Rumour: 2021 Force Gurkha to get 6-seat & 8-seat options

The 5-door version of the Gurkha could compete with the 5-door Mahindra Thar.

The new generation Force Gurkha was launched earlier this year. Now, there are rumours that the SUV could be offered in 6-seat and 8-seat configurations as well.

At present, the Gurkha is only available in a 3-door body style and 4-seats, which include captain seats for the second row. If you recall, the previous generation Gurkha came in Xtreme and Xplorer and Xpedition version in 3-door and 5-door body styles.

The 5-door Gurkha is likely to get the same engine and running gear as the 3-door version. These include a 2.6-litre diesel engine producing 90 BHP and 250 Nm, 5-speed manual transmission with low range and an all-wheel drive system with differential locks on all four wheels.

The 5-door version of the Gurkha could compete with the 5-door Mahindra Thar, which is already in the works.
