It is believed that the third-generation SUV can be launched in the month of June, as the 20th anniversary of Mahindra Scorpio will be celebrated next month. Now information about its engine is coming out. It is believed that the new 2022 Mahindra Scorpio has been launched with a 2.2-liter diesel engine.
It is likely that the 2.2-litre diesel engine will be offered in two tuned states, similar to what you see on the Mahindra XUV700. The 2022 Mahindra Scorpio is likely to get a 2-litre turbo-petrol and a 2.2-litre diesel engine from its stablemates.
The diesel engine can be offered in two tuned states, with 130 Bhp power in the first tune state and 155 Bhp power in the second tuned state. Like the Mahindra XUV700, the company may limit the base motor with a manual gearbox and lower-spec trims.
A more powerful engine option will be offered in the higher-spec trims and a complete buffet including all-wheel drive could be offered. This move will help Mahindra to price the base diesel variant more competitively. Let us know that two different diesel engines are available in the current Mahindra Scorpio.
The first of these gets the 2.6-litre M2DI engine, which is limited to the base variant, while the top trims get the familiar 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine. There is also a petrol variant for the existing Mahindra Scorpio, so it is believed that the option of a petrol engine can be found for the new Mahindra Scorpio as well.
Let us know that recently the company has released a new teaser of the new Mahindra Scorpio, in which a glimpse of the front and side look of the upcoming Scorpio has been shown. However, the company has maintained the suspense by not disclosing its design completely yet.
Mahindra’s new 2022 Mahindra Scorpio is being built on the ladder frame chassis. It is also being speculated that the new 2022 Scorpio could be front wheel drive (FWD). Accordingly, this will be Mahindra’s first SUV to be given a front wheel drive option. However, the company has not officially disclosed this.
