Ford Endeavour debuted in India somewhere around 2003 and since then it has been a popular choice for SUV lovers. The earlier one was rather long but still came with the rough and tough looks.
Now, the next-generation Endeavour is due in India soon. Ford India officially confirmed that by 2019, it will launch the facelifted version of Aspire, Figo, Endeavour and Mustang. Aspire facelift is out and most likely the next in line is Figo, followed by Endeavour.
The latest version of the Endeavour will get a new 2.0 Litre diesel engine, some cosmetic changes, and some extra features. The new engine will mostly come in the lowest variant.
Currently, it competes fiercely with the Toyota Fortuner and Volkswagen Tiguan. However, Fortuner lacks some features that Endeavour and Tiguan offer. We expect the prices to hike a bit, starting from Rs 27 Lakhs up to Rs 30 Lakhs.
