Expected Price: Rs 25-30 lakh
Expected Time of Launch: Mid 2015
The 2015 Ford Endeavour exudes a premium look both inside out, something that the current version sorely lacks. This new SUV receives a large chrome hexagonal front grille, new LED daytime running lights and an aluminium front and rear underbody protection.
The SUV will be available in both petrol and diesel engine options. For the petrol, it will get the 2.0-litre twin-scroll EcoBoost engine. The diesel engine options include a 2.2-litre four-cylinder and a 3.2-litre five-cylinder engine.
Enhancing ease of the SUV’s off-road operation is the terrain management system (TMS), which allows drivers to select between four pre-programmed settings while driving: normal, snow/gravel/grass, sand and rock. It changes the vehicle’s throttle and transmission response and adjusts the traction control accordingly to the terrain. We expect this new SUV to hit the Indian shores by mid-2015 with India specific engine range.
