Spied – Force One 4×4 variant continues testing
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Force Motors is expected to launch the Force One in a couple of new variants. On the one hand, the Force One would get a lower spec variant and as a result sport a reduced price tag.
On the other hand, Force Motors is expected to launch a top-end version of the Force One with four-wheel drive. While we brought you some spyshots of the car testing in Maharashtra sometime last year, it appears that Force Motors continues to test the Force One 4×4, as seen in these latest images from Motorbash.
The only giveaway that this is not an ordinary version is the ‘4×4’ badge at the top-right corner of the bootlid. You can also see some ‘4×4’ graphics on the sides of the car, just below the third window. The Force One 4×4 is also expected to get some feature additions to make it a bit more premium.
Motorbash reports that they have spoken to some Force officials who have said that the Force One 4×4 will be launched in July. It would naturally command a higher price than the existing variant.
The engine is expected to remain the same. It is powered by a Mercedes sourced 2.2-liter FMTECH diesel engine producing 141PS of power and 321Nm of torque. A 5-speed gearbox sends power to the rear wheels in the current Force One.
The Force One starts at about INR 11.7 lakhs (ex-showroom, Mumbai). In the next few months, expect a lower priced model in the form of the low cost Force One, and a higher price AWD Force One.
