Not 100% sure myself, but i guess air suspension is a fairly recent addition. Force launched the Traveller 26 series in 2012 and they pointed out the plans for an air suspension back then.

The 4x4x4 thing is essentially a marketing thing. E.O.V 4x4x4= Extreme Offroader Vehicle that has 4WD for 4 terrains in 4 seasons.

It was available as a retro fitment by Wheels India. Now this is offered as OE fitment.

Unfortunately, the price list wasn't available with the personnel at the stall, but you can try using this link to check out the manufacturer stated prices. I believe 4,020 mm wheelbase models start at Rs 10.40 Lakh and go up to Rs 12.10 Lakh on-road.
