In the world of crossovers, the Pajero Sport remains one of the rare genuine SUVs that are ready to deal with much harder tasks. It’s been sold in parts of the world like Australia, Indonesia, Japan Brazil, and there, it competes with models like Toyota Fortuner, Ford Everest etc. The current generation has been around since 2015 and it looks like the Japanese manufacturer isn’t rushing with the updates. It looks like the current generation won’t be replaced this year, as some sources were suggesting. Instead, the 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will probably carry on without bigger changes.
This means that you may count on a rugged SUV, which rides on a fully framed platform and offers great off-road performance and a high level of utility. At the same time, it is a pretty good family hauler, as most versions are equipped with three rows of seats. Since it probably won’t feature more important changes, we presume it will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year.
2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Design
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will most likely carry on with the same design, which was introduced in 2015 but also updated in 2019. That update brought a new design, with new headlights, grille and other parts, all base on the brand’s contemporary “Dynamic Shield” design language.
On the other hand, the mechanical aspect hasn’t changed much since the initial launch. This model shares a lot with the L200/Triton pickup. The two models ride on the same platform, share engines and many more. things. However, the Pajero Sport also comes with a few different technical solutions, particularly in terms of the rear suspension setup. Instead of leaf springs, it features a more modern, more refined setup, which provides better comfort and overall ride quality. In terms of off-roading, some of the features you can get are four-wheel drive, low-range gearing, rear locking differential etc.
The 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport interior will also continue in the same way, without more important changes. So, you may count on the same layout, which offers decent quality and a lot of functionality. The dashboard looks good, though not as attractive as those in crossovers. You can notice a bit more conventional aesthetics, hard-touch materials and similar things. On the other hand, the cabin is assembled very well and feels like it could last for decades. Also, there is a decent amount of tech and convenience features you can get, including an 8-inch infotainment screen.
When it comes to seating configurations, base versions come with two rows of seats, which are spacious, comfortable and well-shaped. More expensive versions come with a third row of seats, which isn’t particularly spacious but can be pretty useful.
This is a well-equipped machine, and we have no doubt that the 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will carry on in the same way. Base versions should come with goodies like 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, cloth seats, an 8-inch infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a four-speaker audio system, keyless entry, push-button start, climate control, autonomous emergency braking, hill start assist, speed limited etc.
Of course, there is also a long list of options you can get. Some of the highlights are goodies like two-tone alloy wheels, navigation, a premium audio system, dual-zone climate control, a power liftgate, synthetic leather, power-adjustable front seats, digital instrument display, heated seats, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot warning, parking sensors and more.
2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Engines
Depending on the market, the 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will come with different engine options on offer. For example, versions for the Middle East still use a good-old 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine, which is good for about 220 horsepower.
Still, most markets prefer diesel engines and there are two of them on offer. In most cases, this SUV comes with a familiar 2.4-liter turbodiesel, which is good for about 133kW (181hp), but there are also markets where you can get an older-generation 2.5-liter turbodiesel, which features a max output of 100kW (136hp).
Most engines can be paired with both manual and automatic transmissions.
2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will arrive sometime in the last quarter of the year. Of course, the price will largely depend on the market – the Australian-market version starts at around A$45.000.
