Mitsubishi Pajero, a Brief History

In 1973 Mitsubishi motors introduced the prototype for the basis of the Pajero line, this was followed by another prototype in 1978 dubbed the Pajero II.

Because it does not translate well into certain languages, the name Pajero was not considered marketable in other nations. As a result, Mitsubishi was compelled to manufacture separate name badges depending on where the car was released, resulting in the Mitsubishi Shogun and Mitsubishi Montero being used interchangeably.

The first generation of products for the Pajero was 1982, this generation ran until 1991 and was initially released as a three-door with the option of a metal or canvas top and three different engine variations. You can buy the best Mitsubishi Pajero accessories online.
