The new Force Gurkha has finally launched in India – the new Gurkha 5-door is priced at Rs 18 lakh, while the updated Gurkha 3-door costs Rs 16.75 lakh.

New Force Gurkha price, rivals

The Gurkha’s only rival in the Indian market is the Mahindra Thar, which, for now, is only available in three-door form. However, Mahindra’s lifestyle SUV gets a petrol engine option, 2WD options, and automatic gearbox options, whereas the Gurkha is only available in diesel-manual form, with 4WD as standard.

Considering its Rs 16.75 lakh price point, the Gurkha 3-door costs Rs 1.75 lakh more than the Thar AX Optional 4WD, which is the entry point to the Mahindra SUV’s diesel 4WD lineup. Meanwhile, the Gurkha 5-door is currently without a direct rival, at least until the Thar 5-door, likely to be called the Thar Armada) arrives.   

As we’ve reported before, both versions of the Gurkha get the same 2.6-litre Mercedes-sourced diesel engine, which has been upgraded to churn out 140hp and 320Nm, which is a big increase from the 91hp the unit used to put out. This also means that the Gurkha is now more powerful than the Thar – the Mahindra is powered by a 132hp, 2.2-litre diesel mill.

With features such as a 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a digital instrument cluster, powered ORVMs, tilt and telescopic sterring adjust, and a rear camera, along with a tyre pressure monitoring system, the Gurkha is better equipped than the previously mentioned entry-level Thar, which should help justify the Rs 1.75 lakh asking price.
