It’ll be a new generation Scorpio with absolutely newly designed exteriors and new techs.
The popular Mahindra Scorpio ladder-on-frame SUV’s new version is undergoing testing for a while, and now the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio launch is assumed to be near. Mahindra and Mahindra have also confirmed that the Mahindra XUV 700 will be revealed/launched in the second quarter of 2021 (if the lockdown will lift off). But in Scorpio’s terms, there are currently no dates, and timelines have officially been revealed by the manufacturer, but the launch could be placed by the end of 2021 or early 2022.
“No official announcement about the launch date but expected to take placed at end of 2021 or early 2022”
2022 Mahindra Scorpio Exterior
Being a new generation, it’ll be completely different from the existing one but inspired by it. The overall shape is still boxy and remembers us of the current one. But if we talk about design, on the front it has a large grille with six chrome vertical lines, big boxy headlights with a dual projector setup, and LED DRLs. The side will be impacted with 18-inched grey finished alloy wheels with think rubbers, lower body cladding, functional roof rails, and a large glass area on the windows. At last on the rear, we could get LED tail lamps, bumper reflectors, chrome skid plate, and a high-mounted tail lamp.
“The Design will feature a new SUV with LED Headlamps, Large grille, 18-inches alloy wheels and much more”
2022 Mahindra Scorpio Interior
The interior dashboard layout will be packed greatly with chrome touches on even every toggle switch and center console outer lining. However, it gives a glimpse of the old one at some points but the otherwise is all new. The main highlighting point in the interior is the center console, it has a new 10.0 inches (Approx) touchscreen infotainment system surrounded by vertical air blowers on the left & right, and below that, it has some shortcut buttons for the infotainment unit with volume toggle nob.
The complete central console is finished in piano black which looks great and enhances the overall cabin feel. Other than it, it has also a new steering wheel with a switch for infotainment devices, related to the instrumental cluster, cruise control, mainstream media control buttons and a voice assist switch.
Now the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio Launch will come with a front-facing third row of seats. Being a boxy shape, the third row now gets more space to adapt to the occupants more comfortably. The mule which we have spotted looks bigger now, which indicates to us the more spacious cabin and with more space, more comfort will come.
“Interior is plush, has ample techies and now has a front-facing third row of seats”
2022 Mahindra Scorpio Expected Engine and Transmission
The recently launched Mahindra Thar has got a new 2.0-liter, petrol motor name mStallion that produces around 150 BHP of power. So it is expected that the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio Launch will come with a 2.0-liter, Stallion petrol motor, and a 2.2-liter, mHawk diesel motor with a more powerful tuning setup. In terms of transmission, it’ll be available with both 6-Speed manual and 6-Speed automatic.
Here one thing is still a mystery, is Mahindra will launch the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio in a 4×4 drivetrain? The answer is YES! The diesel 2.2-liter motor will come with a 4×4 drivetrain in the 2022 Scorpio top model but the transmission is still unrevealed.
“Will be equipped with Thar’s engine but in a more powerful state, 4×4 will come with Diesel variant”
