Mitsubishi’s flagship SUV, the Pajero, gets an updated Euro 4 compliant diesel engine that delivers more power and torque pull. Moreover, the Pajero is designed with an improved NVH (Noise, Vibration, and Harshness) for a better and refined ride comfort.
For 2016, the Pajero is equipped with an upgraded 4M41 diesel engine with Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT) system. With this, the Pajero’s 3.2L diesel engine’s power output increased by 27 hp and 68 Nm of torque. It now delivers 192 hp and 441 Nm of torque as compared to the outgoing engine’s power rating of 165 hp and 373 Nm. Pajero’s new engine is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission with manual select.
In addition, the vehicle comes standard with Super Select 4WD-II as well as Mitsubishi Active Stability and Traction Control (M-ASTC) system, which helps the driver maintain control of the vehicle on slippery road surfaces and sudden steering wheel input.
The 2016 Pajero is also available with the same 3.8L V6 MIVEC gasoline engine.
Exterior-wise, the Pajero is fitted with LED daytime running lights and HID headlights with automatic dimming function.
The diesel variant of the 2016 Pajero is priced at P2,750,000. On the other hand, the gasoline variant has a price tag of P2,550,000.
