Ashwin Ram

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.

Here is a brief technical specification comparison between the new Ford Endeavour and its rivals including the existing Toyota Fortuner, the Chevrolet Trailblazer, the SsangYong Rexton, the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and the Hyundai Santa Fe.

The new Endeavour gets two engine options – a 2.2-litre four-cylinder TDCi diesel engine and a 3.2-litre five-cylinder TDCi diesel motor. The smaller engine is offered in both 4×2 and 4×4 configurations and gets the choices of a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission, while the larger engine can be chosen only with a six-speed automatic gearbox and is offered only on the top-end 4×4 model. The 2.2-litre mill produces 160 PS at 3,200 rpm and 385 Nm at 1,600-2,500 rpm, and the 3.2-litre motor generates 200 PS at 3,000 rpm and 470 Nm at 1,750-2,500 rpm.

The new Ford Endeavour would be launched in India on January 19.

Hence the Ford Endeavour offers a wide spectrum of variants, which is unlike the case of most of the other SUVs in this comparison. The Chevrolet Trailblazer is available only in one, 4×2 variant which has a 2.8-litre diesel engine that produces 200 PS and 500 Nm, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. All other models including the existing Fortuner, the Pajero Sport, the Rexton and the Santa Fe have manual and automatic transmission options, all of which are five-speed units except the one on the South Korean model (which is six-speed).
