Powering the MG Gloster is a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder diesel engine that comes with 8-speed automatic transmission. Now this engine too can be had in two different versions. The lower ‘Super’ and ‘Smart’ variants use only one turbocharger and hence produce 163 hp and 375 Nm of torque, and are rear-wheel drive.
The upper variants, ‘Sharp’ and ‘Savvy’, get this engine with two turbochargers and a result make 218 hp and 480 Nm of torque, and get on-demand 4WD system. The 8-speed auto transmission will be a eShifter.
The MG Gloster SUV will compete against the Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner and the Mahindra Alturas G4. However, MG will be aiming to attract customers looking for large cabin space, a longer list of equipment and comprehensive features including the likes of adaptive cruise control.
