Mitsubishi Pajero 2021: Final Edition farewells long-running 4×4


The best part of two decades on the market has earned the Pajero a cult-following in Australia but Mitsubishi won’t let it won’t sail off into the sunset without a fitting goodbye.

Mitsubishi will release just 800 units of the Pajero Final Edition to see off the iconic four-wheel-drive after 16-years on sale in Australia.

While the changes remain cosmetic, the Pajero Final Edition will be offered across all grades with pricing starting at $54,990 (before on-road costs) however dealers are said to be offering significant discounts if you can find them.

Available only with seven seats, the special edition Pajero receives special Final Edition badging around the exterior along with other extras such as a bonnet protector, rear boot flap and cargo liner.

Mechanically the Pajero remains unchanged, with a 3.2L four-cylinder turbodiesel engine under the bonnet making 141kW of power and 441Nm of torque, which is fed to a five-speed torque converter automatic. 

That passes down to the Pajero’s four-wheel-drive systems with a locked centre and rear differential enabling it to effectively traverse everything from sandhills to muddy roads without much fuss.

Curiously, the Pajero slightly outmuscles its newer Pajero Sport sibling which generates 133kW/430Nm from a larger displacement engine, with both able to pull three-tonnes braked.

While the Pajero is beginning to show its age when compared to its rivals, it still features modern amenities such as a seven-inch digital display with digital radio and wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Mitsubishi has been unable to fit features such as AEB on the platform, but the Pajero still packs some safety features such as a reversing camera.

Stepping up to the mid-tier Pajero GLS and top-spec Exceed grade adds features such as parking sensors and a Rockford 12-speaker audio system. 

While cloth seats are fitted as standard, buyers can opt for synthetic leather bolsters in the GLS grade or full-leather covering in the range topping Exceed grade.  

With only 800 units of the Pajero Final Edition up for grabs at a discounted price, stocks will likely be limited but with Mitsubishi shifting around 250 standard Pajero models last month it would be safe to assume you’ll find one at your local dealership.
