In Indian market, pick up trucks are normally associated with commercial segment and that is one of the reason why these have not been popular among buyers in private segment. Manufacturers like Mahindra, Tata have tried launching lifestyle pickup trucks but, unfortunately these never picked up in the market. The only manufacturer who managed to create a space for themselves was Isuzu with V-Cross. Tata had Xenon pick up truck in the market but, it never got the fame or popularity like Isuzu V-Cross. Here we have a render that shows how Xenon 4×4 pick up truck would look like, if Tata were to launch one in 2022.
The render has been created and shared by nstreet_designs on their Instagram profile. The artist has completely redesigned the exterior of the pick up truck. It gets an entirely new design which inspired from the Tata Harrier and Safari. The front gets a grille that is seen on modern day Tata cars. The LED DRLs are retained and they are actually acting as an extended part of the grille. The headlamps are placed on the bumper. The front grille gets tri-arrow design elements but, they are all blacked out to give it a rugged finish.
Coming down, the front bumper has been modified too. It gets an off-road bumper with shackles on it. In comparison to Safari or Harrier, Xenon 2022 looks a lot more butch. There are no chrome elements anywhere on the pick up. Coming to the side profile, we see the chunky off-road tyres and aftermarket alloy wheels. It has decent amount of ground clearance and can handle off-road sections without any problem. A foot step is also seen here.
Like Isuzu V-Cross, Tata Xenon 2022 will also be a 4-seater pick up truck. This makes it a lot more practical as you can easily seat 4 to 5 people while keeping all the luggage in the cargo bed. On the roof, there is a large LED bar installed as well. At the rear, the SUV gets the same design as the older Xenon pick up but, the tail lights are now LEDs. It gets a tail gate with Tata written on it. Xenon and 4×4 badging is also seen on the boot. The bumper has been redesigned too.
The older version of Xenon that got discontinued from the market was powered by a 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine. The engine generated 138 Bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. The pick up was available with a manual gearbox only. If Tata plans to bring back Xenon pickup in the market, we feel like, it will be powered by a 2.0 litre turbo diesel engine that powers Harrier and Safari.
That being said, This is just a render image and Tata currently has no plans to launch Xenon 4×4 pick up in the market. The render however looks very neat and we won’t mind if Tata plans to launch Xenon in the market in this form. It will be a good competitor to Isuzu V-Cross pick up which is ruling the segment currently.
