And now, mated to this world-class engine is a 6-speed manual transmission with a wide gear ratio and easy-to-modulate clutch.

  2. what are the differences from the GLS aside from the tranny?

  3. Mitsu needs to change their Dynamic Shield design philosophy. It looks too busy and too chromey without adding any positive to aesthetics. And the hemorrhoidal back, it's even worst. New owner
    Nissan should be able to discern Mitsu needs help in their styling.

  4. Montero looks great when it was introduced but after a year, the looks doesn't age well. Maybe that's they sell less of these as compared to the previous generation and add to that the reliability issues of Mitsubishi

  5. Because of prize and performance this model may be the king of the road again. MU-X and Everest has another contender.

  6. What is easy-to-modulate clutch?

  7. Review pleaaassseee!!!

  8. 1.28M for the GLX Manual and 1.35M for the GLS Auto after "discounts" that apparently are permanent. Sounds reasonable enough.

  9. Good value. However I find it strange that the fortuner are now outnumbering the montero when it comes to road presence. I mean the fortuner is like literally in every corner.

    1. Mitsu has an image problem as to quality (SUA), credibility (mileage controversy), and literally, it's plain ugly.

  10. Although not true, the SUA image did hurt Montero sales. But I don't believe mileage has any impact. Mileage figures vary from country to country due to govt rules methodology. If it's a big concern to the buyer, we form our mileage expectation based on review of credible journalists and actual user experience in forums. I'm happy with my 2014 MS MT. It's mileage is 20pct better than my 2010 altis 1.6V AT in traffic.
