We might soon be seeing an SUV on American roads again that hasn’t been seen here since 2006. The Mitsubishi Montero Sport was a good-looking, robust, and accommodating SUV back then. It looks like it’s going to be even better this time around.
As Automotive News reports, the Montero Sport is “built on the frame from the L200 pickup.” The L200 pickup truck isn’t sold in the States, but it’s extremely popular overseas. Basing the Montero Sport on a truck gives it better response and handling in places where the road conditions can be rough, Automotive News says.
The third-generation Mitsubishi Montero Sport debut will occur at the Bangkok Auto Show on August 1st. Makes sense since the SUV will likely be manufactured in Thailand. From there, Mitsubishi will export it around the world.
Will it make to the United States and if so, when? The Montero Sport might not make it to United States “anytime soon”, says Automotive News.
When you are driving, do you notice that people often honk their horn at you or give you bad looks? Can’t figure out why? It could be because you are a BAD DRIVER.
Let this go on too long and you’ll have a road rage situation on your hands. Luckily, we’ve outlined some bad driving habits so you can figure out what you are doing wrong.
Are you driving distracted? This can make your driving unpredictable to other drivers, as you divert your attention away from operating your car safely on the road with others. Put your cell phone in the glove box or trunk if you have to!
Maybe one of the reasons you are upsetting other drivers is because you are tired. As Road and Track puts it, “Drowsy driving is every bit as dangerous as drunk driving.” Coffee or an energy drink can help temporarily but there is no substitute for sleep. If you need to pull over and catch a cat nap, do it. It’s much better than the worst case scenario.
Another problem… You may be driving like a maniac. Speeding can be dangerous when you are going faster than the flow of traffic. This creates unpredictability. It also holds true that the faster you go, the more severe an accident will be were one to occur.
Of course, the real motivation to be a better driver is not to avoid bad looks from other drivers. It’s to be confident you’ll safely make it home every night. Let that be your goal!
