      About Force Motors Gurkha


      Force Motors has launched the all-new Gurkha in India. Restyled to look more modern and fresh, the 2021 Gurkha also gets a completely revamped cabin and a BS6 compliant diesel engine. Yes, it is still a capable off-roader but while being so, attempts to provide a decent on-road experience.


      Appearance-wise, the new Force Gurkha does have a strong road presence. The elements such as the roof rack, air intake snorkel, and the chubby 16-inch wheels further add to the solid and robust appeal of the SUV. The front while retaining the silhouette looks modern with the circular LED headlamps, integrated DRLs and the dignified ‘Gurkha’ badge on the grille. On the side are the wide window panes that sadly, cannot be opened. At the rear are vertical tail lamps and a tailgate-mounted spare wheel.


      Inside, the cabin of the Gurkha gets a black-themed dashboard made in solid and rugged material. The seat upholstery and the door trims get a contrast dark grey shade while the centre holds the seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. In a bid to provide a modern feel to the cabin, Force Motors has inducted the Gurkha with features such as rear parking sensors, tyre pressure monitoring system, tilt and telescopic adjustable steering wheel, dual front airbags, USB charging ports for front and rear passengers, and central locking. The second row gets captain seats with individual armrests while the boot can gobble 500-litres of luggage. 

      Engine and Transmission 

      The all-new Gurkha is powered by a 2.6-litre in-line four-cylinder diesel engine mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. This motor produces 90bhp and 250Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the brand offers four-wheel drive as standard.

      Engine and Performance

      Engine Shot

      Powering the Gurkha is an updated, BS6 version of the familiar Mercedes-sourced 2.6-litre, four-cylinder, turbo-diesel motor. It now develops 90bhp of maximum power (+6bhp than before) and 250Nm of peak torque (+20Nm than before), but the focus for Force Motors was to make it more refined. Unless you open the front windows, the engine is not as noisy and the vibrations on the move are limited too – a big improvement from before. Even the five-speed manual gearbox has been worked upon to reduce the vibrations being felt on the gear lever and improve the shift action. Force Motors does not have any plans to offer an automatic gearbox for added convenience.

      Right Side View

      With its slow-revving nature and short gear ratios, the Gurkha is best driven using its torque curve which starts at a low 1,400rpm. With all that torque, the Gurkha can easily cruise at speeds around 80-100kmph, though overtakes will require some planning. Its utilitarian origins are evident thanks to the long throw, rubbery shifts of the gearbox – but at least the clutch is light and the bite point is easy to work with.

      Ride and Handling

      Left Front Three Quarter

      The ride quality has been improved, especially on the tarmac. The Gurkha now rolls less, is less fussy over broken patches or when encountering sudden road imperfections. But don’t expect this to match the ride quality offered by monocoque chassis pseudo-SUVs. The Gurkha is still more at home over broken tarmac or when the roads disappear completely – the way it smoothens the undulations out is unmatched and you can confidently drive fast over broken roads.

      However, rear-seat passengers will not find the ride of the Gurkha to be too pleasing as they sit directly over the rear axle and feel even the slightest movement. The ride is thankfully much better on smooth tarmac, but if they are being driven by an enthusiastic driver, the body roll and constant micro-movements could make them nauseous.

      Right Rear Three Quarter

      The legends about the Gurkha’s ability off the road will continue to be made – the terrain this one can handle even when in two-wheel drive mode is amazing for an off-road rookie like me. Add the 205mm of ground clearance, 700mm water-wading capacity, 35-degrees of gradeability, and manually activated front and rear locking differentials and the Gurkha achieves mountain-goat like surefootedness; making you feel like a driving hero.

      Comfort, Convenience, and Features


      Step inside the new Gurkha and you find that the design of the dashboard is much more cohesive than before and the materials used are better too.

      It’s better, but not so good that it can take on compact SUVs like the Kia Sonet. There are rough edges and utilitarian material is used all around the cabin. Welcome changes in terms of equipment include large analogue dials in the instrument cluster and a small digital driver information display, an extremely useful tyre pressure monitor, and the brand new seven-inch Kenwood touchscreen infotainment system. While the addition of a touchscreen makes the cabin look more upmarket and then it has the smartphone mirroring including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the interface is slow and the sound from the four-speaker system leaves much to be desired. The good thing is that you have a display for Google maps in your field of vision, hence, there are fewer chances of you getting lost in the urban and the actual jungle.

