The acquisition of Mitsubishi by the Renault-Nissan Alliance seems to us to bring good news in the short term. The signing of three diamonds was happening wrong to give a generational as God commands to your ATV star. The Montero (or Pajero in according to which markets) current generation carries on sale since 1999, as the model we know today is a deep facelift that took place in the year 2006.
The fourth generation of this (current) model is already very outdated front competition, but thanks to the help of Nissan, Mitsubishi engineers will be working on its replacement in a short time. The reason for having so much work ahead, is that Nissan would be willing to cede the platform on which the current generation of the Patrol being manufactured and therefore they would not have to make a great economic or technical investment.
As they reported source of Mitsubishi, the Montero will have its generational soon will present the Nissan Patrol. But using his platform would not be the only news that would give the Japanese firm, as the fifth generation of the Mitsubishi Montero could use a gasoline engine assisted by another electric. With him, they would be able to reduce consumption and emissions and make viable marketing in certain areas of the globe.
According to Trevor Mann, Chief Operating Officer of Mitsubishi “one of the things that we need to see is what are the benefits we could have in terms of maintaining such a product if we worked with Nissan, that is something that we are going to explore”. With this statement he makes it clear that the future of the Montero goes to collaborate with the new matrix to save costs and improve a product that had been very obsolete in terms of technology or mechanical.
We will be attentive to the next news provided by the Renault-Nissan Alliance. The next generation of the Nissan Patrol and Infiniti QX80 should not take more than two years so it will be the right time for a Mitsubishi the world whole its new all-terrain.
