Coming in with a 2.2 liter, Common Rail Diesel Daimler engine, a suspension kit from Lotus, the most anticipated SUV, Force One, is here and that too at 10.65 lakhs ex-showroom. Competition better watch out.
One thinks of Force Motors and the first thing to come to mind is the Tempo Traveler or the sucessfully running Gurkha. Come to think of it, that is what has been expected by the pioneer in Light Commercial Vehicles with the Judo, Trax and a fleet that has undoubtedly no competition. Now, the manufacturer is entering into the premium SUV segment with Force One, their first entrant in the passenger vehicle segment. The Diesel mill will also be a frugal one with claimed figures of 11.6 kilometers to a liter. Not only that, the reliability factor is also expected to be at par with other competitors.
Equipped with a 2.2 liter FMTech Daimler engine putting out 141 PS at 3800 rpm, and a massive 321 Nm at 1600 rpm, this beast stands at a kerb weight of 2510 kilos. The power is delivered to the tarmac through 235/70/16R Apollo Hawkz and the overall dimensions comparable to any SUV in the market.
Creature comforts like steering mounted audio, cruise and Bluetooth connectivity controls will come standard with electrically foldable mirrors as well.
For the time being, Force One will be available in a 4x2 version for 10.65 lakhs ex-showroom all India. The Brand Ambassador, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan has already placed orders for two units. (Read: Force Motors Force One - first drive)
