Here is a video of a Ford Endeavour off-roading in water. The popular SUV is accompanied by a ton of other off-roading monsters. The convoy includes the likes of Mahindra Thar, Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, Mahindra Scorpio, Maruti Gypsy, etc. The YouTuber is famous for making content around off-roading adventures. The off-roading vehicles in India have started gaining a ton of popularity which escalated tremendously ever since the latest-gen Mahindra Thar was launched. The SUV commands a waiting period of almost a year in some cities. The Ford Endeavour is another such off-roading vehicle that is extremely popular. However, here it gets stuck in water during a river crossing. Let us take a look at the incident in detail.
Ford Endeavour Water Crossing Off-Roading
The other vehicles got through the water crossing relatively easily. The Mahindra Scorpio (4×2) got stuck and had to be pulled out. The same fate awaited a Mahindra Thar which was also using the 4×2 mode only. It was also towed out of the water. When the turn of the Endeavour came, the driver went to the deeper side of the river which was too deep. As a result, the left side of the SUV got inundated in the water. The water level reached the window height. The water started entering the cabin. It was not long before the water started filling the driver’s side and boot. The tow hook was tied to the SUV somehow and after a lot of effort, the SUV was finally recovered from the water. The video shows the water coming out after the revival of the SUV. This is an incident that highlights the importance of staying patient during such a situation and also not to try something like this in the first place unless it is extremely important.
The Endeavour has been discontinued in India along with all the other Ford vehicles after the company stopped manufacturing here. 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. There might be some discount on the SUV for stock clearance.
