All-new Force Gurkha spied ahead of launch: NEW images

Recommended Posts

Think of offroading vehicles in India and most will think of the Thar or the Gypsy. But the underdog here is the Force Gurkha. Dont judge it by its looks. Its a pure bred offroad machine which goes anywhere, making its own path. Few people know about its capabilities as a serious offroad vehicle. It is one of the best out there.

What works in its favour: The brilliant low range and 4x4 capability. With just about any kind of path, the Gurkha can juts glide over effortlessly. When you put it in 4L, thats when the magic happens. Mud, slush, snow, dirt- it rules any and every terrain easily. It is butch and big and is a beast when it comes to where the road ends.

What doesn't work: Everything else. Looks are bad. So are any creature comforts. Agreed its for offroading mainly but since its a road legal car, buyers would expect some amount of features that make it fun to drive. On road, its no fun to drive at all. The 80bhp that the engine puts out struggles to get it going. Handling is not that great either. Interiors are minimal and nothing to boast of. The snorkel is a nice touch though, and it is also functional.

It is a lifestyle product, catering to the niche of the niche. So anyone who buys this has to be a serious offroading enthusiast else they wouldn't enjoy the beauty and purpose of this car.
