After a lengthy legal battle and a tentative re-design, the Mahindra Roxor side-by-side off-road vehicle is back on sale in America, with MSRP starting at $19,999 for the base model and $27,899 for the All-Weather model. Both are available either with gloss red or gloss black body paint.
The Roxor no longer looks like a CJ or a 40 Series Land Cruiser; I guess it now looks pretty unique, but not so “pretty”—if you know what I mean. But either way, I’m glad that the Roxor doesn’t have to deal with legal issues anymore. The All-Weather model gets a composite cab enclosure, a polycarbonate windshield, windshield wiper kit, vintage HVAC, a Warn winch, a different bumper, D-ring brackets, 16-inch aluminium wheels wrapped with Goodyear Wrangler Trailrunner AT tyres, and a few more.
The Roxor continues to be powered by a 2.5-litre (2,490 cc) turbocharged diesel engine with 46 kW (62 bhp) and 195 Nm (144 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. That’s right, the 6-speed automatic is no longer available. The 4WD variants get a 2-speed transfer case. The off-roader can do a top speed of 88 km/h (55 mph).
