After launching 24 new models at its National Dealer Meeting in Indianapolis earlier this month, Mahindra has rebranded its utility vehicle product line as the Mahindra Retriever, to create a strong identity in the industry for these best-in-class off-road vehicles.
“The new line-up of Mahindra Retrievers was well-received at our National Dealer Meeting and we are excited to bring them to market beginning in late 2017. We have built on the strong foundation of the current Mahindra utility vehicles, adding higher horsepower engines and unmatched comfort to a solid workhorse vehicle. The result is a work-ready, family-approved machine to help our customers get their work done in comfort,” said Cleo Franklin, CMO/VP-Strategic Planning, Mahindra NA.
The Mahindra Retriever comes in single-row, crew and long-bed models in both gas and diesel powertrains. The vehicles are available in red, green and Realtree AP camouflage with standard or industry-exclusive Flexhauler cargo boxes. While all the work capabilities of the past Mahindra utility vehicles remain, there are several styling enhancements made in the new Retriever models:
- New dash with 4.3” digital gauge
- Automotive style LED headlights
- Front brushguard with bull bar
- Deluxe bucket-style seating
- Redesigned steering wheel & shifter knob
- New wheel design
The new Mahindra Retriever utility vehicles will be sold in the U.S. and Canada beginning in November 2017. All Mahindra utility vehicles are backed by a three-year powertrain warranty. Even though the name is changing, the Mahindra Retriever still offers the rugged, work-ready features of previous models 1,200 pounds hauling capacity, 2,100 pounds towing capacity, 12 inch ground clearance, 19 inch of cab entry space, standard electric cargo box dump, and standard front and rear receiver hitches.
