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?
The only reason I can think of is Lower Introductory Price. That way they have a low cost low frill SUV to attract buyers. Later they will add
ABS - 30k?
Airbags - 20k?
4x4 - 1L?
so an 11L SUV becomes a 13L SUV

As far as looks concerned, I liked it. Much better than other Indian offers. Rest experts are here to comment.

Looks wise its not bad. Power wise 2050kg agains 130 horses looks a bit too lean. Ultimately a test ride should expel most of the questions. The interior and exterior looks awesome.

On first sight it looks like an imitation Endeavour. Especially the etching on the front grille.

On other lines, anyone think this is an MUV? Given the price range and features, it competes with the 2wd Scorpios, Safaris, Grandes et al?

Frankly by looks alone it looks better than Scorp or Safari especially in the proportions,though the front and rear styling are not that great,the size makes up for it.And yeah, looks more like a wannabe 'Scalade.
But a big psychological barrier is there for me, it's China relation. A chinese car??? If it was so much an indigenous project going by the development of the chassis n house, why not do the body shell themselves?

Whats the deal with that force one logo at that weird place? I can't really dream of placing it there.
But over all I like it. Lets hope its tough as nails. But given the Chinese connection will have to wait and see. Team-BHP review??

And Big B here also?

Spoke to Bangalore dealership. They are expecting the first demo vehicle by End of Month. Not sure of delivery time. The price seems to be around 11L ex showroom.

Surprisingly the force motors website is not updated on this vehicle.

Suddenly the 12year old INDIAN made TATA Safari looks Very VALUE for MONEY!! Dont care about its un-reliability or other horror stories, but Safari any day!! Of course there is scorpio for those who want a shorter Indian SUV. But 10.5ExSh (12L OTR) for a chinese wont hit the right notes amongst us guyz.

To me it looks like a cheap imitation of Ford explorer/expedition!

Side profile looks very good, but front and rear look already dated.

Look at the side profile! source: Zigwheels

All of a sudden 2WD Tata Aria looks competitively priced.
If I was to spend more than 10 lacs on a vehicle, unless I got a really good deal, I would look at the brand heritage. Force does not have it.
Why should anyone prefer this over the Safari GX or Scorpio SLE for that matter is beyond me.

Good find! Looks really long; hard to believe the length is shorter than the Endeavour (4860 vs 5060).

BTW, anyone know if Force will be offering this to Commercial Cab and Tourist operators? I can imgaine a whole lot of it hitting the roads if yes.
