Thanks to our reader Kailash, we're able to bring you visuals of the single cab Mahindra Xylo pickup up-close. Take a look at the new spyshots, and you'll observe a lot has changed on the Xylo, especially at the front with a pair of new headlamps, bumper and grille. The Xylo pickup's nose will differ heavily, whether this has got to do with image preservation of the Xylo is anybody's guess.
The Mahindra emblem has migrated to the hood and there are two giant lamp housings on the bonnet. The radiator grille is different, there is no chrome or saw tooth here.
Spotted on the highway, the Xylo pickup was stripped of almost all but the essential features. This is a test mule, but it won't take a rocket scientist to derive that the production pickup will retain the Xylo's dashboard and seats.
We expect to see Mahindra's 2.5-liter CRDi engine on the pickup making slightly lesser power and torque than the Xylo. We hope the loading bay will be more stylish. We hope Mahindra positions this vehicle as a lifestyle pickup, which might not necessarily make good business sense.
