Force Gurkha Xpedition 5 Door Description
The mighty and muscular Gurkha is back in a new avatar. Not only is it being loved in India, it has garnered global appreciation as well. The new Force Gurkha instantly strikes one for its design and off-road attributes. Previous Gurkha owners will be pleasantly surprised by how much better the new Gurkha looks. The vehicle has been designed for those who love to go on off-roading trips. It caters to every conceivable need by offering off-road prowess. We expected it to receive BSIV compliant, but it hasn’t.
Force Gurkha Xpedition 5 Door ExteriorThe new Gurkha Xpedition has an aggressive face that suits its robust nature. Force has done a fine job of endowing it with a beefier look than its predecessor. The round headlamps, new front grill and nice-looking snorkel placed at the roof height lend it an attractive look, and the snorkel also prevents water from entering the engine while navigating through deep water.
The side profile reveals high ground clearance and there is an extensive use of cladding, adorning the lower profile of the vehicle, giving it a rugged look. At the back too, the Gurkha Expedition looks quite attractive with its nicely-placed tail lights on the bumper and tailgate-mounted spare wheel. It comes with Apollo Alnac Hawkz tyres, which offer superior levels of grip on various types of road surfaces. The new Gurkha can be opted in three colours: Copper Red, Dragon Green and Matt Black.
Force Gurkha Xpedition 5 Door InteriorThe new Gurkha surprises with refreshing alterations made to its interior, which make it far better than its predecessor. The dashboard has a very simplistic design, which does look boring, since we are used to seeing stylish designs now. Plastic quality in the cabin isn’t impressive and this is something that we cannot expect from a vehicle at this price. Seats are quite comfortable, offering generous headroom and good under thigh support. The hardtop version comes with the option of a manual AC unit, which offers decent cooling. The driver has a commanding driving position with a good all-round visibility of the road. The instrument cluster is clean and easy to read.
Force Gurkha Xpedition 5 Door Engine & TransmissionForce Gurkha Xpedition is powered by a 2.6-liter, 4-cylinder, Inline, TCIC Common Rail, diesel Engine with an intercooler sourced from Mercedes, which discharges a peak power of 85 hbp at 3200 rpm and peak torque of 230 Nm at 1400 - 2400 rpm. Mated to this engine is a G1-18 5-speed manual transmission with high and low gear ratios.
Force Gurkha Xpedition 5 Door MileageGurkha Xpedition returns a mileage of around 11-12 km/l, which is pretty good for a vehicle of this potential.
Force Gurkha Xpedition 5 Door Braking and SafetyDiscs at the front with drums at the rear ensure confidence inspiring braking. Stopping power from the brakes is ample, and doesn’t feel that it needed or could do with more. Even on steep and winding downhill sections of road, the Gurkha gives confidence in its braking capability.
Force Gurkha Xpedition 5 Door Performance and HandlingForce Gurkha is simply unmatched and terrifically brilliant in its off-road capabilities. It is based on the Mercedes G-Wagon and comes with differential for both the axles, 210 mm of ground clearance and a high mounted snorkel that makes it a very capable off-roader. Its ladder frame design adds on to the off-road capability. There is good low-end poke so that driving off road doesn’t necessitate revving the oil burner hard. The clutch is on the heavier side but the gearbox offers slick shifts.
The Gurkha has far from impressive on-road dynamics but that’s little to complain since this car isn’t your corner craving machine. The brake-lock differentials help prevent wheel spin when off-roading. Some sorts of vibrations creep into the cabin but the overall NVH levels are pretty good.
On the suspension front, the Gurkha Xpedition gets Independent with Solid Torsion Bar, Hydraulic Telescopic Shock Absorber and Anti roll bar at the front while the rear sports Semi Elliptical Leaf Spring with Hydraulic Telescopic Shock Absorber and Anti roll bar. The stiff suspension sure gives the Gurkha an impressive handling dynamics; this attribute makes it a bit harsh on rough road conditions.
Force Gurkha Xpedition 5 Door VerdictThe thing that makes Gurkha Xpedition stand out is its amazing off-road ability. It is one of the best offering to the true off-roaders under the price tag of Rs. 10 lakh.
