In this video, Vlogger explains why he bought a Force Gurkha when he already has a Mahindra Thar. He made it clear in the video that he is not buying Force Gurkha because Mahindra Thar has some limitations. Thar has proven himself as a skilled off-roader in trips he has made in the past. He mentioned that he was so happy with the Mahindra Thar that he did not want to ruin the car on such a constant road trip.
He uses Mahindra Thar as his daily driver when he is not traveling and he is very happy about it. In fact, it is one of the reasons behind this new purchase. He mentioned that Mahindra Thare has improved a lot and is now a suitable vehicle for use in the city. He has made several changes to his Mahindra Thare that have attracted police on the streets from time to time. The Force Gurkha, on the other hand, comes with a ladder, roof carrier, windshield protector, rear toe hook and more that are approved by the authorities.
This means that the vulgar will have to make minimal changes to transform the Gurkha into a ready vehicle for the expedition. He further mentioned that the force in Gurkha like Mahindra has also improved a lot. Vlogger noted that whenever he used it as a city car, he would remove the changes from his Thar and was busy bringing it down and reinstalling some of the items in it. With the addition of Force Gurkha to his garage, he will have a dedicated 4 × 4 vehicle for the expedition, and the Mahindra Thar will remain unchanged for his city’s driving needs.
The Mahindra Thar is available with a petrol and diesel engine option and both of these engine options come with manual and automatic transmissions. The Force Gurkha, on the other hand, is only available with a diesel engine and comes with a manual gearbox as standard. Force Gurkha offers differential locks on the front and back.
