Welcome to Top Gear Philippines' online forum!
January will see the much awaited Mitsubishi Montero Sport VGT powered SUV in The Philippines.The 2.5 VGT (variable geometry turbo) engine will be introduced in January with 177hp and 350nm torque (manual with 400nm). It will at first be sold as a range topping 2.5L 4x4 GLS SE Auto (5spd tiptronic) and costing in the region of P1.6m. This premium model will be clad in leather and sport HID (bi-xenon) headlamps. It is expected to retain the '90's look' woodgrain trim much to the annoyance of many would be buyers.As widely expected the 3.2 SE will be discontinued and it has been discounted to the tune of P75,000 in the past months.
Dan, the new 2.5 vgt is more powerful than the present 3.2, so it would be a no brainer to continue to try to sell it. Afterall the 2.5 vgt is the only available diesel engine on the UK Strada and the Auzzie Challenger.
Just saw the other day, c/o a UK website that the 2.5-litre auto-tranny Triton (or Strada in Philippines) got 400 Nm of grunt while the manual is 350 Nm (the other way around hehe.... i don't really know and it made me wonder). It also produces around 178 pferdestarke (175 bhp). Incidentally, the Triton and the Montysport use the same engine.
I hope they will install the updated 4m41 3.2 liter with 190hp and 410nm to the montero sport
It must have been a typo on the site you were looking at.Firstly there is no Triton in the UK. The Strada is sold as an L200. Their higher spec models have the VGT engine but the manual here: http://www.mitsubishi-cars.co.uk/l200/specifications.aspx?Variant=OU1 produces 400Nm and the Automatic here: http://www.mitsubishi-cars.co.uk/l200/specifications.aspx?Variant=OU2 produces 350Nm.The same applies to Australian Strada (aka Triton) and Montero (aka Challenger)
