Specs of Last-Gen Endeavour
In India, the Endeavour used to come with a 2.0-litre diesel engine making 175 PS of peak power and 420 Nm of peak torque. It came with a 10-speed automatic transmission and 4×4 drive system before discontinuation. There were a ton of hardware to make it an extremely capable off-roading machine. If Ford decides to bring this SUV to India through the CBU route, the prices will be too high compared to the competition.
