Force Trax Cruiser price, Force Gurkha, Tadoba Tiger Safari SUV


Priced from Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom), the Trax designed to take tourists on jungle safaris gets unique touches, including dual sunroofs.

Force Motors has revealed a new Trax Cruiser designed specifically for jungle safari expeditions. We’ve been told the first set of these specially designed vehicles are going to be put to work at the Tadoba Tiger Reserve soon. This version of the Trax Cruiser has multiple unique design and utility-related mods that will aid in the forest-related operations it’ll take on. 

  • Force Trax jungle safari is based on Trax Cruiser
  • Gets a six-seat cabin and five doors 
  • Gets two sunroofs and rear AC vents as standard 

Force Trax jungle safari SUV: what’s different

With the specially designed Trax Cruiser, Force Motors is aiming to provide a more comfortable experience for tourists on jungle safaris. It comes with a six-seat cabin and a slightly larger glass house. While there are fixed glass windows on all sides to protect passengers, the cabin gets its usual front AC vents and roof-mounted AC vents for those in the back. Additionally, it also comes with dual sunroofs, a first for any Force Trax vehicle. The seats get leatherette surfaces and seem to be individual bucket seats for each passenger. 

A large-ish roof rack has been provided along with specially-designed “guards” across the sides of the vehicle. Upfront, the Force Trax jungle safari gets a bull-guard that stretches across the nose, and another one bordering the front windshield. There’s also been some updates to creature comforts, like the onboard-mobile charging points. 

Force Trax jungle safari SUV: under the skin  

There is no change to the platform or dimensions, which means that under the skin, the Force Trax jungle safari is the same as any standard Force Trax Cruiser or Citiline. At 5.1 metres long, the Force Trax jungle safari vehicle has a more than 3-metre long wheelbase, similar to the standard version. 

The specially designed Force Trax jungle safari vehicle comes with the Mercedes-Benz-derived 2.6-litre diesel engine that produces just 91hp and 250Nm of torque, and is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. It also comes with an anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake-force distribution (EBD).

Sources tell us that Force Trax jungle safari vehicle is made-to-order only, and is priced from Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom). Initially, a few units are expected to join the Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve wildlife sanctuary in the Chandrapur district of Maharashtra.
