The new Force Gurkha 5 door maintains the distinctive boxy design language reminiscent of its 3-door counterpart. Notable design elements include circular LED DRLs and LED headlamps, a two-slat grille featuring Gurkha badging, and the inclusion of a standard snorkel facilitating a water-wading capacity of 700mm. With a ground clearance of 233mm, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a gradability of 35 degrees, the Gurkha SUVs are well-equipped to tackle challenging terrain.

In the extended 5-door variant of the Gurkha, the wheelbase sees a notable increase of 425mm compared to its 3-door counterpart. However, this enhancement comes at a slight trade-off in maneuverability, with the 5-door variant featuring a turning radius of 6.3m, slightly larger than the 5.5m radius of the 3-door version.

Interiors And Features

In the Gurkha's interior, the utilitarian layout remains intact but receives a technological upgrade. The focal point is a new 9-inch infotainment touchscreen equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionalities. Additionally, a 7-inch digital driver's display provides essential information at a glance, including readings from the tyre pressure monitoring system.

In the Force Gurkha 5-door variant, the engine remains unchanged but undergoes substantial enhancements in power delivery. The engine in question is a Mercedes-sourced 2.6-liter, four-cylinder diesel unit, now delivering a significant increase in power output, approximately a 50% boost compared to its predecessor. This results in a robust 140 hp, a notable improvement from the previous model's 91hp. Additionally, torque experiences a commendable surge, reaching 320 Nm.

The Force Gurkha directly challenges other off-road-centric SUVs like Mahindra Thar, Maruti Jimny, and others. And before we end this section, we have covered the pros and cons of the Gurkha from its owner and you must check out what a long-term owner has to say.


The 5-Doored version of the Gurkha represents a highly anticipated upgrade, addressing many of the limitations found in its 3-door counterpart. With increased power, larger alloys, and a well-rounded feature set, albeit modestly enhanced, it fulfills many expectations. Sporting a rugged aesthetic that exudes capability, coupled with improved performance metrics, the Gurkha solidifies its position as the ideal off-road companion for adventurers who frequently venture off the paved roads.
