The brand is expected to equip the updated SUV with a BS6 2.0-litre diesel engine that will be capable of offering maximum power of 140HP and a peak torque of 300Nm. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission while a 4-Wheel-Drive system will be on offer as an option. Once launched in India, the new-gen Mahindra Thar is expected to get a starting price tag of around INR 11 lakh (ex-showroom).
