Mahindra Scorpio 2022 price and launch: new details emerge

Mahindra has been working on the next generation of Scorpios for almost three years now. The SUV’s test mules have been spotted in India and other countries as well. Now we now have more details regarding the 2022 Scorpio engine and pricing which are shared by Raven Avi to Team-BHP.

Media reports say Mahindra will follow the same timeline for the next-gen Scorpio that was followed for the Thar and XUV700. Thus, the new SUV will be presented on August 15 of next year, while the price reveal and reservations will begin on October 2, 2022. Deliveries of the Scorpio 2022 will begin from November 1.

That said, Mahindra could be prepping for the Scorpion 2022 premiere in June of next year. Indeed, Scorpio will celebrate its 20th anniversary in June of next year. Even if Mahindra brings forward the premiere, the rest of the launch schedule will remain the same. One of the reasons for this is the shortage of semiconductors. Mahindra already has a huge backlog of vehicles and if they open reservations for Scorpio 2022, the backlog could increase.

Motor and gearbox

Mahindra will offer the new generation Scorpio with two engine options. There would be a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with direct injection and a 2.2-liter diesel engine. Both engines are already in service on the Thar and XUV700 and are known for their refinement and power.

The diesel engine is expected to come in two tuning states, just like Mahindra does with the XUV700. Lower variants will produce 130 hp of maximum power. The power output is the same as the Thar, so we would expect the torque output to be around 300Nm or slightly more, considering the Scorpio is a bigger vehicle than the Thar. Lower variants will only be offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Higher variants will get a more powerful tuning state. It will produce 160 to 170 hp of max power. We have not yet experienced this state of agreement. We assume that the output torque for this tune could be around 360Nm. Indeed, the MX Trim of the XUV700 produces 360Nm with 155hp of maximum power. Higher variants will be offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.

The diesel engine will also come with a 4 × 4 transmission on the higher variants. There would be terrain modes and proposed driving modes. The engine and gearbox have been perfectly tuned for a smooth experience. In terms of handling, the 2022 Scorpio scored high even in 4 High and 4 Low modes while using the 4 × 4 system. The next-gen Scorpio has been extensively tested by the Mahindra Adventure team and the feedback is being provided. very positive.
