Delica Space Gear

The Delica Space Gear was launched in 1994 as the fourth-generation in the Delica series, "a new-type of RV" with multi-pattern seating arrangements, a generous walkthro and extended space utility. The Gear variant name was added in the belief that customers would become attached to it as a familiar “piece of gear” for leisure and everyday purposes. The new model replaced the one-box body type of its predecessors with a layout that placed the engine in the nose and not under the front seats, giving a significant improvement in frontal impact safety. With a flat floor from the front seat wells to the luggage compartment, the interior provided a generous walkthro from front seats to the rear cabin. The second-row seats could be arranged to face each other or to face the third-row seats, while tipping up their squabs converted the rear cabin into a very roomy luggage space. The Delica Space Gear was powered by a lineup of four engines, including a 3.0L V6 and a 2.8L intercooled dieselturbo engine. Suspension was by double wishbone at the front and a 5-link with coil spring arrangement at the rear. The 4WD model used the Super Select 4WD driveline popular on the Pajero and with ample obstacle clearance angles and ride height delivered outstanding off-road performance. The Delica Truck and Delica Van series also underwent a full model change at this time.
