Are you saying Force is taking bookings for the new 611?

Never trust any date promised by Force Motors until delivery.

Mr Anand Mahindra.

Please offer a 4x4 MM550 with the new CRDe Bolero engine, so I don't have to book a Gurkha again.

I beg thee..

Well this news that OM611 is in production is true but its not for domestic purpose as in last month they have produced 5 Armoured Trax with OM 611 engine. I know this because some parts to suite Om611 have changed one of which I supply. But it surely will take some more time for regular production ... will give some more details in this regards..

but good news that some 55 to 60 new models form force portfolio are coming in all range ... next coming is a strong competitor for Premier road star.

Did you mean "...that some 5 to 6 new models..."?
If indeed you meant 55 to 60 new models from Force, I guess you are referring to their product plans for the whole of this century

I think u r underestimating them... I am sure they are late but they are from a selected few who had done some wonders for road transport or passenger transport in india.


There basic aim is give carrying solutions at a very affordable cost to a common man in india. they have never ever aimed at us hence we fill the pinch having such good setup why r they not providing some good models.


After all its your view I cannot change that but I can surely pass on some info to modify your view.


Yups the next model would in @ 2ton carrying capacity range.

I think Blue Thunder was joking man. But seriously we would all welcome competition in the SUV/MUV category. It can only be good for the consumer.

Force just needs more fire in the belly to compete with Mahindra and Tata.

Default Acutaully owning a Gurkha Off Roading

After waiting for 6 years for getting a Gurkha I finally got mine in Jan this year. After 9 months and 10,000kms on her till date I must say that I am very satisfied. This monsoon I had gone on a camping trip on the Rajmachi hills with a few collegues. River crossins, hill climbing and off roading was simply out of the world experience with the sturdy Gurkha. I have used all its various functions of 4WD high, low, diff locks both in front and back. In one of the river crossing the water was upto the headlight however with the snorkel breating above the windscreen it was wonderful to scare campers who were waiting for it to stop! Howvere the EDC does not take kindly to water and will stall the engine completely if one of the three engine sensors get immersed in water. So new Gurkha beware of water!
Will post a few pics if you guys want to have a look.
By the way just got my Original Gurkha Manual today. 75BHP looked a little on the lesser side I must say. For its massive 1.67Ton weight it sure looks under powered.
With best rgds,
Andy

Autocar India is not a bible of offroading,i was disappointed to read their offroading test.

According to their limited knowledge pajero comes with Differential locks but it only comes with center differential lock and a Limited Slip Differential at rear and a open differential at front.

Would love to see your pics Andy. Bajaj Tempo (now Force) created the entire new category called Matador when it was launched (I think it had a Merc collaboration/design), which was taken over much later by Tata's 407 because it was way cheaper, having compromised on quality of everything in that vehicle and the Matadors couldn't compete. Changing emission norm was also an issue. Also Force's engineering strengths are not so great. They can't modify their designs in keeping with the demands of the time.
But end of the day it is an ethical company with good manufacturing practises.
