The basic design is however based on the previous Armada Grand. The 1st generation model was equipped with a Peugeot 2.5Liter IDI engine that could generate 75bhp.

The 2nd generation Bolera was released with very slight modifications with respect to exterior and the major changes are with the engine. You could see a 2.5 L engine introduced for the second generation. And, second gen Bolero was powered by a 2523 cc turbo-charged diesel engine that could pump up 72 bhp. 235/75 R15 Goodyear default Wrangler radials were offered during that generation

When it comes to fuel efficiency, fuel economy of Bolera in City is around 12 km/L and on highways it achieves up to 14 km/L.
