Javed Afridi Asks Public to Suggest the Price for MG Extender in Pakistan

While Morris Garages (MG) Pakistan has been relishing the success of the HS SUV here, now would be a good time for it to break into other markets as well. Javed Afridi — a key-stakeholder in MG Pakistan — seems to realize this and his latest tweet has caught the attention of pickup truck enthusiasts.

The Extender is MG’s midsize sports utility pickup truck that reportedly shares almost 75 percent of its underpinnings with the MG Gloster SUV. In Pakistan, it is likely to go up against the Toyota Hilux, the Isuzu D-Max, and the upcoming Volkswagen Amarok.

The truck is most commonly available in the international market with a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine that puts out 161 hp and 375 Nm of torque. It comes with two drivetrains – a 6-speed manual that sends power only to the rear wheels; and an all-wheel-drive 6-speed automatic.

Javed Afridi also teased the old MG Extender for the Pakistani market a few months ago, along with the midsize SUVs, the MG Gloster, and the RX 8, but nothing came of it. However, it is being speculated that the Extender will arrive in the market first in the facelifted form.

To answer Afridi’s tweeted question, given that the Extender’s current competitors are priced between Rs. 6.3 million and Rs. 7 million, the Extender should probably be priced in the same range.

The pickup truck was debuted in Thailand last week after reportedly having been hugely successful there for two years. The notable sales rate of the Toyota Hilux pickup truck in Pakistan is proof that there is a sizeable market here for strong sports utility pickup trucks, and this could motivate MG Pakistan to launch the Extender facelift here.

  • Due to financial crunch and alarming condition of pakistani people it’s price should only be 35-40lac
    rupees only.

  • I think ghe price of this beauty is round about 60 lac only then it will compete the market of Revo or D-Max

  • Javaid Afridi n his group are doing a good job, for introducing something better at a low cost.
    The price I suggest should not b more than 6 million.well in this price u can beat Dmax n give a tough time to Rivo.

  • public transport should be promoted. 100 billion $ foreign loans,still spending country precious earnings on expensive mobiles,cars. Cars then spares then fuel then tires. LOOKS NO SINCERE LONG TERM POLICY IN THIS COUNTRY.

  • Pretty good vehicle. It will succeed especially in rural areas. I like it very much. It is off road vehicle. I like it and ut will compete with all other such vehicles like Toyota Hilux. Its price should be around 5.5 millions

  • Chotee car nai kharede jaa rahee yaaatoo dooorr kii baat haa bareee..Joo marzee rakhlawooo….sanu ki…

  • I think the price of Any vehicle should be the Same as their engine power like a 660cc cars price should be 6.60 lacs, 1000cc price should be 1 million, 1300cc 1.3 million, 1500cc 1.5 million, and So on…. That’s My personal point of view and My personal Advice for government and the Industrialists.

  • Price is based on functions in car,if functions are same as hilux revo or others
    Then keep the same price but if functions are dominant than others so prices will be a bit up than others.Moreover, the test drive will clear the picture.

  • Sad to see it in diesel, I love petrol vehicles. Better service and easy maintenance

  • A fair price tag would be between 5 to 5.5M Pak Rs.. they gotta compete D Max and the evergreen Revo.

  • Trucks and more Trucks. Rs 6.3 million much more if it is competing with Toyota Hilux. At dollar down to 150 ruppees these cars should a not more than Rs 45 lacs.

  • Please be careful it is not proper 4×4. It will not perform like a proper SUV in the field. It is 2wheel and all wheel drive a very less expensive and pathetic drive technology for such a huge car.
