Spied – Force One 4×4 BS3 variant caught on test
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
In July last year, Force Motors launched new variants on the Force One SUV. The company announced that the Force One will be sold in three trim levels. A low-end EX model saw a BS3 engine with a starting price of INR 8.99 lakhs (Ex-Showroom) while a top-end LX received a BS4 engine along with a 4×4 mechanism.
Eight months into the launch and Car Toq claims that the Force One 4×4 is yet to even reach a dealership, leave alone a customer. Even so, the company has started testing a new variant of the One. Seen in these images are the Force One BS3 EX with 4×4 and jump seats.
Jump seats have not been offered on the One SUV, as it gets three rows of bench seats (or optional middle captains seats). Car Toq claims that these jump seats will accommodate four adults.
Powering the BS3 version of the Force One is a 2.6-liter four-cylinder diesel engine producing 82 PS at 3,200 rpm and 230 Nm of torque between 1,800-2,000 rpm.
Apart from variants on the Force One, the company is also working on introducing an MPV. The MPV is based on the old Mercedes Viano’s platform and has been spied testing near Force Motor’s facility many times.
