Car of the Week - April 30, 2001

2001 Mitsubishi Montero

How about an all-new design, a powerful 200-hp V6 engine, standard seating for seven with a stowable third-row seat, and rigid unibody construction? The cup of tea you have been looking for could be right here in the 2001 Mitsubishi Montero.

The XLS features part-time 4WD with two-speed transfer case, power windows, door locks and sideview mirrors, security alarm system with remote keyless entry, 10-way adjustable driver's seat with dual height adjustment, and a new, stowable third-row bench seat with under-floor storage compartment, and more.

The Limited includes Active Trac™ 2WD/AWD/4WD with electronic engagement and two-speed transfer case, Sportronic™ sequential-shift 5-speed automatic transmission and limited-slip rear differential. Also, a power driver's seat, including power adjustable lumbar support, leather front- and second-row seating surfaces and heated front seats.

We climbed some very steep Arizona rock faces and gullies with ease, then cruised the highway in sinful comfort. If you're in the market for an SUV, be sure to include the Montero, a real climber and cruiser, in your test drive list.
