    explorer: old issues such as FC(sold my 07 explorer last year after getting an everest) or ford service and reliability although did not personally experience any probs with my explorer before except for the aircon. but again the looks and the interiors of the explorer are so much more refined that FC concerns are easily overlooked. am just thinking that by late next year, a new look/model explorer will come out so it will become outdated as against the newer model. while with the pajero, this wont happen..
    if it would matter, we currently have 3 cars: e90, mirage g4, 16 everest.. probably sell the everest as 2suvs will be tight for our 3 car garage. dont want to parkanymore on the street like what happened before parang bilis mag fade ng paint.

    pardon the lengthy post but have been thinking about this since oct and i cant seem to decide. thanks in advance!
    I'd go for the Pajero, especially now that it has the VGT 4M41. This means lots of tuning potential, besides giving decent gas mileage. I don't know about you, but I like the idea of going fast but not having to think about fuel costs. 😁 The Pajero is also one of the best in holding its resale value, something to consider if this car isn't for keeps.

    Of course for sheer on-road driving enjoyment, the Explorer has it beat. So if that is your main consideration, what are you waiting for? If a new model comes out and tickles your fancy, swap it in! 😂

    mazda cx9? havent given it much thought because thinking of the resale value like i said after 6 yrs but will check it out. tnx
    i got the pajero, the previous model explorer and the ranger wildtrak 2016. can't say about the new explorers but its probably expensive to maintain.

    with my pajero and my ranger wildtrak. I love the wildtrak more coz of it's toys pero biten and 3.2L engine nyan compare to my Pajero. problem with Pajero mabigat, it's old. i assume the everest is lighter to drive than the ranger kasi multilink coil springs yan eh yun ranger leaf springs pa din

    i'd say keep your everest and get the pajero. I always like to think my Pajero is m very own Land Rover, pang - safari talaga. and it's being a considered a classic na din interms of real offroading.

    In my opinion a next gen pajero will likely happen for the asia pacific region. Im guessing 2020/21 is the release date.

    Mitsubishi will not miss on this suv trend. Even Nissan is developing its own ladder based suv for our region(different segment though)(2018)

    They just cant say it yet, otherwise their hardly selling Pajero will sell even harder.

    I think they might use the Pajero Sport chasis. And make it as big and expensive as the Prado with an engine related to the 4n15. Or they will use the QX80 platform-double wishbone front and rear from the Patrol.

    Really? My friend just got a V6 Prado late last year. Napadaan lang siya sa Toyota Pampanga because his MIL was buying a Hiace. Tapos inalok siya ng Prado and he bought it that same day.
