Snapshot: Mahindra has lined up a new EX variant of the Bolero for launch in the next few months. The EX variant of the Bolero will be a stripped out variant, much like the Scorpio EX, albeit with the 2.5 liter M2DICR common rail, turbo diesel engine that outputs 62 Bhp-195 Nm.
As a part of its 2014 strategy of lining up product refreshes and variants, Mahindra & Mahindra will add a new, cut price variant to India’s best selling MUV , the Bolero. The variant will be called the EX and will sit below the likes of the SLE, SLX and ZLX variants of the MUV. The Bolero is sold in four other variants: DI in 2WD and 4WD forms, Ambulance and Plus.
Like the SLE, SLX and ZLX variant, the Bolero EX will be powered by the 2.5 liter M2DICR turbo diesel engine with common rail fuel injection. This engine outputs 75 Bhp-195 Nm and is mated to a NGT 520 5 speed manual synchromesh gearbox. A rear wheel drive layout is standard on the Bolero MUV. A cut price variant with the M2DICR diesel engine, the Bolero EX dumps the following features:
- Air conditioner
- Power Steering
- Wheel caps
- Spare wheel cover
- Remote fuel lid opener
- Central arm rest on second row
- Fabric seats
