Force Gurkha SUV will get a new 139 BHP engine

Force Motors is currently reworking on what’s under the Hood of the Gurkha SUV.
Currently, the brand sells the Gurkha powered by a 2.6L, 81 BHP diesel motor. This engine is however BSIII complaint and now needs to comply wit BSIV emission norms to be sold pan-India. The brand has already started working on the BSIV version of this 2.6L, 4-cylinder diesel engine and the power & torque figures are expected to change as well.
Apart from this, the Gurkha is also likely to get the 2.2L motor from the Force One which is essentially a Mercedes-Bez OM611 common rail diesel engine. This motor will produce 139 BHP of power, which is significantly higher than what the Gurkha was previously equipped with.
Both the engines will get updated gearboxes, as per requirements.
Expect the 2.2L motor to be priced at a noticeable premium.
Force Motors sells the Gurkha in 3 variants – 2WD soft-top, 4WD soft-top & 4WD hard-top.
