Adding to the brand's range of special edition models, Mitsubishi Australia has today announced availability of the 2011 Pajero RX, bringing a number of unique styling and equipment features.
As with the Outlander RX, the Pajero RX gains a sports-styled chrome grille frame and 18-inch alloy wheels, along with chrome mirrors and door handles, sidesteps with integrated mud guards, front skid plates and a rear deflector.
Externally, the Pajero RX's styling tweaks are rounded out by a rear spoiler, silver roof rails and RX badges.
In the cabin, the special Pajero gets an alloy automatic transmission lever, transfer select lever and park-brake lever, along with a six-CD audio system.
As with all 2011 Pajero variants - announced only last week - the Pajero RX gets side and curtain airbags, along with Active Stability Control, Active Traction Control, Engine Brake Assist Control, ABS and Electronic Brake-force Distribution.
The Pajero line-up is also equipped with Mitsubishi's Super Select 4WD II, All Terrain Technology and Mitsubishi Body Optimised Suspension.
“The Pajero RX features all the technology, power and four-wheel drive capabilities Pajero is famous for in a stylish package. It’s the extras in the Pajero RX that enhance the driving experience for drivers and passengers alike,” Mitsubishi Australia President and CEO Masahiko Takahashi said.
The Pajero range, including the Pajero RX, is available with either a 3.8 litre petrol engine or a 3.2 litre diesel engine, both available with manual and automatic transmissions.
