PERFORMANCEAT YOUR COMMANDMitsubishi's advanced control technologies were first conceived and developed to meet the challenges of the world's most gruelling rally courses. AWC (All Wheel Control) incorporates many of these rally-proven technologies to deliver precise traction, power and slip control for each wheel independently to ensure complete driver control in extreme conditions.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
3.8L 24-Valve V6 SOHC MIVEC Pajero's 3.8-liter engine puts an incredible 250PS* at your command ensuring that you'll never be short on power. The new MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing Electronic Control) system varies the inlet valve timing and lift to optimize engine output across more of the rev range. The net result is enjoyment of the full potential this powerhouse has to offer, with quicker starting response and sure, confident cruising performance. *5-Door 5 AT models
3.5L 24-Valve V6 SOHC The 3.5-liter V gasoline engine delivers an incredible amount of output power for high-range cruising on the open highway, while still providing plenty of torque to give you an ample pulling capability when hauling heavy loads ot help you get through rough driving conditions with confidence. The ECI-MULTI electronically controlled fuel injection system maximizes intake efficiency to produce more complete combustion, resulting in fewer emissions and giving you even, responsive acceleration you can depend on at any speed. And the single overhead camshaft design reduces engine vibration and mechanical noise for a smooth and quiet ride.
INVECS-II AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION INVECS-II studies driving habits and complements them. Optimum Shift Control analyses conditions and driving style, comparing them to its database of shift patterns to balance power, control and efficiency. Adaptive shift control studies acceleration and brake timing, then learns to anticipate driver actions.
Sports Mode For AT Standard on all AT models, Sports Mode delivers the excitement of a manual shift while still providing the convenience of an automatic. Changing gears for enhanced response and performance with just a touch of the shifter, Sports Mode reminds you of what driving was like back when you first learned how.
SUPER SELECT 4WD II (SS4 II)
Pajero's advanced SS4 II lets you shift between 2H, 4H and 4 HLc modes at speeds of up to 100 km/h providing on-demand control for highway performance or off-road traction whenever you need it.
2H (2WD high range)
For cruising down the highway or just making a quick trip across town, 2H mode shifts you into rear-wheel drive for smooth, quiet, fuel efficient performance.
4H (4WD high range)
When the weather gets bad and the roads start turning rough, 4H mode provides added traction. The dynamic front/rear torque split adjusts between 33:67 and 50:50 to give you greater control for high speed driving.
4HLc (4WD high range with locked center differential)
Keeping you on track even in rugged or slippery conditions, the 4HLc mode distributes power to all four wheels equally for off-road excitement with a steady sense of control.
4LLc (4WD low range with locked center differential)
Switch to 4LLc mode when you need all the tractor-like crawling power Pajero is capable of. Maximized low-end torque pulls you through even the roughest terrain, stickiest mud and deepest snow.
Variable Intake Manifold
Designed for the 3.8-liter engine, it further optimizes performance by adjusting air intake. At low and mid rpm ranges, only the primary port is used, increasing airflow speed for better torque and quicker starts, enhancing off-road escape-ability and fuel efficiency. At higher rpm ranges, both intake ports open to increase airflow volume and maximize power.
Common Rail Fuel System
The critical factor in precision diesel engines is pressure. By using a Common Rail to supply fuel injector lines, a single pump can provide constant high fuel pressure. In addition, the ECU electronically controls fuel flow to allow three injections with every cycle, maximizing power output while minimizing waste and emissions.
Cyclone-Type Pre-Air Cleaner
To perform at its best, an engine needs a continuous flow of clean air. The pre-air cleaner, featured on all models, increases air intake while filtering out dust and moisture. With the engine breathing easy, Pajero is ready to take on any road.
