The Mitsubishi Pajero SWB has been given a number of improvements for the 2014 model year, including the addition of advanced safety features.
Updates for 2014
Updates to the car include a rear diff-lock as part of the standard specification. This feature is linked to the shift-on-the-fly Super Select system which offers 2WD and 4WD (4H) without locked centre differential, where the power is split 33/67 between front/rear wheels giving the driver the benefits of an all-wheel drive vehicle, including better control for high-speed driving.
The Pajero SWB is powered by a 3.2-litre common rail turbodiesel engine producing 140 kW of power and 441 Nm of torque which drives the wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission with the Super-Select all-wheel drive system.
Additional off-road enhancements
Other upgrades to the 2014 model include the addition of a rear-view camera, privacy glass, colour-coded door handles and side-mirrors, as well as a USB port.
Standard safety features include six airbags, Active Stability and Traction Control (ASTC) and high intensity discharge headlamps with automatic levelling. Convenience and comfort features include a rear-view camera, park distance control, glass sunroof, multi-function steering wheel with remote controls for the audio system and cruise control.
There are also heated seats for driver and front passenger, Bluetooth with hands-free voice-control, as well as an easy-to-read central information system with multiple read-outs, including a compass, altimeter and barometer.
