The SUV with a sturdy frame gets some minor visual upgrades and a couple of updates inside the cabin.

The 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport gets a small makeover with updated exterior looks and some interior changes.

This might be the final update before a full redesign in 2025. In Australia

the Pajero Sport is now only available with all-wheel drive, and Thailand gets a new diesel option.

Mitsubishi Revamps Pajero Sport

Mitsubishi delayed a full redesign of the Pajero Sport SUV after launching the new Triton/L200 pickup.

Instead, they’ve refreshed the current Pajero Sport with minor changes to the exterior and interior to hold over until the next generation arrives in 2025.

The 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport may seem familiar at first glance, but upon closer inspection, you’ll notice some new styling touches.

These include a revamped grille insert with a honeycomb pattern on the center intake and a revised lower bumper garnish.

Mitsubishi has also debuted a fresh set of 18-inch wheels and introduced a new Blade Silver color option, which is also offered with the Triton.

Enhanced Features and Stylish Updates

Furthermore, the top-tier Pajero Sport GSR receives increased black exterior accents (mirrors, door handles, tailgate handle), along with a fresh Graphite Grey color choice paired with a black roof.

Moreover, the black headlight extensions, once exclusive to the GSR, are now standard across the entire lineup. An impressive interior enhancement is the addition of the new three-spoke steering wheel, sourced from the Triton pickup.

Moreover, the premium Exceed and GSR variants boast refreshed graphics for the 8-inch digital instrument cluster.

In the GSR, luxury is elevated with quilted two-tone burgundy and black synthetic leather upholstery, paired with dark titanium inserts. Meanwhile, the entry-level GLX now offers auto headlights and wipers as standard features.

Please be aware that the details provided above pertain to AU-spec models. In Thailand, the high-spec Elite Edition variant of the Pajero Sport includes an additional fold-down 12.1-inch screen for rear passengers.

Market-Specific Features

In Australia, the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport comes with the identical 2.4-liter turbodiesel engine generating 178 hp (133 kW / 181 PS) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque.

Meanwhile, in Thailand, it gets an updated version of the 2.4-liter turbodiesel from the Triton, producing slightly more power at 181 hp (135 kW / 184 PS).

Additionally, in Australia, the RWD trims have been phased out, making the Pajero Sport exclusively available in 4WD configuration with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero’s prices in Australia start at AU$ 51,540 (US$ 33,428) for the base five-seater GLX and reach up to AU$ 64,840 (US$ 42,055) for the top-tier seven-seater GSR trim.

In Thailand, it’s priced between 1,389,000-1,579,000 THB ($37,391-42,506). Competitors include Toyota Fortuner and Isuzu MU-X, both truck-based SUVs.

Is this the Final Chapter for the Mitsubishi Pajero’s Third Generation?

The third generation of the Mitsubishi Pajero debuted in 2015, receiving a significant facelift in 2019.

The latest update in 2024, which is less extensive, is expected to be the final one, as rumors suggest that an entirely new generation is in the works.
