We've been getting lots of mail lately asking about the next Mitsubishi Pajero, a model of which we're only vaguely aware in two-door trim — mainly via European junkets and Japanese magazines — but know as the four-door Montero SUV in the states. Now, Nihon Car and Bike brings us a few pics from Japanese buff books that may show the new Pajero (and, by proxy, Montero) before its official unveiling. Neat.
