mod­els will be equipped with Mit­subishi’s new eight­speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion. Su­per-Se­lect II-4 4WD ver­sions also have low-range gear­ing, as you’d ex­pect in this neck of the SUV woods.

The new Pa­jero Sport rides on a lad­der frame chas­sis and dou­ble wish­bone in­de­pen­dent front sus­pen­sion, with a three­link coil-sprung set-up do­ing ser­vice at the back.

De­pend­ing on how it’s specced, the SUV weighs around 2100kg and has a braked tow­ing ca­pac­ity of 3100kg.

Mit­subishi SA says the ve­hi­cle will come with var­i­ous new lux­ury fea­tures, but has not yet re­vealed what any of these are, ex­cept to say that it will only be of­fered in high-spec­i­fi­ca­tion guise.

How­ever, it’s al­most cer­tain that it’ll of­fer the 17.8cm touch­screen in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem of­fered in over­seas mar­kets.

Abroad, the SUV is also of­fered with safety fea­tures such as Trailer Sta­bil­ity As­sist, For­ward Col­li­sion Mit­i­ga­tion (with auto-brak­ing) and Blind Spot Warn­ing, while also of­fer­ing the con­ve­nience of Adap­tive Cruise Con­trol and Mit­subishi’s Multi Around Mon­i­tor.

More in­for­ma­tion on the lo­cal model will be re­leased around launch time in Septem­ber.
