The Indian car market has tilted towards SUVs, in recent times, because of their practicality and road presence. However, the SUVs in India are nowhere near the big bad SUVs that are sold in international markets. To enjoy the same level of attention, many have imported various SUVs available internationally. Here are five such SUVs that have been caught on video in India.
GMC Sierra Denali HD
Big bad pick-up trucks are a common sight in the US. In the cramped roads of India, they take up the space of almost the whole road and become a huge attraction. Here is a GMC Sierra in its big bad avatar.
The bright blue SUV came to India through carnet. The Denali HD comes with four wheels on the rear axle and the truck also gets aftermarket exhausts that come out of the flatbed. It is powered by a 6.6-litre turbo-diesel engine that churns out a maximum of 445 Bhp of power and a humungous 1,233 Nm of peak torque.
The Ford Ranger is one of the most spotted trucks in the US. The heavy-duty Wildtrack edition of the Ranger looks like a monster on the road. The vehicle gets wide body fenders and an impressive front grille. The orange Ranger looks extreme.
Seen here on the roads of Bengaluru, the Ranger looks like it is going for an adventure session with a boat on top and a trailer with an ATV at the back. The vehicle gets aftermarket alloys making it look great. The Ranger is powered by the same 3.2-litre engine that comes with the Endeavour. It generates 197 Bhp and 470 Nm of maximum torque.
Ford F-150 Supercrew
The Ford F-150 Supercrew is a monster truck on the road. It stands tall and looks intimidating even when it is parked. The SUV is from Mumbai and has been spotted quite often on roads. The all-black colour theme of the truck makes it look even more menacing on the road.
Even though the size is huge, it is powered by a relatively small 2.7-litre EcoBoost petrol engine. The turbocharged petrol engine produces a maximum of 325 Bhp and a high 507 Nm of maximum torque. There are even more powerful engines available in the American market but 325 Bhp seems more than sufficient for crowded Indian roads.
Mercedes-Benz G63 6X6
The Mercedes-Benz G63 SUV is a living legend. The performance arm of the German manufacturer launched a 6X6 version of the G63, and every car lover went bonkers over it. The car came to India through carnet but lived a celebrity life on the roads.
This particular monster has been re-trained by Brabus and it now produces massive 700 Bhp and 960 Nm. The power comes from a 5.5-litre V8 twin-turbocharged petrol engine. The Brabus-tuned G63 6X6 can easily put a terrifying image on anyone’s ORVM.
Even though Chevrolet was only present in the mass car segment in India, the brand has some badass trucks and SUVs internationally. This is the Silverado that came to India through carnet. This is the only Silverado that has been spotted in the Indian market till date, and it can dwarf biggies like Endeavour and Fortuner easily on the road.
The Silverado is available in quite a few versions and this one is a single-cab version that gets massive four tyres on the rear axle. The exact version of the pick-up truck is not mentioned but the Silverado gets various engine options including a relatively puny 4.3-litre V6 engine to a massive 6.6-litre V8 petrol engine.
