The Gurkha is probably the most comfortable ladder-frame SUV on broken roads. The way it can flatten out broken patches and imperfections on the road at city speeds is mighty impressive. Occupants just glide over the roads and this comes with a sense of indestructibility as well. As a bonus, the suspension is quiet. This will be ideal for people who want to use it for commutes to their farms or project sites where roads do not exist. However, as the speeds start to climb, this floatiness of the Gurkha starts to become a disadvantage. The driver no longer feels connected to the tarmac and the cabin too moves around a lot. It’s not jarring or harsh, but the movement itself can be scary. Handling too involves a lot of body roll and the steering barely offers feedback. All of this combined makes the Gurkha master of one trade - and that is to keep you comfortable where there are no roads. Road trips on highways will require a certain amount of trust in the driver. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive before making the final decision.
