Force Motors have released yet another teaser for the upcoming Gurkha 5 Door. The Force Gurkha 5 Door will rival the Maruti Suzuki Jimny 5 Door and the upcoming Mahindra Thar Armada.

Force Gurkha 5 Door Teaser Highlights

The latest teaser video for the Gurkha 5 Door shows glimpses of the SUV’s exterior design and features. Up front, the Gurkha 5 Door will get the same front end as the current Gurkha 3 Door. Hence, it comes with circular LED headlamps and LED DRLs, turn indicators mounted atop the front fenders, black front bumper with fog lamps, and ‘GURKHA’ lettering on the front grille.

The teaser video also shows off the Gurkha 5 Door’s snorkel and a roof rack equipped with a jerry can. The Gurkha 5 Door’s new 17-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels are also visible in the latest teaser. Around the back, the Gurkha 5 Door gets a ladder, clear lens tail lamps and a spare wheel mounted on the tailgate.

Force Motors are yet to reveal the interior of the Gurkha 5 Door. However, we expect it to offer a similar cabin and features as the Gurkha 3 Door. Hence, expect the Gurkha 5 Door to come with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, dedicated charging points for all passengers, a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), among other features.

The Gurkha 5 Door is significantly longer than the Gurkha 3 Door and features an extended wheelbase as well. We expect Force Motors to offer the Gurkha 5 Door with multiple seating layouts. Force could offer it with a 2-row 5-seater option, a 3-row 6-seater option, and a 3-row 7-seater option with bench seats in the 2nd row and captains seats for the third row.

Force Gurkha 3 Door To Get Updates Too

Force Motors’ latest social media post suggests updates for the Gurkha 3 Door too. While information is scarce at the moment, the Gurkha 3 Door is likely to get extensive updates inside the cabin to make it a fairly well-equipped rival to the Mahindra Thar and Maruti Suzuki Jimny.

Meanwhile, the Force Gurkha 3 Door could lose its separate front and rear diff-lock levers and manually-operated transfer case for a shift-on-the-fly 4WD knob that was spied on the Gurkha 5 Door. 

In terms of powertrain, Force Motors are likely to retain the 2.6-litre diesel engine with 5-speed manual transmission for both versions of the Gurkha. In the current Gurkha, the diesel engine produces 91PS of power and 250Nm of torque.

2024 Force Gurkha Expected Prices

Currently, the Gurkha 3 Door is priced at Rs. 15.10 lakh (ex-showroom). If the changes on the Gurkha 3 Door are substantial, we could expect its prices to go up by around Rs. 40,000 - Rs. 50,000. As for the Gurkha 5 Door, we expect it to cost Rs. 1.0 lakh to Rs. 1.20 lakh over the Gurkha 5 Door.
