The refreshed 2023 Mitsubishi Pajero will reportedly arrive next year, bringing some drastic changes and upgrades. There were many speculations lately, and the next generation model could be the last Pajero ever produced. As far as we know, the manufacturer will likely introduce the fresh-new SUV next year.
Besides more attractive design and completely revised front fascia, buyers can also expect a more modern cabin as well. On the other hand, there were speculations that the next model would be electrified. Anyway, the current Pajero comes equipped with a turbodiesel engine that develops more than adequate power. It produces 189 horsepower and a maximum torque of 325 lb.-ft.
2023 Mitsubishi Pajero Rumors
Considering the 2023 Mitsubishi Pajero might be the last model ever built, we presume the manufacturer will bring many refreshments. So, we expect a completely new front fascia with some cosmetic enhancements like the new headlights and additional chrome accents to increase in luxury. Certain details will remain, and the Pajero will keep the same boxy appearance and proportions.
At this point, we don’t know all the details, but many believe the next Pajero will borrow a few styling cues from the popular Outlander SUV.
What’s New Inside?
Like the exterior overhaul, expect no fewer changes inside. The 2023 Mitsubishi Pajero will receive a completely new cabin with more quality materials compared to its predecessor. Actually, buyers can expect plenty of soft touches that will replace hard plastic, but the majority of the interior will probably remain the same. Depending on the package and trim level, the Pajero can be very luxurious.
On the upper trim like Sport, you will get leather upholstery, larger infotainment system, brushed aluminum pedals, and a panoramic sunroof. The next Pajero may also receive some additional standard features and new safety aids.
2023 Mitsubishi Pajero Engine Specs
From numerous sources, the next-generation 2023 Mitsubishi Pajero could be powered by a hybrid powertrain. Unfortunately, there are no official statement about this claim, and we’ll have to wait for Mitsubishi to reveal more details. Many believe the hybrid powertrain is possible, and it could be similar to the Mitsubishi Outlander SUV.
This model uses a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor, delivering a range of up to 30 miles on pure electric power. On the other hand, there is a possibility the Mitsubishi Pajero will continue to use the same powertrain as its predecessor. The current model uses a 3.2-liter engine that produces 189 horsepower and a maximum torque of 325 lb.-ft.
When Can We Expect the Mitsubishi Pajero?
The new 2023 Mitsubishi Pajero is a very popular SUV, offering great design and even better cabin. This legendary model has been in production for over 40 years. As per many rumors, the next generation will be the last, and we can expect it to debut sometime in 2022.
The price is not available yet, but everything less than $35,000 is a good deal. In the same pricing range are models such as the Toyota Fortuner and Nissan Patrol. Mitsubishi will probably provide additional information in the following months.
