Key Features of the 5-Door Gurkha 

According to dealer insights and preview teasers, the 5-door Gurkha retains the classic features of its predecessor but with notable enhancements:

  • Round LED Projector Headlamps and DRLs: Continuing with its traditional design, the new model includes modern lighting elements.
  • LED Taillamps: These add a contemporary touch to the vehicle’s rugged exterior.
  • Roof Rack and Snorkel: Emphasizing its off-road capabilities, these features suggest readiness for adventurous terrains.
  • Infotainment and Instrumentation: Updates include a new infotainment system and a semi-digital display with a large TFT screen, upgrades that are expected to roll out to the 2024 Gurkha 3-door as well.

Engine and Performance

The Force Gurkha 5-door is anticipated to sport the same 2.6-litre diesel engine found in the current Gurkha but might see an enhancement in performance output. The vehicle will likely be available with a manual transmission only, reinforcing its traditional off-road character.

Market Position and Price Expectations

With its extended size and features, the Force Gurkha 5-door is poised to command a higher price point than the existing 3-door model, which starts at Rs 15.09 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Its direct competition will include the upcoming Mahindra Thar 5-door, providing an alternative for those seeking a rugged yet more spacious off-road vehicle. It will also serve as a larger option compared to the Maruti Jimny, catering to a segment of buyers looking for robust performance and enhanced utility.
