The Tata Xenon is a low-volume pick-up truck that sells more in the commercial vehicle segment than the personal vehicle space. Low volumes also mean that the ones that end up getting modified are quite rare in India. Exceptions do exist though, and here is the country’s maddest modified Tata Xenon pick-up truck that can give the Isuzu V Cross and Mahindra Scorpio Getaway a run for their money. The pick-up truck in the video below is owned by Shariqh Abdul of Hyderabad. It features a host of modifications, both visual and functional. All the modifications come together to give this pick-up truck brute street presence and macho appeal.
This vehicle is a 2014 Tata Nexon, with no engine modifications. What this means is that it runs the standard 2.2-litre
turbocharged diesel engine with 140 Bhp-320 Nm, and a 5-speed manual gearbox. This Nexon is rear-wheel driven. As for the modifications, the exteriors are where most of the action is.
The front of this pick-up truck gets a custom bumper with bullbar and embedded fog lamps and a reprofiled hood with a functional hood scoop and vents. The grille is also a custom-built item. The vehicle gets a wide track thanks to spacers, and the Maxxis mud terrain tyres really give it that extra width.
There are custom metal fenders for all four tyres, which run steel wheels. At the rear, a massive tyre carrier, a metal bumperette and twin exhausts that open up behind the dual cab are the key changes. This modified Xenon also gets rooflights and a 42-inch light bar.
There is a suspension lift that makes the vehicle much taller than the stock version, and this is another factor that adds to the brute appeal of this SUV. On the inside, there’s a new colour scheme with leather seats and a center console borrowed from the Toyota Innova. That sums up the list of mods on this muscular pick-up truck.
