Mahindra has said that in the Bolero VLX, greater ease of driving is achieved because the injection pressure is independent of the engine speed and flat torque over a wide speed range. The VLX has an advanced active surge damper that reduces jerks during gear shifts. It is also expected to handle rough terrain better using the NGT 530R transmission and upgraded front suspension. The Bolero VLX will have reduced Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) levels.

Mr. Pawan Goenka, President, Automotive Sector, has been quoted as saying, “This rugged, yet stylish SUV has enough power to whip up a storm and is ideal for the young, urban customer who takes to the city and the open road with equal ease.”
