Initially, the company released plans to manufacture electric off-road vehicles there for the American market and now they launched a Diesel engine from the 1940s tuned to work in 2018. Being part of the ‘road-legal’ platoon requires passing emission norms as well and Mahindra forgot to share the same. The 2018 Mahindra Roxor employs a 2.5-litre diesel engine churning out 62 HP at 3,200 rpm and 195 Nm at 1,400 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission which is further connected to a low-range transfer case.The latest off-roader from Mahindra will not launch in India. The 2018 Mahindra Roxor was designed in Detroit and is being manufactured at the Mahindra plant inaugurated last year. The reports suggest a starting price of $15,549 with the range-topping at $18,999
Considering the engine has to carry the car weighing, 1,377 kg, passengers – 182 kg, load at rear – 158 kg (max) and a towing capacity of further 1583 kg totalling to 3,300 kg of total weight, 64 HP sounds understated and the top speed of 72 km/h overstated. What would be funny to see is Mahindra doing all the special editions of the Roxor like they do with their SUVs here. #StickerJobs
