Next-gen Force Gurkha to be launched on September 27

The new Gurkha will compete with the Mahindra Thar. Deliveries will commence on Dussehra.

Force Motors has announced that the next generation Gurkha will be launched on September 27. Deliveries will commence on Dussehra.

The new Force Gurkha looks similar to its predecessor. It carries forward the Mercedes G-Wagon inspired styling featuring a boxy exterior with circular LED headlamps, a redesigned bonnet with ‘shark grille’ on the sides and a snorkel.

On the inside, the Gurkha comes with an all-black dashboard with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The SUV gets captain seats in the second row.

The new Gurkha is powered by a 2.6-litre diesel engine producing 90 BHP and 250 Nm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, a low range gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system featuring locking front and rear differentials.

The Gurkha rides on independent double-wishbone suspension at the front and has a rigid axle at the rear, with coil springs all around. It enables the SUV to drive up 35-degree slopes and wade through 700 mm of water.
