVICING & WARRANTY:
In answering the call for low cost ownership Mitsubishi Motors Ireland is offering up to five years warranty. While the Pajero comes with a 3 year / 100,000km warranty as standard, the option of two additional years is now available in Dealerships. The Pajero also comes with three years home and roadside assistance.

*The towing capacity of the Pajero Long Wheel Base is 3,500kg while the Short Wheel Base towing capacity is 3,000kg.
