The third generation of Mitsubishi Pajero which was launched globally in 2015 is expected to arrive at Mitsubishi dealerships by April 2018. The new generation Pajero will host major cosmetic changes and a few tweaks in the drive train.

The exterior is revamped and the new car loses the entire rugged look, instead it carries a more futuristic design. A large grille up front with chrome garnishes and sharp LED DRL inserts in the headlamp assemble take the premium SUV look up by a few notches. The side exhibits large fenders and neatly integrated foot board. The rear is styled similar with futuristic tail lamp and an upswept rear bumper for a greater departure angle.

Inside the cabin is a restyled dashboard with a touch screen infotainment system. The new car gets a redesigned steering wheel with steering mounted controls and behind it is a new refreshed instrument cluster unit.

Powering the new Pajero Sport would be the same 2.5-litre turbo diesel engine producing 175bhp. Current generation gets a five-speed automatic and a five-speed manual gearbox though the new generation is expected to get an all-new gearbox. The ‘Super select’ four-wheel drive system from Mitsubishi will continue to stay on offer.

Mitsubishi officials have not confirmed any detail though the current generation is due an update. The launch is speculated for April 2018, though the Pajero Sport is expected to be showcased in the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo which will be held early next year. When launched, the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will continue its rivalry with Isuzu MU-X, Ford Endeavour and the Toyota Fortuner.
