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 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 up-to 550mm, unmatched by any other vehicle in this category.
The Gurkha has an advanced hi-tech transfer case with ground gears offering life-long service and least NVH levels. With conveniently located lever one can select any of the three options – 4X2High, 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 and unable to generate the required traction to move forward.
