Ford is yet to reveal the dimensions of the new Endeavour, or even its kerb weight. What we do know is that the SUV has a 225 mm ground clearance with a water wading depth of 800 mm. The off-road prowess of the new Endeavour is further bolstered by the new Terrain Management System, which allows the driver to choose between different driving modes.

Apart from giving it a new exterior design, Ford’s Asia Pacific team which developed the car have finally given the Endeavour an interior fitting its price tag. The tech-loaded interior also gets Ford’s SYNC2 multimedia system with an 8-inch touchscreen display.

Production of the new SUV will start in Rayong, Thailand and Nanchang, China, early next year, the company said.
