The Force Gurkha five-door is the more practical, family-oriented lifestyle off-roader. This SUV has been launched to lure in more family-focused off-roading adventure enthusiasts. The three-door model, although very capable, does not have much of a presence in the country.

Its main competitor, Mahindra Thar, has been consistently outselling it. Now, with the launch of the Thar five-door, Force Motors is taking a jump ahead of Mahindra.

Currently, Mahindra is still preparing to launch the Thar five-door in India. Most likely, it will be launched by August 15 of this year. Till then, the Gurkha five-door will mainly compete with the Thar three-door and Maruti Suzuki Jimny.
