DesignEdit

The basic design is based on the Mahindra Armada Grand. The first-generation Bolero was equipped with a Peugeot 2.5 L (150 in3) IDI engine which produced 75 bhp (56 kW).[citation needed] The second generation was released with slightly modified exteriors (a larger grille being the most obvious change) and the major change was the engine, a 2.5 L (150 in3) in-house engine from Mahindra. It is powered by a 72 bhp (54 kW) 2,523 cc (154.0 cu in) turbo-charged direct injection diesel engine. In September 2011, the third generation Bolero was released, with a more thoroughly re-designed front with jewelled headlamps.[2] In India it is powered by the 63 bhp (47 kW) M2DiCR diesel engine with a "soft turbo", mated to a five-speed transmission.[2] This latest engine meets the Bharat IV emissions standards.

Models and trimsEdit

 
Mahindra Enforcer SC (pickup single-cab; Philippines)

The Bolero is offered in the Indian domestic market in the following trims:

  • EX – The "no frills" base model includes vinyl seats, basic digital instruments,and engine immobilization but lacks even the most rudimentary of modern conveniences such as power steering or air conditioning.
  • SLE – This trim replaces vinyl with a fabric/vinyl mix, and adds power steering, air conditioning, a heater, a second row center armrest,a remote fuel lid opener, and a spare wheel cover
  • SLX – Adds CD and MP3 capability, body color ORVM, a body color spare wheel cover insert,wood finish on the central console, power windows, central locking, keyless entry, and a 12-volt port.
  • ZLX – the top of the line ZLX trim adds the Mahindra Micro Hybrid System (similar to start/stop), a more advanced driver info system, exterior graphics, a rear windshield wiper, and VMS
  • The DI is similar to the EX trim but is fitted with the rugged DI engine. The EX, SLE, SLX and ZLX meanwhile are available with the M2DiCR low-cost common rail engine, which meets the BS IV emissions standards (required in 13 major Indian cities)
  • Bolero power+ – Powered by the mHAWKD70 engine, available in ZLX(top end) , SLX, SLE and LX variant. Main thing of Power+ is length and engine. Yes Mahindra trimmed 112mm, from old bolero length to 3995mm on front and rear bumpers and have replaced the old 2.5-litre four-cylinder m2DiCR engine with the 1.5 three-cylinder mHawkD70 diesel. New engine is producing more power (52.5 kilowatt/ 71hp and torque remains same 195nm) when compared to old school DI or M2DiCR engine(46.3 kilowatt/63hp). Other than that Mahindra didn't do any changes to interiors and exteriors.
