Today’s Pajero is a second-generation version – the three-door never sold on our shores. Surprisingly, it even maintains the same color scheme as the Raider.

The five-door version joined it shortly thereafter and quickly became the volume model of Montero in North America. By the end of the Eighties though, the old box was due for a do-over. Mitsubishi debuted its new Pajero to the Japanese market early in 1991, then sold off the old tooling to South Korea. Suddenly, Hyundai had a new family SUV to sell! Said newly created Galloper remained in production through 2004.

Considerably reworked, almost everything was new for ’91. Larger and available with more power underhood, the Pajero proved very popular and branched out in its production. While the model’s second generation was produced in Japan between 1991 and 1999, it was produced in four other locations as well. The Philippines made some from 1993 through 2008, Columbia had their own production from 1994 to 2012, and it was produced under license in Iran from 2005 to 2007 by a company called Bahman Group. But nothing compares to China’s love for the gen two Pajero. Beginning in 1997, the Pajero was transformed into Chinese SUVs via a joint venture between Mitsubishi and various Chinese institutions. It was sold as 12 different vehicles in the Chinese market, and remained in production through December 2019, as the Changfeng Liebao Q6. Now that’s some product longevity.

There were also diesel mills with four cylinders, sized at 2.5 liters and 2.8 liters. Transmissions were of four or five speeds if automatic, or five speeds if manual.

Diesel engines and manual transmissions were no longer available in North America, and the only power underhood was a V6. Mitsubishi updated the Montero over the years, and gradually added gingerbread, power, and luxury items to bring it in line with competition like the Isuzu Trooper and more expensive Toyota Land Cruiser. The second-generation Montero lived through the 2000 model year and bowed out in the loaded Endeavor trim. The much more modern third generation took its place in 2001.

Its owner was okay paying the additional taxes on a large displacement vehicle and chose the 3.5-liter V6 and an automatic. With 42,000 miles, this one sold a couple of weeks ago for $8,100.
