Force Motors has launched the Gurkha ABS in the Indian market. Prices for the updated Force Gurkha off-roader starts at Rs 11.05 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi). Bookings for the ABS-equipped Force Gurkha is now open across its dealerships in the country.
The Force Gurkha is available in a range of three variants — Xplorer, Xtreme and Xpedition. The three variants are further available in either a three-door or five-door formats. Force has updated the Xplorer three-door, Xplorer five-door and Xtreme three-door variants with ABS. The three models are priced at Rs 11.05 lakh, Rs12.55 lakh and Rs 13.30 lakh, respectively. All prices are ex-showroom (Delhi). Force is yet to update the Xpedition model with the mandatory safety feature.
Force Motors recently launched the Gurkha Xtreme in the Indian market. The Force Gurkha Xtreme is the top-of-the-line model for the Gurkha lineup in the country. The top-spec Force Gurkha Xtreme is powered by a new 2.2-litre diesel engine producing a healthy 140bhp and 321Nm of torque. It is mated to a standard five-speed manual gearbox.
The new diesel engine replaces the older 2.5-litre unit which produced 85bhp and 230Nm of torque. However, the Xpedition and Xplorer variants of the Force Gurkha continue to be powered by this engine.
The new Force Gurkha Xtreme also comes with new decals, larger footboards, new bumpers, LED indicators and refreshed set of wing mirrors; all of which help it differentiate from the other variants — here are more details on the new 2019 Force Gurkha Xtreme.
Force Motors is also said to be testing out a BS-VI compliant engine for the Gurkha models. The new engine has been spied testing recently, suggesting an update closer to the April 2020 deadline — here are more details on the new BS-VI compliant diesel engine on the Gurkha.
Although, the new safety regulations of April 2019 mandates the requirement of certain safety features. Force Motors have updated the Gurkha models with just the anti-lock braking system. This suggests that Force might have another update in store in the future to add on the remaining safety features made mandatory by the new regulations. These additional safety features include seatbelt reminders, high-speed alerts, dual airbags and reverse parking sensors.
