The new 2016 Mitsubishi Montero will probably be released sometime in the next year. The new model will suffer a serious redesign which will not keep many of the predecessor’s traits. The new model, also known as Pajero in some parts of the world, will not resemble the latter that much. The manufacturer has decided to change this mid-size SUV into something that could appeal to anyone’s taste. Therefore, the new 2016 Montero will have a more elegant and dominant exterior which will have more aerodynamic and fluid feel, special features for the USA market and specially designed details. Although the model won’t look rough anymore, it will keep its amazing off-road capabilities. In addition, the new model will offer a more luxurious cabin with more than enough gadgets and gizmos. This entire aside, the true value of this redesign lays in its powertrain. The 2016 Mitsubishi Montero will have a gas and diesel engines and a hybrid powertrain to choose from. Such move will cover pretty much anyone’s choice in drivetrains, so the new SUV will have something to offer for anyone interested in a quality, capable and amazing vehicle.
2016 Mitsubishi Montero Exterior And Interior
The details about the 2016 Mitsubishi Montero exterior and interior are still kept in the dark, but there is some rough information about it. To start with, the new model will have a new platform, made out of lightweight but strong materials. This will reduce the vehicle’s weight and hence improve its performance and fuel economy. Also, the new platform will provide better underpinning which should result in easier handling and improved agility. Furthermore, the new model will get a new, sleek and modern exterior. The details are unknown, but some sources claim it will not resemble the current Pajero. With this in mind, it is hard to say just how the new SUV might look like. Also, the reports about the interior are very scarce. The new model should have a slightly bigger cabin, and it is expected to offer higher level of luxury, which includes high-quality materials and more equipment as a standard.
Engine Options Of 2016 Mitsubishi Montero
The 2016 Mitsubishi Montero will have various engines offered, even though the final list is still in development. The gas and diesel engines will certainly make the choice, but there are no reports on the particular unit that will be installed. There is a possibility of using other Mitsubishi model’s engines, but also there is a slight chance of developing completely new ones for this occasion. In addition, the 2016 Montero will have a plug-in hybrid powertrain, which will be borrowed from the Mitsubishi Outlander. This powerplant consist of a 2.0-liter inline-four gas engine and two 60-kilowatt electric motors. The model will use lithium-ion batteries and it will come with an all-wheel drive. However, if the batteries get low on energy, the drive mode switches to a front-wheel drive. Other details about the powertrain and performance of the new Montero should be announced soon.
2016 Mitsubishi Montero Release Date
Like we said before, the new 2016 Mitsubishi Montero will have its release sometime in the middle of 2015. The premiere, therefore, might take place on some of the next year’s first American auto shows, or maybe even sooner. As for the price, there is no official information about it just yet.
