India is a big market for the bulky SUVs, and Ford making no exception has brought the new Endeavour for testing purpose on the national soil. As we already know, the company sells this model for past many years, but since the market is niche and very much diluted as well, it is Toyota Fortuner that has left behind the competitors like Mitsubishi Pajero, Chevrolet Captiva, Force One SUV, Isuzu MU-7, Hyundai Santa Fe, SsangYong Rexton and others in the rear view mirrors.
However, those big SUVs are also a status quo for some. A reason for the new one to sell well against the rest, this Blue Oval logoed carmaker is one of the early entrants in this line of business.
The new Endeavour wearing camouflages was the same that is unveiled at auto shows in recent past. Pretty much the attire is carried over of the present gen, but that hexagonal front grill, daytime running lights (DRLs), fresh set of alloy wheels and other nip and tucks makes it stand clear of the 2015 model plate. The interesting part of this story is company was testing the new Endeavour with chrome alloys.
Apparently, the other half of amendments may receive by the cabin. New SYNC2 infotainment system, adaptive cruise control are some of them. The safety features include ESP, hill start assist, lane departure warning tech, blind spot detection etc.
However, the refinement to new Endeavour is only cosmetic in nature, which will see the engine option of a 2.2-litre and 3.2-litre 4-cylinder diesel under the hood even with the brand new avatar.
