Well nobody knows what Force is upto, hence the discussion went on to ridiculous stuff like the Trekker.

I know Samurai has been waiting with his bated breath for quite some time now - I wish Force will say something and allow him to breathe.

I am in line for a Judo with OM611, have talked to Force insiders and looks like they would be delivering them after the auto show.

i had been to navnit motors at bhiwandi i had gone for the test drive of a trax gama euro2 version DI it was made as per order fitted witha 4WD. as per me the engine doesnt look that great as compared with gurkha. its too noisy & lots of vibration but it might improve after sometime. i had look at the new VP37 model the euro 3 model it was fitted in a traveller its got a original imported BOSCH processor , the engine looks good more smooth than the euro2 . i hope the gurkha comes with that engine

BS-II engine is much weaker, just 158Nm compared 195Nm of BS-III engine. What are your chances of wading in 3 feet of water? I say stick with BS-III.

The latest delivery date announced is July end, it is always next month, so the saga continues.

I had a look at this thread yesterday - read few posts and today I cant resist myselft to finish all 250 posts.
Looks like lot of us have booked Gurkha and still do not have idea what kind of engine it would be..
However, its good to know a lot of things about Force / Trax here and Now I have got a different image about Safari / Bolero or anyother 4x4 once I learned about Gurkha.
I wish I can own one.. I will start saving money for this one soon

Just had a chat with the Force Motor guys in Delhi about availability of Trax Gurkha/Judo. I was informed thus that Force Motors can only make these models upon completion of 50/100 numbers in its order books. And any model of 4X4 ordered whether it be on Gama/Ambulance/Kargo/whatever or basically anything that would have to be built seperately would take lot of time.

I was told that even the Gama Cruiser would take exactly same time as Gurkha/Judo models if ordered with 4X4.

The contact person also told me that if any Army/BSF/Export/UN orders for Judo/Gurkha materialized then any personal/individual order could be pushed through along with that. So delivery depends upon whether someone has ordered a large number of vehicles at the opportune time/muhoorat or not. For any 4X4 model of Trax the waiting list is 4 months as of today.

In short bahut gadbad hai bhai...

Ashu, if there is some news, people will post. No point in asking for it every few days. If my cousin ever gets his delivery, I'll be the first one to post about it.

I guess this also depends on the final drive ratios. Probably why heavier cars & trucks could benifit from a 6th Gear. IMHO, this would enable the car to cruise at lower rpm's . And down shift if we need more torque / bhp to tackle overtaking or inclines.

Some news,

Force motors is in process of changing the whole chassis of Trax range... from the rugged Tubular chassis to the C channel ladder type chassis.

The new trax which was going to come with new engine / gearbox / interiors / exteriors will now also have new chassis.

They want to implement it from November 07 but may take February or March 08 to complete development.
