@Raja - You are right. The standard
warranty is for 3 years & 100,000 Km - which ever is earlier. With the extended
warranty, the Tata Sumo Gold has a 4 year warranty - i.e 36 Months + 12 months / 150000 kms whichever occurs earlier. See Tata Motors Customer Care :: Must Know
@konkantrip - I would recommend the Sumo Gold GX (not FX or any lower version) over the Bolero ZLX
for the following reasons -
(a) More Space, Great middle seats and the last Front Facing benches (on a 9 seater) can actually seat 4 adults (6 feel tall). If you don't need the last row seats - then you can fold up for more luggage space
(b) Better A/C with middle row vents & more cooling comfort for your resort customers especially AFTER September through May.
(c) Bigger engine @ 3000 cc with better power at 85 BHP (@3000 rpm); better torque - 250Nm at 1000-2000 rpm (for GX model) - more pulling power at very low speeds. The Bolero engine specs are much lower; Torque @ 195 NM @ 1400-2200RPM & a 62 PS BHP @ 3200 rpm. See these websites for official specs. Bolero

(d) Lower turning radius (5 metres) which is boon in Konkan
(f) The new clutch (on GX @ 260 mm) is long lasting upto1 Lakh Km
(g) Better extended warranty than Bolero - 4 year warranty - i.e 36 Months + 12 months / 150000 kms whichever occurs earlier
(h) Almost same price as Bolero ZLX. A little less than 8.5 Lakhs on the road (OTR) for GX model - in Pune.
Please stay away from the CX, EX & LX models. These models do not get these new improvements.
The press release from 19 June 2013 has very specific details on the new model. All of these improvements are available in GX model. A subset are available in the FX model. 2013 Tata Sumo Gold Press Release
