Which Truck To Choose?

 

For starters, the Tata 1512 LPT comes with an efficient and powerful powertrain, but the Eicher Pro 2114XP’s engine has better torque output.

 

The Eicher Pro 2114XP also comes in multiple wheelbase options and load body lengths. The brand offers it in three wheelbases: 3900mm, 4355mm and 5105mm, unlike the Tata 1512 LPT truck which only comes in two wheelbase options: 4200mm and 4830mm.

 

The Pro 2114XP also has an upper hand in terms of fuel tank capacity. It comes with 190 litres or 425 litres tank capacity based on the body length that is opted for. The Tata 1512 LPT only comes with 160 litres fuel tank capacity.

 

However, the Tata 1512 LPT is available for purchase at a starting price of just Rs. 23.40 lakh. The Eicher Pro 2114XP, on the other hand, comes with a starting price tag of Rs. 24.78 lakh, which is higher than the 1512 LPT.


Apart from the pricing, the Tata 1512 LPT is known for its proven durability. It is best suitable for continuous fleet operations and long haulage duties. Tata Motors also has a strong reputation for its after-sales service. Eicher Motors also offers good after-sales service, though Tata Motors is generally known to have an upper hand. 

 

Verdict:

 

The Tata 1512 LPT is ideal for those seeking an affordable medium-duty truck or ICV for heavy-duty operations. The truck comes with a three-year or 3-lakh km warranty and has a payload rated 10550kg.

 

However, if you are looking for a premium, high-torque truck, then the Eicher Pro 2114XP is the best choice for you. The vehicle also gets a superior warranty package. It comes with three years or unlimited km warranty (on the vehicle) and a four-year unlimited km warranty on the engine and gearbox.

 

Furthermore, the Eicher Pro 2114XP comes with features like cruise control and DRL headlamps which are not available on the Tata 1512 LPT. The Eicher Pro 2114XP also offers a best-in-class payload of 10631kg.

 

In short, the Tata 1512 LPT is meant for those seeking an affordable truck for challenging operations and the Eicher Pro 2114XP is meant for those who are looking for a more premium appeal, payload and torque.
