17: Mitsubishi Montero
Another SUV that got forgotten in the mix is the Mitsubishi Montero. The Montero was a Mitsubishi SUV offering for most of the 1980s and ’90s and was quite capable. The large, upright body and high ground clearance of the Montero made it universally accepted by enthusiasts and soccer moms alike. By the turn of the decade, the brand tried to position the Montero as more of a luxury SUV and sales tanked.
The original Montero was also available in a two-door version, which has become a likable choice amount enthusiasts. The styling of the SUV was something that makes it timeless and still popular today. Ordinary drivers have forgotten the Montero and moved onto crossover models, but the Montero was at one time one of the most popular UTES on the road.
