Pajero range chopped and changed as Mitsubishi chases more SUV sales

MITSUBISHI has shuffled its long-standing Pajero large SUV range in Australia, deleting the entry-level GL and replacing the mid-range GLS model with a new GLX-R variant.

Equipment levels have also been lifted in the 2013 Pajero that has landed in showrooms alongside the all-new Outlander and recently updated ASX as Mitsubishi seeks to lift its combined SUV sales by almost 50 per cent by next year.

The diesel-powered five-seat Pajero GLX manual now becomes the most affordable model at $50,990 (plus on-road costs) for the five-speed manual and $53,990 for the five-speed automatic – a $5000 price cut over the previous GLX.

However, that is $400 dearer than the previous GL entry model, albeit with more equipment such as 17-inch alloy wheels, front skid plate, rear fog lamps, roof rails, wheelarch flares, spare wheel cover, leather-wrapped steering wheel, climate-control air-conditioning, Bluetooth with audio streaming and electrically adjustable door mirrors.

The new GLX-R variant becomes the cheapest seven-seat version at $55,990 for the manual – the same price as the previous five-seat GLX – and $58,990 for the automatic.

Like the GLX, the GLX-R is available only with the 3.2-litre turbo-diesel, but adds items such rear-cabin air-conditioning, reversing camera, front fog lamps, rear spoiler and side steps.

The sportier VRX remains in the range, but gains a new manual gearbox version at $60,990, while the automatic price drops from $70,890 to $63,990.

Standard equipment in VRX now includes 18-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors and reversing camera, headlamp washers, auto headlamps, auto windscreen wipers, partial leather interior trim, puddle lamps, turn signal lamps in the exterior mirrors and heated front seats.

The flagship Exceed again comes in both diesel and 3.8-litre V6 petrol variants, both with five-speed automatic transmission as standard.

The diesel Exceed price has dropped from $77,990 to $73,990, while the petrol version has been cut from $74,390 to $71,490.

High-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps, full leather and wood interior, alarm, 12-speaker premium audio system, rear-seat DVD with wireless headphones and extra chrome bling on the exterior are among the Exceed’s standard features.

The current Pajero can trace its lineage back to the NM model released in 1999, with major updates in 2006 and 2008.

So far this year, Pajero sales are down 3.9 per cent, to 6026 units, although November sales spiked 41.7 per cent to 761 units.
