The Mitsubishi Montero is an oldie-but-goodie. Mitsubishi’s rugged and capable SUV was sold in the US from 1983 through the 2006 model year, and has kept us hanging since then. Now, in an exciting twist, Mitsubishi has revealed a teaser image for the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, which features the shadow of an SUV and the words “The Return of a Legend.” The first thing that comes to mind: the Montero.
The teaser image shows the SUV in the distance, climbing sand dunes. If the image is any indication of the big reveal to come at the Chicago Auto show, we’d expect a rugged SUV with an upright profile – likely bigger than both the Mitsubishi Outlander and the Outlander Sport crossover.
A new Mitsubishi Montero debut would be a welcome surprise, though not completely unexpected, thanks to a number of reports and Mitsubishi concepts previewing the SUV. Additionally, low gas prices and demand for rugged, spacious, and capable vehicles could make the Montero a home run for Mitsubishi.
Stay tuned for more information as we get it from the Chicago Auto Show!
