Force Gurkha awards business to Triton

Triton Communications has been awarded the strategy, creative and media mandate for Force Gurkha, the latest offering from Force Motors.

Slated to launch in April 2013, Force Gurkha will be the first vehicle in its class to offer Diff Locks, Higher Ground Clearance and a Snorkel Intake to manoeuvre snow, sand, mud slush, mountains and comfortably drive through water, said an official release.

According to Prasan Firodia, MD, Force Motors, “There is a lot the vehicle can do compared to the others in its class. It is not an urban four wheel drive. It is tough, rugged and meant for those who drive where roads do not exist. Besides the off-roading enthusiast, this vehicle will be extremely useful in tea/coffee plantations, mines, construction sites, combat situations and a lot more.”

From the days of the generic ‘Jeep’, the category has witnessed a lot of activity. Over the last decade, there have been a slew of launches in utility vehicles across price points and capabilities. They have rapidly captured the market due to their multifarious use.

Renton D’Sousa, CEO and NCD Triton said, “To me the Force Gurkha is ‘The Off-Roader’ for the ‘Off-Roader’. It fills the gap between the driver’s expectations and the on-ground capabilities of the other 4X4 vehicles. The Force Gurkha is a 4X4 that can outmanoeuvre any season or terrain. Hence it is a 4X4X4. I call it the ‘Extreme Off-Roader Vehicle’.”
