The bookings for the new off-roader have officially begun, and according to Force, its deliveries will commence from October 15.

Although there are some key changes over the older model, such as the new grille, bumpers, light clusters, larger rear windows that Force calls ‘panoramic windows’ and a larger rear windshield. There are even a few design changes like the front grille now has ‘Gurkha’ spelt out rather than the Force Logo and it gets a new 4x4x4 badge on the rear fender that the former didn’t.
Inside, the dual-tone cabin has been replaced by a single tone dark grey. However, the new dashboard design is still present. There are new features that have been included such as a new touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth support. This is in addition to kits like tilt and telescopic adjust steering, individual armrests for the rear seats, USB charging sockets for all four occupants, power windows, central locking, air-conditioning, LED headlamps with DRLs, fog lamps and cornering lamps.
