Force Motors Gurkha Highlights
The Force Motors Gurkha is not as common as some of you might imagine it to be. For something that's as crude, not as refined as other SUVs, and boxy, the Gurkha is aimed at an audience that is inclined to go off-roading without having to fear that things may fall apart. Its built-to-last structure and tough off-roading credentials make it quite appealing, particularly if one had to keep in mind that it comes with a factory-fitted snorkel.
The Gurkha is full of straight lines and flat panels, although the wide body does look quite appealing. Up-front, it gets circular headlamps covered by a multi-bar grille and a rectangular radiator grille. Also, there's a bullbar in the front with 'Gurkha' inscribed on it. The slab-like bonnet looks solid. And all the accessories, like the roof-mounted shovel and an axe, add to its rugged character. The side profile consists of flared wheel arches and camper van-like windows. At the rear, you'll find a tail-mounted spare wheel and a ladder with a jerry can holder. The Gurkha gets independent front suspension and is built on a ladder-frame chassis.
The Force Motors Gurkha variants available in three-door and five-door versions are as follows: Xpedition, Xplorer and Xtreme. Features include fabric upholstery, air-conditioning, power steering, adjustable seats, front cup holders and engine immobilizer. On the safety front, it comes with a child safety lock and seat belts for the driver and front passenger.
Step into the cabin, and everything appears a bit too basic. The dashboard is rather simple but seems well put together. The tachometer can be seen in between the central AC vents, while the instrument cluster is rather plain but easy to read. The quality and fit-and-finish of plastics is alright. The air-conditioning works fine for as long as the vehicle is in motion. Cubby holes aren't aplenty, but there's a 12V charging socket. The high-set driving position is great, allowing for a good view of the road. At the front, the seats provide decent support, while the cushioning is pretty good too. At the rear, the two side-facing seats could've offered a bit more in terms of comfort, and while you don't get any seatbelts for occupants at the rear, there are roof-mounted grab-handles to cling on to. The Gurkha is available in 4+1, 5+1 and 7+1 seating configurations.
Engine Specifications & Performance
The Force Gurkha is powered by a 2.6-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine that makes 85bhp and 230Nm of torque. Paired to the engine is a 5-speed manual gearbox. The motor is quite coarse and loud, and a lot of it can be heard in the cabin. On the highway, the Gurkha feels like it struggles a bit to pick up pace, but it manages to reach 80kph without too much effort. Off the road, the Gurkha tackles every obstacle without any fuss. In 2-wheel-drive, the SUV climbs really well, but the levers for the locking differentials need some muscle to use. The gear shifts are heavy, but thank fully, the clutch is light. Around corners, body roll is evident, but high-speed stability is quite good. And the steering feels a bit heavy. Ride quality is impressive, as the Gurkha manages to deal with all kinds of undulations very easily. Even the tyres provide good grip.
The Force Gurkha's ARAI-certified fuel efficiency figure is rated at 17kmpl for the diesel model.
