Force Gurkha 2.2L BS-4 variant to launch soon


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Engine produces 141 PS and 321 Nm in Force One.

Overdrive reports that Force Motors will introduce a BS-4 variant of the Force Gurkha off-roader in a few months time. Currently, it is only available with a BS-3 engine, hampering Force Motors from selling the Gurkha in a few cities.

The engine in question is the 2.2-litre, four cylinder diesel engine (OM611) from the Force One, which is also a Mercedes-derived engine. In the latter, it produces 141 PS and 321 Nm of torque, thus offering a power bump of 59 PS and 91 Nm of torque.

The current Gurkha is sold with a 2.6-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine (OM616) that produces 82 PS and 230 Nm. It is paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox, and features differential locks on both front and rear axles in 4×4 variants. It also has a ground clearance of 210 mm.
