The ABS updated Force Gurkha is available in the Xplorer and Xtreme variants at an additional price of Rs. 30,000/-.
Force Motors has introduced the ABS-equipped variants of the Gurkha off-road vehicle. The Force Gurkha ABS price is Rs. 11.05 lakhs for the Xplorer 3-door variant and goes up to Rs. 12.55 lakhs for the Xplorer 5-door and Rs. 13.30 lakhs for the Xtreme 3-door variant (all prices, ex-showroom). This also makes the Gurkha Rs. 30,000/- more expensive than the non-ABS variants. However, the base models of the Gurkha i.e. Xpedition 3- and 5-door variants do not get updated with ABS.
Force Motors launched the Gurkha Xtreme in 2018. The top of the line Gurkha is powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine making 140 HP and 321 Nm of torque. The other Xplorer and Xpedition models are powered by a 2.6-litre diesel engine making 85 HP and 230 Nm of torque. The engines are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. In the looks department, the Gurkha Xtreme gets a slightly different exterior styling, LED indicators, newly designed steel bumpers on both ends, a thicker footboard, different mirrors and a different set of decals as well.
With the implementation of the current safety norms, car manufacturers have been busy updating their products to meet the safety requirements. The current norms mandate the inclusion of ABS, driver side airbag, seat-belt reminder, rear parking sensors and high-speed alert for vehicles plying on the roads. The Force Gurkhas could get another round of updates before the BNVSAP tests begin. Expect the Gurkha variants to meet the pedestrian protection safety norms as well.
