In this edition of the tug of war, we have two completely different products. But the common link between them is their 4×4 drivetrains.
Have you wondered who would win the tug of war between the Toyota Fortuner 4×4 and Mahindra Bolero Camper 4×4? Well, it is time to find out. Fortuner is the most popular full-size off-roader in our market. It has posted consistent sales in its every generation. With the departure of its arch-rival, Ford Endeavour, from the Indian market, it rules the charts solely. On the other hand, the Boleo Camper is the most popular pickup truck in rural and semi-urban environments. People use it for all kinds of applications including a pickup truck, off-roading vehicle and people-mover.
