The BS6 Force Gurkha is likely to be launched in the Indian market very soon

The soon-to-be-launched BS6 Force Gurkha has been spotted testing in India ahead of its launch. The test mule seems to be a top-end variant, as it can be seen equipped with a host of changes while retaining the boxy design language. The off-roader was previously seen heading to a dealership, which was shared by an Andhra Pradesh-based dealer. Pune-based Force Motors gave us the first glimpse of the BS6 version earlier this year at the 2020 Auto Expo. Expected to go on sale in the coming months, it will be a direct competition to the recently launched Mahindra Thar.

The spy images show a familiar front-end design of the new Gurkha. It gets a single-slat grille, circular headlamps with integrated LED DRLs, new bumper, alloy wheels, snorkel intake painted in black, turn indicators incorporated on the fenders, a luggage carrier on the roof, a ladder to get to the rack, new black plastic cladding, revised taillights, and more.

The spy pictures do not reveal interior details of the off-roader. However, the new Gurkha unveiled at the expo featured a dual-tone dashboard, touchscreen infotainment system, new leather seats, tilt and telescopic adjustable steering wheel, power windows, ABS, dual front airbags and more.

Coming to mechanicals, the upcoming Force Gurkha will be powered by a Mercedes-Benz sourced 2.6-litre diesel engine which will be a BS6-compliant unit. The powertrain belongs to the OM616 family and tuned to produce 89 bhp and 260 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties will be handled by a 5-speed manual gearbox with a manual 4×4 as standard. The 2020 Force Gurkha is also expected to get an off-road kit which is offered as standard along with a host of accessories.
