A legend is not born out of sheer luck nor is a name earned by being a bystander. As a matter of fact, a legend is born from being a leader with might and vision and a name is earned with no sorcery but pure admiration for work. One such mighty leader among the big commercial vehicle conglomerates is Tata Motors-"the king of commercial vehicles."
There has been many who rose from the ashes of the fallen and withstood the effects of time but ultimately failed. Today, we are not here to mess around with none of the stories as such, instead, we are here to discuss the rise of an empire that was not built in one day and withstood the effects of time for eternity. This is the legend of Tata Motors that still soar above other commercial vehicle makers in the market.
Tata Motors introduced their first commercial vehicle in the year 1977 and from here on, they have achieved the impossible. Many logistic-delivery business owners and fleet distribution managers believe in the might of Tata and its products even to this date. It is due to the reliability of the motor made in-house and the vehicle as a whole. Tata has been admired and looked upon by many other manufacturers in the CV segment simply because, it is known for durable and reliable CVs that perform to their fullest potential.
One of the most popular commercial vehicles to have the qualities aforementioned is the Tata Ace Gold. Its BS6 iteration has once again proved to be a worthy opponent for other vehicles in its segment. Today let us look deep into the different variants offered by the legend- Tata Ace Gold!
To cater for its customers, Tata has brilliantly created three different variants of the Tata Ace Gold Bs6. The following are the details regarding Tata Ace Gold and its variants:
The Tata Ace Gold Diesel is the most popular variant among the other two, simply because of the power and torque figures that its diesel engine churns out. Also, the rising price of petrol is one of the important factors that has led to the boom in sales of its diesel variant.
The Ace Gold diesel has a reliable 2 cylinder engine of 700CC. It is a naturally aspirated DI engine known for providing good fuel economy figures. The vehicle churns out 20HP and 45 Nm of torque which is good for climbing steep inclines with ease. This variant of the Tata Ace Gold has better acceleration capabilities while climbing inclines with load and has 27.5% of gradeability.
The vehicle has the capacity to carry loads that weigh around 750Kg and can be used for all types of last-mile transportation. It has robust chassis, rugged front and rear leaf spring suspension setup and heavy-duty axles to take on any kind of load.
The Tata Ace Gold Diesel gets features such as a digital instrument cluster, a big glove box, a USB charger and all the basic requirements. In terms of service, all the spare parts for this vehicle is easily available and Tata Motors offer a 2 years full warranty.
Tata offers the Ace Gold in another variant called the Ace Gold Petrol. As the name suggests, this vehicle is powered by Tata's 275 Gasoline MPFI BS6 petrol engine that churns out 30 HP and 55Nm of torque. Basically, the 4 Stroke water-cooled engine is quite powerful and peppy. The engine also provides higher acceleration power.
In addition to this, the vehicle has a 30% gradeability which means that the Tata Ace Gold Petrol can climb steep terrain efficiently even with cargo onboard. The Ace Gold Petrol has features such as a Gear Shift Advisor and Eco Switch for high fuel efficiency.
Tata Motors claims this LCV can help earn Rs 25,000 profit per month by transporting all kinds of goods such as fruits & vegetables, Gas cylinders, consumer products, furniture, FMCG, Diary products etc.
The last variant of the Tata Ace Gold is powered by a water-cooled multipoint gas injection engine. It is a 694CC CNG engine that churns out 26HP at a peak torque of 50Nm. This is quite an impressive figure for a CNG engine. The vehicle has quicker acceleration and can carry heavy loads like a breeze. However, do note that the payload of this variant is quite lesser than the other two. The Ace Gold CNG can carry loads up to 640Kgs which is not bad for a CNG powered vehicle.
The CNG engine of the Tata Ace Gold is quite fuel-efficient and the vehicle has a 29% gradeability. Like the other two variants, Tata equips the Ace Gold CNG with a gear shift advisor to get better fuel economy figures.
The Ace Gold CNG gets a cargo loading area of 2520mm which is 8.2 feet. This helps in carrying loads that maximize profit.
The Tata Ace Gold has set new standards in the Light Commercial Vehicle segment by establishing the fact that it is a powerful and reliable machine. Tata Ace Gold has competition from the likes of vehicles such as the Mahindra Jeeto and the Maruti Suzuki Super Carry, however, it has remained unaffected by the test of time and has turned out to be the leader in the LCV category.
The Ace Gold comes at a starting price of Rs.4.41 Lakh and goes all the way up to Rs.5.47 Lakh making it one of the most affordable LCVs in the market.
