Ford will launch the 2019 updated Endeavour in India with two engine options and five colours. Currently, there are only two variants- Titanium and Titanium+, with the entry-level Trend models being dropped. Ford has also brought back the manual option for the 2.2-litre engine and this will be offered only in the 4X2 configuration.
All variants of this updated Endeavour get six airbags, SYNC3 infotainment system, ABS with EBD, stability assist, hill start assist, Power driver’s seat and leather upholstery.
The Titanium+ variant, which is likely to be offered only with the 3.2-litre five-cylinder engine gets a power passenger seat, terrain management system, auto park assist, knee airbag for driver, Power folding third row, sunroof, ambient lighting, hill descent control and front parking sensors. There are five colour options- diffused silver, silver, white, black and red.
The 2.2-litre diesel is a four-cylinder unit producing 158bhp/385Nm while the 3.2-litre produces 197bhp/470Nm. The 2.2-litre unit can be had with a six-speed manual or a six-speed AT while the 3.2-litre engine can only be had with a six-speed AT and 4X4 as standard.
The Endeavour is Ford’s rival to the likes of the Toyota Fortuner as well as the Isuzu MU-X in the ladder-on-frame SUV class of vehicles. We expect that Ford will only marginally increase the price of this updated Endeavour as it faces tough competition from the Toyota Fortuner in this regard.
