The Mahindra Thar is one of the most popular 4 × 4 SUVs in the market It is also the most affordable SUV in the segment. We have seen several videos of Mahindra Thar off-roading in extreme conditions. We have off-road video where Mahindra Thar and other SUVs have failed In this case, either the terrain is too difficult or the driver is not so experienced. Here we have a video where Vlogger stuck a Mahindra Thar in a pile of pebbles in the middle of the road which was currently under construction.
The video was uploaded by Anmol’s Garage on their YouTube channel. When Vlogger started recording, Thor was already stuck in the gravel. Vlogger then explained that they were trying to take the SUV through a pebble to a store that was right next to it. The SUV easily climbed into the pile of pebbles and when the rear wheels started to rise, the SUV went to the beach. Vlogger and his friend tried desperately to get the SUV tight, but the loose gravel and its dirt made things harder for them.

They were employed 4×4 and even it made no difference. Underbody was the main reason Thor could not move forward. It was resting on the gravel and there was no traction of the wheels. They were just spinning and the same can be seen in the video. After several failed tests, Vlogger called a tractor driver who was working nearby. He then came to the scene and pulled out a tow rope. He tied the rope with Mahindra Thar and started pulling it out. Vlogger and his friend put a bunch of rocks under the wheels to see if they would help achieve traction. While pulling the tractor, those stones were preventing Thor from moving forward.
The tractor driver then tells the vulgar to remove the stone and after a while pulls Thar out. All this is in the middle of a road where construction was going on. Road work was going on and the pebbles that were seen on the road there were actually pebbles removed from the road. The Mahindra Thar is an efficient off-roader, but that doesn’t mean it won’t get stuck anywhere. Like any 4 × 4 car, the Thor has limitations. If Vlogger and his friends had taken a different approach to dealing with the obstacle, they would not have been stuck. They could easily get to an obstacle in a corner so that they could get to the newly built road on the other side without getting stuck.
