The 2020 Ford Endeavour has been launched in India for a starting price of INR 29.55 lakh*. The biggest improvements in the new mid-size SUV are the BS-VI 2.0L EcoDiesel engine and the 10-speed automatic transmission.
The BS-VI 2.0-litre EcoDiesel engine powering the 2020 Ford Endeavour belongs to the Panther engine family. It’s made in single-turbo and twin-turbo versions, but India is getting only the former, as the latter is very costly. The single-turbo version has been tuned to produce 170 PS peak power and 420 Nm peak torque for the mid-size SUV sold in our market.
The 2.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder and 3.2-litre turbocharged five-cylinder BS-IV diesel engine engines have been discontinued. The BS-VI 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine offers a 20% improvement in low-end torque over the former. Also, it is more refined and quieter with a 4-decibel reduction in idle noise. It offers a 20% improvement in low-end torque.
The new Ford Endeavour is the only mid-size SUV in India to be offered with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which delivers faster and smoother acceleration response. The fuel economy rating of the BS-VI version is 13.9 km/l (2WD)/12.4 km/l (4WD). The BS-VI version offers up to 14% improvement in fuel efficiency.
Along with the new engine and transmission, the Ford Endeavour has gained all-LED headlamps with the MY2020 update. The all-LED headlamps are encased in an all-new square lamp cluster and provide up to 20% lighting penetration for improved night-time visibility. They replace the HID headlamps, which were standard previously.
