Scoop! A 13-seater version of the Force Gurkha 4×4?

The extended body on this long-wheel base version of the Gurkha looks similar to the Trax Cruiser.

Force Motors is said to be working on a 5-door version of the Force Gurkha. It will be sold alongside the 3-door model that is currently available. Now, a third version has been spotted in Pune.

The extended body on this long-wheel base version of the Gurkha looks similar to the Trax Cruiser. Note that it is longer than the 5-door Gurkha test mules spotted earlier. The front fascia is identical to the 3-door Gurkha and is equipped with a snorkel, windscreen bar, roof rails and rear ladder.

Inside, it has seating for 13 people, including the driver. In order to accommodate them, the 2nd row captains seats have been replaced with a bench seat, while the rear section has two side facing bench seats.

We’ve been told that the SUV uses the same 2.6-litre diesel engine from the Gurkha 3-door. It produces 90 BHP and 250 Nm and is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox and a 4-wheel drive system with low range.
