The Mitsubishi Pajero; is a sport utility vehicle manufactured by Mitsubishi Motors. It was named after Leopardus pajeros, thePampas 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, India, and the Americas (except Brazil), and as the Mitsubishi Shogun in the United Kingdom. In Japan, it was sold at a specific retail chain called Car Plaza. Discontinued in the United States in 2006, the vehicle continues to be sold in the rest of the world in its fourth-generation iteration. Thanks to their success, the Pajero, Montero and Shogun names were also applied to other, mechanically unrelated models, such as the Pajero Mini kei car, the Pajero Junior and Pajero iO/Pininmini SUVs, and the Mitsubishi Pajero/Montero/Shogun Sport. Main rivals are the Land Rover Discovery, Toyota Land Cruiser Prado SWB/LWB and Nissan Patrol Y61.
