The beefy Montero has superb SUV credentials, with many Paris-Dakar Rallies under its belt. Mitsubishi makes no apologies for the Montero's truck-like personality, although it rides surprisingly well on its all-independent suspension. The only model is the fully equipped Montero Limited, which has a 3.8L V-6 coupled to a 5-speed automatic. A versatile Active-Trac(R) drive system allows the driver to choose between 2WD, AWD, and 4WD depending on road and weather conditions. Although the Montero is smaller than most competitive SUVs, its combination of rugged looks and off-road capability make it unique.
