Is it bound for the US?
Though it has been absent from our market for quite a few years, the Mitsubishi Pajero continues to live on in other areas of the world, marketed in some countries under the names Montero and Shogun. Now, the company has brought its updated 2015 version of the SUV (revealed last month in Japan) to the Moscow International Auto Show. Equipped with predominantly cosmetic tweaks, the Pajero will live on in other markets. But will it also make a comeback to the US?
Last year, we reported that Mitsubishi plans to revive its presence in the American market, assisted by its range of SUVs and EVs. If that's still the plan, this refreshed Pajero could be in important player in the game. The exterior updates revealed in Moscow include new chrome bars, new fog light surrounds, a reshaped bumper, DRLs, and redesigned taillight graphics. Inside, improved insulation, a new ignition switch and new options complete the picture. But will this be enough to reconquer the hearts of American buyers?
