Mahindra unveiled the all-new Thar in the Indian market recently and due to the popularity of the all-new Thar, there are many who have made plans to book the all-new vehicle. The first Mahindra Thar was launched ten years ago and since then, it has remained one of the most modified vehicles in the country. There are many who have even made aftermarket grille for the all-new Thar even before its official launch. Well, here is an artist rendering showing what if all-new Thar is converted into a 6X6 pick-up truck like the G-Wagen. Well, here is the rendering image that shows a heavily modified Mahindra Thar that has been transformed into a 6X6 pick-up truck.
The rendering is made by SRK Designs and is shared on the official YouTube channel. While it shows the whole process of transforming the look of the SUV, the end-result looks extremely dramatic. The final rendered image shows the Mahindra Thar with a much longer wheelbase than the stock. This allows an extra set of wheels to be fit in without any problem. Also, the modified vehicles get the double-cabin with the pick-up flatbed that sure makes it very practical for hardcore work.
There are a lot of other changes too. The front grille, which has received a lot of criticism because of its design has been updated to an all-black horizontally stacked grille. The vehicle also gets a new dual-tone paint job and a host of auxiliary lamps on the rooftop.
The end results in look like a beast and if this turns into a reality, it will be a sight to hold on the roads. However, this will be extremely expensive modification to do and in India, it will not be road legal.
It should be noted that there are a few examples of SUVs that have been transformed like this in India before. However, powering the new axle can be a challenge. An extra live axle on a vehicle will translate into higher fuel consumption and does not really serve the purpose. Such a set-up can be useful during off-roading and dune bashing when the weight of the vehicle is equally distributed on more number of tyres and there is extra traction available. But a vehicle that you drive daily with this 6X6 set-up can be extremely uncomfortable and difficult to drive too. What do you think about this modified Mahindra Thar rendering image?
