The new version is based on the current 2010 model year Mitsubishi Pajero GLX but is fitted with, among other things, tinted windows, colour coded door handles, a chrome grille and silver roof rails. The new four-wheel drive also comes with Mitsubishi’s Multi Communication System with voice-activated navigation controls.

Mitsubishi’s MMCS interface also incorporates a 850-watt Rockford Acoustic Design, 12-speaker sound system, with reversing sensors and a rear-mounted camera.

Like the Pajero GLX, the Platinum Edition is also available in 3.8-litre petrol engine form and 3.2-litre diesel form. Masahiko Takahashi, Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited CEO, said about the release in a recent report,

“We are pleased to bring back the popular Platinum Edition of the Pajero. Four-wheel drive enthusiasts will appreciate its solid on and off-road power, as well as, the addition of a number of stylish and functional interior and exterior features as standard fitments.”

The new Pajero Platinum Edition also comes with a range of safety features including Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution bodywork – using a monocoque structure, ABS with electronic brake distribution, dual front airbags, automatic wipers and headlights.

Mitsubishi is also offering the new Pajero Platinum Edition with a 10 year/160,000km drivetrain warranty, and a five year/130,000km new car warranty. Prices start at $58,290, excluding on-road costs.
