Introduced in the early ’80s, the Mitsubishi Pajero soon became popular in Europe, the Middle East and America. It was a simple but effective off-road SUV that came in many varieties and with a couple of powerful engines. The construction of the original Pajero was basic with a ladder chassis and leaf spring suspension in the back. But its off-road performance was more than good.
Over the years, they upgraded the Pajero to a more luxurious machine, and it even went racing. In the late ’90s, they introduced the Pajero Pinin as a smaller, more affordable version of the original Pajero. However, with the introduction of European SUVs in that class and market, the popularity of the Pajero started to decline.
