    The Force Gurkha is no doubt a very capable off road vehicle. With its front and rear differential locks, four wheel drive system and torquey engine the Force Gurkha is in its own league while going off road. Sadly its strong point along with its tough cabin end here. Everything else about the SUV is quite spartan at best. Force Read More

    Best off road vehicle i have driven. Better quality than thar. More features for off roading also. For slow crawling over rocks this vehicle has good features. I drive off road in my farm in Kerala and performance is satisfactry. I enjoy long drive around hills and can take off road anywhere. The snorkle helps in going in water and Read More

Review of Force Gurkha

 The Gurkha made its appearance way back in 2008 when it was manufactured for export with only a handful of units being given to Indian customers. Fast forward to 2011 and the company rolled out its big offering, the ‘One’ – the 4×4 version is expected later this year and least to say, we are looking forward to that! The Gurkha in the meantime was revived and over the last two years, much work has gone into improving the good old product in all respects. The new Gurkha is largely based on the older model – it still makes use of the same chassis and the body. This isn’t a bad thing as the original Gurkha was designed on the lines of the legendary Mercedes Benz G Wagon and in the middle of nowhere, this vehicle will surely look appealing. Changes on the exteriors include new bumpers, foot board, grille and that lovely functional snorkel. Alloy wheels are borrowed from the Force One and on avail are both 3-door hard-top and a soft top version. Step in, or rather, climb in and the first thing that takes you by surprise is the overall up-market feel for a SUV of this segment. The two-tone seats for example match the two-tone colour combination of the interiors. The fascia design has been changed as compared to the older model and looks far pleasing than its main rival, the Mahindra Thar. It also offers a lockable glovebox and the tachometer sits in the middle of the fascia. The Gurkha still makes use of the same Mercedes licensed OM616 four cylinder unit. Much work has been done to make sure both power and torque take a bump. The 2596cc makes a maximum power of 80PS at 3200rpm along with a maximum torque of 230Nm at 1800 rpm. This is transferred to the wheels via a G1 18/5B gearbox. The engine does the trick automatically and all you need to do is lock the differentials, select 4x4L, slot into first and let off the clutch. This thing will give actually challenge mountain goats up a rocky hill side no matter what terrain it is on! For the uninitiated, the differential lock helps come out of situations when one or more of the wheels are slipping on soft ground or in air due to undulating terrain and unable to generate enough traction to move forward. The 210mm ground clearance and 550mm wading depth further give the Gurkha a complete clear edge over the Thar. Lastly, enthusiasts who love venturing into the unknown like jungle trails, mining areas etc will also love the 37 degree approach angle and 34 degree departure angle – possible due to short overhangs. Prices for the Gurkha 4X2 start at Rs 6.25 lakhs (Soft Top) and go up to Rs 8.5 lakhs for the 4x4 hardtop, ex-showroom Delhi. For a detailed analysis read below.

Interior

 Step in, or rather, climb in and the first thing that takes you by surprise is the overall up-market feel for a SUV of this segment. The two-tone seats for example match the two-tone colour combination of the interiors. Finished in a mix of black and beige, they also offer high comfort though the arm-rest didn’t seem to function properly on our test vehicle. The fascia design has been changed as compared to the older model and looks far pleasing than its main rival, the Mahindra Thar. It also offers a lockable glovebox and the tachometer sits in the middle of the fascia. The standard air-con seems to work well in the 40+ degree heat though the fan seemed to be too noisy at full speed.  The Gurkha makes use of hard-core 4×4 mechanicals here. The middle of the longest lever is ofcourse the conventional gear lever. On its right sit two smaller levers which are used to lock the front and rear differentials independently. Lastly, the lever on the right of the hand brake is for shifting from 4×2 to 4x4H or 4x4L. 

 

  • What we like

     Better than the Thar and much better than previous

  • What we dislike

     Quality can be better

Exterior

 The new Gurkha is largely based on the older model – it still makes use of the same chassis and the body. This isn’t a bad thing as the original Gurkha was designed on the lines of the legendary Mercedes Benz G Wagon and in the middle of nowhere, this vehicle will surely look appealing. Changes on the exteriors include new bumpers, foot board, grille and that lovely functional snorkel. Alloy wheels are borrowed from the Force One and on avail are both 3-door hard-top and a soft top version. Interesting bits of exterior elements include the two Gurkha badges – one under the front windshield and one at the back. The Gurkha comes standard with front fog lamps and the exhaust outlet in front of the rear right tyre looks unique. The high ground clearance and all-terrain tyres add a touch of ‘macho-ness’ to the Gurkha.

  • What we like

     Looks have their own charm

  • What we dislike

     Earlier version was more handsome?

Comfort Suspension

 The OM616 engine isn’t very smooth or refined. However this could also be blamed on the overall NVH levels. It goes over bad roads very well and just lords over them.

  • What we like

     Much better now

  • What we dislike

     Ride could be better

Engine Performance

 The Gurkha still makes use of the same Mercedes licensed OM616 four cylinder unit. Much work has been done to make sure both power and torque take a bump. The 2596cc makes a maximum power of 80PS at 3200rpm along with a maximum torque of 230Nm at 1800 rpm. This is transferred to the wheels via a G1 18/5B gearbox.

  • What we like

     Has decent grunt

  • What we dislike

     Needs more power

Braking Safety

 The engine does the trick automatically and all you need to do is lock the differentials, select 4x4L, slot into first and let off the clutch. This thing will give actually challenge mountain goats up a rocky hill side no matter what terrain it is on! For the uninitiated, the differential lock helps come out of situations when one or more of the wheels are slipping on soft ground or in air due to undulating terrain and unable to generate enough traction to move forward. The 210mm ground clearance and 550mm wading depth further give the Gurkha a complete clear edge over the Thar. Lastly, enthusiasts who love venturing into the unknown like jungle trails, mining areas etc will also love the 37 degree approach angle and 34 degree departure angle – possible due to short overhangs.

 

  • What we like

     Brilliant off-road

  • What we dislike

     Could be better on-road

Force Gurkha might get BS-IV compliant 2.2-litre diesel engine, offering more power

The Gurkha features independently locking front and rear differentials Force Motors introduced the Gurkha model in the country back in 2013. The SUV did not really get going and was flaked by a lot of negative feedback in the market. Force worked on the feedback, improved the vehicle and launched it late last year. At present, the Gurkha SUV derives power from a BS-III compliant 2.6-litre OM616-based diesel mill. This engine puts out 82 PS and comes paired to a five-speed manual gearbox. The Gurkha is a very capable off-roader and is known for the sheer value for money that... Read More
