The annual National Western Stock Show officially returned Saturday.

The 16-day stock show draws hundreds of thousands of people from across the United States and other countries to the complex in north Denver, where livestock auctions, horse shows and rodeos are held. Hundreds of booths at a trade show typically fill the Exposition Hall.

The event was canceled due to the pandemic last year, but is back with upgrades to the facilities and the opening of Colorado State University’s new Spur campus buildings.

Prices go up for Force Gurkha

Following its launch late last year, Force Motors has now hiked the prices of the Gurkha. The carmaker’s off-roader is now dearer by ₹ 51,000 with the sole variant now priced at ₹ 14.10 lakh (ex-showroom, India).

This rise in price has not been accompanied by the addition of any features. Hence, the Gurkha still comes kitted with a dark, grey colour scheme inside the cabin, a new touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth support, tilt and telescopic adjust steering, USB charging sockets for all four occupants, power windows, central locking, air-conditioning, LED headlamps with DRLs, tyre pressure monitor, and even a factory fit snorkel.

Under the hood, the new Gurkha comes with an upgraded version of the 2.6-litre diesel engine that develops 91hp and 250Nm. This engine comes paired to a five-speed manual gearbox and also gets a four-wheel drive with low range and manual locking front and rear differentials.

Unfortunately, Force does not yet have an option for an automatic gearbox and even the previous-gen Gurkha Xtreme’s 140hp, 2.2-litre diesel has been dropped from the line-up.

In terms of competitors, the new Force Gurkha’s closest rival is the new Mahindra Thar in its top-spec, diesel-manual LX hard top guise, which is priced at ₹ 13.69 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
