Recently, Mitsubishi dropped a somewhat cryptic hint about a vehicle set to make its debut at the upcoming Chicago Auto Show. Mitsubishi released an image showing a tall SUV sitting on the top of a hill with the words, “The Return of a Legend” printed on the page.
Based on the shadowy image of the SUV and what we know about Mitsubishi, it would seem the Montero is making a comeback. The Montero was sold here in the United States from 1983 through 2005. It is still sold in other markets around the world as the Pajero, so resurrecting it here wouldn’t be too big of an issue.
The Montero was loved by off-road enthusiasts and would surely be welcomed back with open arms. It may not keep the traditional body-on-frame design of most large SUVs, but we would expect it would still maintain its off-road nature.
Montero or not, Mitsubishi will take this SUV out of the shadows on February 12. Would you like the Mitsubishi Montero to come back to the lineup?
