What could go wrong with naming a car after a South American wildcat? The original name for the Mitsubishi Shogun for the European market was ‘Pajero’. Derived supposedly from the latin for Pampas Cat, ‘Leopardus pajeros’.
Unfortunately, the word ‘Pajero’ doesn’t translate too well in spanish… check out the meaning for yourself if you’re curious. Nethertheless, Mitsubishi had concerns Spaniards may not want to be seen driving a ‘Pajero’. Thus, the SUV is sold as the Mitsubishi Montero in certain markets.
