The fourth generation of the famous Mitsubishi Pajero SUV has been in existence since 2006. It is common for body-on-frame SUVs to linger on the conveyor as long as possible. However, the company has decided to stop producing the Pajero.

This year, serial production of the Mitsubishi Pajero will stop. The demand for the model brings its production closer to the point of unprofitability. So, it is decided to stop producing the morally and technically outdated model. Nothing is known about the direct heir. But we decided to recall the Mitsubishi GC-PHEV concept, which clearly hinted at a huge SUV. Is it the next Mitsubishi Pajero?

It is worth noting that nowadays, the fashion for SUVs in retro style has flourished as never before. The Suzuki Jimny, Jeep Wrangler, Land Rover Defender, Mercedes G-Class and 2021 Ford Bronco are all commercially successful projects.

It seemed that electric vehicles could finally conquer the market at the beginning of the XXI century. However, thanks to their charisma and non-trivial abilities, cool-looking SUVs have gained a completely new level of popularity. Needless to say, it is just the perfect time for a stylish Mitsubishi SUV.

Surely, the company is studying the prospects of a successor. To reduce development costs and optimize the production process, the new Mitsubishi Pajero can be built on the platform and units of the Nissan Patrol, which underwent an upgrade in 2019. In this case, the new Pajero will be larger in comparison with the current model and will move to the next class. But if it helps the legendary name survive, we accept it all. But we first need to wait for the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander.
