The 2016 Endeavour would be available in India with two diesel engines.

Mr. Nigel Harris, President and Managing Director of Ford India, told Indian Autos Blog earlier that the new Endeavour would be previewed in the country this year, though its market launch is slated for 2016.

For the Indian market, the 2016 Ford Endeavour would be offered with a choice of two diesel engines: a 2.2-liter four-cylinder producing 148 bhp and a 3.2-liter five-cylinder TDCi engine capable of 197 bhp. While the five-cylinder unit will be paired only to a 6-speed automatic transmission, the 2.2-liter engine would get a 6-speed manual in addition to an automatic.
