Press release

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation will unveil its new Pajero Sport SUV model at the Moscow Auto Salon 2008 (The Moscow Motor Show) to be held at the Crocus Expo in Moscow between August 26 and September 7 (opens to the public on August 29). The new Pajero Sport will be phased in selected regions such as Russia, the ASEAN area, the Middle East, Latin America and Oceania starting in the fall this year.

Mitsubishi’s latest SUV will be powered by a choice of three engines which all deliver outstanding motive performance and fuel economy: 2.5-liter and 3.2-liter common rail direct injection diesel units and a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline unit.

In terms of architecture, the body of the Pajero Sport is mounted on a new ladder frame to realize high levels of durability and reliability, consistent with the needs of its target markets.

Mitsubishi’s All Wheel Control philosophy, forged through its participation in the Dakar Rally and other contests, informs all of the company’s 4WD systems. The new model will use the Super Select 4WD system, also used in the Pajero SUV, which transmits drive torque effectively to all four wheels on all types of surface. The body, frame and driveline not only give Pajero Sport outstanding off-road performance but allow it to deliver excellent drive dynamics over all surfaces.

The choice of the Moscow Motor Show to unveil the new Pajero Sport is a clear indication of Russia’s eminent position within Mitsubishi Motors. In fiscal 2007 Mitsubishi Motors sold some 100,000 vehicles on the Russian market, boosted by the ever successful Lancer line-up and a popular range of SUVs.

MMC is confident that the new Pajero Sport SUV will make a strong addition to its SUV range, which also includes the Pajero and Outlander. Coming on the heels of the introduction of the Lancer*5 sports sedan last year, this will allow MMC to expand SUV sales and hit a total sales volume of 140,000 units on the Russian market in fiscal 2008.

This is an excellent vehicle that is good to drive on and off the road. It has a good pickup and it is very comfortable for 4 or more people. The most important feature of this Pajero Sport car is its good safety features.

The Pajero is one of the common or popular cars nowadays. I’ve seen lots of Pajero on the road, and I must say that it’s quite impressive because of its macho appearance. Just like them, I’m also looking forward to another enhance model of the Pajero.

I’m not familiar with the new model of Pajero, it looks like the larger version of Rav4.

MMC should put it’s GLS series line into 4x4, I really can’t understand why they should made a 2x4 and 4x4 version while it’s body trims are for 4x4.

The big SUV is not coming to the United States or Western Europe but will be marketed in Russia, the Middle East, Latin America and parts of Asia.

to bad that they had a 2x4 version, MMC should only made a 4x4 version of this, but still it is capable of running up to 145KPH based on my friend, because he has a silver one.

Cheaper to build, stronger in rough terrains, more macho image than a crossover. Stiff on asphalt and bad the pocket, too.

one of the best suv’s in the market, i really like this suv specially when fitted a 22" rims and nitto tires.

Pajero? In some country in Asia this called Montero Sports. Montero sport was rated number 1 in Japan and Other country in Asia because of its Suspension that it can turn tightly even in a narrow corner without Rolling
