Mitsubishi Montero,Reviews

Mitsubishi Montero has built up plenty of respect for the name Montero -- or Pajero, as this midsize SUV is known in other global markets.

The Limited added a five-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode, "Active Trac" full-time four-wheel drive, a limited-slip rear differential and upgraded interior appointments such as leather seats and an Infinity stereo.
