    Unpleasant news for me.

    I have always like the Pajero, with the blister fender model and the latest models my favorites.

    I always thought that when I grow up and have a real job, that I would treat myself to a Pajero.

    The problem is that I would have to dispose of my Colt ClubCab; and after twenty years of ownership it is part of my family.

    Won't happen, but imagine a new Shorty designed to compete with the FJ but with frugal diesel power...

    I have read somewhere that the Pajero would use Patrol underpinnings. Saw an article that says the Y62 Patrol is also on short notice. The reason why the Pajero is canned? Maybe.

    The Y62 hasn't been a success, as someone wrote on here in some other thread, maybe it was meant for the Dubai sheiks to play around with...I really don't see that the rest world needs such a vehicle.

    So it might as well join the big dealership in the sky, where the Merc Pick-up also rests.

    But the Pajero...that's sad. The 4D56, the 2.5s one, those were nice. Not a fan of the 2.8...the ones that I still occasionally come across all chug out black smoke...

    I was fortunate to be able to keep my 3.2 Triton Clubcab when I bought our second hand 3.2 Paj which like you have always thought "when I grow up one day" it will be on the cards.

    Now more than 35 years as it is an oldish clip. Four generations of the Pajero and their owners talking about their cars. Apologies, I know I have posted this in another thread, or two.

    I heard that Mitsubishi are pulling out of the UK and Europe markets...basically going to sell off their stock and close the branches.

    The target markets are now southern hemisphere....... and Africa nogal......hope that this will make pricing more attractive.

    Sad but true. They have to scale down due to a decrease in profit, partly due to Covid, their sales numbers however were slowly increasing worldwide (1.4 million units in 2019) but that was not enough.

    I can just hear AStPW's "I told you so's". Solid vehicles and sad to see them go in a limited sector of the market.

    Jeep amalgamated with Fiat, and that did not add to the image of Jeep. Now Mitshu has done the same.

    I was thinking the same. I was never aware of the saga between him and Pajero owners until I picked up snippets about it here on the forum. Then just last night I watched 2 of his youtube videos talking about it. And wow, his hatred for Mitsubishi/owners really comes to the fore, even though he tries saying that it is not the case and he supposedly just aired his honest opinion

    I predict the Shorty's out there will become expensive collectors items.....

    You are clearly only thinking in ZA market.

    I'm sure nissan have hit all their global sales target and even exceeded with the Y62. It's the middle East and Russia that they are concerned with.

    Very unlikely. Why?

    The Defender 90 is here full swing. Why collect a pajero shorty?

    People buy the Pajero and Defender for totally different reasons.

    Most Pajero's are auto and very easy to live with on a daily basis. You get a much better 50/50 (road/off-road) vehicle with a Pajero. If you really want to you can actually do 180 on an open road, the Defender tops out at 140 on a down hill with the wind at its back.

    The Defender is more like a 20/80 vehicle, I've driven Defenders before and I can't see myself driving one in the city every day. Off the beaten track is where the Defender shines.

    Horses for courses.

    As Tom mentioned, horses for courses. I don't want a Defender 90, even for free but I will buy a shorty 3.2 Paj, without even seeing it.

    EDIT: Talking about shorties, I don't want a Prado either. Had the unfortunate experience of having to pilot my aunt's KZTE one in Moz for a few days with passengers, which was no fun for anyone.

    I'm talking about the 2020 Defender 90

    Expensive, yes, but the context was the Paj shorty being a collector's item hence would be expensive if really in that state.

    So why not get a 2020 defender 90 then..

    Iíd be interested to know how many of the new facelifts Y62ís have been sold. There are three in the 3x3 km area I stay in.

    He said "collectors item". Sad to say but I reckon the new Defender 90, and 110 for that matter, is going the D3 and D4 route - nice to have under a plan but it ain't gonna be no collectors item.
