Also, the document further confirms that the option of 4WD will be exclusive to the diesel variants.
The homegrown brand has recently trademarked a new ‘4XPLOR’ name. As per reports, the upcoming Scorpio-N’s 4WD system is likely to be called 4XPLOR. Therefore, it is safe to assume that 4×4 variants of the SUV will wear the 4XPLOR badge.
However, the option of a 4×4 drivetrain will be available on select variants only, and they are likely to be equipped with a low-range gearbox and a mechanically-locking rear differential. The Scorpio-N will utilise a solid axle at the rear and an independent front suspension. Besides, multiple driving modes, namely – Rough Road, Snow, Mud, and Water, will be available on the Scorpio-N.
In the third-gen rendition, the Scorpio-N will be sold with two engine choices – 2.0L mStallion turbo-petrol and 2.2L mHawk diesel engine. The former will belt out 170 PS of peak power. The oil burner, on the other hand, will be available in 2 states of tune – 130 PS and 160 PS. Mahindra will offer both of these engine options with 6-speed MT and 6-speed AT transmission choices.
To further ensure that the occupants are cocooned in comfort, the Scorpio-N’s cabin will be loaded to the brim. A large touchscreen infotainment unit with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay connectivity, semi-digital instrument console, dual-zone climate control, multiple airbags, and a lot more features will be available on the upcoming Scorpio-N. The upcoming SUV of the homegrown brand will have a strong presence, thanks to its beefy dimensions.
