Mahindra will launch the BS6 compliant Scorpio in India as soon as the lockdown is over. The updated model will derive power from a 2.0-litre diesel unit.
Mahindra and Mahindra Limited have officially revealed the specs of the BS6 Scorpio. The carmaker will launch the updated model as soon as the lockdown is lifted. The new BS6 Mahindra Scorpio will be offered with a BS6-compliant 2.0-litre diesel motor that produces 140bhp of power at 3,750 rpm and 320 Nm of peak torque at 1,500-2,800 rpm. Transmission duties will be handled by a 5-speed manual gearbox and an optional 6-speed manual transmission. Previously, Mahindra was offering the Scorpio with three BS4 powertrain options.

The first engine option was a 2.5-litre oil burner, which puts out 75bhp of power at 3,200 rpm and 200 Nm of torque 1,400-2,200 rpm. The engine comes coupled to 5-speed manual gearbox. The second engine option was a 2.2-litre oil-burner, which develops 120bhp of peak power at 4,000 rpm and 280 Nm of twisting force at 1,800-2,800 rpm, paired with a 5-speed transmission.
The third engine option, which has been carried over in a BS6 state, is that of a 2.2-litre diesel mill which churns out 140bhp at 3,750 rpm and 320 Nm of torque at 1,500-2,800 rpm. The 2.2-litre diesel motor can be had with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed manual transmission. The carmaker has also re-arranged the variant line-up of the BS6 Scorpio. Mahindra has removed the entry-level S3 trim and offers the updated SUV with S5, S7, S9 and S 11 variants. Moreover, there are a few changes made in the new model.

The BS6 Mahindra Scorpio S5 variant now employs lead-me-to-vehicle headlamps, and the top-spec S11 trim misses out shift-on-fly 4WD system option. The carmaker will soon reveal the prices of the updated model. In other news, Mahindra has started road testing of the new-gen Scorpio. The SUV is scheduled to hit the Indian market by the first half of next year. The all-new model is expected to derive power from a 2.0-litre mHawk diesel unit and a 1.5-litre mStallion T-GDi petrol engine.
