^ Yes - The showroom has delayed the delivery date as well, for my friend, by 2-3 weeks. Keeping fingers crossed.

I hope the production version doesn't have the push-up bra that was put on the launch vehicles.

Hello all ,
this post is for the rumor mongers who have never driven Gurkha ,never owned one, but love to be critics of it.
in the following video the vehicles that attempted the climb which is on sandy rocky hill run up available 10 mtrs on a gradual slope and then sudden 50- 60 degree 20 meter climb, were thar crde, thar di owner know from start he could not do it so he did not attempt it,(GURKHA is Di), gypsy1.3, pajero,mm 550 with one of the best engines i have ever seen in one,
No of attempts by various vehicles trying to complete the climb and were succesful in last attempt.
thar -5
pajero -1
MM550 -3
Gurkha -1

i will like to add that whenever i go offroading on my jeep cj3b dieselised i need to ge to mechanic next day , but with gurkha touch wood its never happened till now .
i am sorry to cut paste the link from youtube as i could not figure out how to insert video from my computer.

^^ Did you forget to mention that the tyres you are running on are almost worn out, and that you did this twice in a row, and both times in single tries?

The plastic is for real - I thought it was a show gimmick for the launch.

I wonder how much it would cost to replace it with the standard Gurkha/Trax grille/bumper et al.

Score 1 for the Thar - at the very least there isnt anything you want to remove from it...

Actually, there is a lot. For starters, the bumpers, break VERY VERY easily on the Thar. I have seen this happen on at least 5 different Thars now.
However, this is not the thread to start comparing.

I am sold on the vehicle..i know the drawbacks but still it has huge advantages also. I would most definitely change quite a few aspects of the vehicle.

Most definitely the really ugly (in my personal opinion) front plastic grill and bumpers will go. I hope to replace it with the front look of the Gurkha with round headlights of the past whichwas closer to the G-Wagen DNA.

The interiors look pretty decent so far. I hope to see the vehicle in the flesh sometime this month and i promise to upload a whole lot of pics the very same day.

The fit and finish looks pretty good also. I hope some good colors are on offer. I would love a Military Green. The grill is a definite no no. I want to shake the lead designer by his collar!! Thankfully he did not meddle with the earlier look much. All he did was murder the front end which should not be too difficult or expensive to put right.

It seems that the car designer did a Koena Mitra/ Minissha Lamba Plastic surgery to the vehicle.

There seem gaps in the fitting of the interior panels, but, these won't take away all the capability of the vehicle IMO. I shall eagerly wait for your update on the vehicle.

How family friendly is the Gurkha? If one has a proper sedan for city use, will the Gurkha make sense for going to exotic tourist locations (where the 4x4 aspect will come in handy) in a Gurkha with family? The Force website is woefully silent on comfort features.

Thanks.

Please watch this, the girl doesnt know what kind of Cylinders she is talking about!

And when it comes to the COO (corp sales & mktg) of FM talking about Gurkha's competitors, he has not done his homework!
