Farming Simulator 19 has quite a few licensed machines and equipment. Today, they dropped a video featuring the Mahindra Retriever. It is a two seater with a short bed in the back for hauling and quickly moving around your farm. This is interesting, because Mahindra is not one of the brands listed on it’s official site. Can we expect more from Mahindra in the future?
The second interesting thing is that this is not the biggest or most exciting piece of machinery they could have shown. It’s a little curious, but I can only guess it’s one of two possibilities. First, they are announcing Mahindra as a new brand. Second, they are just showing off the terrain and ability to navigate your own farm, and that’s kind of cool.
For spec-hungry fans, I looked up some stats on the Retriever. The 1000 Gas Standard model comes with 83 horsepower allowing it to haul 1,200 pounds (544.3 kilograms) and tow up to 2,500 pounds (1,134 kilograms). It has a max speed of 60 mph (96.56 kph). By the way, I thought the dash looked a little bland. Although a head-on picture is not easy to find (when you are lazy), it looks to be the exact dash in one of the Retriever marketing videos I watched. There is no need for flash in a vehicle meant for working. It may be the closest you can get to driving one of these babies without paying the $17,199 MSRP.
Farming Simulator 19 is releasing on November 20th. I would be very surprised if one of the farm sim loving writers around here didn’t drop a review on this one, so be sure to check back with us for a rich harvest of our thoughts and opinions.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
