Launching the Tata Sumo Gold, Ashesh Dhar, Head – Utility Vehicles Product Group, Tata Motors said: “The Tata Sumo Gold is a result of extensive consumer studies and field tests. The product has been designed to fulfill various requirements, long-awaited by the new generation customer".
At the heart of every Tata Sumo Gold, lies a growling engine that thumps out vicious power. The Tata Sumo Gold goes a step ahead in putting the reins of power in their patron's hands, by letting them choose from two powerhouses, that suits his driving experience, delivering the best-in-class acceleration, power and an excellent torque aided pick-up and pull power.
CR4 Turbo - BS4: Symbolising a new elevated state of automobile engineering, the all-new CR4 Turbo engine brings fresh blood to a lineage of powerful engines. This 2956 cc determined powerhouse delivers an output of 85 Ps @ 3000 rpm and a torque of 250 Nm @ 1000 to 2000rpm. With a stunning mileage of 14.7 kmpl, this engine is one giant leap ahead of the rest, in its league.
Di Turbo BS3: Bringing years of know-how to a lineage of power is the Di Turbo engine. This 2956 cc engine is all-muscle, generating an output of 70 PS @ 3000 rpm and a torque of 225 Nm @ 1600 to 2000 rpm. Its sheer size and heft makes the Di Turbo the largest sized diesel engine. This engine delivers an impressive mileage of 14.3kmpl.
The Tata Sumo Gold has an imposing poise, broad stable stance and a visual blitzkrieg of stylish body graphics. A new headlight design works in tandem with a prominent tail lamp cluster, high power forward and rear fog lamps, to light up the path. A renewed front grill, wide rear with a clean back and a spare wheel below the cabin, add not only to its dominant presence but also to its functionality. Large 15’/ 16’ wheels with wide 215 mm / 185 mm radial tyres and a high ground clearance of 190 mm completes the Tata Sumo Gold’s aggressive looks.
The Tata Sumo Gold is as refined on the inside as it is muscular on the outside. A leather wrapped steering wheel, with hydraulic power assistance, puts the driver in absolute control. A stylish centre silver console and a dashboard are thoughtfully located so that reaching out for them is almost instinctive. Plush fabrics add a touch of sophistication, to the spacious interiors, as excellent head, leg and shoulder space makes room for all passengers.
The new Tata Sumo Gold is being launched in 4 variants - GX, EX, LX and CX - along with a warranty of three years or 1,00,000 kms, whichever is earlier. The Tata Sumo Gold range will be available from Rs. 5.46 lakh onwards (Ex-Showroom, Chennai). For more details of the report, visit
