We don’t know what to call it, but certainly Force Motors did it. A seven-door Trax was found testing nearby the vicinity of carmaker’s bay in Pune, mentioning the launch during the coming months. But the positioning, it took us over a confusing way to arrive at a coming point. Force selling its vehicles in rural areas and generates enough revenue to keep up the cost of bread and butter for its employees. Only four trims of the Trax are being sold in those areas which are heavily filled with Tata Sumo and Mahindra utility vehicles: Gama, Cruiser, Toofan and Ambulance. Addition of this seven-door variant will be the fifth model of its lineup. As of now, one can buy Trax with options of eleven-seats at the max, which will then be notched to an all new level, apparently leading a one of its kind example in the country. Couldn’t exactly confirm but this version would even surpass the seating options of Toyota Hiace which is bound to launch in India soon.
Hence, under the hood, power is speculated to be sent by the existing option of 2.6-litre diesel engine worth of a paltry 60bhp mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Spotting the differences, Cruiser and Toofan comes as extended versions of Gama. Force Gurkha, Trax Gama and Trax Cruiser are all based on the same platform, where this will be the fourth man of lineup on the same base.
Will the seven-door Trax be an option that rural buyers may use like a limo? Feel free to pen down your thoughts in the comments section below…
