Scotland enter the game after wins in Australia, Fiji and Samoa in June, but have never beaten the All Blacks in 28 prior Tests.
"A lot of people might be saying Scotland haven't got a chance, but I think they've got a great team," Vito said.
"They've got real strengths and for me they're a massive opposition, especially because I've never played them before. It's a bit of an unknown.
"I know they're coming off some big highs. There's a lot of confidence running off them."
Vito has been named at the base of the scrum in an All Blacks team showing 10 changes from the side which began the 18-18 draw with Australia on October 20.
The All Blacks were seeking a 17th successive win in Brisbane, but instead had to settle for a draw in a match which saw them fail to score a try for the first time in 105 fixtures, since August 2004.
Many of Vito's previous Test caps have come at blindside flanker, but now he has the chance to challenge Kieran Reid for the number eight berth he favours.
"Any time you get named in the All Blacks, let alone the starting XV, you know it's a chance and you've got to add to the All Black legacy," the 25-year-old Hurricanes back-row said.
"To get the first opportunity to start in the eight jersey is something you can't take lightly. I've got to take it.
"It's pretty awesome to get the opportunity to play at eight.
"I played there my whole Super season and to come to the ABs, it's always good to get on the field at six, but to get an opportunity at eight, that's where I'd love to see myself.
"I feel like you're placed under a bit more responsibility, with the ball at the back at the scrum, and feel a little bit more involved in the game.
"It's a bit more of a challenge. I haven't done it for the ABs for a while; last time was back in the World Cup.
"It's about getting my communications right and get all my homework done and make sure it's pretty seamless going forward."
