I have no idea but have had the same question since I bought my Montero Sport. I bought it without an owner's manual. Does anyone know what the A/T button does?

Yes, it forces the tranny to start in 2nd gear when it is slick/icy outside (starting from a stop). Go and try it now, you will hear and feel the difference. Next time it snows here (Denver), I'll have my 2wd Monty out and see how the A/T button works on snow/ice.
