PERFORMANCEAT YOUR COMMAND

Mitsubishi'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.

AWC (ALL WHEEL CONTROL)

More than a technology, All Wheel Control is our guiding philosophy. Incorporating an array of innovative systems into an integrated performance and control network, AWC delivers precise traction, power and slip control for each wheel independently to ensure complete driver control even in extreme handling conditions.
Monocoque Body with Built-in Ladder Frame
They say that superior off-road handling capability could only come at the expense of on-road smoothness. They have obviously never driven Pajero/Montero. By incorporating a lightweight and highly rigid monocoque body with a built-in ladder frame that provides added resistance to torsion and flexing and fixing them atop a dynamic independent suspension, Pajero/Montero achieves an unprecedented combination of all-terrain control and luxury-sedan comfort. For added durability, Pajero/Montero now makes more extensive use of galvanized steel body panels, while the new aluminum hood panel reduces weight for better handling.

Front Midship Layout
The engine on Pajero/Montero has been shifted back closer to the center of the vehicle. This places more weight between the axles to greatly improve handling and control. In addition, the new engine position allows a better approach angle and provides added crumple zone protection in the event of an accident.


Independent Suspension
Pajero/Montero’s rally-proven all-wheel independent suspension gives drivers confident, predictable handling in even the most unpredictable road conditions. The front double-wishbone and rear multi-link suspensions use coil springs to provide quick and natural response, especially when cornering.

Suspension Travel
The independent suspension, coil springs and monocoque body all work together to provide a greater degree of suspension travel. The result is impressive road-handling and greater stability even over the roughest off-road conditions.

SUPER SELECT 4WD II (SS4 II)

Pajero/Montero's advanced SS4 II lets you shift between 2H, 4H and 4HLc modes at speeds of up to 100km/h, providing on-demand control for highway performance or off-road traction whenever you need it.

Note: Super Select 4WD II lets you shift between 2H, 4H and 4HLc modes at speeds up to 100 km/h. Vehicle must be stopped when switching between 4HLc and 4LLc. Please see the owner’s manual for additional information.

  • 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/Montero is capable of. Maximized low-end torque pulls you through even the roughest terrain, stickiest mud and deepest snow.

ENGINE / TRANSMISSION

  • 3.8L 24-valve V6 SOHC MIVEC
    Pajero/Montero's 3.8-liter engine puts an incredible 250PS at your command ensuring that you’ll never be short on power. The 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.
  • 3.2L 16-valve DOHC COMMON RAIL DI-D
    The 3.2-liter DI-D (Direct Injection Diesel) engine provides superior torque, especially at low and mid rev ranges. The Common Rail injection system electronically controls fuel intake to deliver precisely the right amount to each cylinder, while the direct injection system enables far more efficient combustion for better fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.

    INVECS-II AT
    INVECS-II AT provides a smoother, more active driving feel while also improving fuel efficiency. It has been programmed with optimized shift patterns for a wide range of road conditions. Drivers may also select the D-Range setting, which duplicates the shift timing of an average driver for a natural driving feel that reduces fuel consumption.
    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.
