Landmark “Japanese” will to live. And we hope, it’s not about banal “badge-engineering”.
Mitsubishi Pajero fourth generation is produced since 2006 and has long been asking for a rest. Recently, the model has left the markets of Germany and Japan.
However, to bury the Pajero seems to be too early. The head of the Australian division of the “three diamonds” John Signorello in an interview with reporters CarsGuide hinted: a platform for the fifth generation model will share a relative Alliance Nissan Patrol. Given that the Green continent is one of the key markets for Pajero, Mr. Signorello definitely aware of the situation.
The question of the timing of the revival is still open. As the details. A new generation Pajero might be the result of “badge-engineering” current “Patrol”, and a fundamentally new model on a common platform. The second option is preferable: Patrol sixth generation is available since 2010 and despite a recent update, he is in need of replacement.
