The upcoming off-road vehicle has also been detailed in past spy images. In addition, the concept model of the new-gen Gurkha was also set for display at the previous Auto Expo 2020. 

The available details hint that the Gurkha will continue along with the round-shaped headlights which will now sport LED DRLs. There will also be a redesigned front main grille and bumper. The new Gurkha will also be seen with redesigned taillights, newly designed wheels and a tailgate-mounted spare wheel. Other highlights will include turn indicators placed over front fenders, a functional roof carrier, and a long snorkel to enable a smooth water-wading experience.

When launched, expect the Gurkha to arrive in two body shapes - two-door and five-door. It may also get captain seats for the second row and side-facing jump seats at the rear.

Under the hood, expect the new Gurkha to come with a 2.6-litre diesel engine churning out 89 bhp and 260 Nm of peak torque. For transmission, the SUV could use a 5-speed gearbox. In comparison, the Thar SUV gets a 2.2-litre diesel engine with 130 hp and 300 Nm.
