Ford will launch the 2016 Endeavour in India this year and it will come with a whole host of features, powerful engines and robust styling.
The 2016 Ford Endeavour has gone on sale in Thailand and we tell you each and everything that you need to know about this full-sized SUV. The exteriors of the Endeavour look really nice and the vehicle packs a punch when it comes to rugged styling. The front is dominated by a massive grille and the bumper comes with a silver skid-plate that also houses the fog lamps. The Endeavour has a high waistline at the side and the beefy tyres just add to the rugged appeal. The rear is again very good looking with a chrome garnish on the tail-gate and silver skid plate on the bumper.
The next generation Ford Endeavour comes with Ford’s SYNC 2 infotainment system which has functions like voice commands, 8-inch touchscreen and a 10-speaker audio system with in-built subwoofer too. The SUV is loaded with features like Curve Control which helps the vehicle remain composed while negotiating corners at speed and Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert. Other features include Roll Stability Control and Park Assist. The Terrain Management System comes with four modes to choose from – Normal, Snow/Gravel/Grass, Sand and Rock. The Endeavour comes with a body-on-frame chassis and it will be offered in rear-wheel-drive and 4WD variants.
Powering the 2016 Ford Endeavour are two diesel engines. The 2.2-litre four-cylinder TDCI unit gives out 160 PS of power and 385 Nm of torque and the 3.2-litre five-cylinder engine belts out 200 PS of power and 470 Nm of torque. The SUV gets an active transfer case with Torque On Demand and its ground clearance is 225 mm. It also has a water-wading capability of 800 mm. The 2016 Ford Endeavour will be launched in India during the festive season of 2015 and it will be priced from Rs. 25 lakhs.
