Force Gurkha BS6 Will Be Competing With Mahindra Thar In The Indian Market.
Ahead of Force Gurkha launch in the Indian market, the manufacturer has yet released another teaser of the upcoming Thar competitor.
The newly released teaser reveals the dimensions of the front bumper, which likely resemble the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon. Simultaneously the teaser also unveils the headlights with LED DRL’s and the redesigned front grille.
Expected exteriors of the Gurkha might be equipped with alloy wheels, LED fog lamps, a luggage carrier, a snorkel, a tailgate-mounted spare wheel, and the branding of ‘Gurkha’ & ‘Extreme’ on either side.
Interiors will get a touchscreen infotainment system and captain seats or side-facing jump seats for the second row. Overall the interiors might be very basic for the current standards but also enough for hardcore offroading fans.
The expected powertrain includes a 2.6-liter diesel engine producing 89 BHP & 260 Nm of torque. The engine will be mated with a 5-speed manual transmission, which will also include a 4×4 low gear configuration and manual differential lock on selected trims.
Currently, Force Gurka will only have Mahindra Thar as a competitor, but once Maruti plans to introduce Jimmy in the Indian markets, the SUV will be competing with both.
Force Gurka Indian price will be around Rupees 10 Lakh (ex-showroom).
