Mitsubishi was one of the leaders in crossover industry for years. Recently, they fell in pecking order, especially on main market for all carmakers. North American buyers turned to other companies and models, which increased their offer. Nevertheless, this should change very soon. For upcoming season, Japanese carmaker is preparing new model. This is 2018 Mitsubishi Montero, and according to first sketches and spy photos, it will be very attractive. Furthermore, we found out that many parts will be shared with new Outlander. However, designers are developing unique parts, only for this crossover.
2018 Mitsubishi Montero engine
Company officials spoke about upcoming vehicle, and unveiled part of information about it. But, it is not enough for fans which wait eagerly for new SUV. According to these, two engine types are certain for 2018 Mitsubishi Montero. Base units are getting power from naturally-aspirated V6. But, displacement of this drivetrain is unknown. Same is for other engine, a 4-cylinder unit. We found out that powertrain is using petrol as its fuel, as well as turbocharger. However, cost of this boost is higher consumption. Combined, predicted fuel economy is around 20 mpg. Company doesn’t plan to launch diesel and hybrid versions, according to current information. A CVT or 6-speed automatic are options for transmission system.

Main highlights of this crossover are capability to ride on any kinds of terrain, and towing. The 2018 Mitsubishi Montero can carry a lot of cargo, and for upcoming model, storage is increased. Not only that, but also comfort. Comfortable seats are waiting for passengers. However, leather upholstery is making cabin more elegant. Furthermore, infotainment and safety are on higher level.

Adjustable driver seat and climate control raise overall impression to highest level.
