Derived from the same platform used by the brand’s successful Rain Forest Challenge competition machines, Force Motors’ all-new Gurkha 2.2/4×4 is a modern, go-anywhere off-roader styled after Mercedes-Benz’ iconic G-Wagen.

Born out of R&D from Force’s RFC efforts, the new two-door hardtop Gurkha was engineered to take on harsh, rugged terrain, with the vehicle boasting an impressive 8.25” ground clearance, a snorkel gives the 4×4 the ability to perform water crossings as deep as 21.6”, a 44-degree approach and 40-degree angle of departure, and a class-leading 30-degree ramp over angle and the ability to take on gradients up to 4-degrees. Based on the Mercedes OM 611 mill, the 2.2/4×4 is powered by a 2,149cc, 16V, DOHC, inline-four Diesel engine that puts down 140hp and 237ft-lbs of torque. The only model in its class with mechanically actuated differential locks front and rear, the Gurkha also gets a new front-rigid axle, a revised transfer case, and a five-speed transmission with a Synchromesh gearbox with dual-mass flywheel and overdrive. Other amenities found on the model include LED lighting throughout, a full roof rack, rear jerrycan rack, windshield brush guard, headlight and taillight grilles, full-size spare, and side steps. The 2020 Force Gurkha 2.2/4×4 starts at $17,650 (or $18,050 w/ ABS).
