Currently, the Force Gurkha comes in 3-door and 5-door variants with an AWD drivetrain as standard. In this config, the rugged SUV is a direct competitor of the Mahindra Thar 3-door. However, That is also being sold in both RWD petrol and diesel variants at a lower starting price of Rs 11.35 Lakh (ex-showroom).

Design-wise, the RWD variant of the Gurkha will remain the same in the 3-door option. Currently, the Force Gurkha comes with a price tag of Rs 16.75 Lakh and Rs 18 Lakh for the 3-door and 5-door versions respectively (all prices, ex-showroom). This new RWD variant will help make the Gurkha more accessible and possibly take away some sales from the RWD Mahindra Thar lifestyle SUV, which for now also has a long waiting period.

The Gurkha boasts features such as a 9.0-inch infotainment screen, a new digital driver’s display, powered ORVMs, a rear camera, tilt and telescopic steering adjust, a tyre pressure monitoring system and more.

As for the powertrain, the Gurkha gets the 2.6-litre Meredes-sourced diesel engine that has been tuned to generate 140 hp and 320 Nm, making it a powerful and rugged workhorse in rough terrains.
