The Tata Gravitas is expected to come powered by the same 2.0-litre ‘Kryotec' diesel engine as on the Harrier. However, the seven-seater SUV will receive a higher state-of-tune. The engine on the Gravitas will produce 173bhp and 350Nm of peak torque; around 30bhp more than on the Harrier.

The engine will be mated to the same six-speed manual gearbox as the Harrier. While Tata is said to be working on introducing a six-speed automatic transmission option, which might be introduced at a slightly later stage. The engine on the Tata Gravitas will be compliant with the upcoming BS-VI emission norms, which will later be carried forward on the Harrier as well.
