Ashok Leyland BADA DOST Pickup- Expert Review


Ashok Leyland Bada Dost takes the Dost family of trucks to the next level in almost every possible element. To garner a bigger share in the fast-growing light truck market, the company has been expanding into the LCV segment with more and more products and their variants. The strategy is to offer multiple options to the customers and widen the portfolio across key segments to expand volumes. The Bada Dost- developed as a ground-up/a completely new development-is one product that now caters to the higher end of the LCV customer who wants to graduate from the Dost as they look to accelerate their business or buy a second vehicle into their fleet.

If you look at the Bada Dost- it has got several appealing aspects-firstly the design and overall exterior of this truck is quite appealing. Ashok Leyland has positioned this truck as a premium, international quality product with a modern design with some of the segment-leading features. This is targeted both the driver and owner-driver customer segment who now want a much more comfortable, safer and feature leaden truck. Ashok Leyland Bada Dost seems to tick all the right boxes when it comes to expanding the Dost family of trucks expansion in the market by catering to a new segment of customers. Are you looking to buy one? We explore this stylish and modern truck in detail to help you understand it better before you make your mind to purchase one. 


It is highly evident that Bada Dost looks stunning from the outside. It has been successful in taking Indian light trucks to just another level. We have some modern products in this segment by rival truck makers, and Bada Dost makes it even more contemporary. Ashok Leyland design team has done their home-work of designing this truck quite brilliantly! On the front, the Bada Dost shares some similarities with the existing Dost and gets new design angels of its own. Unlike passenger cars, the look and design aren't vital in the truck's purchasing decision. Yet, Bada Dost certainly would appeal to the new driver-cum owners when it comes to the look and modern design elements. 

Bada Dost is launched with two variants, the i4 & i3; the key difference is the payload capacities and the dimensions. The i4 is 1860 kg whereas the i3 is 1400 kg payload truck. The dimensions are also different in both variants; the wheelbase of 2590 mm & 1842 mm width is common. The overall length and height is 4935 mm and 2037mm for the i3, 5025 mm & 2061 mm for the i4 variant. Likewise, the cargo-body is also different to carry the respective payloads. The i4 variant cargo body is 9.8ft x 5.9ft x 1.7ft, with a loading platform height of 3.1 ft & the i3 variant 9.5ft x 5.9ft x 1.5ft and a loading platform height of 3 ft. Both the models are available in standard bodies in cabin and chassis and fixed side deck. The customer can still customize this truck into special applications such as high side deck, container, reefer body, refuse collection, etc. The tyre size of i4 7.00 R15 LT –12PR with tube type and i3 is 215/75 R15 LT tubeless tyre. The tyres are quite suitable for tough terrains and all weather conditions. 


What counts most to the customer is the cabin and comfortable driving experience. Most drivers are owners and spend hours and days with this truck driving and also resting in-between trips. Hence the pleasure to drive and in-cabin experience is what matters. Ashok Leyland doesn't disappoint in any of these key characteristics. The company has experience of its earlier trucks; with extensive feedback from its customer, a lot has been improved to make Bada Dost a real treat to its owners. 

Now to make it more friendly, a first in segment innovation is done inside the cabin. Unlike any typical mini-trucks, Bada Dost has 1+2 seat configuration inside the cabin; this is the first that ARAI has awarded a certification. This makes it quite easy for a driver and two passengers to get in comfortably. So the driver and his family can use it as personal space. Also, the cabin is a walkthrough; this offers generous legroom and headroom for three people. What else? To make the driving comfortable, an ergonomically positioned dash-mounted gear and controls for easier access for the driver for longer trips and even in high traffic congestion. The driving is further eased by a standard power steering & factory-fitted AC for pleasant cabin and fatigue-free driving. The low turning circle radius of Bada Dost and low TCD of 11m makes the navigation easy at tight turns or even parking at smaller areas. The wide and large windscreen with panoramic means a far superior and clear visibility and better control.


Performance by far the most important aspect to the consumer; this is a break or makes element of the trucks. Ashok Leyland knows this well and built further from its Dost range of mini-trucks with a strong powertrain, durable aggregates, and a reliable truck to take on your business's business cargo requirements.

Ashok Leyland says this engine offers superior fuel efficiency, helps make more trips faster and earn higher revenues every trip. It has got a great pickup quite suitable for stop-start heavy traffic conditions and takes on uphill climb, steep roads & terrains effortlessly. 

The same goes for the aggregates which are high quality, offer durability, and ensure you spend less on the overall maintenance for many years to come, thus a pocket-friendly truck. The Bada Dost clutch is 240 mm in a single diaphragm push type. The gearbox is cable operated fully synchronized, 5-speed, manual with cable shift with PTO provision. The steering is power-assisted in a tiltable column. The brakes are hydraulic vacuum-assisted type, the front ventilated discs and rear is drum type. The front suspension is over slung parabolic with 3- leaves–2 stage & the rear is over slung semi-elliptic with 3+3 leaves and 2 stage type. The fuel tank is 50L in size. The standard top speed is 80 kmph and gradeability is 23.2 %.
