22nd August 2020
"The new Force Gurkha will be powered by a 90PS 2.6-litre diesel engine paired with a 5-speed MT."
Force Motor’s lineup at the Auto Expo 2020 got us our first look at the new Gurkha. Since then, it has stayed out of the spotlight, until now. The next-gen Force Gurkha is likely to hit the market as soon as October during the festive season.
Set for a July launch earlier, plans to launch the off-roader were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now with things settling down and the world adjusting to a new normal, Force Motors will execute those plans despite the delay.
New Gurkha gets some cosmetic changes, which include new optional LED headlights, redesigned front grille and updated bumper upfront as well as the rear. The Force Gurkha’s boxy body stands on 245/70 R16-inch alloy wheels. That’s smaller than rival Thar’s massive 255/65 R18.
Gurkha will be powered by a 2.6-litre diesel engine that puts out 90PS. The 4-seater’s engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission with a low-range transfer case. It offers an independent suspension setup upfront with a rigid-axle rear arrangement.
Gurkha expected price
It is expected to be priced from INR 9.5 lakh to INR 13.3 lakh and expected to launch by Tihar. One of its rivals will be the upcoming 2020 Mahindra Thar which is set for an October 2 launch.
