Roxor? It sounds like a casino in Vegas or something. Wait, that’s the Luxor. If you’re into off-roading, Roxor is a name you’re going to be hearing more and more of in the future. Roxor’s vehicle looks like a Jeep CJ chassis, with the major exception that it’s not street legal. Mahindra & Mahindra of India based the Roxor on an earlier vehicle of theirs named the Thar, so although it looks like a Jeep, it isn’t.

That’s right; the Roxor is a 4X4 utility vehicle that may only be driven off-road. Officially called the Mahindra Roxor, it’s built by Mahindra Automotive North America. It has a 2.5L M2DICR turbo engine backed by a five-speed manual gearbox with a two-speed manual transfer case with a low ratio. This combination gives it almost 3,500 pounds of towing capacity. The vehicle weighs in at just over 3,000 pounds and has an MSRP of $15,999.

As mentioned above, the Roxor is based upon Mahindra’s Thar but looks like a Jeep, having many of the same dimensions of a Jeep CJ. It looks like a Jeep because it is inspired by the venerable Willys of WWII fame. Roxor also has a ton of accessories and add-ons to fully customize your Roxor, from body mods to bumpers, winches and graphics to climate control, with almost everything in between. The only real visible drawback I can see is that in its stock form, it only has nine inches of ground clearance, something easily improved with a suspension upgrade.
