Motors has introduced the new Gurkha Xtreme with the drivetrain that powered
the Force Gurkha vehicles which won podium positions at Rain Forest Challenge
2014, 2015 and 2016. The new Gurkha Xtreme is powered by the Mercedes OM 611
derived common rail engine developing 140 hp and 321 Nm torque with dual mass
flywheel that ensures excellent drivability and low NVH.
new Gurkha Xtreme also comes with a new transfer case and a new live rigid axle
in the front. It also has provision to fit hub locks on the front axles that
helps saving fuel as well as reducing stress on the drivetrain while in 2WD.
new Gurkha Xtreme has high strength C-in-C chassis and is the only vehicle in
this class which has live rigid front axles with coil spring suspension
ensuring best in class on-road handling and ride comfort along with extreme
off-roading ability. It is also the only vehicle that comes with differential
locks on both front and rear axles to come out of sticky situations, and air
intake snorkel for deep water wading.
on the lines of legendary Mercedes-Benz Gelandewagen, the new Force Gurkha has
timeless appeal. The exterior of the vehicle has undergone a facelift with a
bold new front facia, unique bonnet mounted LED indicators, new front, and rear
steel bumpers which add significantly to the style quotient of the vehicle. The
signature chrome finish air intake snorkel, muscular side cladding, new
attractive bold graphics, clear lens headlamps, front fog lamps, large ORVMs,
sturdy and full-length slip resistant footboard, and increased width
all-terrain tubeless tyres are standard.
on this occasion, Ashutosh Khosla, President Sales and Marketing, Force Motors noted,
“The Gurkha Xtreme is being introduced in a phased manner with the first lot of
vehicles being delivered to select customers who have been waiting since long
for this variant. With the introduction of the Gurkha Xtreme, our portfolio of
off-roading vehicles is complete with variants to take care of every segment,
be it mild, moderate or extreme off-roading. The best part of the Gurkha Xtreme
is that it is adaptable for competitive off-roading.”
