According to the reports, the base variant of the Force Gurkha Xpedition still lacks the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), though, the brand may offer it later in the future. The new ABS equipped Force Gurkha will be delivered to the owners in June 2019, though the booking for the same has started already. In order to obligate to the new safety rule announced by the govt, the brand is also working on a much safer version of the Gurkha SUV that will feature driver side airbag, seatbelt indicators, rear parking sensors as well as a speed alert indicator.

The 2.5L diesel engine offered on the Xpedition and the Xplorer off-roader is good enough for churning 85HP of maximum power while the top-spec variant, Gurkha Xtreme gets a Mercedes-Benz derived 2.2L diesel engine that offers 140HP of maximum power and a peak torque of 321Nm. The engine variants are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The top spec variant for the SUV does look appealing as compared to the others when it comes to getting LED turn indicators, attractive body decals, new muscular steel bumpers and a thick footboard. The Force Gurkha Xtreme competes in the market with the likes of Mahindra Thar.

Force Gurkha Xtreme is officially available in India for INR 12.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The most powerful variant of the dedicated off-roader is available with a more powerful 2.2L engine from the Force One SUV, producing class leading 140 HP of power and 321 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox and these components are derived from the OM611 Mercedes Benz family platform. The difference in power is huge for the 85 HP Gurkha as the smaller 2.2L engine not just gives 55 HP of more power but adds a lot more torque in the usable range.

The front and rear mechanical differential locks are sourced from the older Gurkha while the low range transfer case is still present in place of the much expected shift-on-the-fly feature. The front suspension on Gurkha Xtreme is another upgraded feature, using the celebrated multi-link suspension like the rear setup. This helps the new variant claim approach angle of 44-degrees. The departure angle is also improved (35-degrees) for the more powerful Gurkha. The ramp breakover angle for Xtreme is 29-degrees. Buyers will get 205mm of ground clearance and impressive 550mm wading depth. The cabin comes with mild updates for the Gurkha Xtreme through the new centre console.

Mahindra Thar felt more powerful in comparison to the older Gurkha variant while this new Xtreme variant brings a new performance benchmark for off-road specific SUVs. The difference of INR 2.50 lakh is totally worth spending for those who often travel the routes that are not practical for even urban SUVs. However, the price gap of almost INR 4 lakh between the Mahindra Thar and Gurkha Xtreme is still not promising. The 2.6L engine on the older Gurkha was praised for its off-road presence but always missed the grunt that was required for tarmac riding.

2018 Force Gurkha is almost ready to make a statement in Indian off-road segment. A recent brochure leak has confirmed that they will name the newcomer as Gurkha Xtreme and bring more power to this already capable product. The image seen here has already surfaced before while values were leaked for the first time.

Force Motors will use the same 2.2L, 4-cylinder engine but this time, the power values have been beefed up for confident off-road travel. This 2149cc, TCIC CRDe, 16-valve DOHC engine is good for 140HP at 3800 rpm and 321 Nm at 1600-2400 rpm.

Both ends are available with a differential lock while buyers get 5-speed gearbox with single lever 4×4 high/low option. Force Gurkha Xtreme will come with 245/70-R16 tyres for high levels of safety and comfort during the toughest rides of all time. The car will measure 3992 mm in length, 1790 mm in width and 2055 mm in height.

Gurkha Xtreme carries 205 mm of impressive ground clearance and weighs 2510 kg with standard equipment. Interestingly, they have listed the same to be available in six and eight seat option. The front brakes are disc type while the rear gets standard drum braking system as all other same segment cars.

Gurkha has unofficially been awarded the title of the best off-road machine that one could buy in this segment. Thar is the only rival when considered precisely and soon, this high power variant will prove fatal to Mahindra’s favorite off-roader.

Force Gurkha was criticized for its interior finish and quality, which they may improve in this typical version. If Mahindra Thar style dual tone interior is offered, no complaining point will remain in Gurkha from all aspects. They are expected to price Gurkha Xtreme under INR 12 lakh, not including registration and insurance charges.
