Almost everyone wants to go on an offroad trip in our lives, at least once, on their own ride. However, there is a need for options in the proper offroad locally assembled vehicles in the country, especially comfortable ones. Revo Rocco will probably be among the top choices if you look at different local market options from different companies. The reason is its power and its performance on rough terrains. You can go in this car anywhere, whether, in a desert or the mountains, it is suitable from the south to the north.
The power of Rocco is top notch with its 2755 cc diesel engine generating 201 horsepower (hp) at 3400 RPM and 500 Nm of torque at 2800 RPM, making this car unmatchable. With this power, you can take a ride on any difficult terrain, be it muddy waters, boulders beside a mountain, or the sands of a desert. Its 4WD will ensure a safe and powerful drive on challenging roads, and you can test the vehicle to its full strength without fear of any lack of performance.
The other major off-roading features of the car are Hill Ascent Control (HAC), which minimizes vehicle roll-back by controlling brake fluid pressure as the driver’s foot is removed from the brake to the accelerator on such a steep incline. Then there is Diff Lock to help you in challenging landscapes as it locks the axle so that the two wheels turn at the same speeds.
The Rocco also comes with Limited Slip Differential (LSD), a device that channels power to the driven wheels with the most traction to help you on steep paths. Another vital feature is Downhill Assist Control (DAC), which improves directional control during descent on steep or slippery surfaces, making your journey very safe. Last but not least, the truck has A-Track, which detects when one or more wheels have lost traction and automatically applies the brakes to the wheel with no traction, allowing it to send power to the wheel with traction. All in all, the vehicle is best for ascending and descending.
On the other hand, the vehicle is not only best for off-roading, with the options like cruise control make it a great ride on long routes as you can enjoy the highways very comfortably.
On such adventures, you need safety for sure, and Rocco is here for you once again. The beast offers a number of safety features, including 3 airbags, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control, an Immobilizer, and five seatbelts. Also, the above-mentioned DAC and HAC are considered major safety features in a car.
These features make Rocco safe for you, your friends, and your family.
Comparison With the Rival
Isuzu D-Max is the main rival of Revo Rocco in Pakistan, so here is a brief comparison between two vehicles for you. We will compare Rocco with the D-Max Hi Lander 4×4 Double Cabin Standard model.
The Rocco engine is 2755cc diesel, producing 201hp and 500Nm of torque, compared to 2500cc diesel engines with 134hp and 320Nm of torque. Furthermore, the transmission in Toyota’s car is a 6-speed automatic to a 5-speed automatic in D-Max. This means Rocco is relatively more powerful than its competitor.
The steering in the Rocco is Hydraulic Power Steering with Variable Flow Control compared to Hydraulic Power Steering in Isuzu’s pickup truck, again an edge to the former. Coming to the wheels, you will find 18-inch alloy rims in Rocco compared to 16-inch steel ones in D-Max.
Regarding safety, Isuzu doesn’t offer any airbags against 3 in Toyota’s vehicle. Then the additional features in Rocco are DAC, HAC, VAC, and ISOFIX Child Seat Anchors. Meanwhile, both cars offer Traction Control, Child Lock, ABS, and 5 seatbelts.
