Force Gurkha has been one of the few hardcore off-road SUVs you can buy in India right now.

Along with the visual changes, the new Gurkha came with a new cabin, better creature comforts, and improved off-road capabilities. Force also offers a wide range of customization options for the new Gurkha. So, if you’re considering getting one, here are 5 key things you need to know.
