The all-new Thar will be most likely powered by a BS 6-complaint 2.2-litre mHawk engine. This unit will be made available in a standard 6-speed manual and 6-speed torque converter option. Besides the 2.2-litre option, new-gen Thar is also expected to get a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine.

Inside the cabin, the 2021 Thar will use a fresh layout for the dashboard, touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a MID screen in the instrument cluster, a manual AC, power-folding wing mirrors, multiple USB ports, new steering wheel, seats, and a reposition 4x4 lever. That said, another major update will be seen in the form of front facing seats in the second row. This will ensure more safety and space for the passengers at the back.

While the SUV was earlier said to arrive around mid-2020, the launch plans have now been delayed. It may launch in the later part of the year.
