hi Kaustubh.

its not possible.
as the chassis is totally different, along with suspension geometry & engine position.

but just like the normal 650 is converted to cj340 by cutting pasting, you can use 4x4 sumo chassis & cut it short to suit SIERRA body. (BTW i am also thinking in the similar lines )

see this thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-te...4-project.html (New 4X4 project)

salil ji,

i have not started the negotiations but i will start ASAP , just waiting for a call from PUNE.

you see currently the prices for sumo are very low & in my area a sumo with 4x4 is next to scrap.
so i will buy this if i get it at my expected (low) price only.


rgds,
Nikhil

tata never promoted this product for general public.

i got to know about this variant trough Google. (i think in 2007~08 )

do you have any brochures or any detailed information about the sumo 4x4?

if you have it please share it here.

rgds,
Nikhil

But then how many of us even looked towards a Sumo as a personal vehicle ? I know just a handful. The interest on part of many of even these people was posssibly an off-shoot of business requirements.

I dont think I have the brochure, but I may have the price chart. Will check it out.

Thought the Victa was the first Sumo with the TDi engine.
Good to know that it came with the TDi engine as early as in 1999..Or was it specifically for the 4 wheel drive version?

Jeeva,
AFAIK, Sumo 4x4 always came with Safari's TCIC engine which was also used in Sierra Turbo.

Thanks for clarifying Shubhendra. I too was under the impression that the 4x4 sumo came with the TCIC engines from the very beginning.
The above video says its a TDi engine though and its an LHD. Probably for the export markets?
