Prado is bit mushier. Montero has much better performance. Economy will be almost the same. 
 

120 prado looks outdated. Its feeling its age. The Montero is still fresh. And since they stopped making the Montero, you will have the last model (big suv people in SL ,like to remind people if they drive an earlier model.)

Diesel 3200 cc,  2800 cc 

Gasoline  3000 cc

 

Montero  GLX, GLS

Pajero -GR, EXCEED, SUPER EXCEED

 

Obviously the diesel is economical... but don't expect the figures of an aqua or an alto..  pajero is better equipped though

I have an idea about gls and glx packages ...

If you don't mind how about 3200 and 2800 ones..

2800 cc- most are with manual transmission...( GL package).... YOM 2013 up.. but few units came with auto... YOM 2008-2010 like... manual ones are extremely basic.. but economical,may be .... compared to it's auto counterparts 

Whatever you buy.. go for something well maintained..

And most cars came after 2013 (GLX) were dressed up locally... few by the agents...

Well..the Pajero and Prado are in a completely different segment than the Sorento. The Sorento is a crossover whilst the other two are proper midsized off-roaders (well..atleast pavement princess versions of platform with proper off-road cred).

The Pajero even though the year of manufacture is newer is a rather old platform...so much so that platform wise the Pajero and the Prado you are looking at are pretty much from the same era. Drivability wise....the Pajero with a unibody construction is much easier and better to drive on road whilst the Prado is a bit truck like. WHen driving on gravel like roads and such they both hide the jitteryness quite well but with different characteristics...the Prado uses softer suspension and ladder to frame joints to absorb it whilst the Pajero distrbutes it across the body and suspension....so in the cabin; one feels like you have a jack hammer hitting on your rear end...the other feels like you are in a tin can with a washing machine attached next to it :) So it will be a matter of preference...

Off-road the Prado is a lot more confidence inspiring than the Pajero.

The Pajero...just like allother Mitsubishis have a more plasticy feel to it than the Prado...but the layut of the Pajero dash feels more offroad-like and modern than that of the Prado grades. Seats wise...for me it was interesting...the Pajero had good upper body support in the front seats but the lower seat (where you actually sit) was too bench-like. The Prado was the opposite to that...the front seats (and the back) had good lower support but the upper body seat was not good....it made you feel like you were laying against a balloon ball that was pushing you outward. The Pajero rear seats were all-around benchlike...you can live with both...it is just those little things.

With the Pajero I believe you get a lot more for the same amount of money...an equal priced Prado might be higher in mileage, older and/or have lesser features.

So the choice is really up to you...have you test driven any ?

V6 is gasoline.... it's called v93....  3000cc

V98 is diesel 3200 CC 

Both models, trim levels GLX and GLS in case of montero..

 

For pajero GR, EXCEED and Super EXCEED 

 

Diesel 2800 cc is V96... it comes as GL , a  manual 10 seater van... its auto counterpart's trim code, I m not sure
