Ford India is ready to launch the facelifted Endeavour in the Indian market. Sources reveal to us that the price reveal for the Endeavour facelift is probably going to occur on February 22, 2019. Bookings for the facelifted Endeavour have initiated informally at most dealerships, with the booking sum set at Rs 1 lakh. Deliveries of Endeavour will initiate only after the official value declaration by the company.
Good news is that Ford will bring back the 2.2-litre engine variant mated to 6-speed manual gearbox along with all-wheel drive system. This decision will help Ford cater to those customers that aspire Endeavour 4×4 with a price tag that fits their pocket. Also, Ford will make push-button start and power boot lid feature operable by foot, a standard feature in all Endeavour models.
The new model is expected to get newly designed headlamps with longer LED DRLs, a new front grille, 20-inch alloy wheels and new fog lamp enclosure with silver cladding on the lower half of the front bumper. Though, the facelift model retains dual-tone dashboard and interiors, we can expect the new model to come with premium upholstery along with infotainment system being upgraded to Ford SYNC 3.
The mighty 3.2-litre diesel engine will sit in the top-spec variant mated to 6-speed automatic transmission system delivering power to all fours just as the current model. It is also speculated that the lower variant might be offered with a 2.0-litre 180bhp turbocharged diesel option.
This facelift will lock its horns with the likes of Toyota Fortuner, newly launched Mahindra Alturas G4 and other SUVs in this price bracket.
