The second generation was replaced in the (northern hemisphere) autumn of 2005. A new vehicle using some elements of the Theta platform and built in Japan. Escudo from 2006 was independently developed by many Suzuki engineers who developed Theta. Although it uses some Theta components, especially in suspension, it is completely different and should not be considered a Theta vehicle. It is worth noting that it uses a longitudinally installed engine and is at least a rear-wheel drive with 103.5 inches (2639 mm) wheelbase, while all other Theta vehicles are transversely driven, with the assumption on the front-wheel drive. While other Theta vehicles can be ordered with all-wheel drive with front-wheel drive, Escudo offers the option of choosing four-wheel drive in the field instead. The contemporary Suzuki XL7 generation (starting from the 2007 model) was a real Theta vehicle and was built with Chevrolet Equinox and Pontiac Torrent at CAMI Automotive in Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada. The most common version of Escudo is the 5-door version, but the three-door version is also available in some markets. In some markets, the three-door variant drops the "Grand" to be called "Vitara". In some countries, including Chile, the 5-door version is called "Grand Nomade". 2008-2011 In the second half of 2008, the Suzuki Grand Vitara was refurbished and two new engines. There is a 2.4 L engine with 124 kW (169 hp, 166 hp) and a torque of 221 N · m (163 lb · ft). The new V6 is offered only in the flagship prestigious model, which produces 165 kW (224 hp, 221 hp) and 284 N · m (209 lb · ft) of torque. Fuel consumption has also been optimized by adding VVT to both engines, and the 1.9-liter Turbo-Diesel engine also received some mechanical work to improve economy. Security has also been improved because more airbags and traction control are standard on all models. The four-channel four-wheel drive system is also available on all models. It has a central locking differential and low gear ratio gearboxes. Subtle improvements have been introduced outside the car, such as indicators in the side mirrors and a more expressive front grille and bumper. Inside, you can also see many more aesthetic changes. Modernization of Suzuki Grand Nomade (Chile) 2012 In the second quarter of 2012, in the model year, Suzuki presented the Escudo model with new wheels, a new grille and front lights. The V6 engine was interrupted here. Starting with this facelift, Grand Vitara in Indonesia is now a researched Escudo, imported from Japan. Cessation Suzuki officially withdrew the third generation Escudo in Japan in April 2017, and the third generation of Grand Vitara in Indonesia at the end of 2017. In Iran, it is still produced by IKCO, and only the JB24 I4 engine is offered with a 4-speed automatic transmission along with 5-speed manual transmission. In Indonesia, he was replaced by Suzuki Vitara Brezza, sold alongside the fourth generation Vitary.
