New Delhi: Indian automaker Force has started deliveries of its much-awaited SUV Gurkha from Tuesday. The company recently launched Gurkha 4X4. The off-road SUV has been updated on every front from design to features so that it not only looks more premium, but also gives that premium feel to its ride.
The off-road adventure lifestyle SUV, which is believed to be the only rival of Mahindra Thar in the Indian market, has been launched at a starting price of Rs 13.59 lakh. At the same time, a booking amount of Rs 25,000 has been fixed for this car.
Compared to 2021 Force Gurkha, the base AX four-seater convertible petrol manual variant of Mahindra Thar costs ₹12.78 lakh (ex-showroom), while the top-spec LX four-seater hard-top diesel automatic variant costs ₹15.08 lakh. (ex-showroom) has been fixed.
As Mahindra has tried to convert the Thar into a lifestyle vehicle instead of limiting it to just a hardcore off-roader. That’s why Force Motor has also tried to adapt the all-new Gurkha into a similar car that is not only a rugged off-roader but can also be used for everyday tasks.
Talking about the dimensions of the second generation Gurkha, this car is 4,116 mm long, 1,812 mm wide and 2,075 mm high, while the wheelbase of this car is 2,400 mm.
Talking about the Gurkha’s looks, then you can see the old school design circular LED headlamps at the front of this car, which look very beautiful with LED DRLs.
Force has made more major changes on the inside of this car than the exterior of the Gurkha. The brand new interior with a black theme makes this car more premium than ever. Also, here you get captain seats instead of bench seats for the rear riders, which are provided with arm-rests.
In terms of performance, the 2021 Force Gurkha is powered by a 2.6-litre four-cylinder capacity BS-VI diesel engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission unit. This engine is capable of producing a maximum power of 90 Bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque.
