The Toyota Fortuner might still be the best-selling premium 7-seat SUV in India, but the Ford Endeavour seems to have caught up in recent months

Toyota recently introduced a mid-life refresh for the Fortuner in India, which further spices up the rivalry between the two full-size SUVs.

Comparison Verdict

2021 Toyota Fortuner Official Accessories front

The Fortuner has reigned the seven-seat premium SUV segment for years, and the facelift is touted to bring in more success to the nameplate, thanks to the additional features, the updated design as well as an uprated diesel powertrain.

While the Ford Endeavour still has a slight edge over the 2021 Fortuner in terms of features on offer, the Toyota SUV gets a bigger diesel engine with more power and more torque, as well as the option of a manual gearbox. In addition, there is also an optional petrol powertrain. That being said, both the SUVs go neck and neck against each other as far as price is concerned.
