Divorce is like a car warranty.. Three years and 36,000 miles is good, but 5years and 50,000 miles is better.

Diesel engines weigh more, and it has been said the steel is thicker which will equal more weight.Also with the load these thing are said to be able to carry the spring packs will be heavy.The axles will have to be heavy.The transmission will weigh more.The tires will probably be a lt tire instead of a car tire so they will be heavy.
Tires 5 lbs each 25 lbs
Trans Guess 100 lbs
Axle Guess 100 lbs
Spring pack 25 lbs 50 lbs
Thicker steel 200 lbs
Diesel engine 300 lbs

All these numbers are guesstamation of course but I came up with nearly 800 lbs and didnt include a heavy frame, large fuel tank,,,,,,,,,,,

Default Bmw 335d

The BMW 335D has a curb weight of 3820 pounds and is rated at 36 mpg highway, and gets 40 mpg highway according to consumer reports. At first I was very disaapointed to see the weight, but now I am more optimistic, though I still wonder about city mpg.

At 4400 lbs that seems pretty light to me. My 1985 Mitsubishi had a curb weight of 3100 lbs. But if you think about it, the Mahindra is physically larger than the compact trucks of the past

Mitsu
Length 184"
Width 55"
Hieght 62"


Mahindra
Length 207"
Width 70"
Heigth 72"

Both truck have 7'+ bed lengths and 4wd. Just off the top of my head I would say the Mahindra is 20-30% bigger all around so hence the weight, not to mention all the safety equipment. At 4400 lbs it seem pretty light. Oh, I forgot to mention the Mitsu only had a payload of 1422 lbs and MPG figures are identical to what Mahindra is reporting.

Just keep the Ex Wife out and you can keep the weight down

Honestly from other things I have read over the last couple of years the trucks are built heavy duty with cast iron components much thicker than the competition. I bet there is at least 200-300 lbs of just reinforced components compared to peers. I bet with mileage being so important that the next generation of trucks switches some materials out for something lighter weight.

Still 4400 lbs is a far cry from 5000+ for a 150/1500 series truck.

I talked to a man last night who just bought a new farm tractor after 2 years of researching them. I asked if he looked at a Mahindra (knowing he lives near a dealer).. He went into detail of why he didn't buy one. Some of the thing he said were that Mahindra is flooding the tractor market with outdated junk. He also said the reason they keep putting off the truck is cause it is junk. Said it will be like owning a Vega...
