The new mStallion 4-cylinder TGDI unit claims to be the most powerful Mahindra engine ever.
At the ongoing 2020 Auto Expo in Delhi, Mahindra has introduced an all-new range of turbo-gasoline-direct-injection (TGDI) petrol engines that will power future Mahindra models.
Under the nomenclature mStallion, the range includes 3 engines – a 1.2-litre, a 1.5-litre and a 2.0-litre engine. At 190 PS and 380 Nm of torque, the 2.0-litre engine is the most powerful Mahindra engine till date. This engine will also be available in a lower 150 PS/300 Nm tune. It might be offered in the next-gen Thar, XUV500 and Scorpio. The mStallion will be mated to an all-new 6-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed automatic from Aisin. The 1.2 TGDI develops 130hp and 230 Nm of torque, while the 1.5 develops 163 PS and 280 Nm of torque.
Other engines in Mahindra’s petrol line-up include the 23hp, 625cc, single-cylinder petrol motor (for commercial application in the Jeeto), the mFalcon (G12), 1.2-litre, three-cylinder MPFI that powers the KUV100 and in turbo guise, powers the XUV300.
In hopes to achieve the best NVH standards, the mStallion gets a dual-mass flywheel, a single drive belt for all the ancillaries, a very rigid, short-skirt crankcase and a resonator on the turbocharger. Additionally, the mStallion employs a lot of lightweight bits like a plastic cam cover, and a plastic intake manifold.
