Anjan Ravi,

I’m a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

Force Motors launched the new Force Gurkha back in February last year. However, sales of the SUV haven’t commenced till date as Force Motors have been reportedly working on improving the product.

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.
