Nov 10, 2018: The Ashok Leyland Dost is the company’s answer to the growing popularity and demand of the mini pickup segment. However, what is special about this particular model is that it has a very environment-efficient engine in the form of a CNG motor that is built with three cylinders. The motor can churn out a maximum power of 42 bhp and a peak torque of 105 Nm, which seems to be enough to fulfil the duties of an LCV.

The braking is done by a hydraulic setup along with the addition of parking brakes. The front wheels are suspended over transverse leaf spring suspension while the rear has the two-stage overslung unit.
