Mahindra Introduces refreshed MY2020 PikUp
May, 4th 2020 Brisbane: Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., a part of the US $ 20.7 billion Mahindra Group, today launched the refreshed MY2020 Mahindra PikUp under its fully-owned subsidiary – Mahindra Automotive Australia Pty Ltd (MAAPL).
The ever dependable, tough and value for money Mahindra PikUp has been updated for 2020 with a raft of refinements, including new signature front grille that enhances its tough signature stance, contemporary static bending projection headlamps and daylight running LEDs, with new fog light assembly.
The New Generation Pik-Up comfortably takes both city and tough off-road tracks in its stride with its benchmark 34-degree approach angle. The sturdy and heavy-duty ladder frame chassis can carry a payload of up to 1095 kgs with a 2.5 tonnes braked towing capacity.
The 103 KW, 2.2 Litre common rail intercooled turbo diesel engine produces a peak torque of 320 Nm. With a robust design in collaboration with AVL Austria and backed by Bosch Engine Management system, the mHawk engine provides proven reliability and unrivalled fuel efficiency. The engine valve train is driven by a twin timing chain system, so no expensive belts to replace under maintenance. The 6-speed smooth shift manual gearbox with Dana Spicer axels and Eaton self-locking differential adds to the driving pleasure both on city roads and tough off-road tracks.
The original Mahindra PikUp launched in Australia in 2007 has been plying the roads and back country of Australia for thirteen years. With thousands of Mahindra PikUps sold to Australian customers, the PikUp has built a trusted and solid reputation as a reliable, rugged and value for money ute for the Australian market. Over 500,000 PikUps & Scorpio SUVs have been sold globally since the launch of the original Scorpio in 2002. To that end, Mahindra conducted their first PikUp owners event – Mahindra Adventure – on the iconic Fraser Island for Mahindra PikUp 4×4 owners, https://youtu.be/2VXE0S0RR_I Future Mahindra Adventure events with Mahindra owners each year.
Mahindra products offer, proven reliability, function and value for money. The upgrade, with its aggressively styled exteriors and plush interiors includes a complete overhaul of the Mahindra PikUp’s aesthetics, with specific emphasis on the front-end styling. The vehicle comes in two specification levels, S6+, which provides function & value and the S10+, which offers an SUV-like-specification yet remains within the identity of the Mahindra PikUp’s rugged and reliable legacy. S6+ now features standard cruise control, Bluetooth phone connection an upgraded fabric seats including arm rests and drivers side height adjustment. S10+ features upgraded 7inch touch screen with high resolution reverse camera and Satellite Navigation as standard.

Mahindra continue to provide vehicles for astute fleet buyers in mining, construction and government applications.
The refinement and tough and durable approach often not words used in the same sentence, but apply here, really challenge customers to think beyond their own boundaries. Mahindra PikUp does everything it says it will at a price point that is unattainable by many other utes on the market. With very few options left in the Single Cab segment of the light commercial market we challenge the Mahindra PikUp will #beatyourexpectations.
