The Scorpio BS 6 will source power from a single engine option which will be a 2.2-litre diesel unit. This engine is known to churn out 140 PS of power at 3,750 rpm and 320 Nm of torque at 1,500-2,800 rpm. It will be available with either a 5- or a 6-speed manual transmission. No automatic has been confirmed.
In comparison, the previous model was available in three BS 4 compliant engine options - a 2.5-litre diesel which produced 75 PS and 200 Nm, a 2.2-litre diesel unit which churned 120 PS and 280 Nm and the most powerful option included a 2.2-litre diesel engine which pushed out 140 PS and 320 Nm. The transmission options available were a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed manual unit.
Apart from a BS 6 compliant engine, the company has also rejigged the variant line-up of the SUV. The previously available S3 variant has been discontinued, and the new Scorpio will be featured only in the S5, S7, S9 and S11 variants. While the carried-over variants are almost similar as before, the only minor changed is the introduction of lead-me-to-vehicle headlamps in the S5 variant. Also, the S11 variant has now lost the shift-on-fly 4WD system.
