Re: New SsangYong Rexton - Teasers Released
Here it comes the all new Rexton in updated Avatar was revealed to the general public at Busan Auto show Dubbed the 2012 Rexton W, The Rexton W, apart from getting a big cosmetic facelift also comes with a more fuel efficient turbo diesel engine which is an all new engine that has been developed by Ssangyong with a particular focus on punchy low end torque for good driveability.Called the e-XDi200 Active Turbo Diesel engine, the motor displaces 1,998cc and comes in an inline four cylinder layout. The engine features a variable geometry turbocharger and a common rial direct injection system to pump out a peak power of 154 Bhp while peak torque is rated at 360 Nm. Crucially, this torque is available all the way from a low 1,500 rpm, in a wide rev band of up to 2,800 rpm. Also, right from idle, the engine delivers 190 Nm of torque, which is one of its biggest selling points as driveability will be terrific with that kind of low end torque.
The engine conforms to Euro V emission norms and is capable of being upgraded to Euro VI norms. Ssangyong also has a twin turbocharger variant of this engine that is much more powerful with 225 Bhp and 500 Nm being the power and torque outputs respectively. However, the SUV maker intends to use this engine in a high performance luxury saloon for now. Coming back to the Rexton W SUV, the looks of this butch off roader mirror the teasers that were released a week ago. The front end sees a big revision with new bumper, new grille, headlamps and day time running lamps.
The rear too is completely redesigned. While we’re yet to take a look at the interiors, the press material suggests that Ssangyong has worked on the dashboard by infusing it with a dash of chrome to make it look more premium. Also, the Rexton W’s interiors have been upgraded to endow the SUV with the feel and comfort of a luxury sedan. The SUV also gets a boat load of safety and convenience features including ESP, ARP (Active Roll over Protection), TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System), UWS (Ultrasonic Warning System) , a smart key system, eco cruise control, Rain sensor wipers, etc. The Rexton W will go on sale in the Korean market by June 2012, the same month when it will be launched along with pricing details. On whether Mahindra will launch this SUV in India remains to be seen.
It does not look as handsome as the pics which was released prior to this unveiling, But never the less its much more palatable than the previous version,and the new engine spec's sheet look's very promising i am sure these engine's will also make it our Mahindra's Vehicles.
Some more pic's will be added later on.
