This one looks a lot li8ke the G wagen only a few body changes. The G wagens are so rare in India and I have been looking for one forever.

Anyone here driven both the G and the Gurkha? how differenty are their offroading capabilities?

PM Gurkha. He is in US right now. He has the experience of driving both extensively.

Wish Force Motors had stuck the classic circular headlights look. Merc still has it. Instead they did a Bolero on the Gama. Make it less attractive than the earlier version.

what i know is that force tie-up with merc ended so they had to give away those round headlights, and no doubt they looked better.

Yeah, me too. I suppose they could be retro fitted. Another thing I like is those large and sturdy side mirrors. Good and quick visibility to the rear.

Daaang! That is one fine vehicle. And those round headlights look so much better than the current square ones. I guess a round feature on an other-wise boxy vehicle gives some visual appeal.

I gave up on trying to buy a GAMA and am almost decided on a Bolero Plus, but these pictures are now causing me to pause and reconsider. If only Force wasn't so difficult to deal with

Sorry if this is off-topic, but one question to you experts. A GAMA with 4WD but no AC or PS costs Rs 6.24L ex-showroom here in my town, and that is with the 60hp BS-II engine. I felt it was a bit over-priced. Do you guys think that is a reasonable price? or rather... is it worth the price?

If it is with the full-differential-locks on both axles, then I would say it is worth it.

Nope, no differential-locks on the GAMA 4WD.

Force Motors site seems to be hacked. Just check the link below and observe the news heading.

...::: Welcome to the News section of Force Motors :::...

Someone had hached my site in a similar manner and I lost lots of data.

The really sad part is that these guys won't even know about this until a couple of years from now.

Yes. You are getting a lot of metal for that price. It's large. You might be able to upgrade it later, 'ay?

I think Force contracts out their I.T. work to Kamal's Tea Shop and Whoopy Parlor. Kamal also does M&M and Tata web sites.

Default Test Drive

I wanted to buy the Gurkha and went for the test drive it is like a torque factory. Very nice, but, if you dont mind shoddy interiors, no temperature control, or other creature comforts its for you for only 9.5lakh on road Bangalore. I would love to buy one but not for that price
