Update - Fresh image gallery added showing the facelift in different colours.
Following the first look at the 2018 Ford Endeavour (2018 Ford Everest), IAB’s rendering artist Shoeb Kalania has created a rendering to preview the facelifted model’s design in near-production guise.
The 2018 Ford Endeavour features a new radiator grille, a silver frame for the lower grille and new 20-inch six-double-spoke alloy wheels. The rest, including the interior, should look the same as in the current version. Ford will introduce several new features including passive keyless entry, engine start-stop button and engine auto-start-stop. In addition to improved convenience, the new model should offer higher fuel economy.
Internationally, Ford plans to introduce the facelifted Ford Everest with the following four diesel engines:
- 2.2L TDCi 150 PS/375 Nm
- 2.0L TDCi 180 PS/420 Nm
- 3.2L TDCi 200 PS/470 Nm
- 2.0L TDCi Bi-Turbo 213 PS/500 Nm
Two new diesel engines with a 2.0-litre displacement are on the way, while the 2.2L diesel engine’s maximum power and maximum torque are set to go down 10 PS and 10 Nm respectively. A new 10-speed automatic transmission is incoming with the mid-cycle refresh. It is safe to assume the range-topping 213 PS 2.0L diesel engine model will launch with this transmission. Ford may offer the new Bi-Turbo engine and 10-speed AT in a first-ever rugged Raptor variant. The 6-speed automatic transmission option will continue. Ford India will then have new configurations to select from, though there is no confirmation that Endeavour lineup will change.
