The Gurkha has an advanced hi-tech transfer case with ground gears offering life-long service and least NVH levels. With a conveniently located lever one can select any of the three options, 4x2 High, 4x4High or 4x4Low. The differential lock is a unique feature of the Gurkha that helps come out of situations when one or more of the wheels are slipping on soft ground or in the air due to undulating terrain. Engaging the differential lock forces both wheels to turn in unison regardless of the traction available to the wheels enabling the wheel on the surface with more traction to rotate and pull the vehicle out.
The Gurkha has a class leading ground clearance of 210 mm helping it to negotiate undulating terrains with ease. In addition, critical areas like the engine under belly, fuel tank, propeller shaft joints have a protective shield to prevent damage during off-roading.
Unlike others, where the air intake is closer to the ground and prone to dust entry, the air intake of the Gurkha is through a snorkel mounted at the roof height of the vehicle that ensures ample supply of clean air to the engine ensuring better combustion and lower strain on the air cleaning system. The Snorkel also gives Gurkha a high water wading ability of upto 550 mm, unmatched by any other vehicle in this category.
The only vehicle in its class with factory fitted hard top and air conditioning ensuring total safety and living room comfort even while traversing scorching deserts, freezing mountaintops or torrential downpours.
37° Approach Angle to help negotiate sudden steep gradients. A 34° Angle of Departure that is more than any other vehicle in this category makes reversing on gradients and tackling ditches effortless. The class-leading ramp over angle of 29° in the Gurkha is more than any other vehicle in its class and enables negotiating humps with ease.
The Gurkha has best in class gradability and can negotiate gradients up to 40° (84%) in Low 4x4.
Independent front suspension with solid torsion bar in the front and two stage semi elliptical leaf springs in the rear assisted by double acting telescopic hydraulic shock absorbers ensure unmatched ride comfort whether on road or off road. Anti-roll bar provided on both front and rear axle ensure roll over stability. The Gurkha is available in both Soft Top and Hard Top Versions. The Hard top has five forward seats including the driver. The Soft top version has longitudinal seats in the rear and can accommodate six including the driver.

The bold front facia, new front and rear bumpers, muscular side cladding, attractive graphics, clear lens headlamps and fog lamps, roof rails, large ORVMs, sturdy and slip resistant full length foot board, increased width and all terrain tubeless tyres and stylish alloy wheels lend the Gurkha a macho, bold presence appreciated by the true blue off-roaders.
