New Mitsubishi Montero will Be an Affordable SUV Alternative

The Mitsubishi Montero nameplate is coming back! Well, at least it is in America. The new Montero will hit the North American market sometime in 2017. It will hit the UK market as the Shogun at the same time. Of course, there’s more to be excited about here than just the name, though—the Montero will be a great, affordable option on the crowded SUV landscape.

The Mitsubishi brand conceived the new Montero as a rival to the Land Rover Discovery, in fact. A concept version of the new Montero was previewed both in Tokyo and Chicago. The GC-PHEV concept, however, is both heavier and bulkier than the production version of the Montero will be. The production version will be lighter and stripped-down to provide both greater efficiency and a cheaper starting price to customers.

The new Montero will also be a hybrid plug-in vehicle, giving it extra versatility and capability over many of its competitors. “A lot of rivals are more beautiful or more refined but the Shogun needs to be an authentic off-roader: not fancy, not a school-run car but for people who tow horse boxes or actually go off road,” said Lance Bradley, Mitsubishi’s UK chief.
