This customized Tata Sierra pick-up looks badass and all-set to counter some rough surfaces. The modification job is done by Nu Yard Customs.
It’s quite rare to spot India’s first-ever compact SUV - the Tata Sierra - on the road nowadays. Here’s the pick-up truck version of the Tata, unlike anything we’ve never seen one. This mod job has been done by Nu Yard Customs and the Sierra pick-up looks all-set to tackle some badass surfaces. Talking about the changes, this vehicle has been chopped, which sees the rear dropping the hardtop and seats to make way for a loading bed. The front fascia continues to feature a twin-set layout, and the car gets a single-cab design. The exhaust pipes are now positioned behind the front single cab. The customized pick-up now also features bulky mud-terrain tyres with a lift kit that offer good street presence.
The addition of the oddly shaped wheel arches looks quite inappropriate, otherwise, the design of the pick-up looks very smart and muscular. Talking about a few other modifications, this customized Tata Sierra pick-up gets aftermarket front and rear bumpers with a massive nudge bar upfront. The front profile of the pick-up also features new headlamp housing, redesigned grille, massive hood scoop and a farm jack mounted at the top of the bonnet. This customized Tata Sierra also features a snorkel, but we’re not sure if it works.
For better illumination, it also gets LED bar light mounted on the roof of the car. Mechanically, the stock Tata Sierra was powered by a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated turbocharged diesel motor, which churns out 68bhp of peak power and 90bhp of twisting force.
The SUV was offered in rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive variants. On the side, it also gets a jerry can, which gives a contrasting shade to the pick-up. Early this year at the Auto Expo 2020, the automaker also showcased the Sierra EV concept. It was one of the biggest attention grabbers at the carmaker’s pavilion. Tata called it the Sierra EV and is based on the company’s IMPACT 2.0 design language. The production-spec Sierra is expected to hit the Indian shores by 2022. Once launched, it’ll compete with the likes of Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.
