Force Motors has launched the base variant and the 4x4 version on the Force One. The price of the base variant is Rs 8.99lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). This version doesn’t get the 2.2-litre engine that is already powering the Force One. This gets a 2.6-litre engine that produces 82bhp of power and 230Nm of maximum torque. This powertrain powers the Gurkha, and it is BS III compliant.
The base model misses out on daylight running lamps and doesn’t rear fog lamps either. The roof rails and the alloy wheels too go missing on the base model, however it retains the electrically adjustable mirrors. There is no integrated music system and even the seats are wrapped in fabric. All three rows still have air-conditioning and multi-information display too.
The new 4x4 gets ABS and of course the shift on fly 4x4 with electronic slip differential. The regular 4x2 model is now called the SX, and it also has ABS as an optional pack. The 4x4 retains the 2.2-litre Daimler engine, producing about 140bhp of maximum power and 321Nm of peak torque.
