Default What? No love for the TR20?

Register to stop seeing this ad!

I got a wife and two kids, won't work.
I wish I could pick one up just to leave at the cabin.

I wish they'd make a "TR30" with a 2-door extended cab and a 6 foot bed!

I agree. I’m a cab-and-a-half kind of guy. Maybe down the road we’ll see a long wheelbase version with an extended cab and a long box.

For today, I gave the TR20 some love and posted up the sparse spec sheet for the ‘two door truck’.

Ok. I'll put my hand into the box.

I want the TR20. It's just me and the dog. I want the 7.5 ft bed to haul my kayak around to go fishing and the 4X4 to drive on the beach.

I really hope that they do not remove the tie downs. It doesn't look like they have any other way to tie a load down.

+1 to that. The tie downs were something of a trade-off on the early Japanese pickups because those trucks didn't have "stake pockets" on the sides of the bed, which are also useful for a lot of stuff. The current Mahindra doesn't appear to have either.

Default Hug for TR20

There, not quite love, but a hug for the TR20. A supercab, cabplus, extended cab or whatever you want to call it would be my choice. I'll usually carry me and some stuff. Occasionally me, the dog and some stuff. More rarely me, the dog, the wife and some stuff. And very rarely a 'kid', though my kids are grown and spread to the four winds. I'd go with the TR20, but the wife won't let me 'cause she doesn't want to compete with the dog for the passenger seat. So I would have to take the TR40, but I wish it had a 6' box.

If it turns out I can't get one into Canada I'll get a Ranger supercab and curse the poor mileage.

Thumbs up more cargo and less cushion

For me, the TR-20 is just the thing- I'd just fill up a big cab with alot of clutter. I'd put a camper shell on the back to keep the weather and stray hands off my tools and work, with a sliding rear window for when I need to carry long pieces of moulding (like sixteen footers). There are times when I go off-road for a hiking or camping trip and it would be nice to have extra room for a couple friends to ride and 4wd for when it dumps snow and ice on us, but 99% of the time two seats and 2wd will take care of it just fine. I'm looking forward to having 7.5 feet of cargo bed, too bad plywood is 8 ft, though. I've never wanted to be saddled with a full size truck when it comes to driving it around town and keeping gas in it. I have noticed, though that the fuel economy estimates for Mahindra keep dropping (along with the power of the engine)- they used to say a combined number over 30mpg. Still no EPA test results? When I first heard about these I was ready to run out and buy one right away, I'm still interested but now I want to see the facts.

Default likely

I will more than likely end up with a 2 wheel drive single cab.

I would like an extended cab with long bed and 4x4.

I suspect the 2 wheel version will get high economy but the added features will begin dragging everything down. I also suspect as the truck becomes more Americanized it will become less than it could be.

I also will want to wait and see but will remain open and optimistic as to what will happen.

If the price is right I will move to a 4 door cab as children will be involved.

I have to have an extended or crew cab for all the crap and people I tote around.
But I'd rather have that 7 & 1/2 foot bed that's on the single cab.
Mahindra, some of folks actually use our trucks.
