The Japanese manufacturer is currently in the process of updating its entire lineup, which will also include body-on-frame vehicles. We expect to see the new generation L200/Triton and the 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport in the coming year. We know that the SUV’s capable design will change significantly.
We know at this point that the new model will be significantly different from the current generation. It has been in existence since 2015. The overall layout of the 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport won’t change. However, it will be riding on a new platform with many new parts. This could include the new powertrain. We expect new styling and a more luxurious cabin with lots of new techs.
Crossovers are a popular choice in North America and Europe. The situation is a little different in Australia and Southeast Asia where buyers are still searching for simple SUVs like old-style truck-based vehicles that use a body-on-frame platform. The 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, one of many models of this type, is still available. It was based on the Mitsubishi L200/Triton pickup and competes in mid-size SUVs. Some of its key competitors include Ford Everest, Toyota Fortuner, and Ford Everest. The 2023 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will likely be a familiar vehicle with its design and characteristics.
We can still count on an authentic SUV to offer many things, even though it has not been modified since 2015. It is loved for its rugged off-road abilities and sharp nature. The engines are extremely resourceful and the suspension setup offers a very good on-road ride. Pajero Sport’s cabin is spacious, comfortable, and practical. We should also expect innovation at the normal time of the year, in the last quarter of 2022.
2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Design
It will be a complete redesign, and we know that it will bring about some significant changes. This covers all aspects of design, starting with the new platform. The 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will be switching to the F-Alpha platform from Nissan, just like the new L200/Triton. This will provide many benefits, especially in terms of ride quality.
New possibilities will be possible with the new platform. It will be possible to use other engines, and some new technologies in drive-assistance technology, among others. Additional upgrades will be made to the suspension, including the new independent rear suspension.
We expect the new generation to improve ride quality, but not compromise on off-road capability. You can count on many off-road upgrades such as locking differentials, low-range gearing, and skid plates.
A new generation will bring new aesthetics. The 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is expected to have a new design, which will make it more attractive. We don’t know much about the SUV, but we believe it will be in the same design language as the Outlander and Eclipse Cross crossovers. The model’s BoF nature will ensure that the exterior design is bolder and more rugged.
This does not refer to the front-end design but rather the overall shape. We expect the new generation to have more muscle on the sides, but we are not expecting any major changes in terms of dimensions. As with the other measurements, the wheelbase should be fairly similar. The Pajero Sport is a mid-size SUV with modest dimensions. However, its primary purpose is to deliver excellent off-road performance.
We are not only looking at new exterior aesthetics but also new interior aesthetics. The cabin as it is now doesn’t seem very appealing. The dashboard design and materials don’t appeal to me. It’s all about function, which is why the current cabin doesn’t look particularly appealing. The new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport 2024 will be functional, but we expect it to have nicer aesthetics and more advanced materials. We expect new tech features such as a new infotainment and connectivity system.
We shouldn’t expect any more surprises inside the car, considering that the exterior dimensions are likely to remain the same or very close. The three-row configuration of seats will be the same, although the third row is quite narrow. The first two rows, however, are quite spacious and comfortable. Additionally, the cargo area should be adequate for the class.
New engine options are available with the new platform. Many sources suggest that the current turbodiesel 2.4-liter could be replaced. This engine has a maximum output of 176 horsepower and 400Nm torque. That’s quite impressive for an engine of this size. Renault Nissan Alliance has a more powerful unit, the 2.3-liter turbodiesel from Renault. This is what powers the current generation Navara with a maximum output of 190 HP and 450 Nm of torque. We would expect to see a brand-new transmission along with the engine.
Sources also suggest a hybrid version. According to some sources, Mitsubishi may offer a hybrid version of the truck. However, details are not yet available.
2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Release Date
Although the date for the 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is not yet known, it is likely to arrive in the second half of 2023. The new generation will compete with the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Everest, but it is not certain when.
