Protect Your Most Valuable Cargo

All Challenger model are equipped with the latest in Supplementary Restraint System (SRS) technology designed to protect you and your family in the event of a collision. Challenger has a total of six airbags - two front passenger, two front passenger side and two full length curtain airbags.

Reverse Camera & Parking Sensors

All Challenger models are fitted with a reverse camera displaying the rear field of view of your car on your display audio or MMCS system. The reverse camera is automatically engaged when reverse gear is selected and in conjunction with the standard reverse park assist sensor, you can be confident is all reversing situations.

Multi-mode Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)

Allows you to manoeuvre around objects under heavy braking conditions. Challenger’s intelligent 4-channel, 4-sensor braking system works in conjunction with the drive mode to monitor different wheel speeds and activate brakes to individual wheels when required to deliver superior control.

Active Traction Control (ATC)

Helps you maintain traction on the most slippery or rugged of surfaces. This intelligent system automatically controls the engine output, so driving wheels are prevented from spinning. Sensing loss of traction in an independent wheel, it applies braking force to that wheel and sends extra power and torque to other wheels with traction to keep you moving.

Active Stability Control (ASC)

Maintains stability and prevents loss of control when cornering, automatically recognizing under-steer and over-steer and applying braking force to the diagonal wheel to keep you online through corners.

Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)

This technology reduces stopping distances by detecting passenger or heavier loads and automatically increases rear-braking force.

RISE Safety

The Mitsubishi Reinforced Impact safety Evolution (RISE) design combines an energy absorbing front section with a strong, rigid occupant cell to provide outstanding family protection in the event of an accident. The RISE body is coupled with a rigid ladder frame, side impact bars, and collision absorbing joints.

Power & Performance

2.5L Common Rail Hi Power Turbo Diesel with VGT

An enhanced variable geometry turbocharger (VGT) works to optimize the turbine flow rate in order to achieve high torque at low speeds and maximize power at high speeds. The result is excellent emission control, fuel efficiency and high engine power for superior performance. The 2.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine yields next generation quietness, smoothness and fuel efficiency, taking you further for less without compromise. An impressive 131kW of power and 400Nm of torque for the manual and 350Nm for the automatic.

5 Speed Sports Mode Automatic & Paddle Shifts

Sports Mode allows you to enjoy the ease and comfort of an automatic, with the option of then switching to the versatility and control of a 5 speed manual without the use of a clutch pedal. The clutch free operation reduces the rev and torque loss usually associated with engaging gears, meaning you can maintain momentum in off-road situations. Combined with paddle shifts behind Challenger’s steering wheel, you can make quick gear changes without your hands leaving the wheel.

3 Tonne Towing

Challenger is equipped with a powerful 3,000kg towing capacity. The turbo diesel engine and full-time 4WD capability will make towing the boat, caravan or trailer a breeze.

Rear Differential Lock

The Rear Differential Lock is useful for negotiating low traction surfaces such as sand, mud, snow-covered or rocky surfaces or boat ramps. It locks the rear differential, which means that both rear wheels have an equal torque split, regardless of whether either wheel has traction – meaning maximum possible traction in different situations.

Super Select 4WD

Challenger inherits all the 4WD-handling heritage from a long line of Mitsubishi rally champions. Superior to most 4WD systems the Challenger's Super Select 4WD offer full time 4WD with the option of four driving (2H, 4H, 4HLC, 4LLC). The Super Select 4WD system also offers the benefit of on-the-fly shifts from 2WD to 4WD high range at speeds of up to 100km/h.

2H (2WD High Range)

Whether you're cruising down the highway or just going across town, 2H mode shifts you into rear-wheel drive for smooth, quiet, fuel-efficient performance.

4H (Full Time 4WD)

When the weather turns bad and the road gets rough, get added traction in 4H mode. This has the flexibility of a centre-differential with viscous coupling unit, providing excellent traction in unpredictable road conditions or on volatile surfaces.

4HLC (4WD high range with locked centre differential)

Keeping you on track in rugged or slippery conditions, 4HLC distributes power equally to all four wheels to meet off-road challenges with a steady sense of control.

4LLC (4WD low range with locked centre differential)

Switch to 4LLC when you need all the tractor-like crawling power your Mitsubishi 4WD is capable of. Maximised low-end torque pulls you through even the roughest terrain, stickiest mud and deepest snow.
