Force Motors' biggest launch of the year - Gurkha BS 6 is inching closer to the final date. After being spotted a number of times in the past, the final production-spec model has now been leaked in what seems to be an official brochure image.
The Gurkha BS 6 was displaced in the concept version at the Auto Expo 2020. It is expected to go on sale in the Indian market later this year.
The leaked image suggests that the off-roader will carry forward its key design elements such as circular headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lights, a snorkel, turn indicators placed over front fenders, and a tailgate-mounted spare wheel from the concept displayed at the expo.

Expect other cabin highlights such as A-pillar mounted grab rail, square-shaped and glove-box.
