DATA

The Mitsubishi Montero was born in 1981 and its original name, Pajero, is derived from the leopard of the prairies, an emblematic animal in Japan. It had four generations in its history and the second generation was assembled in Colombia, between 1994 and 2012. The last generation is only manufactured in Japan and had a range of engines from 2.4 to 3.8 liters.

This has 15 years of production with only slight changes. This year, according to the plans presented by the brand in 2020, the Montero will cease to exist because the brand will focus on its Sport variant and other urban-type trucks, as well as ‘clean’ technologies.
