Website back up now. Looks like they have rebranded the versions. Don't see any other changes.

That White Gurkha on the homepage is so inviting ! Will I start looking for one ? Time will tell


How do the two engines fare ? 2.2 vs 2.6 ? Is there sufficient power in the 2.2 ?

Purchased Gurkha xtreme last month and here are my initial thoughts after 1000 kms.

1. You will never feel under-powered. The 140hp engine really pulls well and is a joy to ride.
2. Good road presence, a real head turner.
3. Fit and finish of the body shell is not up-to the mark.
4. The biggest surprise, the service at trivandrum is actually good, at-least so far. Had some issues with differential lock indicator and they were all fixed very quickly.
5. Rear seats are a nightmare for elder people, but compared to thar, its better.
6. Though there is enough power to easily overtake vehicles, sharp turns will upset the stability. What i meas is that there is good amount of body roll.
7. Interior is really basic, but livable.

Overall, its a good vehicle, with a new interior layout, better fit and finish and a good marketing team, the BS6 Gurkha can challenge the new Thar. But in not sure if Force really cares about that rivalry.

Congratulations MohammedEza. Please post detailed pictures and reviews when you get time. I have a question for you. Why did you not try the used car route? Is it because you were particular about getting a new one or because you could not find any good examples?

Well its almost impossible to find used xtreme. Its just going to be one year since its launch. I did looked up for it but couldn't find any.

Soon will update with more details and photos, I am preparing an ownership thread on the same.

Well im suprised that they didnt go with the 2.2 engine. But who knows, force motors might launch a new model next year. i admire the effort they take to bring a new model every year even with such low sales.

Well said Bro. They always bring an 80% finished product and then keep making small incremental changes.



I suspect, they couldn't make the 2.2 BSVI compliant on time.

Looks like they have done something about the steering wheel angle. It does not look as parellel to the floor as before. Looks like a modern vehicle now with just that change.

Checked this today in person and the new one looks far better than the previous one. They will start deliveries from April. The side glass treatment reminds of Tata Sierra.

And then this effort

The side grill will be available as an accessory.

As seen on the displayed spec sheet, the name given is "Gurkha Standard". And Autocar India says Force may have different body styles in the offing. So can we expect a 5 door with a more powerful engine?

Also was there any Force Motors vehicle with BS-6 Diesel Engine other that 2.6 90hp?

So Force Motors have official beaten the Thar to the expo by having a BS6 ready, dual airbag compliant version with an updated dashboard (including touchscreen?) You have to hope that Mahindra revise the Thar significantly to justify their somewhat delayed launch. If they bring a Thar that just matches the new Gurkha in terms of equipment and capability, then the joke will surely be on Mahindra.
