The Mitsubishi Montero is the brand’s famous full-size SUV sold in America, Spain, and the Philippines. In the other markets, it is also known as the Mitsubishi Pajero. However, this model hasn’t been present on the American market for quite some time because of the slow sales. However, according to the newest reports, it seems that the Company might bring it back. Although it is not yet confirmed, we are hoping to see the all-new 2019 Mitsubishi Montero.
The newest Montero is expected to be developed in cooperation between the Renault Nissan and Mitsubishi Alliance. Since the demand for the SUVs is keep getting stronger, it seems natural that this is going to be the right move for the Company. As well, in order to keep it competitive, they will most likely equip it with a hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or an electric powertrain in addition to the standard engines. The exterior styling will be surely refreshed with some new details and it could also get new exterior colors. The materials inside the cabin will be improved as well and the technology also.
The toughest rivals of the new Montero will be Honda Pilot, Land Rover Discovery, and Ford Explorer.

Under the hood of the 2019 Mitsubishi Montero will be found several types of engines and it will depend on the market. The base is expected to be a 6 cylinder unit which will able to make 300 horses. As well, the hybrid engine has also been announced but it probably won’t be available for all markets. It will most likely combine a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine and an electric motor of 60 kWh. However, the exact output is not yet known.

Like the Pajero model, the newest Montero should ride on the 17-inch alloy wheels.

As before, it will be able to welcome up to seven passengers. On the center of the dashboard, it will be placed an upgraded screen with the infotainment system. An audio system so as the navigation will be updated also.
