2020 Force Gurkha is finally unveiled at the ongoing auto expo in Noida and car has thoroughly updated this time with a refreshed exterior and a new dashboard.
Force has finally displayed the new Gurkha at the 2020 auto expo to the public. However, the car is not officially launched yet, but what the 2020 Gurkha would look like is not a question anymore. The new Gurkha has kept its charm intact with its boxy looks inspired by the legendary G-Wagen. The SUV now has a sense of added freshness to it, thanks to new and revised styling of the car.
Force has unveiled the new 2020 Gurkha and it might go on sale anytime soon before BS-6 emission compliant kicks in.
With the update, Gurkha gets itself an updated chassis, BS-6 compliant engine, and it is now compliant to the pedestrian safety crash test norms as well. Helping the car fall in accordance with the pedestrian safety tests is the new bumper, which is now redesigned and houses a set of new headlamps, with circular LED DRls. However, the overall look of the car remains the same with similar body-shell.
It is on the inside that car boasts of some major changes. The utilitarian cabin has now left the space for a much better design. Although, it is still an upright design, but it now gets a touchscreen infotainment system with multiple connectivity options, which was absent for all these years on this car. The instrument console has also been updated with a large MID screen sitting in between the tacho and speedo dials.
The updated Force Gurkha gets a power bump of 5PS over the outgoing car.
Mechanically the car is still identical to what it was, but it has now gained 5hp more over the outgoing 85hp of peak output from the 2.2L turbo-diesel engine. With the update, the car also gets the added safety net of ABS with EBD, Dual-front airbags, and rear parking sensors. The second-row seats on the Gurkha are now front-facing and the car can seat just 4 passengers in total.
Force also showcased a customised version of the new Gurkha for those who think regular Gurkha is not intimidating at all.
The model showcased at the expo is a two-door version, but there was another raised Gurkha that manufacturer showcased. Talking about this kitted up Gurkha it was sitting on massive 40-inch rubber slapped on the rims bolted on portal axles at both the ends. The suspension duties on this humongously mammoth expedition vehicle are performed by a twin shocker setup at each hub. It also get a rugged roof-mounted rack, to hold the luggage and the spare wheel.
The customized Gurkha is, however, is only showcased in a order to let the enthusiasts understand that to what extent can a Gurkha be modified to. While, the production-spec Gurkha is expected to go on sale by the April 2020.
