Is Ford Endeavour a stylish makeover of a beast?

When it comes to full-sized SUVs, the Ford Endeavour is the best. It doesn't feel slow or boring despite having a smaller engine than its competitors. It also has excellent road presence and a wonderful ride quality. Its somewhat more upscale interiors, improved on-road dynamics, and higher comfort coefficient give it enough of an advantage over vehicles like the Toyota Fortuner, even though it might not fetch as much money when sold.

The Endeavour got a minor aesthetic update. As a result, there are no visual changes in the BS6 update. If you look closely enough, you can see that the headlamps now have square projector units rather than the round ones from the previous year. They now contain LED elements. The bold, 3.2-embossed engine badge on the side fender has been replaced with a simple nameplate for the SUV. Everything else is the same, aside from that.

The dashboard arrangement remains the same inside the cabin. Everything seems to be of the highest calibre, and the asking price is totally justified. It's a new gear shifter. On the right side, it now has a +/- toggle. FordPass is the only new feature. This is Ford's take on connected car technology, which includes geofencing, remote start, health checks, location tracking, and emergency phone calls. It will have the ability to receive updates over the air as well.

Engine and Gearbox
Ford powered by a new 2.0-liter engine also called the EcoBlue. It produces 420 Nm of torque and 170 PS of power. These are situated directly between the older 2.2- and 3.2-liter engines. There is currently only one 10-speed automatic gearbox available for both 4x2 and 4x4 versions. Performance hasn't been affected even though the power and torque numbers are now lower than for the 3.2L engine.

The first thing you notice when you start it up is that this one has a smoother tone. Compared to the 3.2L, it feels less noisy and more refined. The vibrations are even more controlled. It moves forward much more smoothly than before when you step on the gas. This is a result of the new engine's cleaner revving. Overtakes are a cinch because of the much cleaner power delivery. Your daily commute is smoother, but you don't feel the torque surge's rush.

Endeavour has a rear camera, rear parking sensors and TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring system). Hill descent control, front parking sensors, an auto-dimming inside rearview mirror, and a driver's knee airbag.

In addition to the front and rear fog lamps, standard safety features include six airbags, traction control, ESP, hill-start assist, auto headlamps and wipers, and ABS with EBD. It also has a volumetric burglar alarm system that can sense movement inside the vehicle.

There are 7 variants of Endeavour available. Among these seven variations, three are automatic, three are manual, and three are automatic (TC). Three colours are available for Endeavour: Diffused Silver, Absolute Black, and Diamond White. Some of these colours do, however, come in particular variations. 

  • Improved and more productive engine. 
  • Sophisticated gearbox with the ability to lock and skip gears. 
  • Complete off-road kit is still accessible. 
  • It is the only connected vehicle in the class thanks to FordPass. 
  • Prices have decreased significantly. 
  • Not a significant feature update. 
  • The 3.2L's torque surge is absent. 
  • Just a steering that can be tilted. 

The price of Endeavour ranges from Rs. 29.19 Lakh to Rs. 36.26 Lakh.
