The new Force Gurkha is powered by a BS6-compliant 2.6-litre four-cylinder diesel engine from Mercedes-Benz that produces 91 horsepower at 3,200 rpm and 250 Nm of peak torque between 1400 and 2400 rpm.
A five-speed Mercedes G-28 manual gearbox is available as an option, with four-wheel-drive (4WD) as standard. The new Force Gurkha boasts a 35-degree crawl-up angle and a 700-millimeter water-wading capacity.
3. Safety Features
Dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensor, cornering lamp, one-touch lane change indication, tyre pressure monitoring system, and follow-me-home and lead-me-to-vehicle headlamps are just a few of the safety features.
The Force Gurkha’s interior is decorated in a midnight black colour scheme with dark grey upholstery. A redesigned gear lever and 4X4 lever are also included, as well as a moulded floor mat, panoramic side windows, captain chairs, and a rear passenger armrest. A new 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system from Kenwood is available, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connection, as well as navigation with real USB mirroring.
