Here is a great mash-up of two of the most popular SUVs from Ford, the Endeavour in India and the Expedition in the international markets with an exchanged facade. Ford has recently stopped manufacturing cars in India. There are over a million Ford vehicle owners in the country. The Endeavour is one of the most profitable and popular products from the American carmaker. The Expedition plays the same role in the international markets. But what happens when you combine both SUVs and make a single unit. The automobile enthusiast at SRK Designs has done exactly that. What do you think about the Expedition facade slapped on Ford Endeavour?

The video explains in great depth how each and every modification is achieved. The Expedition is way bigger than the Endeavour in terms of the overall exterior dimensions. But the designer has chosen the Endeavour to be the base and the elements of the Expedition are superimposed on it. Hence, the “Experest” has a broad front grille with two horizontal bars and a unique design pattern, C-shaped LED DRLs surrounding the LED headlamps which are neatly connected to the bars on the grille, chunky bumper with skid plates from the Expedition, stylish fog lamps at both edges of the bumper. The high-profile blacked-out alloy wheels are also taken from the bigger SUV along with the side profile with characteristic creases. The side steps enhance the ingress and egress aspect of the SUV along with the blacked-out A, B and C-pillars.
Before discontinuation, the Endeavour came with a 2.0-litre diesel engine making 175 PS of peak power and 420 Nm of peak torque. The transmission duties are carried by a 10-speed automatic gearbox. Various drive systems (4×4) and terrain modes help in propelling the Endeavour through any kind of environment. You can get your hands on one before the stock runs out with prices ranging from Rs 33.81 lakh to Rs 36.26 lakh, ex-showroom. The direct and worthy rival to the Endeavour has always been the Toyota Fortuner. Apart from that, it also had competition from Isuzu MU-X and MG Gloster.
