New Ford Endeavour Grille and Decal

Ford Endeavour is one of the best sports utility vehicles in the 20 lakh price bracket. It looks fantastic in its new design and brings some new decals which look sporty and stylish on its doors and indicators mounted on the rear view mirrors on either side. Ford has now given the Endeavour a new bumper and headlamp cluster. The exterior presence of the Ford Endeavour is commanding, a must have in this segment. It comes with massive 16 inch alloys. Also adds to the appeal is the spare tyre on the tail gate. Ford Endeavour brings plenty of space in its roomy interiors and feels airy and fresh thanks to the large windows. It has ample leg and head room inside and brings plenty of modern features.

The center console has a display which shows the audio head unit options, GPS and reverse guide camera. The music system has Aux-in, USB/iPod, CD and radio connectivity and large air conditioning vents. It is however missing auto climate control. There are plenty of cubby holes inside for storing your small items. The instrument console displays the 4 wheel drive options along with the tacho, speedometer and fuel level gauges, all of which are easy to read. Endeavour comes with separate a/c vents for the second and third row passengers.It also brings a vast storage area of 430 liters which can be expanded by removing or folding the seats.

Ford Endeavour comes with two engine options. It has a 2.5 litre engine and a 3.0 litre option. The 2.5 litre engine produces 143 PS of maximum power and delivers a maximum torque of 330 Nm at 1,800 rpm. It has plenty of torque and brings top performance in the city and on highway hauls.The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. ARAI tested fuel efficiency of this engine is at 13.1 kmpl

The 3.0 litre variant on the Endeavour produces 156 PS at 3,200 rpm and 380 NM of maximum torque. This engine is available with a 4×2 automatic transmission and a 4×4 automatic transmission option. ARAI fuel economy of this motor is at 11.4 kmpl. This SUV has a well tuned suspension with the front performing better than the rear to provide comfort and high level of stability at all times. The 4X4 version comes with electric shift-fly and a sports cruise control.

The body roll is well controlled on the Ford Endeavour. It is not built for spirited cornering but will take you places. Also, the Endeavour disappoints a little on tarmac. The car lacks the punch that is expected of the 3.0 litre engine and the long gearing makes a lot of noise with not enough output in terms of speed.

Endeavour comes with a host of safety features as well. It has Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD). There are 4 airbags in the SUV.

Ford Endeavour 2.5 4X2 manual is available at an ex-showroom Delhi price of Rs 19.83 lakh. The 3.0 Endeavour 4X2 automatic is priced at Rs 21.28 lakh and the 3.0 4X4 automatic is priced at Rs 23.06 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom Delhi.

Ford Endeavour Interiors

Ford Endeavour brings plenty of space in its roomy interiors and feels airy thanks to the large windows. It has ample leg and head room inside and brings plenty of modern features. Fit and finish could be better though. It has adjustable driver seats and the driving position is very good. The ergonomics are excellent and all the controls are within reach. The center console has a display which shows the audio head unit options, GPS and reverse guide camera.

The audio head unit is a 6 CD changers stereo system and Aux-in, USB/iPod connectivity and large air conditioning vents. It is however missing auto climate control. There are plenty of cubby holes inside for storing your small items. The instrument console displays the 4 wheel drive options along with the tacho, speedometer and fuel level gauges, all of which are easy to read. It also brings a vast storage area of 430 liters which can be expanded by removing or folding the seats.

Fantastic SUV no doubt
By Posted on Jul,07,22 3:09 PM

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Great Interiors,Comfort,

Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,

I have been driving this beast for 7 months now and I am very happy to note that I am fully satisfied and happy with the vehicle. I drive a Endeavour 3L 4X4 automatic. The driving is a pleasure and completely great in heavy traffic. It is very easy to maneuver and the sitting posture is great. I used to get back pain on long journeys in my early Tata Safari, but in this car I have never felt any discomfort in my back. Max I have driven in one shot is 7hours. The automatic transmission is very smooth any the pickup is just great. I can leave everyone in a cloud of dust by just one flick of my accelerator in a red light. The ride can be a bit bumpy but if I reduce tyre pressures to 30psi then the ride gets good. Also the turning raduis of this SUV is great and I have used it in busy roads in Bangalore, and I m very happy. I drive to office and back home every day in my Endeavour and get a mileage of 9.5KMPL every day. On highways I get around 11KMPL.
