The second-gen model received a larger body which also included choices between a metal or canvas top as well as a semi high roof and high roof wagon. Both the short- and long-wheelbase models grew in size and the available engines also received power upgrades. The Pajero Evolution, which came in '97, was developed specifically to meet the T3 Class requirements for the Paris-Dakar Rally. Like Dodge
did with the first-gen Pajero (called the Raider), Hyundai
also sold a rebadged version of the Pajero, but only in South Korea and a few European countries.
