2021 Force Gurkha, engine, specifications
The 2021 Force Gurkha is based on a new C in C ladder frame architecture, on which sits a new body. The 4x4 is powered by a 2.6-litre Mercedes-derived four-cylinder turbo-diesel that pairs with a five-speed manual and puts out 91PS and 250 Nm. The Gurkha sits on independent front suspension and a multi-link rigid live axle suspension at the rear. The heavy-duty offroading kit seen here is the four-wheel drive with a low-ratio transfer case as well as front and rear mechanical differential locks.
2021 Force Gurkha features, accessories
The Gurkha comes with a much longer list of features in this new iteration. Notable features available as standard on the single variant are all-LED headlamps, a 7-inch Kenwood touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto/Apple Carplay, TPMS, power windows and the tilt and telescopic steering. Safety features include two airbags, ABS, EBD and speed-sensitive door locks. The 2021 Force Gurkha will be available in five colour options with the options list including R16 alloy wheels, mud-terrain tyres, roof-rack, jerrycan and roof rails.
