Tata Motors and local distribution Fusion Automotive has given its new Australian audience a taste of a potential upgrade to its incoming Xenon pickup this week.

The Xenon “Tuff Truck” has an Australian flavour to it as well, with styling carried out by the head of design at Holden Special Vehicles, Julian Quincey.

The Tuff Truck adds a big bag of off-road essentials, including roof-mounted driving lights, winch, snorkel and (slightly less essential) 20-inch wheels with (rather essential) mud-terrain tyres.

Fusion has revealed the concept this week to coincide with the news of its regular Xenon ute, which will hit the local market in October.

While it is unlikely that Tata will put the Tuff Truck into production - at least not immediately - some of the accessories adorning it may become available with the regular Xenon ute range, when it launches.

Tata will initially offer the regular Xenon as its only model in Australia, powered by a 2.2 litre turbo-diesel engine producing 110kW and 320Nm, mated to a five-speed manual transmission. No auto option will be offered at this stage.

The Indian carmaker hasn’t ruled out introducing passenger cars to the range next year, but the famous Tata Nano is unlikely to join the local line-up.
