Although missing out on the third-row seats and additional doors, the 2024 Gurkha 3-door receives all the latest features and uprated diesel engine which have been introduced in the 5-door version.

Enhanced Features:

The upgraded 3-door Gurkha now boasts a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, along with a 7-inch digital driver’s instrument cluster replacing the smaller 7-inch unit and analogue dials, respectively, 

Comfort features include a manual AC (same as the outgoing model), tilt and telescopic steering adjustment, and powered windows. Safety features are limited to just dual front airbags, ABS, rear parking sensors, and an inbuilt tyre pressure monitoring system which came as an aftermarket accessory earlier.

Under its hood, the Force Gurkha 3-door retains its 2.6-litre diesel engine but with the output tuned up to deliver 140 PS and 320 Nm (up by 49 PS and 70 Nm from the earlier version). This unit is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission.

Unchanged Capability:

The core capabilities of the Gurkha remain intact, including standard 4WD with manually locking front and rear differentials and a high ground clearance of 233 mm. Additionally, it now features an electronic shift-on-the-fly toggle dial instead of a manual stick in the earlier model.Water wading depth is as high as 700 mm, all thanks to its factory-fitted air intake snorkel.

Familiar Design:

On the exterior, the Gurkha 3-door retains its recognisable boxy upright silhouette with design elements such as circular LED headlamps, thick body cladding across the vehicle, squared-off wheel arches, and a spare wheel mounted on the tailgate. However, it now rides on redesigned 18-inch alloy wheels.

Launch and Pricing:

The 2024 Force Gurkha 3-door can be reserved for Rs 25,000 at dealerships across the country, with official pricing to be unveiled in early May. Deliveries are expected to commence in the latter half of the same month. 

It is anticipated to command a premium over the outgoing model's price which started from Rs 15.10 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), it will continue to pose as a robust competitor to off-road capable SUVs like the Mahindra Thar and Maruti Suzuki Jimny.
