Well the TCIC model took the hit earlier and now its time for the 3.0 ltr, once the 2.2ltr is launched.

Thats the way it works.

Its a 2.0 TCIC IIRC

the "cc" is rounded to the nearest high value and this is true for all vehicles.

naaaaa... no one wants to let go of a few cc's of the engine. Image the blasphemy caused by calling a 1948cc engine as 1.9l. what about the remaining 48ccs? on the other hand, it wont harm a lot calling it a 2.0l as there is nothing to lose anyway.

And it will hit new owners/deliveries from now till its launch(if as per source) to an extent of 2-3 lakhs (depending on the model) in its resale value in the seconds market.

This thread is being Reopened because a little birdy has given some new information
From 3 August 07 Safari 3.0 dicor is getting discontinued & production of only 2.2 is going to begin. But all those who have recntly purchased safari 3.0 dont worry as engine is not getting discontinued it will be plonked in Xenon.
The launch is slated somewhere in mid August once old stock is exausted. Some minor changes are there will keep all of you posted for the same.

The Beast is coming....!

Simply Lovely !!! Exactly at the time I am thinking of buying one. Going to wait now for 2-3 weeks to see what happens at Tata showrooms.

Come on Tata - give us a good facelift !!

I call that timely info, I was about book 3.0L in an hour.

Now let's cross our fingers and hope this is true.

I am not so sure about this unless tata are planning different engines for the export model and the indian model.Its going to be manufactured in thailand as well shortly with a 2.0/2.2 L diesel engine.Similarly I think the other countries for export also are going to get the 2.0/2.2 L diesel engine.

Babu, how do you expect a sales guy to let go of his willing customer.

You should have trusted some outside sources, but not to worry 3.0 ltr will be supported and serviced.

To buy or Not is always a dilemma for immediate buyers under these circumstances when the 2.2ltr was being talking about for more than a year back.
