Highlights

    Force Gurkha has been one of the select few hardcore off-road SUVs that you can buy in India right now. Last year we saw the arrival of the new Bharat Stage 6 or BS6 compliant version of the SUV, which was first showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. In addition to visual changes, the new Gurkha came with a new cabin, better creature comforts and improved off-road capabilities. Force also offers a wide range of customisation options for the new Gurkha. So, if you are planning to get one, here are 5 key highlights you need to know.
