I'm a bit confused here. So the present engine is a high performance engine. Always thought it's the low performance merc derived engine.
Going by what you have written there will be two even lower performance engines. And I thought this was the rock bottom!!

What in gods name is 4x4x4 ? Does the Front and Rear Diff Locks signify the last 4 ?

The present engine is BS3 & low performance.

A same 2650 CC size engine would be offered which would be low performance.

A mid 2000 CC with mid performance would be offered.

A high 2200 CC with high performance would be offered.

Ah that clears it. Hope they do something about the 1980 Haryana Roadways Bus steering wheel and gearbox and suspension.

It might be super off-road but it has to be half decent on the road. This is utter crap.
Anyone who wants to appreciate the work of any vehicle sold in India should first take a test drive of this vehicle. This is downright the biggest waste of Rs.8.75 Lakhs Ex-showroom that anyone would ever make!

I was a bit harsh above but today in this age and day, that vehicle is like making a fool of the customer and laughing at him too!
Navpreet, thanks for your honest feedback. Now you can add a few names to your enemy list

So that is the fate of the most "Family friendly offroader" which money can buy.

Was hoping to read their views as well, wonder where they have disappeared. On a lighter note, sometimes I feel, the name Gurkha was really inspired by the word Burkha.

Prost

Thanks Pratheesh. Yes already have been receiving the brickbats on Facebook by the fanboys. Some of them highly regarded people who I now consider clinical psychopaths. But fact remains it is a bad vehicle and is out there for every one test and judge for themselves.
The owner of showroom locally had initially used the Gurkha as his daily drive. Even he has denounced it after a week of use and has booked a Scorpio 4wd. Haha. Speaks volumes!

This custom version was on display at the Gurkha launch. See this link.

Most probably it didn't find a buyer, so some Force Motors staffer (staying in your building) uses it as a personal vehicle.

Can some one please implant the teeth of Cars Mater on this Gurkha?

It will complete the transformation of Gurkha.

Looks like your complex bought a new roadsweeper - make sure you compliment your resident's association secretary for this.

Such brave team of staff from Force Motors,

1. People who plan such contraptions
2. People who approve such contraptions
3. People who execute such contraptions

and
4. People who buy such contraptions.

I must say, this contraption puts DC into 2nd category
