Mitsubishi has streamlined its big Challenger SUV, dropping the two-wheel-drive option and seven-seat configuration from the 2014 line-up.
The top-shelf XLS model is also gone from the cut-down range, leaving a trio of 4WDs made up of two entry models and one up-spec 'LS' option.
The revised range also brings a light styling update, with the Challenger getting new headlights and a new grille, along with a re-styled front bumper and subtly updated tail-lights.
There's also a number of updated interior features on-board, but none of this comes without a price, as the range has copped a price increase of between $1000 and $2000 for the 2014 model year.
The price increase is credited to a boost in standard features, including a 6.1 inch touchscreen with reversing camera, along with four speakers, Bluetooth/auxiliary audio inputs and voice control.
Other standard features include cruise control, leather steering wheel, steering-mounted audio controls, climate control and rear air-con ducts.
Step up to the LS model and there's a seven-inch touchscreen, 3D sat nav, six speakers, leather seats (power adjusted up front), tinted glass, automatic wipers and a cargo blind.
All models are powered by Mitsubishi's 2.5-litre direct-injection turbo-diesel engine, producing 131kW of power and 400Nm of torque in five-speed manual form, and 350Nm with the five-speed auto.
