2009 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport SUV based on Mitsubishi L200 Triton
Mitsubishi released 2009 model of its breakthrough SUV Mitsubishi Pajero Sport 2009 in the Moscow show in September 2008. Since Toyota Fortuner 2009 has also been released it should be an interesting match between the Titans for supremacy in the SUV segment. Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is a SUV or PPV in the same class as Toyota Fortuner or Isuzu MU-7. When Mitsubishi decided to retire Mitsubishi L200 Strada in favor of Mitsubishi L200 Triton in 2005, it also retired G-Wagon the PPV or SUV based on Strada. Mitsubishi fans were waiting for an SUV to be released and they have waited three years and their wait has been well rewarded with a Mitsubishi Pajero Sport SUV. Pajero Sport has the same four wheel drive system as Mitsubishi Pajero.
The Pajero Sport (Montero Sport in Spain and Shogun Sport in the UK) is the perfect car in town and the perfect car to get you away from it. This sports utility vehicle offers the all-round flexibility that the modern executive demands. It is stylishly elegant, yet rugged enough to appeal to your sporting instincts.
The Pajero Sport is based on the ladder-frame chassis from the Triton, and it will use 2500 cc and 3200 cc Triton engines. The Pajero Sport will be unveiled in Russia first, and will eventually make its way to other countries including the ASEAN region. It will be offered in 5 and 7 seat variants, but we can expect the Thai model to have 7 seats, to match up to competition from Toyota, Isuzu and Ford. Pricing should also be in the THB 1 million range, topping out around THB 1.1 million.
