Force Motors’ is all set to launch the true extreme off-roader Gurkha in the country in September 2014. The bookings for the vehicle will start from the day it will go on sale. Force Gurkha will be available in 3 attractive colours and 2 variants viz hard top and soft top.
The Gurkha is equipped with several important features which make it unique in its segment as it is the only vehicle that comes equipped with Differential Locks on both front and rear axles. The air intake “Snorkel” in chrome finishes which ensures proper supply of fresh air to the engine even while water wading. It has best-in class ground clearance, hard top and power steering makes it easier to drive it through rugged Indian terrains.
Under the hood, the Gurkha gets the 2.6-litre Mercedes OM 616 derived turbo charged intercooled engine which is paired to a 5-speed synchromesh transmission and 4WD with Hi-Lo option. With its crawler, the Gurkha can climb up the steep gradients without even stepping on the accelerator; its ECU automatically senses the terrain and supplies fuel accordingly. Spring-over-Axle, distinctive to Gurkha, gives it improved clearance and off-roading capabilities.
Force Motors Managing Director, Mr. Prasan Firodia said, “The feedback received from auto experts and select group of users during test drives has helped us further fine tune the Force Gurkha into an extremely capable off roader.”
