According to him the 2.2 LX is in transit and will reach by this weekend and they will have launch party at TAJ delhi and 3.0 production is stoped.

Sales guy told me it is in transit and will be with them by this week end and will give mw call, i will update once I have a look

The LX confusion will clear up in a couple of days, thats good enough - nothing like a new LX 2.2 if it comes out simultaneously with the EX and VX versions.

on comparing brochures [3.0 vs 2.2], length is reduced - 4810 vs 4650.

Any reason why the ground clearence increased - 190 [laden] vs 205 [though laden not mentioned].

The rear seats looks the same, though the kolkata sales guy in one of the leads said about improved spacious rear seats - looks he just got carried away.

Why is there a confusion when the brochure states very clearly that Lx, Ex and Vx have the same 2.2 motor????

The 3.0 goes into the new Sumo soon. The good news is that spares will continue to be available, and will definitely be cheaper - though I doubt if we will need engine spares.

The confusion that I had was whether it is being launched along with EX/VX. The kolkata sales guy talked about Diwali launch so had neo, whereas brute was more or less sure of LX coming out on launch date itself.

The current 3.0 remains very good value with the discounts going on - it is now around 1 lakh less than LX 2.2 [considering price point of 8.4 L OTR] The Sumo with 3.0 engine will be a interesting product- both by performance and how it churns up the segment.

The 2.2 has a oil change of 15 K instead of 10 K - how much effect does it have on savings - money wise?

Did anyone notice that TATA has included "Follow me home" feature. This feature was made popular by Skoda.

New Safari is overall a good package. Well Done TATA's ! ! !

You know what, the mannual clearly states that if driven in stop go traffic and dusty conditions,
Quote:
we recommend that you change the oil@7500kms. Oil Quality is of higher segment and now stands at API-CH4
. But they still recommend, castrol gtd, hp milcy and NOW EXXON Mobil too. The engine oil costing would be a tad lil more because the capacity of the oil is now 7.5 ltrs instead of 3.0 ltr dicor 6.5. Do some rough maths and you will extract the savings

the wheel cover still is so awful, hope they change by the time LX launches.
Guys, lets get over the spare wheel cover. That one will not be a show stopper for any of us who are going to get this beast.

Castrol GTD is not API-CH4. You would need Castrol RX Super Plus.

The gas filled struts for the rear door - good idea (first seen on Suzuki Grand Vitara). Way to go. If execution is as good as the concept, it should reduce the rattle.
