Default Force Traveller at Auto Expo

I noticed the new Force Traveller in one of Moralfiber's pics. Anybody have the scoop on this vehicle? Supposed to have the Merc's common rail diesel.

that thing looks too ugly and messd up...

they have tried to give a muscular look but have made a disgusting result out of it.

i would still prefer the older look even though it is 2 decades old

I guess looks wont change much. What we are all interested is what's under the hood. Last I remember Force motors had some license to put the old C-class (OM616 is it??) CDI engine inside this once the 2008 model C came out.

Thanks for the pics guys. This is change for the sake of change. Honestly, some of the DC designed Travellers looked better up front.

What happened to the new Merc engine. The specs show the age old 2650 DI engine??

195 Nm, heck dosen't the Verna make more than that??

The output is too low for such a big vehicle.

Saw this one when I went for a marriage. Looked stunning with those alloys and tyres.
