A new set of images of the 2021 Force Gurkha have surfaced online revealing its exterior design ahead of the official launch.
As seen in these images, the new Gurkha dons an orange body colour, which we saw at the Expo last year. It gets a single-slat grille with circular headlamps, integrated LED daytime running lamps (DRLs), new bumpers, fog lights, clamshell bonnet with indicators, black-coloured snorkel intake, luggage carrier, new black plastic cladding, rear-door mounted spare wheel and more. Previous spy pictures suggest that the SUV will also get vertically stacked taillights, a new rear bumper with reflectors, a high-mounted LED stop lamp, a ladder to get to the rack among others.
On the inside, the new Gurkha will sport an all-black cabin while the dashboard will now get a touchscreen infotainment system. It will also feature bigger air-con vents with glossy black bezels, a manual HVAC system, a three-spoke steering wheel, power windows, ABS, dual front airbags, forward-facing rear seats and more.
As for mechanicals, the 2021 Force Gurkha will be powered by a Mercedes-Benz sourced 2.6-litre diesel engine, which belongs to the OM616 family. The BS6-compliant unit will produce 89 bhp and 260 Nm of peak torque and will be paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox with a manual 4×4 as standard. Moreover, it is likely to get an off-road kit which could be offered as standard with a host of accessories.
