On the mechanical front, the Thar facelift gets an auto-engaging differential lock for the rear axle, while it soldiers on with the 2.5-liter diesel engine. There are no changes to the engine which continues to produce 105 bhp at 3,800 rpm and 247 Nm of torque between 1,800-2,000 rpm, matched to a 5-speed manual transmission, with high- and low-range ratios.
An AC with heater is standard on the Thar CRDe. The cosmetic and mechanical changes are exclusive to the CRDe variant, and the DI continues without updates.
