Tata Motors is gearing up for its highly anticipated SUV Tata Nexon. Designed at Tata Motors’ in-house facility in Pune, the Company has added two new engines to its powertrain portfolio – the 1.2L Turbocharged Petrol from the Revotron series and the 1.5L Diesel engine from the Revotorq family. These new generation engines will debut in the company’s new offering, NEXON, which is scheduled for launch this festive season.
The Revotron petrol engine will be manufactured at the Sanand facility and will churn out 108 bhp and 170 Nm of peak torque. The Revotorq diesel engine will be produced at the Ranjangaon facility and the 4 cylinder engine will churn out 108 bhp and 260 Nm of peak torque.
The car will offer three driving modes – Eco, City and Sport. Both the engines on the new Tata Nexon will be paired to the 6-speed TA6300 synchromesh with overdrive manual transmission. When launched the new Tata Nexon will compete with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Ford Ecosport.
