The Gurkhas are the most well-known members of the Force. They do, however, sell the Trax Cruiser, which is often purchased in the business sector. Here’s a full video on one of India’s largest and most cheap MUVs.
The video is uploaded on YouTube by Auto Models. The host first shows us the engine. It is the same unit that is doing duty on the Gurkha. So, it is a 2.6-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 90 Ps of max power and 250 Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission only. The host says that the bonnet of the Trax Cruiser is quite heavy. There is also insulation on the underside of the bonnet which reduces the sound of diesel clatter from entering the cabin. However, that does not really do a good job because there are a lot of vibrations and diesel clatter that still creeps into the cabin.

The Force Trax Cruiser appears to be a standard SUV. As a result, it’s boxy with straight lines. There are square-shaped halogen headlamps with turn indicators. The grille is quite large and square, there are also reflector strips on the sides of the Force badging and beneath the headlamps. There are foglamp housings but the foglamps are missing. However, you can get fog lamps as they are optional.
The Trax Cruiser has a large 3,050 mm wheelbase. It measures 5,120 mm in length, 1,818 mm in width, and 2,027 mm in height. It features a 160 mm or 191 mm ground clearance. Trax Cruiser is a 3.1-tonne monster. It has a 63.5-litre gasoline tank. Power windows, power steering, central locking, air conditioning, and more features are included.
A normal key is included with the MUV. Force comes with three keys in total, but no central locking system. Steel rims with 215/75 R15 tyres may be found on the side. There are additional side steps that assist with access and egress. The grab handles positioned on the A and B pillars are considerably more helpful. The SUV also has body covering that runs the length of the vehicle. Outside, you’ll find black rearview mirrors that you’ll need to adjust from the outside. Vertically stacked tail lamps, four parking sensors, reflector strips, and a spare tyre are installed at the back. The back occupants can climb inside using their own footstep because the tailgate opens horizontally.
The host then descends into the interior, which is rather simple. The host claims that there is enough of under-thigh support, although legroom in the second seat is limited. Then he gets two seats in the third row, which are accessible by opening the tailgate. A grab hold is attached on the D-pillar, making it easier to reach inside. The third row is installed sideways, which makes it unsafe in the event of an accident. The third row can accommodate four passengers, however legroom is limited.
