The Force Gurkha was launched and priced in February last year, but strangely deliveries haven’t begun yet.

Improvements have been carried out to the quality of materials used, their fit and finish. Engineers have also carried out changes to the NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) package and improved the air conditioning of the car.

There are no reported changes to the engine and gearbox though. The Gurkha will be powered by a BS3 spec Mercedes-derived 2.6-liter turbocharged diesel engine which is capable of producing 82 PS and 230 Nm of torque. A 5-speed manual transmission with a Hi-Lo transfer case is provided on the car. The new Gurkha gets differential locks on both, front and rear axles. The SUV features a ground clearance of 210 mm.

    This SUV has the looks (It is priced under $15,000 in India) that can sell worldwide in numbers of at least 100,000+ units provided they can muster quality, fit and finish to international standards. If Force motors want to survive in this business, their mantra has to be Quality and Design at throwaway prices! Looking at the quality of their current product I don’t think they are close to this goal!
