Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

Spotted in the same spec as the Indonesian version.

The 2015 Ford Endeavour has been spotted testing again in India, by Youtube user Sachin Patil on NH-218 near Bijapur, Karnataka sporting 4WD and 2.2L badges.

The Ford Everest Ambiente variant (base model) in Indonesia comes with a 2.2-litre engine mated to a 6-manual gearbox that drives the 4WD system. It is believed that this very specification is on test.

The model believed on test is a 2.2L variant with 4WD and a 6-speed manual gearbox.

In India, the new Endeavour has been anticipated by the media to come equipped with a 4WD system only along with a 3.2-litre engine, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. This sighting suggests that Ford India will offer it with the 2.2-litre motor, which would make 4WD more accessible.

The other variants expected to be sold are a 4×2 model with 2.2-litre engine and 6-speed manual gearbox, and the same with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Features found on the test vehicle are consistent with what’s available in the international model, including the projector headlamps, LED taillights, 18-inch wheels and other styling appliqués on the exterior.

If the tested variant is sold, it would mean that Ford India is making 4WD more accessible from the price perspective.
