The 2015 Pajero is basically a facelift model that features a restyled front design and radiator grill. It has a built-in monocoque body frame that adds to the vehicle's durability. Moreover, the 2015 Pajero is fitted with LED daytime running lights and a new spare tire cover.

Inside, the vehicle is designed with a piano black center console along with accent trims. On the other hand, the Exceed and Super Exceed variants of the 2015 Pajero features a wood grain center panel.

The 2015 Pajero will be powered either by a 3.2-liter common rail turbocharged and intercooled diesel engine that delivers 190 PS with 441 Nm of torque or a 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engine that generates 178 PS and 261 Nm of torque.
