Force Motors has brought to the fore its new 4x4x4 Extreme Offroader vehicle which is on display at the SIAM International Bus and Utility Show in Greater Noida. Named as the Gurkha, this rough and ready vehicle is fitted with a 2.6 liter Mercedes OM 616 engine offering 82 PS power at 3200 rpm and 230 Nm torque at 1800-2000 rpm. The engine is mated to a five speed synchromesh transmission with Hi – Lo option.
Gurkha displays excellent ground clearance at 210 mm which ensures that it can tackle all sorts of terrain. It also comes with a Snorkel intake in chrome due to which it can cross comfortable across shallow water bodies. The vehicle itself is rugged and yet comfortable across rough terrain. Interiors are fitted with air conditioning and power steering while a sporty looking instrument console hogs the limelight. Seats are in dual tone with reclining facility for greater comforts.
Coming in three attractive color options and sold through company’s personal vehicle dealership networks, the Gurkha is priced at INE 6.25 lakhs for the 4×2 soft top, INR 8.35 lakhs for the 4×4 soft top and top of the line 4×4 hard top is priced at INR 8.50 lakhs.
Mr. Prasan Firodia, MD Force Motors said, “The vastly superior gradeability and its ability to negotiate undulating terrain makes the Gurkha an ideal vehicle for ‘off road’ conditions. The macho looking Gurkha has timeless classic appeal that would interest off-road enthusiasts across the nation.”
