Force Motors had launched the new generation Gurkha SUV earlier in September this year at a starting price of ₹13.59 lakh (ex-showroom). The SUV competes with Mahindra Thar, another true-blue off-roader in the Indian market.
The 2021 Force Gurkha comes with design inspiration from the Mercedes G-Wagen. The new generation model has received several upgrades compared to its preceding model. It comes with a new front grille, flanked by circular bi-LED headlamps and LED DRLs which sit above the new set of fog lamps. It also gets new 16-inch alloy wheels and a functional snorkel. At the rear, Gurkha gets a new set of taillights as well as a ladder to access the roof-mounted luggage carrier.
Under the hood of the 2021 Force Gurkha is an upgraded BS6 compliant 2.6-litre diesel engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The output from the 2.6-litre diesel engine remains almost identical to the previous model, which stands at 89 bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque.
