The Endeavour was recently launched in Thailand with new 2.0 L engine in two configuration replacing 2.2 L and 3.2 L engines
Ford officially revealed Endeavour facelift in May and the American manufacturer is introducing new model across different countries. The Endeavour was recently launched in Thailand and the new model doesn’t come with old 2.2 L and 3.2 L diesel engines, instead Ford is introducing only 2.0 L unit in two configurations.
The current 2.2 L diesel engine produces 160 PS of power and 385 Nm of torque, while the 3.2 L engine puts out 200 PS of power and 470 Nm of torque. These engines are mated to 6 speed automatic gearbox. The new 2.0 L turbocharged engine puts out 180 PS of power and 420 Nm of torque and 215 PS and 500 Nm.
This engine is mated to new 10 speed automatic gearbox, which will improve performance and fuel efficiency significantly over previous model. We are expecting Ford to introduce this engine instead of current higher displacement diesel engines as it will help them to get excise duty benefits thanks to smaller displacement.
Ford will also offer both two wheel drive and four wheel drive models with Endeavour. Toyota Fortuner is the arch rival of Endeavour and the current model is already priced lower than segment best seller, with excise duty benefits Ford will be able to price new Endeavour even more aggressively against competition to drive growth.
The exterior changes on Endeavour include new grille, tweaked headlamps and new bumper at front. The top spec model Endeavour now comes with option of 20 inch alloy wheels and rear also gets a new bumper, which round of the exterior changes. The interior changes include a new touch screen infotainment system with latest Sync software.
The Endeavour already comes with long list of features like leather seats, cruise control, rain sensing wipers, projector headlamps and more. Ford has also introduced auto emergency braking with pedestrian detection with Endeavour. The new Endeavour is expected to make its India debut early next year.
