At the recently hosted family day held at Al Mara land in Muscat, General Automotive Company, the official dealers for Mitsubishi in Oman, showcased not just the towing capability but also its reliability by using it to haul three carriages containing 80 passengers in a first of its kind ‘Pajero Train’. The Pajero Train kept people entertained throughout the day by taking families on relaxing rides around the park.
Commenting on towing performance of the legendary Pajero, Mark Tomlinson, General Manager of General Automotive Company, said, “The Pajero really is legendary, here in Oman and around the world, and that status is well earned with all the technology, power and four-wheel-drive capabilities on offer. As a showcase of its torque and reliability, we had the ‘Pajero Train’ pull a host of carriages filled with people around the park throughout the evening. By the end of the even the Pajero had completed over 300 rounds nonstop, each time pulling carriages filled with close to 80 people. Furthermore, as a testament to its reliability, this was done with a single vehicle only.”
The ‘Pajero Train’ was extremely well received by the families that visited the park with many riding the train multiple times. Commenting on her experience of the ride Ronak Bhatt said, “The ride was a lot of fun and we rode it over and over again.”
For some adults, it even took them back to their childhood days, “The Pajero Train brought back good old memories of school excursions when we classmates got a chance to ride in one of those old, mini-diesel engines, puffing black smoke,” said Brian Costello Peiries.
The Mitsubishi Pajero epitomises a unique blend of on and off-road capability, generous standard equipment levels, comfort, space and luxury at a highly competitive pricing. With each new generation, the Pajero continues to add greater power and torque and better economy while at the same time continue to offer the same blend of rugged on and off-road capability combined with significantly improved comfort.
The Pajero comes with a choice of two powerful, efficient engines – a 3.8L or 3.5L V6; Regardless of the choice, every Pajero appeals to drivers who demand a vehicle that is immensely reliable and can tackle the toughest and most inhospitable of terrains yet delivers a thoroughly composed road drive and class-leading towing capabilities.
Reflecting on its performance, another visitor, Shyla Ivan said, “It was wonderful, we had the most fun riding on it. I was really amazed at how it carried so many people at once. It was really great and powerful.”
