Mitsubishi Australia Shaves Pajero Pricing For 2013

Malcolm Flynn | Dec 11, 2012

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.

Mitsubishi’s 2013 Pajero range is available at dealers now.

    How old is this thing? At least a decade old I think. Not interest in museum pieces from Mitsu

    I love how car makers, and it seems Mitsubishi are leading the way with this, are putting these fugly double din radio units in all their models. Looks like they ram raided a strathfield store and they can't get rid of them fast enough. Why can't they integrate them properly into the dash, and not make them look like $199 aftermarket rubbish

    Ad. The 3 buttons on the bottom of the steering wheel hub. Since when do drivers just so happen to have their hands there. Driver distraction eat your heart out. Mitsubishi is trying way too hard to keep this new. Remember lipstick on a pig is still a pig

        Out of interest which model do you have, I am looking at VRX. Drives better on road then Prado in our recent test drive. Will be 90% on Tarmac.

        We preferred the 3rd row of Prado with airbags otherwise Pajero is our pick so far.

      This vehicle is a nicer drive that the Prado. Tried to like the Prado in Petrol, Diesel and auot but it drives like a ship in heavy seas ie it wallows and it's just as cheap inside as any other 4WD. Typical Toyota product though good, reliable, but totally uninspiring.

      The Pajero is excellent value for the money and has a great if not modern diesel engine that will outperform the Prado diesel

    Hi There,
    I purchased a MY11 Pajero Exceed with all features and all accessory options for which the list was short as the car is packed full of features
    The car has been through flood zones , desert driving and highway. Having previously owned A GU patrol 98', a Landcruiser 200 series and a Pajero now. I can certainly tell you that the Pajero is the most versatile, cost efficient to run and maintain and the most reliable. I would also have to say I have received the best customer service from Mitsubishi dealers. For those critics out there- I am a qualified vehicle technician who has been factory trained by Toyota , Holden and Ford. I know my cars and in the long term, you will be happier with the Pajero.

    One thing to remember its was Pajero S1 that started the whole family-owning SUV market, back in those days you had a choice of the 3 TRUCKS, L/C, L/R or Patrol

    One of THE best and proven 4x4's on the market, does have a habit of rolling over in hardcore 4x4 terrain
