When we last met the Mahindra Roxor, it was roughly a year ago at the 2019 North American International Auto Show. The Roxor was created to help give buyers on the open range a very interesting alternative to traditional UTV and side by side offerings. The Roxor also received attention for its exterior styling which was reminiscent of a vintage Jeep CJ-3, and helped bring newfound exposure to Mahindra. This included the attention of a certain automotive giant in Auburn Hills, with FCA promptly taking Mahindra to court over copyright infringement. After a long legal battle, FCA has emerged the …

This includes sacrificing some of its rugged attributes and being a softer offering to help it appeal to a wider range of customers. But don’t expect this same transformation to occur with the Jeep Wrangler according to …
