Ford Endeavour BaseCamp Launch Planned After Sport?
It is an accessory pack that was launched in Australia and New Zealand last year.
After the introduction of Sport Edition, it seems like the Ford Endeavour BaseCamp is in the pipeline for India launch. The American carmaker has just trademarked this nomenclature in our country.
Ford launched it as Everest BaseCamp in Australia and New Zealand last year. It is basically an off-road oriented accessories pack that boosts the rugged appeal of the SUV and enhances its capabilities to some extent.
The one that was launched internationally came with kit like nudge bar, bonnet protector, snorkel, tow bar, LED light bar, black roof-mounted carry bars, Pioneer roof platform, sunseeking awning, etc.
We might get the same features if launched in India. No other mechanical or interior changes are expected just like the global version. It is priced at around AUD $2000 (Rs. 1 lakh) premium over the regular mode in Australia.
Engine is expected to be the same 2.0-litre diesel producing 170 PS and 420 Nm of torque, mated to a 10-speed auto gearbox.
Ford recently introduced the Sport edition in India with a price tag of Rs. 35.10 lakhs (ex-showroom). It competes directly with the Toyota Fortuner TRD having sporty black embellishments on the exterior.
