Mitsubishi has revised its Pajero 4WD lineup and pricing for 2013, with improved value across all models.
Gone is the previous entry GL model, with a rejigged GLX model now forming the Pajero starting point.
Pricing for the now five-seat GLX 147kW/441Nm diesel drops to $50,990 with a five-speed manual transmission, and $53,990 for the five-speed automatic version.
Both GLX versions are $5000 cheaper than before, but $400 more than the previous GL model. This $400 is offset by the GLX’s climate control, bluetooth connectivity, leather steering wheel, and electric mirrors.
On the outside, the GLX betters the previous GL with standard 17-inch alloys, front skid plate, rear fog lights, roof rails, wheelarch flares, and spare wheel cover.
A new GLX-R model is now the cheapest seven-seat model, matching the GLX’s previous pricing of $55,990 in manual, and $58,990 in automatic.
Aside from the extra two pews, the GLX-R gains rear cabin air-conditioning, reversing camera, front fog lights, rear spoiler and side steps.
The VRX model is now available in manual guise for $60,990, whilst the automatic version drops $6900 to $63,990.
VRX models now come equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels, reversing camera and sensors, headlamp washers, auto headlamps and wipers, partial leather trim with front seat heaters, puddle lamps and side mirror-mounted indicators.
The top-tier Exceed remains auto-only, and the only model available with the 184kW/329Nm 3.8 litre petrol V6.
Pricing for the Exceed has also dropped, with the diesel now $4000 cheaper at $77,990, and the petrol $2900 cheaper at $71,490.
The Exceed’s equipment remains as before, adding high-intensity discharge headlamps, full-leather and woodgrain trim, 860W Rockford audio system, rear-seat DVD and wireless headphones, and chrome door handles and mirrors.
