Off-roaders given a cup of concrete

WITH Toyota in its sights, Mitsubishi has boosted the towing credentials of its off-roaders.

Thanks to enhanced engineering, Mitsubishi's Pajero, Challenger and Triton offer more towing capacity.

The Japanese carmaker is trumpeting top end performance, beating market leader Toyota Prado and Hilux.

Mitsubishi's Triton Single Cab and Dual Cab models and Challenger have increased their towing capacity to three tonnes and their tow ball download has been increased to 300kg.

These increases were made following structural, engine and transmission cooling and stability assessments and confirmation.

The Pajero has a maximum towing capacity of three tonnes and a maximum tow ball download of 180kg. However, when towing at 2500kg or less – as is the norm in most towing scenarios – the maximum tow ball download increases to 250kg.

The three vehicles all come with a comprehensive five year/130,000 whole vehicle warranty.
