The Mitsubishi Pajero is a sport utility vehicle manufactured by Mitsubishi Motors, introduced in 1982. It was named after Leopardus pajeros, the Pampas cat which is native to the Patagonia plateau region of southern Argentina. However alternative names have been used for many markets overseas. It is known as the Mitsubishi Montero (meaning "mountain hunter") in Spain, the Americas (except Brazil), and India, and as the Mitsubishi Shogun in the United Kingdom.
Initially, it was a three-door, short-wheelbase model available with a metal or canvas top and three different engines options, although more were gradually added, ending with a 3-litre V6 on top of the range.
The short wheelbase model is not available in North America, where the Montero is the only SUV in Mitsubishi's lineup with standard four-wheel drive. Discontinued in the United States in 2006, the vehicle continues to be sold in the rest of the world in its fourth-generation iteration.
