Ford plans an Endeavour Raptor

Ford plans an Endeavour Raptor

With Ford’s Raptor treatment, the company’s models such as the F-150 and new Ranger have evolved from regular models into more performance oriented variants. However, recent reports suggest that Ford may also lend its Endeavour (called ‘Everest’ in some markets) with the Raptor treatment. These include horsepower increments and additional performance cues that make them stand out from the standard models.

Ford Performance Head Engineer, Jamal Hameedi, told reporters that "there’s no reason why we wouldn’t do an Everest Raptor. For what it’s worth, the Everest rides on the same platform as the new Ranger, albeit a bit shorter and with a slightly different suspension setup. The first F-150 Raptor was way beyond our wildest dreams in terms of success, and that success spawned a Ranger Raptor. So to do an SUV is a little more difficult because you have to figure out how to deal with the rear suspension, in terms of packaging.” 

Ford is confident that performance SUVs are the way forward. Another Ford official has quoted that there’s definitely a case for more performance oriented or sportier SUVs in the future. Let’s wait and watch how this episode unfolds, and as always, we shall keep you posted of the details.
