Force 2024 Gurkha 5-Door SUV to Launch in April

Last Updated on April 23, 2024 by SPN Editor

In the realm of rugged off-road vehicles, anticipation reaches its peak as the Force Gurkha 5-door SUV prepares for its long-awaited debut in the latter half of April 2024. With the unveiling imminent, dealer sources hint at an eagerly awaited revelation: the pricing details, expected to emerge by month’s end.

The Force Gurkha, renowned for its robust capabilities and enduring charm, steps into a new era with its 5-door variant SUV. This evolution maintains the essence of the iconic off-roader while expanding its horizons to accommodate two additional doors and an extra row of seating.

Recent sightings of test mules unveil a spacious interior layout, with some models showcasing a third row of seats flanked by a middle-row bench, amplifying practicality and enhancing passenger and cargo space. Ensuring both safety and security, the vehicle boasts a full metal body structure, complemented by Force LED Pro Edge headlamps for optimal visibility during nocturnal adventures.

Inside, passengers are treated to generous head, leg, and shoulder room across the four captain seats, while the driver enjoys a commanding position with adjustable tilt and telescopic features for personalized comfort. Technological enhancements include a 17.78 cm touchscreen infotainment system equipped with Android Auto, Apple Carplay, navigation, and dedicated mobile charging points.

The BS6 Force Gurkha with its five doors will come equipped with circular LED headlamps featuring integrated LED daytime running lights (DRLs). Additionally, it will sport fender-mounted turn indicators. Notably, the vehicle will be equipped with manual differential locks for both the front and rear axles, which can be conveniently controlled using levers positioned on the center console.

In the realm of off-roading prowess, the Gurkha stands unrivaled. Mechanically actuated differential locks on both axles ensure adept navigation through challenging terrains, while an air intake snorkel facilitates water fording capabilities up to 700 mm, unmatched within its class. With a gradeability of 35° and a tight turning radius of 5.65 meters, maneuverability remains unparalleled.

Under the hood, expectations are high for the Gurkha 5-door SUV’s powertrain, anticipated to house a 2.6-liter diesel engine with enhanced performance capabilities, likely paired with a manual transmission.

Expected Price of Gurkha 5-Door SUV

As for pricing, speculations suggest a premium of over Rs 1 lakh compared to the 3-door Gurkha, currently priced at Rs 15.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Upon launch, the 5-door variant will carve a niche in the market, occupying a segment larger and pricier than the Maruti Jimny.

In the arena of competition, the Force Gurkha 5-door SUV will vie against formidable contenders such as the anticipated Mahindra Thar 5-door (potentially named the Thar Armada) and the Maruti Jimny.

In summary, the Force Gurkha 5-door SUV heralds a new era of off-road excellence, combining rugged capability with practicality, safety, and distinctive design. As the off-road enthusiasts eagerly await its arrival, anticipation brews for the adventures that lie ahead.
