With months in anticipation it is now being assumed that Mahindra will reveal Ssangyong Rexton and Ssangyong Korando crossover at the upcoming 2012 Auto Expo. Since Rexton is a much bigger SUV than Korando, it is believed that Korando will be launched first somewhere in 2012 followed by Rexton.

The car was spotted near Nashik with registered number plate. It was not a surprise as Mahindra’s assembly facility is in Nashik and one of the officials could be using it.

On the technical front, Rexton is expected to come equipped with a 2.7 litre turbocharged CRDI diesel engine powerful enough to develop 184 BHP of max power and a whopping 402 Nm of peak torque. The engine will be coupled with a 5 speed manual transmission while an automatic transmission option will be made available later.

As far as the pricing is concerned being a larger and upmarket SUV it could be priced well above Rs.17 Lakh rupees.
