When is the All-New Mitsubishi Montero Sport Coming?
We all know the all-new 2015 Mitsubishi Strada is coming really, really, really soon. And because of an embargo, we can’t really spill the beans yet (you’ll have to wait a few days for our full story). However, at the sidelines of the technical presentation, the first inevitable question asked was when we can expect the all-new Montero Sport. It’s quite logical given the Strada and the Montero Sport share the same basic platform and drivetrain.
Well, we have the answer. And it’s pretty straight-forward.
According to Mr. Koichi Namiki, Corporate General Manager of the Global Pickup Project Promotion Office of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, the all-new Montero Sport is due within fiscal year 2015. This all means the all-new Montero Sport is expected to pop-up, but not necessarily in our market, within April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016. This is still a long window, but at least we have an idea when the Montero Sport’s coming.
With the all-new Strada already aiming to bring luxury features to the pick-up truck segment while promising to be the roomiest (cabin space), most maneuverable, and most comfortable in its class, the expectations for the all-new Montero Sport have certainly been raised.
