The 1.5L four-cylinder D117 diesel engine in the RWD version develops a maximum power output of 117 PS and 300 Nm of peak torque. It is paired only with a six-speed manual transmission. It can also be purchased with the 2.0L four-cylinder mStallion petrol engine that generates 150 PS and 320 Nm.

It is mated to a six-speed torque converter automatic transmission only. Mahindra is expected to launch a new base variant of the Thar in the coming months. Leaked documents suggest that it could be called the AX AC and it will be slotted below the existing AX (O) and will lack some of the features that are available in the AX (O) as it will be priced aggressively.

The exact features list of the AX AC is yet to be divulged. It could only get a front facing second-row seating arrangement.