      Rear Seats

      The new Force Gurkha is a proper four-seater and unlike the Thar, this can actually seat four with reasonable comfort. The ingress and egress into the front seats have improved massively thanks to the larger doors. The passengers can use the rear sideways opening door to access the rear seats rather than try and clamber over the front passenger seat. However, this access may be restricted if you utilise the massive 500-litres boot space available behind the rear seats completely. This can be rectified by getting the roof rack from the official accessories list.

      Apart from the easier ingress/egress, the rake and reach adjustable steering wheel improves the ergonomics for shorter drivers. Those with larger frames like me will find the gap between the seat and the steering still a bit tight, and the almost Muzhumandu (Bharatnatyam) posture you have to adopt because of the tightly placed pedals means you don’t sit very comfortably, with long drives requiring more stops to stretch out.

      Rear Power Window Switches

      The view out is amazing thanks to the large windows all around, especially for the rear passengers wherein that massive rear side window lets in a lot of light to brighten up the cabin. You cannot open the window at all, so the front occupants will need to be disturbed to let in some fresh air on the move. With the one-touch down front windows, they should be able to comply with this request easily. There are no dedicated AC vents for the rear occupants, but the AC felt more than capable of cooling the cabin quickly during the short hot spells we encountered while shooting. But, we will have to test the Gurkha for a longer period to ascertain if those large fixed rear side windows make the cabin less comfortable in the summer.

      The rear seats cannot be adjusted to improve legroom, though seating two six-footers one behind the other shouldn’t be an issue. The seatback can be adjusted for recline and there’s a handy foldable armrest too. Passengers here will have to make do with lap belts though. The rear seats also feature ISOFIX child seat mounting points, which is a welcome addition for those looking to take their infants on adventures.

      Front Bumper

      Force Motors has developed the Gurkha extensively so that it complies with the latest crash test and pedestrian safety norms. This means the panels at the front are not made of metal anymore and there are crumple zones both at the front and rear. Equipment like ABS and EBD, seat-belt reminders, dual front airbags, speed-sensing door locks, central locking, and rear parking sensors are offered as standard too.


      Left Front Three Quarter

      There’s no denying the fact that the Gurkha looks like the modern take on a utilitarian version of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. But, unlike the previous-gen model, the new Gurkha looks unique when looked at from the side and the rear.

      At the front, the Gurkha now gets all-LED headlights which instantly make it look more premium while providing excellent illumination at night. The grille now proudly features the Gurkha nameplate on it rather than the Force Motors logo; saving some owners the trouble of getting one from the aftermarket.

      Right Side View

      The new Gurkha is 22mm wider, 20mm taller, and 124mm longer than before – and it shows. In spite of this, it looks more hunkered down than before. This is because of the bigger front bumper, better-integrated wheel fenders, lower wheel well gap, and less fussy design overall. On that note, we should mention that the alloy wheels and the 16-inch Apollo Apterra all-terrain tyres you see here are part of the official accessories list. Other accessories on this test unit include the front windshield guard and the roof rails.

      Left Rear Three Quarter

      The new window design all around, including the flush-fitting front windshield, large rear side-window, and the rear windshield, which merges seamlessly with the smaller glass elements at the rear, make the Gurkha look larger and more premium. And that should help the Gurkha fit in better in an urban environment and match the expectations of urban users that Force Motors hopes to attract.


      Side Badge

      The previous generation Gurkha three-door Explorer model cost Rs 13 lakh on-road in Delhi by the time it was discontinued. Now, if its replacement is priced close to Mahindra Thar whose AX Diesel MT Hardtop costs about Rs 16 lakh on-road in Delhi, we don’t see the Gurkha offering enough to tempt their target customers away from the Mahindra.

      This Gurkha is much better than before - in terms of refinement, features, and on-road dynamics. It is at home both in the urban jungle and in the real one. But for this to become the sales success that Force Motors hopes it will be – the company has to get the right price and service network, as well as make sure more people get to see this SUV on the road. All in all, it needs to be more than just the stuff of legends.
