The horsepower is a something that most of drivers take into account at first when buying a car. In this case it is the Ford Expedition II 4.6 i V8 16V 235HP automatic that has by 38 percent more horsepower in relation to the Mitsubishi. Therefore the Ford will achieve higher top speed. With more horsepower the Ford should also give seemingly better flexiblility in specific speeds.
The Ford has 141 Nm more torque than the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I. Although most of people do not attach importance the maximum torque when buying a automobile, it describes the best how fast a vehicle is speeding up. When it comes to compared vehicles the difference is substantial thus the Ford Expedition II will deliver you better feeling of driving.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A small difference in the amount of 10 percent shows that the Mitsubishi is slightly beaten in this confrontation. In the „large 4x4 ” segment, to which the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4 is assigned, the average acceleration amounts to 10.5 s and is by 2.3 s faster than acceleration of Mitsubishi’s vehicle.
The top speed possible to be reached by the Ford Expedition II is greater than of the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4 by 15 km/h, which allows the Ford Expedition II to cover quicker large stretches of highway. The difference at the level of 9 % is small and will be negligible in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The RMP at which the maximum torque is produced tells us how fast an engine achieves its full performance with growth in rmp. The lower revolutions or the longer range at which the torque is the highest, the more the engine is flexible and a sensation of acceleration should be felt faster.
The width of the vehicle influences directly on passanger's inner room as well as driving stability. The Ford Expedition II is 305 millimeters wider when compared to the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4. It is clearly perceptible by those sitting in front, who have more room for their elbows.
Ford Expedition II 4.6 i V8 16V 235HP automatic has 11 % longer wheelbase in comparison to the Mitsubishi. A longer wheelbase gives more stable and comfortable ride, especially when driving fast. It also provides more storage space. However, vehicles having a longer wheelbase are not as maneuverable as those with a shorter wheelbase.
The Ford Expedition II has 1,631 cc bigger engine capacity in comparison to the Mitsubishi. The difference is relatively big. For this reason the Ford Expedition II 4.6 i V8 16V 235HP automatic should accelerate faster and be able to achieve higher maximum speed. On the other hand bigger engine capacity usually equals worst fuel economy.
The Ford Expedition II is 13 % longer in comparison to the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4. Long vehicles have more interior space and also provide more storage space. While the Ford Expedition II seems to be better for families or persons who value convenient driving that make them feel fresh and relaxed upon arriving, the Mitsubishi may appeal to city drivers as it will not make problems with parking and will be easier for turning in narrow streets.
Model release date
Manufacture of the older car began much more earlier than its competitor thus we may expect that this car has significantly less modern technologies applied.
If you are a tall driver or you carry in the trunk thinks of large dimensions, the Ford Expedition II, which is by 251 mm higher than the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4, is appropriate option for you. However, compared cars do not differ much in its height and it should not be much perceptible.
