Aside from the recent announcement from Mitsubishi Motors about the revival of its Ralliart brand, the Japanese automaker has one more surprise in store. The brand has also announced that the next generation of the Mitsubishi Montero Sport will be coming in 2023. This is part of the brand’s strategy to further strengthen its presence in the ASEAN lineup.
Under the brand’s timeline, the fourth-generation Montero Sport is scheduled to make its debut sometime in 2023. However, before the SUV makes its debut, its sibling the Mitsubishi Strada will be the first one to take the spotlight. This will give the public a quick look at what could be coming for the SUV once its pickup sibling launches.
Aside from the pickup truck and SUV duo, Mitsubishi has also announced that it will also be revealing two new crossovers that are set to make their debut within the same year as the Montero Sport. However, the names of these two new vehicles have yet to be released to the public, but one is reported to be based on the Engelberg concept. The other crossover also set to launch, will reportedly be positioned in the subcompact segment, which has seen a recent boom in popularity over the years.
Mitsubishi Motors has done well to keep further details of its upcoming vehicles under wraps. Ashwani Gupta, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Performance Officer of Nissan, has confirmed that the next-generation Nissan Navara and Mitsubishi Strada will be sharing platforms. It is important to remember that Mitsubishi and Nissan have a partnership with one another, this grants them access to certain technologies from one another and the use of certain platforms as well.
While 2023 is still far away, this gives Nissan and Mitsubishi ample time to further develop and refine their future vehicles. With that said, might also see the next generation of the Terra and Montero Sport being built locally as well, as Gupta has previously announced that the two Japanese brands are looking to build both SUVs locally at the Sta Rosa plant.
