2022 Force Gurkha 5 Door

Five-door Gurkha will receive wheelbase of around 2.8 mtr, making it 400mm longer than its 3-door counterpart

After a long delay, Force Motors finally launched the new Gurkha SUV. It is now on sale in 3 door format, and rivals new gen Mahindra Thar 3 door. Both Thar and Gurkha are getting ready to launch 5 door versions. Gurkha 5 door will be launched later this year while Thar 5 door is expected to be launched sometime in 2024.

The new Force Gurkha 5 door is being actively tested ahead of launch. Latest spy shots credit to automotive enthusiast Abhijeet Mane, show the Gurkha 5 door versions side view. On closer look, it is seen wearing a top hat similar to that of Trax. That is likely to change at launch, as it will wear a design similar to new Gurkha 3 door.

New Force Gurkha SUV 5 Door

For starters, 2022 Gurkha 5 door SUV will be underpinned by an elongated version of the same ladder frame chassis which is seen on its 3 door model. It is slated to have a wheelbase of around 2.8m making it around 400mm longer than the Gurkha 3 door.

Bigger Gurkha SUV will borrow much of its design from the latter which will include circular shaped LED headlamps, fog lamps and LED DRLs along with a snorkel and spare wheel mounted on its tailgate. Design at the rear will differ due to the addition of 2 extra doors.

Engine, Transmission, Suspension

New Force Gurkha 5 door is expected to carry forward the same Mercedes sourced 2.6 liter turbocharged diesel engine which offers 91 hp power and 250 Nm torque on 3 door version. Power and torque figures could be higher, so as to offer better performance on 5 door model. Engine is mated to a 5 speed manual gearbox.

Force Motors is also expected to offer 4WD along with manual locking differentials. As is seen on the 3 door version, Gurkha 5 door will also get off road gear like low range transfer case, manual locking front and rear differentials. Suspension will include independent suspension and multi-link rigid live axle suspension at front and rear respectively.

No pricing details have been revealed as on date. However, with the current Gurkha 3 door priced at Rs 14.10 lakh, its 5 door version could be priced higher by Rs 1-2 lakh. It will rival the upcoming 5 door SUVs like Mahindra Thar and Maruti Jimny. Launch expected by Diwali 2022.
