The Indian ute and SUV maker has released a rougher, tougher take on its Pik-Up, wearing a much steeper sticker price.

Mahindra has joined the crowd of carmakers offering a sticker pack for its dual-cab ute, unveiling the Black mHawk Pik-Up alongside a range of fresh 'Tradie Packs'.

The limited-edition Black mHawk Pik-Up follows a formula becoming increasingly common in the dual-cab world.

It rides on blacked-out 17-inch alloy wheels, and wears a black alloy sports bar, black side steps, black fender flares and a blacked-out factory bull bar. There's also a new sticker pack made up of decals finished in (you guessed it) black.

Power comes from the same 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine offered elsewhere in the range, offering the same 103kW of power and 330Nm of torque. A six-speed manual transmission and switchable four-wheel drive are both standard, along with an Eaton locking differential.

Other than the blacked-out bits, the mHawk is a range-topping Pik-Up S10. That means it has satellite navigation and a 6.0-inch infotainment system, single-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers, front armrests, and a step in the rear bumper.

Pricing starts at $38,990 drive-away, with just 50 to be built as an initial run. That's a whopping $7000 more than the regular Pik-Up S10, but Mahindra says they're almost all spoken for already.

Along with the Black mHawk, the accessories team at Mahindra has been busy readying new Tradie Packs. The single-cab S6 4x2 ute with Tradie Pack is priced from the same $23,990 drive-away as the regular model, but gains an aluminium tray with built-in ladder rack, a tow bar, Bluetooth connectivity and cruise control.

Jumping to the 4x4 model adds $3000 to that asking price, and includes the same range of optional extras as standard.

Both models are on sale right now.
