In case that you are not from the US, there are high chances that you will not know for 2018 Mitsubishi Montero at all, or even for the name Montero. But, if we tell you that behind the name Montero stands the popular Pajero, widely known in Europe, mostly among the buyers from 80’s and 90’s when it had high popularity. In case that you have lived in the UK, and then you probably know for Mitsubishi Shogun, that also had great selling during the 80’s. All of these models are actually the same car, with only a few differences and redesigning since the first model has been released in 1983 to 2006 when manufacturer stopped with producing without clear explanation.
The new 2018 Mitsubishi Montero represents a perfect combination of tradition, so old buyers will recognize their model, and many improvements, collected in new GG-PHEV platform, that we were able to see on 2014 Geneva Auto Show. This platform is a combination of lightweight materials and larger towing capacity that made this car even more practical and attractive. The front end has recognizable shape and design, with wide grids and modern LED lights beside the wide air intake on the bottom. The rear end has vertically positioned modern lights. The vehicle is as modern as traditional, together with practical and fast enough even for the most demanded buyers.
As the manufacturer said, 2018 Mitsubishi Montero should be a car mostly for off-road driving, so we usually do not expect highly elegant and comfortable cabin in those cars. According to reviews, this car still has an acceptable level of comfort and elegance. The wide and modern dashboard has details in chrome, which are seen on doors and steering wheel, too. There is large 7-inch touchscreen in the middle of it and a perfect buttons layout positioned to not distract the driver. The center cluster is slightly slanted to the right so the driver has more space. The car has high-quality equipment and technology, too.
The base model of 2018 Mitsubishi Montero should be offered with classic 6-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine and 4-cylinder petrol engine in combination with an electric unit, as a hybrid version. Those engines have proved their fuel economy, but also high levels of environment protections thanks to the combination with electric engines. A hybrid engine measures 20 miles per charging which is a great number in this class.
