Remember the teaser pic of the new Mitsubishi Pajero/Montero/Shogun we brought you a couple of weeks ago?

Well, Nihon Car & Bike has shots up that pretty much explode the mystery. Taken from a japanese car mag named Driven, they show the facelifted SUV in and out and in both 2-door and 4-door trim. The new front end of the Pajero is a huge improvement over our current Montero with its smooth, flush face; integrated bumper bars; and what looks to be a serious skid plate on the two-door model. Of course, we likely won't get the two-door model in the U.S., but the four-door gets the same clean front end and a third row of seating with the tallest headrests ever incorporated in a production vehicle. The interior, likewise, has been simplified compared with the tangled mess of technology found on the current model.

We'll get to see the new Pajero up close and personal in Paris, so these pics we'll have to sate your apetite until then.
