“Yes, that is one thing we are looking at. A new SUV,” Kunimoto-san said. “The SUV is still growing, also in China and Europe, so it (an SUV) would be a good decision for Mitsubishi.” Remember, only a week ago it was announced Fred Diaz
-former head of Ram who left to work his truck development magic at Nissan (the Titan is the result)-will become Mitsubishi North America’s new CEO. Many were caught by surprise with the announcement because Diaz was previously seen as someone who may, perhaps, lead a larger brand, such as Nissan. But given Kunimoto-san’s bullish attitude toward a new SUV and Diaz’s new job, a reborn Montero does not sound farfetched at all.
