Congrats.

Does the Getaway come with the pre-mHawk Engine?

Congratulations in advance! One more round of congratulations to go when the delivery happens!
Thanks Doc! As off now only thing in the shopping list is ICE and some tarpaulin covers. May be more later.

I am sure you would enjoy the new beast to the fullest.
Thanks Brajesh Bhai! The thought about Getaway was quite sudden actually!

Am just figuring out some beefy looking vehicle with fogs and huge tires. Any plans on the same?

Oh thanks for confirming.

And why is that so? To keep the cost down?

I would think that this could be because the Getaway is sold as a load mover in export markets, a rugged engine would be helpful. m-Hawk being a aluminum block engine may not be so rugged.

I second your thoughts since the Scorpios being sold to the Army too are CRDe 4wds and not MHawks.

Any other pointers from anyone else?

Thanks.

For your second query, seriously no idea as I have not sat or seriously looked around the vehicle in person. Especially the new look Getaway. So am in as much dark as you

BTW I have decided on the following customisation list from the factory especially since its made to order and the export versions are supplied with it.
  1. Changing Final Drive Ratio from 4.3 to 4.55 as the Getaway comes with bigger tyres. This will increase the acceleration.
  2. Changing Open Diff at rear to Limited Slip Differential.

Apart from this, I would need to get the following:
  1. Hella's
  2. Rear detachable frame for soft top as seen in the video below
  3. Tarpaulin cover for water proofing of luggage on long trip.
  4. Nylon or any such material net for keeping luggage in place in the load bay.

Can anyone guide me where I can get items 2 to 4?

For item 4 you could try the bungee cords available at high quality adventure shops.The imported ones are really good.A few touring friends have them and they are infinitely stretchable and resistive to failure.

Milecruncher: You could make a cover like this which could protect your luggage while travelling and also it looks good.

The other one which i love is this

The cover in the video will offer you space but could be noisy while travelling at speeds.

Thanks Maddy.

I think I'll go with the second option as I can takeit off any time I want and also accomodate people sitting. Can't do that in hard cover.
