The MGExtender is one of the few anticipated vehicles to be introduced in our market soon.”
The Extender which competes in the 1-ton pickup truck segment is basically a rebadged Maxus T60 however with the arrival of facelift the MG Extender will become easily distinguishable from its Maxus cousin.
Bear in mind both MG and Maxus come under the umbrella of SAIC (Shanghai Auto Industry Corporation) of China.
The front-end gets thorough revisions in form of a large hexagonal grille with horizontal slats having an MG emblem mounted on top.
The facelift is also blessed with split-type headlights with LED DRLs and indicator elements on top and vertical main beam lamps underneath.
At the rear, there is a new full-width embellished tailgate panel that visually extends the taillights.
Inside there is new brown leather upholstery with faux carbon-fiber trim.
Like before, the Extender comes with a 10-inch infotainment touchscreen and the i-Smart voice control system, which can be used to control various operating functions including air-conditioning, audio, phone calls, and navigation, etc.
Under the hood, there is a 2.0-liter turbodiesel good for producing 161hp of power and 375Nm of torque paired to either 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual gearbox options with both 2WD and 4WD configurations available.
The 2021 MG Extender facelift which like before, will be available in single and double cab versions will officially be launched in Thailand on 22nd March at Bangkok International Motor Show (BIMS).
