The DICOR 3L has an engine that is a turbocharged CRDI version of the TATA 407 truck engine. It is not refined and is prone to vibration; in some vehicles that I have seen, the vibration is so bad that you feel like getting out of the car. So, avoid that one. Also, the mileage is poor. At 5L, it is not value for money. I would think that you should go for it only if it is around 3.5L to 4L.
The 2.2 engine is a much better, more powerful and more refined engine. It will give better mileage and will be a better option in the long run..

Hi,
Tata Safari 2.2 has been more of success and has great resalle value hence recommneded togo for the same.Though 3.0 L version has more power the overall performance is not as good as 2.2 version.

As long as you have bought the vehicles, there are no look backs.
Since you haven't specified the year, it is bit difficult to dscribe. As of a general trend, Tata new ventures have better durability and reliability once the settle over a period of time.
Google Ownerships for more specific info.

3.0L , Its Better in terms of mechanical stability and reliability, as its not a timing belt based design, rather gear like trucks.(coz its 407 Block). However it feel more raw, and obviously more vibration, but way too good for highway drives. 2.2 on the other side was a disaster on launch, tata had to do major reworks on the timing belt part to fix it. Many Many engine seizures on 2.2 due to timing belt breakage. Generally i find 2.2 being pain.to maintain. 3.0L on other side, remember its a 407 block, which comes with 300,000Km Warranty so if you properly treat your 3.0L safari, it will run for ages without any trouble. I own a 3.0L for 9 years now, 2.2 Seen many being sold after engine failure. I dont trust tata on the timing belt designs.
2.2 also have issues with Injector being stuck to the head, and not coming out, ending up in complete head replacement, where as 3.0L generally injectors can be pulled out without any trouble. 2.2 comes with hydraulic lash adjuster, which gets noisy over time, where as 3.0L is a push rod design, its noisy until it heats up :) . I am a 3.0L fan, just bought xenon crew cab, 3.0L.
