    Mahindra still makes the cj3b (as they have the overseas patent) as well as a number of other 'jeepneys' etc. Unfortunately, it looks like they are sticking with the dog of a 2.5L turbo diesel. There could be some cool diesel options - this just isn't it. I can't see something with a max speed of 50mph making much sales in the US. Heck, the original willys L and F134 4cyl options puts out a bit more hp and drives about the same. The 5 speed will certainly help with the diesel staying in its narrow power band. Keeping the tires at 30-31" (or less) and its probably geared reasonably low, will help - but most of us want something a bit bigger. Mistubishi also produces some cj3b look-a-likes overseas and runs an underpowered 4cyl diesel - wonder if its the same one.

    EDIT: looks like Mitsubishi is using a slightly bigger 4cyl diesel at 162 cubic inches (2.7L) direct injection that puts out 99hp and 163ft-lbs. That one does 0-60mph in 15.6 seconds. The Mitsu is kind of a dog for anything other than a stock set-up. The Mahindra is going to be less of a performer I would guess.http://www.automobile-catalog.com/car/1998/2019875/mitsubishi_jeep_j55_canvas_top.html

    "Has he shared any thoughts on it thus far?"

    Here are some quotes from his posts: I belive his is a Thar model as opposed to a Roxor model but both are very similar

    Power is fine in it. Very torquey. Feels like a larger FHead. Same kinda snorty low end feel. In high it will crawl around with ease without touching the throttle.
    Its WAY longer (than a cj5 sic) (96 WB). Think an ecj5 front end with an LJ tub. ECJ5 width, but much more length in the tub.
    Ride is what I assume a YJ spring equipped early 6 would feel like. It does have a front sway bar.
    its a 5 speed

    Its truly sold as a ATV and depending on state, may or may not be licensed for driving on public roads. Of course, it bigger than many ATVs and thus may or may not qualify for maximum width requirements in some ATV areas. It has no windshield. For those of us in the early cj5 crowd - hoping it will provide a new opportunity to get new aftermarket parts for replacement/swaps/build etc. Replace the front end with a classic cj nose and put it on 33s (think it comes on 31s), and it would be cool trail rig i think. At the same time, I don't know if the 4cyl is 'zippy' compared to the side-by-side ATV crowd for rallying around, and thus it might be a bit limited in demand for more of a torquey crawling rig.
