New Force Gurkha: Known
this New Gurkha, Although it is similar in design to the upcoming model and has a boxy appearance, some changes have already taken place. The body shell is brand new, and the chassis has been upgraded to meet the latest safety regulations. Compared to its predecessor, significant styling updates include new LED headlights with daytime running lights, improved grille, new bumper, larger rear passenger windows and wider rear windshield. Like its predecessor, the new Gurkha will also be equipped with a snorkel and wear a 4x4x4 badge.
The cabin is also a higher level than before, with more material comforts, including the forward-facing captain’s seat at the rear, which replaces the side bench of its predecessor. There is also a pair of jumping seats at the rear of the show car, but it remains to be seen whether they meet the standards. The SUV at the Auto Expo has a two-tone interior, but in a series of previews released by the company, the production-spec SUV appears to have a matte black instrument panel and center console.
Force Motors also confirmed Gurkha’s list of upgraded features, including a touch screen infotainment system-the first of an SUV, the aforementioned LED headlights, separate armrests for rear passengers, rear wipers and air conditioning.
In addition, Force Motors will provide a long list of customization options for the new Gurkha to increase sales of off-road vehicles.

At the Auto Expo, Force Motors confirmed that the new Gurkha will inherit the old 90hp, 260Nm, 2.6-liter diesel engine and upgrade to meet BS6 specifications.
