Modified Mahindra Bolero comes courtesy of the brand’s in-house tuning division, Mahindra Customization
Mahindra Bolero is due for a facelift soon as witnessed from the spied images emerged recently online. It is expected to have gained amber coloured tail lights, smaller tailgate handle, revisions to bumpers up front and rear, subtle changes to the grille and headlamps, etc. The interiors are more likely to receive minor updates as well alongside revised features list.
Mahindra Customization laid its hands on the Thar and brought the DayBreak Edition at the 2016 Indian Auto Expo which played a significant role in attracting spectators towards the Mahindra Adventure zone at the motoring show. It boasted massive 37-inch off-road tyres besides everything that are unconventionally huge in size.
The tuning firm has put its artistry in works again and this time the Bolero is modified. Captured at a dealership in Calicut, the one-off Bolero has been displayed for sales. On the outside, the customized Bolero has been applied with metal wheel arches with fasteners running along the length, metal front and rear bumpers, redesigned black foot boards, black steel rims with red pin-striping and blue hubs and enormous Maxxis Bravo all-terrain tyres.
The modified Bolero is based on the range-topping ZLX grade and no information about the price has been revealed. As the top-end model is sold in Calicut at an ex-showroom price of Rs. 6.31 lakh, expect the customized SUV to be priced higher at around Rs. 7 lakh. What we would wish the modified utility vehicle had was an all-wheel drive system as off-roading at any difficult terrain could have been made easy.
As the regular Bolero, the modified version comes built on the same ladder frame chassis ans is equipped with the same tried and tested 2.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine which is good enough to generate a power output of 62 hp at 3,200 rpm and 195 Nm of peak torque delivered between 1,400 and 2,200 rpm.
The only transmission option is the five-speed manual. Mahindra has been rumoured to be developing a sub-four metre SUV based on the Bolero and is believed to be slotted between the Nuvosport and TUV300.
