The 2024 Force Gurkha range gets a 7-inch digital console and a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system

Force Motors also added a new 7-inch digital instrument console to the off-roader along with a new 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, bringing the model up to speed with newer creature comforts. The 4WD shifter has also been switched from a manual lever to a shift-on-fly rotor knob between the front seats. That said, the Gurkha range continues to remain basic and functional.

The big update on the Force Gurkha range is the heavily updated 2.6-litre turbocharged inter-cooled diesel engine. The new motor now produces 138 bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. Torque comes at a wider band between 1,400 rpm and 2,600 rpm, allowing for higher speeds on the highway. Power goes to all four wheels via the 5-speed manual gearbox. The off-roader gets a front and rear locking differential.
