Latest Pick Ups Launched in India
Pick up trucks are defined as light motor vehicles that are designed to carry loads for personal or business purpose. The special attribute of the pick ups is a huge open cargo compartment that adds to the utility factor of the car. The macho looks of the car entice off-road enthusiasts who love to take their cars for long adventurous journeys. They do pretty well both off-road and on-road. However, in India these trucks are not so popular but are gradually picking up prominence with the entry of models in the segment.
Tata Xenon XT
The strong, sturdy and powerful Tata Xenon XT marks the introduction of a completely new segment in the Indian car market. The lifestyle pick-up is likely to hit the agrarian parts of the country and become a mass favourite among rich farmers and off-road enthusiasts. The Xenon XT is aggressively designed with stylish looks, refined interiors, and 4x4 off-road capabilities.
The aggressive exterior is complemented with the trademark ‘Tata’ grille, large wraparound headlamps, and flared fenders. The functional interior is packed with a host of functional features like power windows, central locking, heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), electrically adjustable side rear view mirrors, and height adjustable seats.
It is powered by a 2.2-litre DICOR diesel engine that is mated to the VTT (Variable Turbine Technology) for improved performance and fuel efficiency. In addition, an electrical shift-on-the-fly mechanism for the 4x4 application and the limited slip differential helps improve stability and handling of the car even on the toughest terrain. The Xenon XT is priced at Rs 7.62 Lakh for the 4x2 version and Rs 8.58 Lakh for the 4x4 version (ex showroom Delhi).
