The Endeavour facelift model also comes with a number of new safety features like auto emergency braking with pedestrian detection, 7-airbags, ABS, EBD, terrain response system to name few. The current model is powered by 2.2 L and 3.2 L diesel engines but the company is going to replace these engines with a new unit.
The 2.0 L turbocharged diesel engine produces 180 PS and 420 Nm in the entry-level variants while the top spec model gets the same engine with 215 PS and 500 Nm. The power is sent to all four wheels via the 10-speed automatic transmission. According to Ford, this new gearbox and engine combo give better mileage and more performance.
