Bolero was equipped with a Peugeot 2.5 L (150 in3) IDI engine which produced 76 PS (56 kW), although turbocharged versions with or without an intercooler were also available, raising power to 95 or 101 PS (70 or 74 kW) respectively. The second generation was released with slightly modified exteriors (a larger grille being the most obvious change) and the major change was the engine, a 2.5 L (150 in3) in-house engine from Mahindra. It is powered by a 72 PS (53 kW) 2,523 cc (154.0 cu in) turbocharged direct injection diesel engine.
In September 2011, the third generation Bolero was released, with a more thoroughly re-designed front with jewelled headlamps. In India it is powered by the 63 PS (46 kW) M2DiCR diesel engine with a “soft turbo”, mated to a five-speed transmission. This latest engine meets the Bharat IV emissions standards.
