New 2017 Force Gurkha Facelift – Design Review

The new 2017 Force Gurkha facelift carries a set of minor interior and exterior visual updates. The 2017 model carries a few new styling cues that seem to come from the iconic Mercedes G wagon. The 2017 Gurkha is available with both soft-top and hard-top options. The new Gurkha looks every bit a hardcore off-roader. Bits like steel bumpers, snorkel, large wheels and faux plates make the Gurkha look really mean and rugged.

On the inside, the new 2017 Force Gurkha facelift looks much like the pre-facelift model. However, there’s some freshness that arises out of a new four-spoke steering wheel, a new gearknob and addition of some storage spaces. The Gurkha is now available with a HVAC unit. Overall, the cabin can be best described is utilitarian. However, the Gurkha gets away with lack of comfort features as it’s a budget-end off-roader.
