Yes, no Air-bags or even ABS at launch. For a vehicle this size (4860mm long) and weight (2510 kg) with 140hp & 320 N-m, stopping would be very very critical. No ABS is disappointing. I hope it atleast has good disc brakes all around.

Looks like Force kind of rushed into the launch without fully testing all components of the vehicle. They need to find a suitable ABS system and test it before they can offer it.

Just Announced: PRICE - 10.65 Lakhs ex-showroom. A bit ambitious in my opinion.

Seems like they announced the pricing.

10.65L

They are scared of Mahindra w201 and Marlin. Hence wanted to take early bird advantage.

Might be that with all that bulk, sure stopping is not a tempo driver's priority? "I'm not braking, you clear out" is the typical tempo attitude? The Traveler, whilst being a very good passenger vehicle, has always had braking issues. Might be that the brake issue is a family trait.

The price seems to be OK. You pay that for an imitation Endeavor. The same money buys you a Tata Safari GX (has ABS) or an Innova GX (no ABS). And we cannot find fault with Force's engines.

Edit: On second thoughts, is this a duplicate Escalade rather than an imitation Endeavor?

I liked the way they have made it. Looks decent as compared to its chinese counterpart. Really loved the front look and side profile.

10.65 ex-showroom is a decent enough price IMO.
The SUV does look robust, has a good stance. A bit like the Nissan Navarra from some angles though.
What I did not understand is the wait for a ABS/EBD enabled model. Why 1 year?
