Trucks that have evolved from mere utilitarian vehicles to lifestyle essentials.
While the X-Class makes waves globally, in India we’ve witnessed a small number of pick-ups that offer car-like comfort in their double cabs, and promise thrills that no other segment can.
Isuzu D-Max V-Cross
Since its launch a few months ago, the vehicle has seen a growing fan-following, thereby proving a promising start for the vehicle and for the segment as a whole. Under the hood, the Isuzu is powered by a 2.5-litre diesel four-cylinder unit that churns out a good a 135bhp of power and 320Nm of torque. All of this comes mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.

This lifestyle offering from Tata Motors was launched with a lot of ambition. The vehicle, while widely used as commercial pick up, is primarily designed to be an off-beat lifestyle mobility option, especially in the double cab variant. Powering the Xenon is a 2.1-litre diesel unit that produces 140bhp of power and is mated to a five-speed auto gear box. The Xenon is offered in both RWD as well as AWD versions. Rs 10.22 lakh (ex-Chennai)
Mahindra Bolero Camper Gold VX
In its contemporary Gold VX variant, the Bolero Camper pick-up gets stylish decals and the signature Mahindra grille. It comes equipped with a 2.5-litre diesel engine that churns out 83bhp of power and 176Nm of torque. Transmission duties are handled by a five-speed manual unit.
