2015 Mitsubishi Pajero – Should You Wait For 2016?
The new 2015 Mitsubishi Pajero will be the last one before the implementation of the new manufacturing concept intended to improve Mitsubishi vehicles, and the 2016 Pajero will most probably suffer a dramatic change. It is true that they have a plan to boost sales figures by 30% in 2016. They will try to accomplish that goal using the qualities of the concepts already seen at the Tokyo Motor Show last year. These concepts (XR-PHEW SUV, GC-PHEW full-size SUV and AR, which stands for “Active Runabout” with turbocharged direct-injected small-capacity combustion engine) no matter how the public feels about them now, will have to pass a lot of tests and fulfill a lot of demanding expectations before their time comes. Nobody will be surprised if the 2016 Pajero comes with a lot of changes seen in this concepts. Does this mean the 2015 Mitsubishi Pajero is not good at all? Should we wait for 2016?
WILL THE 2015 MITSUBISHI PAJERO GET A REDESIGN?
Well, the 2015 Mitsubishi Pajero can be a milestone, an SUV which will be the first one to have new features. It’s not known for sure will it look like a slightly refreshed old Pajero, or a brand new GC-PHEW. Some relevant opinions bring us the information that the 2015 Mitsubishi Pajero will come as a blend of its predecessor and the concept which should inherit its name. That way the people at Mitsubishi will have some customers’ feedback and a decent amount time for tweaks until the 2016 Pajero is released. There’s no reason to wait until the next generation Pajero, so they can introduce the new features.
