Reacting to the video, Anand Mahindra said Bolero's capability has been reaching new highs. Taking to social media, Mahindra wrote, “They sum up why the founders of Mahindra decided to build off-road vehicles in independent India. They were meant to go where no paths existed & clear the way for others to follow." Mahindra and Mahindra is known to manufacture SUVs that are capable of tackling tough roads. Besides Bolero, the carmaker also offers its flagship models like Thar, XUV700 and Scorpio-N SUVs which offer off-road capabilities.

Bolero three-row SUV, which is quite popular as in rural India as well as in the hills, has been the highest selling model from Mahindra and Mahindra for several years now.

Bolero is not as feature-loaded as some of the other new generation Mahindra models. However, it has maintained its core fanbase for exactly the same reason - being more practical and versatile with more space to carry people or luggage. It is powered by a 1.5-litre mHawk75 turbo diesel engine. Mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, it offers peak output of 75 bhp and peak torque of 210 Nm.

Mahindra and Mahindra is scheduled to upgrade the Bolero SUV in coming days. The new Bolero is going to be reportedly based on the same platform as the new Scorpio-N launched last year. It is also expected to get the same ladder-on-frame chassis and updated design in its new generation.
