New Force Gurkha Xtreme 4×4: Detailed image gallery

Force launched the updated Gurkha Xtreme with a new 2.2-litre engine last year. Priced at Rs 12.99 lakh, we were more than curious to drive this 4×4 in an apt environment to see if the new engine along with the old school mechanicals makes this the best hardcore off-roader in India or not. Before we get you our review tomorrow, here’s a detailed look via our image gallery.

The cabin is bare basic but people who buy the Gurkha will know why. Some basic features will be added soon we are told. Space up front is impressive while the rear benches can seat 5-6 in comfort.
