Thar and Jimny Under Siege: Gurkha’s Mercedes Engine Poses a Real Challenge

This is the fiercest rival of the Mahindra Thar and Jimny; it boasts a Mercedes engine and was released at an unbelievable price. The Indian market is expanding steadily, and off-roading is currently becoming very popular there. Additionally, there are plenty of top-notch off-road vehicles on the Indian market, including a Force Gurkha, to maintain this off-roading.

In the Indian market, Force Gurkha faces off against Mahindra Thar and Maruti Suzuki Jimny. However, the lack of a manual differential lock in both of them is a blessing for off-road enthusiasts.

Let’s examine the features and engine options available for the Force Gurkha.

Force Gurkha

In India, the Force Gurkha may be purchased for Rs 15.10 lakh ex-showroom. There are four seats in the Gurkha, and the interior has been designed to resemble an off-road cabin with minimal technology. It is intended for off-road use. Within the cabin, there’s a basic black-themed dashboard with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. The SUV has four speakers for the music system, front power windows, a four-by-four lift, manual AC controls, and captain seats for every passenger.

Two front airbags, ABS with EBD, and a rear parking sensor are included for safety. On the other hand, compared to the Mahindra Thar and Maruti Jimmy, it offers a lot fewer features.

Force Gurkha Engine Specifications

It has a Mercedes 2.6-liter diesel engine under the hood that produces 250 Nm of torque and 90 horsepower. A five-speed manual transmission is the only gearbox option. Aside from this, it comes equipped with standard features like manual front and rear differential locks and Lorenz transfer.
