The recently introduced Mahindra Marazzo MPV in India makes its debut in the USA at the ongoing Detroit Motor Show. The vehicle was showcased alongside the US-spec Roxor utility vehicle.

The Roxor is exclusively sold in the US as an off-road vehicle and based on the Thar in India. The vehicle is powered by a 2.5-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 61bhp of power. The engine mated a five-speed manual gearbox sends power to all four-wheels. The Marazzo is powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel four-cylinder engine developing 121bhp at 3500rpm and 300Nm of torque from as low as 1750rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
Mahindra has not revealed any plans of launching the Marazzo for the US market. The Roxor is manufactured at the company’s facility in Detroit.
