The wide grille, flanked by round-shaped LED headlights with jewel-like DRLs, will have a prominent and large Gurkha badging. The Gurkha badging will also be seen on the headlights too. Gurkha also gets turn indicators, which are placed on top of the headlights.

Besides the snorkel placed on the driver's side of the new Gurkha, the SUV also gets a redesigned bonnet with new shark gill vents. These changes have been made to make the 2021 Gurkha SUV a more capable water-wading vehicle.

Force Gurkha is also likely to get redesigned taillights, new set of wheels, a tailgate-mounted spare wheel and a functional roof carrier too.

Force Motor has also revealed key features of the interior, which is likely to get an all-black colour theme. It gets moulded floor mats to ensure low NVH in the cabin, a semi-digital instrument cluster with dials to indicate speed and rpm, a digital infotainment screen and much more.

The four-seater version of the 2021 Force Gurkha will come with captain seats at the rear. It will also have armrests for both rear passengers. The seats will have Gurkha badging too. The large side windows, which appear sealed just like Mahindra Thar, are also likely to help enhance visibility for occupants.

2021 Force Gurkha SUV is likely to be powered by a 2.6-litre diesel engine, that is capable of generating maximum power of 89 bhp and 260 Nm of peak torque. The engine will come mated to a 5-speed gearbox with a separate gear lever for the 4X4 mode.

For now, the 2021 Force Gurkha will only have Mahindra Thar SUV as its rival in the Indian market. The price of the new Gurkha is likely to range between 10 lakh and 12 lakh (ex-showroom).
