As a transportation solution during the perennial floods in the Philippines, Mahindra has launched an ‘almost flood-proof’ variant of the Mahindra Enforcer pick up (an older edition of the Bolero pickup), built in India. It is available in both single cab and double cab variants, and is priced between PHP 680,000 to PHP 875,000.
The idea is to give confidence to business owners for transporting goods during any weather condition, including knee-level flooding on streets. It comes fitted with a vertical snorkel and an anti-roll bar to tackle the tricky conditions. The Enforcer Floodbuster also comes with black headlamps surrounds and grille, which helps to further differentiate it from the regular Enforcer.
The Mahindra Enforcer is powered by a 2.5L turbodiesel four-cylinder engine that produces 100 hp at 3,800 rpm and 240 Nm at 1,800 rpm. It is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox that sends power to the rear wheels. A 4×4 drivetrain is available as an option in both single cab and double cab variants.
