What’s good about it?
Ford has introduced the new Endeavour with standard features in the form of six airbags (seven airbags in Titanium+), SYNC3 infotainment system, ABS with EBD, stability assist, hill start assist, Power driver’s seat and leather upholstery. This time around, the vehicle is offered with hands-free power liftgate which opens and closes the liftgate with just a trigger of a sensor by the leg of the user. Least said the Titanium+ comes with a 4x4 terrain management system, semi-automatic parallel park assist, power folding third-row seat and more.
What’s not so good?
Although the new Endeavour has a masculine bodyline, there are just a few changes over its predecessor. The panoramic sunroof, front parking sensor and driver knee airbag is limited to the top spec variant.
Best variant to buy?
The top spec Titanium+ is a good option considering the fact that it offers a bigger 3.2-litre diesel engine with a 4x4 terrain management system. The SUV gets seven airbags including driver knee airbag, semi-automatic parallel park assist, power folding third-row seat and eight-way power adjustable front passenger seat with lumbar support.
