Force Gurkha

Even though the entire body shell is new, the design of the Force Gurkha 2021 is similar to that of the old model. A new grille, bumpers, light clusters, larger windows for the rear passengers, which the company refers to as “panoramic windows,” and a larger windshield in the rear help improve rear visibility. The snorkel and other pieces of hardware come pre-installed from the factory. However, the new dashboard, touchscreen infotainment system, and captain seats in the second row that face forward are some of the more notable additions to the cabin.

When viewed from the side and the back, the new Gurkha has a singular appearance. The Gurkha now has all-LED headlights on the front, making it instantly appear more expensive and providing excellent nighttime illumination. Instead of the Force Motors logo, the Gurkha nameplate now proudly appears on the grille; Customers can now save money for aftermarket auto modification.

Engine

An updated BS6 turbo-diesel version of the 2.6-liter four-cylinder engine powers the Gurkha. It now produces 90 bhp, an increase of 6 bhp, and 250 nm of peak torque, an increase of 20 nm, but Force Motors focused on making it more refined. The engine is less noisy unless you open the front windows, and the vibrations while driving are also reduced, which is a significant improvement over the previous model. Even the five-speed manual gearbox has been improved to reduce gear lever vibrations and enhance shift performance. Force Motors has no plans to provide a more convenient automatic gearbox.

The Gurkha’s torque curve, which begins at a low 1,400rpm, is ideal for driving. The Gurkha can easily cruise at speeds between 80 and 100 km/h with all that torque.

What is 4X4X4 in Gurkha ?

The Gurkha’s ability to drive on four wheels in all four seasons and on four different terrains—ice, sand, water, and rock—is referred to as 4X4X4. Even though the full form above might confuse you, E.O.V. is what makes Gurkha unique. The new Gurkha’s EOV, or Extreme Off-Road Vehicle, is its foundation.

Exterior

The new Gurkha is 22 millimeters wider, 20 millimeters taller, and 124 millimeters longer than before. Despite this, it appears more cramped than before. This is because the front bumper is bigger, the wheel fenders are better integrated, the gap between the wheel wells is smaller, and the design is less fussy overall. In light of this, we should point out that the 16-inch Apollo Apterra all-terrain tyres and alloy wheels that you see here are part of the official accessories list. The roof rails and the guard for the front windshield are two additional accessories on this test unit.

Interior & Features

Force Motors wanted to make the Gurkha more appealing by adding more equipment to it. The aforementioned touchscreen is one such piece of equipment. It enables Bluetooth phone calls as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other comfort features include tilt and telescoping steering, individual armrests for the back seats, USB charging ports for all four passengers, air conditioning, power windows, central locking, LED headlights with DRLs, fog lamps, and cornering lighting. The interior’s color scheme has shifted from the dual-tone cabin of the show car to a single-tone dark grey.

Safety

The Gurkha has dual airbags, anti-lock brakes, rear parking sensors, ISOFIX child seat anchors, and even a tyre pressure monitoring system to meet current safety standards.

Mileage

In India, the Force Gurkha is available in a diesel version. The Gurkha Diesel Manual’s claimed ARAI mileage is 12.4 kmpl.

Colours

There are five distinct hues of Force Gurkha to choose from: grey, red, green, white, and orange.
