Ford has launched the new 2019 updated Endeavour SUV in the car market of India with a starting price of Rs. 28.19 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). The new 2019 Ford Endeavour premium full-sized SUV comes with styling and features updates both on the outside and the inside of the vehicle. More interestingly, despite the several updates the Endeavour lineup doesn’t up with any price hike, rather comes with reduced pricing than the previous model.
While the price range of the newly launched Ford Endeavour facelift starts with the 2.2 litre Titanium manual model at Rs. 28.19 lakhs,the 2.2-litre Titanium+ AT comes with a price tag of Rs. 30.60 lakhs. The top of the range 3.2 litre Titanium+ AT has been priced at Rs. 32.97 lakhs (all prices, ex-showroom Delhi).
The American auto major has also revised and trimmed the Endeavour’s lineup even further. The Endeavour that used to have an extensive variant lineup some years back was trimmed by its maker to only 3 trim levels. And now, the 2019 updated model of the 7-seater premium SUV is available in only two trim levels - Titanium and Titanium+ variants, as Ford India has discontinued the base Trend trim in the refreshed model.
When the exterior styling updates are concerned, the Ford Endeavour facelift flaunts a redesigned front radiator grille with a different chrome finish. The SUV’s headlights come with smoked effect, while the front bumper has been also slightly updated for a more aggressive visual appeal. The side profile remains the same, excepting new 18 inch alloy wheels. The rear façade of the vehicle also gets mild update with its tail lights receiving new LED inserts. The premium SUV model has also received a new exterior paint shade - Diffuser Silver, but this replaces the earlier Smoke Grey colour option.
Ford has also updated the safety equipments of the 2019 Endeavour to up the safety quotient of the vehicle. The SUV comes braced with 6 airbags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), stability control, Hill Start Assist and much more that one can expect from a premium SUV. The top-end Titanium+ gets premium features like semi-automatic parallel park assist system, front parking sensors, 8-way adjustable power driver’s seat, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, panoramic sunroof and much more. Moreover, the Ford Endeavour is the only model in its own class to come with Hands-Free Power Lift Gate, which allows hassle free opening of the SUVs tailgate just with a motion of the foot.
The 2019 updated Endeavour continues to get powered by the same 2.2 litre and 3.2 litre diesel engine options without any changes. The 2.2L unit is good to generate 158 bhp of power and 385 Nm of torque, while the 3.2L oil burner belts out 197 bhp and 470 Nm.
The bigger engine is only available on the Titanium+ model. It comes mated exclusively to a 6 speed automatic transmission and with AWD system as standard. On the other hand, the smaller engine is available on both the variants and comes paired to a choice of a 6 speed manual and a 6 speed automatic transmission.
The Ford Endeavour locks its horns with the segment ruler Toyota Fortuner, Isuzu MU-X and the all-new Mahindra Alturas G4 in the Indian premium 7-seater SUV
