Force Motors has unveiled its all-New Gurkha 2021 on its social media platforms. Force Gurkha 2021 is built on a ground-up modular architecture platform. It is broader and more extended, complete new interiors, new crash compliance, C-in-C chassis, new coil spring suspension on all four wheels for tarmac, rough rural roads and off the road. Force Gurkha 2021 retains the Mercedes G-Wagen inspired looks.
The F-Logo on the front grille has been changed, and on the sides, a new mnemonic is added. The Khukri on the Brand logo is now at the right to align at the same angle as the air intake snorkel.
Gurkha 2021 features full L.E.D Force Pro Edge headlamps (pilot lamp, low-beam and high-beam), jewel-like, broken circle DRLs and fender-mounted L.E.D. Indicators for nighttime visibility.
The airbag is available for both the driver and the co-passenger; and has an all-metal top for safety. The three passenger seats are ISOFIX compatible seats. A.B.S. and EBD are now offered as standard fitment.
The turbocharged diesel engine is a Mercedes 2.6 litre 91bhp derived common rail, direct injection. It gives sufficient low-end torque (250Nm @1400 – 2400 rpm) to negotiate slopes of 35 degrees in 4×4 low first gear in the crawl mode and wade through streams of up to 700mm depth. The new power train meets the BS6 norms using the Lean N.O.X. trap, which eliminates the need for Ad Blue. The 5-speed Mercedes G-28 transmission with cable shift and the hydraulically activated clutch with booster offers the shortest turning circle radius of just 5.65m.
