BS VI compliant engine and 9-speed automatic transmission
The 2.0-litre, 170 HP, 350 Nm turbodiesel engine has additional technology that makes it fully BS VI compliant nearly one year before the norms become effective. This BS VI engine is more refined, and uses an urea system to meet the new norms. It also makes it capable to run even on BS IV diesel, until BS VI diesel is widely available in the country. Until then, Trailhawk can be driven to the remotest part of the country with complete peace of mind, without worrying about the quality of diesel as the engine is designed to self-cleanse, without any external intervention.
The Trailhawk is optimally tuned for both urban traffic and challenging off-road driving conditions. Its all-new 9-speed automatic transmission is finely tuned to deliver a progressively torquey drive with seamless gear changes. The performance is particularly impressive when driven in the 1750 – 2500 rpm band.
