New Ford Endeavour – Auto Expo 2016
Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!
Available with two diesel engine options.
The new Ford Endeavour has been showcased at Auto Expo 2016. The full-size SUV is available in two trims: Trend and Titanium.
The SUV has a bold and muscular design that appeals to customers with its big, off-road personality. It is built on a ladder frame chassis and has dimensions of 4,892 mm, 1,860 mm and 1,837 mm in length, width and height respectively. The seats are laid out in a three-row configuration and can seat up to seven occupants in comfort, mainly due to its 2,850 mm wheelbase.
The interior features a dual-tone dashboard that has the SYNC2 infotainment system with voice command support. In the top-end Titanium trim, seats are upholstered in leather, much like the three-spoke multifunction steering wheel. Ambient lighting, keyless entry, 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat, powered side mirrors, 10-speaker audio system, electrochromatic rearview mirror, dual-zone climate control and ceiling AC vents for second and third row passengers are some other convenience-enhancing attributes.
Two engines are available in the Endeavour, both diesel. The first is a 3.2-liter five-cylinder engine generating 200 PS and 470 Nm. It is mated exclusively to a 6-speed automatic gearbox sending power to all four wheels. Next up is the less powerful 2.2-liter four cylinder mill producing 160 PS and 385 Nm of torque. This block is available with a 6-speed manual transmission as standard. Ford has made available the 6-speed automatic gearbox and 4WD system as an option.
