Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Still Truckin’ With A Subtle Refresh For 2024

The ladder-frame SUV receives subtle visual enhancements and a few updates within the cabin

 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Still Truckin’ With A Subtle Refresh For 2024

  • The 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport receives a minor facelift with revised exterior styling and a few interior updates.
  • This is likely the last update before a complete redesign expected in 2025.
  • The Pajero Sport is now exclusively all-wheel drive in the Australian market, while Thailand gets a new diesel.

Mitsubishi held off on a full redesign for its Pajero Sport SUV, following the recent introduction of the all-new Triton / L200 pickup. However, to bridge the gap until the next generation arrives in 2025, they’ve given the existing Pajero Sport a subtle facelift with some minor exterior and interior tweaks.

The 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport looks quite familiar, but a closer look reveals the new styling details. These include a redesigned grille insert with a new honeycomb pattern on the center intake and a different lower bumper garnish. Mitsubishi also introduced a new set of 18-inch wheels and added a new Blade Silver color option, also available with the Triton.

In addition, the flagship Pajero Sport GSR gains a heavier dose of black exterior trim (mirrors, door handles, tailgate handle), and a new Graphite Grey color option combined with a black roof. Finally, the black extensions of the headlights, previously exclusive to the GSR, are now standard in the entire range.

The highlight inside is the new three-spoke steering wheel, borrowed from the Triton pickup. The high-spec Exceed and GSR also benefit from new graphics for the 8-inch digital instrument cluster. The GSR features a quilted two-tone burgundy and black synthetic leather upholstery, creating a more luxurious environment, combined with dark titanium inserts. As for the entry-level GLX, it now comes standard with auto headlights and wipers.

Note that the above information is for the AU-spec models, as in Thailand the high-spec Elite Edition trim of the Pajero Sport has an extra fold-down 12.1-inch screen for the rear passengers.

In the Australian market, the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is fitted with the same 2.4-liter turbodiesel engine producing 178 hp (133 kW / 181 PS) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. However, in Thailand, the model gains the newer 2.4-liter turbodiesel from the Triton, which makes slightly more power, at 181 hp (135 kW / 184 PS). In Australia, the RWD trims have been discontinued, meaning that the Pajero Sport is exclusively available in 4WD form with the eight-speed automatic transmission.

Pricing for the 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero in Australia ranges from AU$ 51,540 (US$ 33,428) for the entry-level five-seater GLX, and goes all the way up to AU$ 64,840 (US$ 42,055) for the seven-seater flagship GSR trim. In Thailand, the model is priced between 1,389,000-1,579,000 THB ($37,391-42,506). Rivals include the Toyota Fortuner and the Isuzu MU-X truck-based SUVs.

The third-gen Mitsubishi Pajero was originally introduced in 2015, with a comprehensive facelift following in 2019. The second and milder update for 2024 will most likely be the last, as an all-new generation is rumored to be under development.
