Tata Hexa pickup truck will target Isuzu D-Max V-Cross pickup truck; to be powered by the same 2.2-litre Varicor diesel engine
Tata Hexa has earned quite positive response in the country with its muscular design, premium features and comfort along with powerful engine. Now, with the flagship Tata model being quite successful in the country, the homegrown auto major is working on a pickup truck that will be based on the Hexa and it will target the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross adventure pickup.
Currently, Tata Motors is working on the concept model and expect it to be displayed at the 2018 New Delhi Auto Expo. However, production plans for this pickup truck is not finalised yet. The automaker has Tata Xenon pickup truck in its stable, but that is not as comfortable and featured packed as the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross. The Hexa pickup will bring freshness to the auto major’s product lineup and it will throw tough challenge to the Isuzu model with premium appearance.
The expected Tata pickup truck would come sharing several components with the Hexa. It will certainly be higher priced than the Xenon and offer generous amount of comfort and premium features like touchscreen infotainment system. Also, it would boast a very muscular and strong road presence compared to the Xenon pickup.
Tata Hexa gets power from the 2.2-litre Varicor 400 diesel engine with Super Drive modes. The engine is capable of churning out 154 bhp of peak power at 4,000 rpm and 400 Nm of peak torque at 1,700 rpm. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 6-speed automatic gearbox as well. Also, it is available in both 4×2 and 4×4 configurations. Expect the Hexa pickup truck to be powered by the same engine and come available in same configurations as well.
It is not sure if Tata will finally produce the Hexa based pickup truck. But if the company gives the project green signal, it will surely be an interesting product from the brand. The pickup truck would be priced at around Rs. 15 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi), compared to Isuzu D-Max V-Cross’ Rs. 13-3 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi) price tag.
