Force Motors has teased the new Gurkha 5-door on social media, hinting at its upcoming launch. The SUV retains the boxy and bold appearance of its three-door sibling, which is also getting a makeover, according to the most recent teaser. The new 5-door variant sports circular LED headlamps with LED DRLs and a grille with the 'Gurkha' logo, similar to the 3-door model. To make the SUV stand out, the Pune-based automaker could make some changes to the front and rear sections. The fresh alloy wheel design and other functional features, such as a snorkel, a roof rack with a jerry can holder and a rear ladder, can also be seen in the new teaser. Let's look at the likely features of the upcoming model in more detail.
