More info on the next-gen Force Gurkha; interior spied

The next-generation Force Gurkha is expected to be launched this festive season. It will compete with the Mahindra Thar.

More information about the next generation Force Gurkha has been floating on social media. It reportedly comes from a person who got to experience the off-roader first hand.

According to him, the 4-seat layout with separate captain seats for the 2-row is very comfortable. The all-black dashboard is new and comparable to the old Mahindra Thar. The car was equipped with a Kenwood stereo with a touchscreen, front and rear lockers, rear pintle hook, steps to the roof carrier and rear parking sensors.

The new Gurkha is expected to be powered by a 2.6-litre diesel engine producing 89 BHP and 260 Nm. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, a low range gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system.

The Gurkha will be offered with independent front suspension featuring double wishbones and a rigid axle at the rear.
