New 5-door Force Gurkha set to launch this year, poised to compete with Mahindra Thar

The Force Gurkha 5-door is set to challenge Mahindra Thar 5-door, based on the Gurkha 3-door. Force Motors teases the upcoming model which promises more practicality for off-roading enthusiasts. The launch is expected by mid-2024.

The teaser reveals a longer wheelbase and an additional set of doors on the Force Gurkha 5-door. The iconic boxy silhouette remains intact, with design elements likely carried over from the 3-door model. The new model is poised to offer a more spacious and user-friendly interior.

The Gurkha 5-door will feature roll-down rear windows instead of side-facing ones, providing increased comfort for rear passengers. Spy shots suggest design updates like a revised front grille, bumper, and square headlamps. The cabin is expected to offer a second bench or captain seats with ample boot space.

Powering the Gurkha 5-door will be the same 2.6-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel engine delivering 91 bhp and 250 Nm of torque. Expect a 5-speed manual transmission with rear-wheel drive and 4×4 configurations. The model was previously showcased as the Ksatria SUV in Indonesia.

Force Motors aims to target family buyers seeking practicality in the off-road capable vehicle segment. The launch is anticipated to happen around mid-2024, with pricing expected to be slightly higher than the 3-door model. Stay tuned for further updates on this exciting off-roader.
