Maruti Suzuki Gypsy the most beloved, iconic and the legendary off-roader in India is going to retire. In our exclusive report, Maruti Suzuki has stated that the iconic Gypsy’s production will come to an end in April 2019.
So if you want to buy the new Maruti Suzuki Gypsy this will be your last chance to get it because the bookings will only be available through the month of November 2018.
After November 2018 you will not be able to book new Maruti Suzuki Gypsy. Maruti Suzuki will stop takings bookings from the month of December 2018.
Sources say that the decision has been made by the company that they will not update the current Gypsy model to meet the new BSVI emissions and norm safety regulations that is set by the Indian government which will be applied from April 2019.
Since the first launched back in the December 1985 Maruti Gypsy’s design has always been muscular, tough-looking SUV that we adore and has been untouched to have the still same design up to this day which is loved by so many people (including me).
The Maruti did make some changes in design to be up to date through the modernisation during Gypsy’s 30 years of journey.
The changes were also made under the hood when the Gypsy first launched in 1985.
From 1985 to early 1996 the Gypsy was powered by 1.0 litre 4 cylinder 970cc carbureted F10A engine which produces 45bhp of power and 90nm of torque and was mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox with 4WD as standard.
Then during the period of mid-1996 to 2000 after so many buyers requested need of more power Maruti introduced the 1.3 litres all aluminium G13BA engine from the Maruti Esteem.
Unlike the US market, this 1.3 litre G13BA engine was the carbureted version and produces 60bhp of power and 99nm of torque it was mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.
From 2000 on Maruti introduced the G13BB 1.3 litre all aluminium fuel injection (replacing the carburetor) engine, because of fuel injection power went up from 60bhp and 99nm torque to 80bhp and 103nm of torque.
This engine still doing his duty up to this present day with the same five-speed manual gearbox and 4WD.
I’m sure gonna miss the Maruti Gypsy which I fell in love with its looks, off-road capabilities and ruggedness.
