The new Force Gurkha | Soon to be launched in Nepal

Following the discontinuation of the current model of Force Gurkha in 2019, Force Motors is all set to make a comeback in Nepal, by launching the new Force Gurkha. The Gurkha’s upgraded version is built on Mercedes Benz’s G-Wagon platform and comes powered by an engine with the same capacity–FM 2.6L–but compliant to BS-VI emission norms.

Let’s get into the details.


Design

The boxy style SUV gets a stylish shark grill with a horizontally placed brand badge at the front. The vehicle gets three doors (two on the sides, one at the rear) whose windows provide wider visibility all-around. Furthermore, the matte black air-intake snorkel is Gurkha’s prominent feature that ensures its water-wading ability–up to 700mm–supplying fresh air for combustion.

As for lighting, the vehicle gets circular LED headlamps with (DRLs), fog lamps, and indicators on the bonnet, and at the rear it gets a combination of LED taillight and indicators. 

On the interior, the SUV boasts the best in-segment cabin space of 3900 litres. The vehicle can accommodate four people (including the driver) and still manage to provide 500 litres of cargo space. 

As for infotainment and connectivity, the vehicle comes equipped with a seven-inch infotainment system (compatible with Apple Carplay and Android Auto), which is connected to four speakers and features USB, FM, and bluetooth music and calling.


Engine and manoeuvrability 

Powering the Gurkha is a Mercedes-derived 2.6L CR CD engine (BSVI compliant) that generates a power of 67 kW (91 hp) at 3200 rpm and a torque of 250 Nm @ 1400-2400 rpm. The engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

The vehicle comes with a 4x4x4 drive system, which means the vehicle gets 4×4 high and 4×4 low levers for driving on low-traction roads and on extreme terrains (has 35-degree gradeability), respectively.

Features

Despite being an off-roader, the vehicle comes with plenty of convenience features such as tilt-and-telescopic steering, heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC), multi-direction AC vents, power windows, central-locking, 12V accessory socket, dual-USB socket on the dashboard and rear seats, variable speed-intermittent wiper, and interior-light dimming.

As for safety, the vehicle comes with two airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, one-touch lane-change indicator, cornering lamp, speed-sensing auto-door lock, and tyre-pressure monitoring system.


Force Gurkha price in Nepal

Unlike its predecessor, the new Force Gurkha comes in only one variant, which is powered by the 2.6L diesel engine. The off-roader SUV costs INR 14.1 lakh in India, which means the Force Gurkha’s price in Nepal is expected to be around Rs 65 lakh.
