In a bid to meet the BS-IV emission norms, Force Motors recently launched the refreshed Gurkha with an updated engine compliant with the required standards. This off-roader is now available as a three-door Xplorer or a five-door Xpedition version. Our earlier photo gallery explained the details of the Xplorer. Now let's get into the details of the Xpedition through these new images.
Unlike the Xplorer that is available in both three- and five-door body styles, the Xpedition is offered only as a five-door vehicle.
This five-door model is also offered as a hard top only in ether a six- or an eight-seat configuration, excluding the driver.
It measures 4,342mm in length, 1,790mm in width and 2,055mm in height. It has a wheelbase of 2,750mm and a ground clearance of 190mm.
Although the overall design remains the same, a few tweaks have been made to the styling bits. The grille is reworked and the car gets tweaked steel bumpers.
There’s a host of mechanical changes which include a new ladder-frame chassis, along with a new suspension setup.
The 85bhp, 2.6-litre diesel mill continues to power the Gurkha, but this unit is now BS-IV compatible. It comes paired to a new five-speed manual gearbox sending power only to the rear wheels.
With a cabin to accommodate more than seven occupants, the Gurkha Xpedition can seat a full family and go beyond the usual boundaries that other regular cars can travel.
