The Montero is a mid-size SUV produced by Japanese manufacturer Mitsubishi. In other parts of the world it is known under the name Pajero. This model was originally introduced in 1982. During its long history, it made through several modifications. So far, we have seen four generations of it. Current model is present for a very long time. It was launched in 2006. After almost a decade of production, this model could be considered as outdated, mainly because of its visual characteristics.
