Force motors India has launched its new Gurkha SUV in the Indian market. This model is available in both 2WD and 4WD versions.

The Gurkha SUV is powered by a Mercedes-Benz’s 2.6L OM616 diesel engine which is currently in use in various other Force products. This engine delivers 81bhp @3200rpm and 230Nm torque @1800rpm. This engine is only a BSIII version and a BSIV version will be launched later this year. The engine is mated with a five speed manual gear box.
