The 6-speed automatic would also be introduced in the Hexa SUV which is slated to go on sale in India shortly.

The Tata Xenon automatic pickup truck made its world premiere at 2016 Bangkok Motor Show. The work horse has been catering to the price sensitive end of Thailand’s vast pickup market and the automatic transmission is expected to improve its prospects.

Available in the fully loaded DLS 4×4 variant, the Xenon 150NX-Plore is the first ever regular automatic car from the Indian automaker to hit the road. The brand is selling its Zest compact sedan in India with an AMT (Automated Manual Transmission).

Tata’s 6-speed automatic transmission has been long time coming. It was rumored to debut on board the Safari Strome or Aria. Then the recent reports from India suggested that the Hexa has been chosen as the model to introduce the automatic transmission which is said to be sourced from GM.

As of now, Tata Motors has not announced whether the Xenon automatic will be launched in India or not. The gearbox is paired with the familiar 2.2-litre DICOR diesel engine which is tuned to produce 150 PS and 320 Nm of torque.
