Force Gurkha - The redefined 4x4 competitor

Force Gurkha - The redefined 4x4 competitor

After the retirement of the much-loved Maruti Gypsy, the 2021 Force Gurkha may be the only remaining contender to the Mahindra Thar. And the BS6 version of the Force Gurkha is making a reappearance. The Gurkha, last seen at the 2020 Auto Expo, promised huge things and drew the most attention with its candy orange paint scheme. 

The 2021 Force Gurkha will compete with the Mahindra Thar and the Maruti Suzuki Jimny, slated to hit the Indian market in the following months. The teaser image reveals that it will feature a snorkel and working roof rails. Apart from that, we can anticipate this SUV being available in both 3 and 5 door versions, providing seating for 4 and 6 people, respectively! A new set of LED DRLs and a modified grille and front bumper, turn indicators positioned over front fenders, redesigned tail lights, freshly designed wheels, and a tailgate-mounted spare wheel are among the design modifications. The wheels are 16 inches in diameter, with 245/70 tires.

The Gurkha has a boxy and basic shape, but you can compare it to the Mercedes G-class if you're creative. The Gurkha is completely devoid of luxury on the inside, with air conditioning serving as the only amenity. The front seats are comfortable. However, the middle row (on five-door models) and side-facing back seats are not. Drivers will appreciate the view out the window, and seeing the corners of the bonnet helps when positioning the Gurkha in the terrain. A 2.6-liter diesel engine with 85 horsepower powers the Xpedition and Xplorer versions of the Gurkha. It's loud, and the acceleration is slow, but the engine's low-end grunt is useful on an off-road route. When you look at the numbers, you'll notice that the Mahindra Thar is more powerful.

The Gurkha Xtreme promises better refinement and performance thanks to its Mercedes-based 140hp, 2.2-liter diesel engine. All Gurkhas feel heavy and sluggish in town, though the ride is pleasant, albeit by off-roader standards. 

Off-road, the Gurkhas are at their finest. Low range, adjustable rear and front differentials, and even a factory-installed snorkel make the Force Gurkha a capable off-road vehicle.

The Gurkha is lavishly treated on the inside. Depending on your preference, you can have a dual-tone dashboard or an all-black dashboard. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are now available on the touchscreen infotainment system. Aside from that, the 3-spoke steering wheel and numerous other interior amenities make it a must-have! A snorkel (which provides for increased water-wading capability), new LED headlamps with LED DRLs, a large roof carrier, bulky wheel armor, and blacked-out ORVMs will all be available on the New Gurkha.
