Force Gurkha has become costlier in India by Rs. 51,000
Force Motors has raised the price of its Gurkha SUV in India. After the latest revision in cost, the car has become expensive by Rs. 51,000. As for the highlights, the four-wheeler has a boxy look and a spacious feature-loaded cabin. Under the hood, it is fueled by a BS6-compliant 2.6-liter diesel engine that makes 89.8hp of power.
Why does this story matter?
- Force Gurkha is a lifestyle off-roader and this is its first price-revision since it went on sale in September 2021.
- Force Motors is the latest to join the list of automakers that raised the prices of their cars in India. Rising input costs must have prompted the move.
- However, the demand for the four-wheeler could decrease as customers might choose to wait for discounts.
