There is no denying the fact that the Toyota Fortuner has ruled the SUV segment for years now. However, earlier this year, Ford brought the very capable new Endeavour to India. That along with the Chevrolet Trailblazer did manage to eat into its sales. Now, Toyota has launched the new Fortuner in India, which promises to be much better than the car it replaces. So will it continue to dominate the market? Find out here in our New Toyota Fortuner vs Ford Endeavour vs Trailblazer Comparison comparison of specifications and prices.

All three SUVs get almost all the basic features one would expect from a vehicle costing upwards of 20 lacs. This time around, the Fortuner does not skimp out on features like the previous gen model. However, it still misses out on a sunroof. Top-end Endeavour features a panaromic sunroof.

New Toyota Fortuner vs Ford Endeavour vs Trailblazer Comparison – Design

All three SUVs follow a similar design principle of being big, bulky SUVs. They are characterised by chunky wheel arches, a high set bonnet and beefy tyres- pretty much what the public demands. However, in terms of pure muscle, the Fortuner seems to be on the backfoot here. That said, it still looks very sharp and offers tremendous road presence. We perefer the way the Endeavour looks over the new Fortuner’s flashy exterior. The Trailblazer will get a facelift early next year.

The interiors of the new Fortuner feel very modern and luxurious. The usage of dark material gives the cabin of the Fortuner a classy touch. The dashboard of the Trailblazer and the Endeavour get very clean, straight lines and come finished in black and beige. The Endeavour’s cabin looks a bit more premium than that of the Trailblazer’s.

 

New Toyota Fortuner vs Ford Endeavour vs Trailblazer Comparison – Verdict

With the launch of the Trailblazer and the new Endeavour, the Fortuner is surely came under some serious threat from these two new products. However, the new Fortuner is a vastly imporved product and should be able to continue the Fortuner’s dominance. However, price could play a crucial role here. And based on that, the Ford Endeavour and Chevrolet Trailblazer seem better value for money.

  • Price- The new Fortuner is pricier than the Endeavour and Trailblazer. Ford has priced the Endeavour very competently. There is a difference of about Rs 1.5-2 Lakh in the prices of the models of these two. Clearly, Ford and Chevrolet have already won the price war.
  • Specifications- Clearly, the top model of the Endeavour is more powerful than the top-end Fortuner. However, the Trazilblazer outclasses these two in terms of sheer power and torque. But it misses out on a 4×4 setup.
  • Dimensions- The new Fortuner is the smallest of the lot.
  • Exterior Design- While design is a matter of personal choice, we pick the Endeavour over the new Fortuner. This is simply because the clean surfaces combined with modern design elements translate into a SUV that looks really daunting. In comparison, the Fortuner’s design, while thoroughly modern, isn’t as aggressive.
  • Interior Design- Much like the exterior, even the interior of the Endeavour is better. It is cleaner, more spacious and probably more premium too.

  1. Hi ,
    I am Shashi from Kolkata I had test driven Chevrolet trailblazer on the 13th of November and I was quite impressed just wanted to know if I should wait for the new ford endeavor ?
    Which is a better car overall ?

  2. It might or might not be a better car, we can’t comment before driving it. However, Ford India definitely offers a slightly better after sales experience. We would say you should wait for the new Endeavour before putting down your money on a new SUV.

    Regards

  3. All three (traiblazer, endeavour/ everest, fortuner) looks similar to me and attracted, not being able to decide which to buy! can u recommend which one will be impressive, better interior, exterior ? for me, outside look as well as interior is important! after buying, i shud not repent that other one is looking better than my car! its my lifetime issue!

  4. Hello,
    Well I am just another blogger looking and seeing other blogs. Well I am certainly impressed by your blog. Not only that, but I am actually looking for a car for my father. We were to take the Fortuner . Now I am going to wait for the Ford . I see it as an appealing car and a competitor to Fortuner. My father is a aggressive driver, which car would you recommend. A car with looks comfort and a lot of power.

  5. Waiting for the new Endeavour could be a good idea. You can also look at the Trailblazer, it is a really good product. However, it isn’t as nimble as the Fortuner. However, in terms of power, looks and comfort, the Trailblazer scores pretty well.

    Regards

  6. I have been driving Pajero 2.8 SFX so far and was looking for a change. I do some serious long distance travel. Never really liked Fortuner (don’t know why).
    Have been waiting patiently for Trailblazer and Endeavour. But i got inclined towards Trailblazer for the following reasons and have already booked it (after a test drive).
    1. Have seen both Trailblazer and new Endeavour in Philippines and Trailblazer design looks more simplistic and less lines and curves. On SUV, i like it boxy and not curvy (though gentlemen prefer curves, but not on SUV).
    2. Endeavour somehow looks disproportionate – its more like Ecosport on Steroids
    3. Trailblazer does not come in 4×4 but trust me most of the places like mud, sand and places where you need 4×4, Trailblazer can manage it with it’s Torque, BHP and Ground Clearance. No one is going for hardcore offroading on weekends with 30 lac car. For that you have second hand modified Gypsy and Mahindra Calssis
