Couple of weeks back i was in india garage to take delivery of logan, casually i enquired about the launch of 2.2, sales guy told me that it will be out within the next two months and he was pretty sure about that. he also went to the extent that it will be 60k costlier than the existing model.

Corroborating the statement made by service supervisor to praveencr and sales person to me , it looks like there are bright chances that 2.2 may hit the showroom sooner than expected.

I am 6ft myself. Went on a long trip on it with a few others. I tell you, it can be bit too much! Moreover ours was the pre facelift. The rear suspension is really advanced! It has got a separate brain! It works only at high speeds when it starts trying to throw you off the road....!

Okay... I suppose you understand my point...

Hai BHPians,

I am also waiting to buy the eagle. A close friend who traines all the 1000 odd managers cycled through Nasik Training Centre at M&M also backs the story gaining ground that the new Gizmo filled Scorp Eagle will hit the market before Diwali for sure. It would be on display around September, 07. Hope its true, can't wait any longer.......

Happy Driving,

--Ramky

Thats indeed good news as that also means its famed rival will not be any further. Should keeping off the first few batches be advised?

Hai,

You raise a hot point.... who should be the sacrificial lamb / lambs of the first batch?

Another side... its possible that the Scorp being the bread & butter line; new Scorp will get all the backing possible. From user gorup news there instances of Goenkas interfacing with actual owners of Scorpios!!!!

Intentions aside, the scrvice delays, fan-belt glitches, break failures and indifferent service back ups seem to plague M&M. Hope the Goenkas put action where their mouth is........

Happy Driving,

2.2L, 180 Horsepower? Sure the eagle-engined Scorpio can take this much power (even if its detuned for India)?

I guess with them bringing in the ABS feature in the new model, the braking should improve.

How come there is no hood scoop on the pickup?

I thought that Mahindra was replacing the cosmetic scoop for a functional one with the 2.2 engine.

ABS doesnot improve braking by leaps and bounds, it only prevents the car from skidding, so its not neccesary that a ABS car will stop faster.

Point taken! I guess they should provide disc brakes on all four wheels along with ABS.

BTW, was just browsing the mahindrascorpio.com website and noticed the stock alloys which Mahindra offers. Seriously! Its about time that they start offering better looking alloys. I think the curvy spokes look very tacky indeed. Ugh! They offer better looking alloys in the South African market.

Although the image above details the engine as 2.2 Ltr, however the australian site has a different specification for the Mahindra Pik-up. Its a NEF 2.49L CRDe EURO-IV” - 4 stroke, 4 cylinder, 2498CC engine, and it doesnt have a scoop.

The fake scoop is really something that Mahindra needs to get rid of or make it real. I couldn't help but laugh that they even have some container underneath to collect the water that comes into the engine bay through this contraption. In my humble opinion, the scoop and the headlights are two sore points in the looks division.
