Standard equipment includes mechanical differential locks for the front and rear axles, a snorkel that allows it to go swimming in water 550mm deep, a transfer case with low-ratios and all-terrain tyres mounted on alloy wheels borrowed from the Force OneT. Mercedes-Benz OM616-derived 2596cc turbo-charged, inter-cooled direct injection (not common-rail) diesel that makes a modest 81bhp and 23.5kgm of torque, powering the Gurkha. Five-speed G18 gearbox from Mercedes-Benz, it powers the rear wheels under normal conditions. The two-tone dashboard is simple and straightforward. the dials, which consist of a speedo, temperature- and fuel gauge with a tiny rev-counter placed under the air-con vents. The AC vents are hugely adjustable but the AC itself has no thermostat control. Plastic quality and fit-and-finish are better than the Mahindra Thar's. The steering wheel slopes away, there's no seat height or steering rake adjust, and slotting the long-throw five-speed ’box into the dog-leg first is quite a stretch. The engine catches almost immediately and settles into a gravelly idle, the clutch is heavy but progressive in the way it engages.
