The current generation of this legendary SUV is present for a way too long, and that is the main reason why many reports suggest that the 2018 Mitsubishi Montero will come redesigned. This legend is one of the company’s best-selling products. It is in production for several decades and we have seen many versions of it so far. The current generation came in 2006. After more than a decade of production, it is quite obvious that the company needs to do something. According to the latest reports, there are some big changes to come with this model. Besides those usual changes such as new styling, engines, interior and similar sort of things, we could also see some turnarounds in terms of base design characteristic. As we already mentioned, new 2018 Montero should come next year.
2018 Mitsubishi Montero redesign
If we can trust to the internet reports, 2018 Mitsubishi Montero will come completely redesigned. After more than a decade of production, it was about time to see some changes. This new model will bring so many. It looks like the company will go for some radical changes. Not only that the new model will come with the new platform, it could easily become a crossover. Instead of a traditional body on frame construction, we could see a 2018 Mitsubishi Montero with a modern unibody platform, which will provide better driving characteristics, but weaker off-road capabilities. When it comes to styling, we should see many of those attractive lines from a GC-PHEV Concept, which had its premiere a few years ago. The interior will also come completely new, with more space, better materials, and plenty of latest hi-tech features.
2018 Mitsubishi Montero engines
When it comes to powertrain, we expect to see 2018 Mitsubishi Montero in, at least, three variants. There will be two gasoline versions for sure. The base model will most likely feature some of the familiar V6 engines, while more efficient inline-four unit should be optional. These engines should come with a new 8-speed automatic transmission. This new crossover will probably come in a hybrid variant too. We will see a combination of V6 gasoline engine and hi-output electric motors, with total output around 350 horses.
2018 Mitsubishi Montero release date
Although we couldn’t find any official information about the launch date, many believe that the 2018 Mitsubishi Montero will come somewhere at the beginning of next year. Price is still unknown.
