Written by Nizam Shaikh

Mahindra has launched the new Karoo Dusk pick-up truck in the South African market with a price tag of ZAR 549,999, which roughly converts to INR 27.45 lakh ex-showroom. The Mahindra Karoo pick-up is based on the Scorpio platform and comes with 4×2 and 4×4 drivelines. The pick-up truck is currently not available in the Indian market. But if Mahindra plans to retail the Karoo Dusk in India, it will compete with the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross.

The Mahindra Karoo Dusk comes with features such as a matte black exterior paint with rugged front and rear bumpers. The SUV also comes with all-terrain tyres and an imposing front fascia offering an intimidating look. The pick-up comes with an air-intake on the bonnet, sleek headlamps, gills on the front fender and robust dual-tone alloy wheels. The Karoo Dusk also comes with black finish step-boards and a roll-over hoop on the pick-up bed.
