This Mahindra Scorpio pickup truck is pure MUSCLE

Mahindra sells the facelifted Scorpio Getaway pickup truck in South Africa, under the Scorpio Pik Up brand name. Here’s one such truck that has been tastefully modified to look absolutely mean and muscular. The vehicle in question gets a slew of minimal but tasteful changes, enough to make it look absolutely menacing. It’s currently on sale in South Africa. Here’s a quick walkaround on the various changes effected on this Mahindra.

The front end gets a new metal bumper that completely transforms the vehicle’s character, from being one of a regular pickup truck to something that screams aggression. There’s a black wrap on the hood that adds to the overall muscular character of this vehicle. At the rear, the bumper is an all-metal unit, replete with a tow hook, again adding to the purposeful nature of this vehicle.

Other changes in the vehicle include Cooper Discoverer all-terrain tyres shod with alloy wheels and a working snorkel. The Scorpio pickup truck that has been customised is a single cab unit. What this means is, it has space for two adults. The Scorpio pickup truck sold in South Africa gets a four-wheel drive layout, ABS and twin airbags as optional extras. It’s also available in a twin cab layout, which accommodates five people in the cabin.

Talking of the engine, this particular vehicle is powered by a 2.2 litre-4 cylinder mHawk unit with 140 Bhp of peak power and 320 Nm of peak torque. Notably, the same tune has been recently introduced in the Scorpio Facelift sold in India. This engine is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox that drives the rear wheels. The optional four-wheel drive system operates through a shift-on-the-fly rotary knob placed on the center console. While Mahindra is yet to launch the facelifted Scorpio pickup truck, aka the Getaway, in India, it’s just a matter of time before this pickup truck arrives here, to take on the hot selling Isuzu V-Cross.
