Mitsubishi has published a teaser video for the upcoming 2016 Pajero Sport / Challenger.

The attached clip is a bit futile taking into account at the beginning of this week a pre-production unit was caught on camera while shooting an ad. It’s based on the latest Triton / L200 pickup truck and comes with a more upscale front end inspired by the revised Outlander combined with a rather distinctive rear end in the same vein as last year’s GR-HEV concept .

Technical specifications are not available at this point, but it’s safe to say it will just about the same array of engines as its pickup sibling, so expect to find a bunch of 2.4- and 2.5-liter turbodiesels and a normally aspirated 2.4-liter gasoline engine. The availability of these units will depend on region and output will vary from 128 PS and 194 Nm to 181 PS and 430 Nm of torque.

A full reveal is set for August 1 at the 2015 Bangkok International Grand Motor Sale in Thailand, with sales to commence before the end of this year.
