Mileage figures and variant details of Force Gurkha SUV revealed
Force Motors has revealed that the 2021 Gurkha SUV, which was launched in India last month, delivers a mileage of 10-12km/liter in 4x2 mode and 8-10km/liter in 4x4 configuration. Currently, the Gurkha is available in a single trim but going forward, it will be offered in a 3-door, 4-seater variant with 4x4 and 4x2 drivetrains and 5-door, 7-seater model with 4x4 and 4x2 drivetrains.
The Force Gurkha flaunts a rectangular grille with "GURKHA" lettering, a snorkel, a roof rack, black-colored bumpers, circular LED headlights, and fender-mounted turn indicators. On the sides, it is flanked by black ORVMs, flared wheel arches, and 16-inch wheels. A door-mounted spare wheel and vertically positioned taillights grace the rear section. Dimensions-wise, the SUV is 4,116mm long and has a wheelbase of 2,400mm.
The Force Gurkha is powered by a BS6-compliant 2.6-liter, 4-cylinder diesel engine that generates a maximum power of 91hp and a peak torque of 250Nm. The mill is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox for handling transmission duties.
The Force Gurkha has a practical cabin with fabric upholstery, parking sensors, circular AC vents, four captain seats, a 3-spoke steering wheel, and power windows. The SUV packs a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment console with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Twin airbags, ABS, EBD, a tire pressure monitoring system, an engine immobilizer, and a speed-sensing auto door lock ensure the passengers' safety.
In India, the 2021 Force Gurkha is available in a single fully-loaded trim and sports a price-figure of Rs. 13.59 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). At this price-point, the car goes against rivals such as the Mahindra Thar.
