Mahindra's Pik-Up, Comming to America!

Many of us have seen this, but it looks like DTG is going to need another manufacturer section!

Mahindra is to start selling their 2 and 4 door DIESEL pickups in the USA early next year (February?)

http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2009/08...el-pik-up.html

The article indicates they are a really decent vehicle, since Ford apparently has no interest in filling the small pickup diesel market (the only OEM left marketing a small pickup) they will be handing it, on a silver platter, to Mahindra.

Yes they also make tractors. I don't know how the body will hold up, the quality looks like the old Datsun trucks that would rust if you sneezed on them, but I don't know for sure.

Why farm half when you can FARMALL!

Give fools their gold, and knaves their power;
Let fortune's bubbles rise and fall;
Who sows a field, or trains a flower,
Or plants a tree, is more than all.- Whittier.

Yup, not sure on the specifics, but Mahindra is actually a well regarded brand in ROW.
