Mitsubishi will continue with the production of its Montero model. Some speculations were suggesting a new model that will replace the Montero SUV. However, that won’t happen. The 2020 Mitsubishi Montero has been spotted under heavy camouflage. The prototype is showing plenty of visible updates.
However, interior changes aren’t visible. Surely, Mitsubishi will deliver some improvements from the inside as well. New Montero SUV will remain a five-door model. It is available in the South and North America. In Asia, this model is very popular and it is available under the name “Pajero”. Montero Sport will be available as well in 2020.
2020 Montero Spy Shots
For the start, spy shots aren’t showing any significant upgrades. The 2020 Mitsubishi Montero will remain a five-door SUV. Dimensions are intact, just like the overall shape of the vehicle. Latest spy shots are showing new taillights and further improvements on the rear fascia.
Body lines are sharper than before and front end will gain reshaped grille. The rest of the front fascia is not visible. Still, we expect additional changes on the headlights and bumper. To the sides, 17-inch alloy wheels are unchanged. Mitsubishi said the all-new Montero will be lighter than the current model.
Mitsubishi will introduce updates from the inside. However, we still don’t know what parts will be updated or changed. Prototype model wears a perfect camouflage so the interior details are not visible. There will be room for seven passengers. That means the seating layout will largely remain. On the other hand, the layout of the buttons could be changed. The 2020 Mitsubishi Montero will offer better comfort.
Also, we can expect more soft-touch surfaces and more upscale materials from the inside. The dashboard is basically all-new and it won’t suffer further changes. The infotainment system will gain an update. Upper trims will once again offer leather upholstery as standard. The base model will keep Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard features. Heated seats and three-zone climate control will be optional.
Same Engine Lineup
The forthcoming 2020 Mitsubishi Montero will ride on the same engine as its predecessor. A 3.0-liter V6 will be standard once again. This unit is producing 300 hp. Optionally, a 2.8-liter diesel unit is available. That means the whole lineup will remain. However, some rumors are suggesting a hybrid drivetrain. The same rumors are reporting that Mitsubishi will pair a 2.0-liter gasoline unit with the electric motor and battery pack.
A 60 kWh electric unit will generate around 200 horsepower if not even more. However, the focus will be on the mileage that will be astonishing. For now, this is just speculation. Furthermore, the Montero Sport model will be available once again. This variant could arrive with the all-new turbocharged unit.
2020 Mitsubishi Montero Price and Release Date
New Montero SUV will arrive with a slight price increase. That means the 2020 Mitsubishi Montero will cost around $30,000. Montero Sport model will cost above $45,000 and speculated hybrid variant $40,000. This five-door SUV will hit the markets in the second half of 2019.
