You should choose the 4x2 drivetrain option of the Endeavour only if you are certain of using it on normal roads only, and don’t have off-roading plans at all. However, it is definitely more capable than normal front-wheel drive cars or soft roaders, as it is a rear-wheel drive SUV with good ground clearance. 

Nevertheless, as the Endeavour is a big premium SUV, we would definitely recommend going for the 4x4 drivetrain option, if it’s price suits your budget. Speaking straightforwardly -- if you don’t get proper off-road capability with the Endeavour, then why go for this premium SUV anyway? 

When fuel efficiency is concerned, the Endeavour’s claimed fuel efficiency is lesser than its rival Toyota Fortuner.

What Are The Dimensions Of The 2020 Ford Endeavour?

The Endeavour is a D2 segment SUV, and its length is around 5m. It is longer, wider and taller than its arch rival Fortuner, but is smaller than the Gloster. The Endeavour also has a longer wheelbase compared to the Fortuner, but shorter than the Gloster’s. Its ground clearance of 225mm is comparable with the Fortuner’s and better than the Gloster’s. The Endeavour offers 18-inch wheels with all its variants.

Going by the feature list, it is very evident that even the entry-level variant of the Endeavour is pretty heavily loaded with features. However, considering the fact that its on-road price is over Rs 30 lakh, we think it should have also included features like auto-dimming IRVM, telescopic steering, auto-folding ORVMs and cooled glovebox. 

Titanium+ Variant 

The Endeavour Titanium+ 4x2 is Rs 2.76 lakh more expensive than the Titanium 4x2 variant. For this additional premium, this variant offers some added safety, functional and style related features.

The added safety features of this variant include driver knee airbag, front parking sensors and auto-dimming IRVM. There are also features like - powered passenger seat and electrically foldable third row. There’s also park assist which is a sort of hands-free parking that is able to detect a parking space and also automatically control the steering wheel. Added style features include soft-touch materials on the dashboard and a panoramic sunroof.

According to our internal data, the panoramic sunroof and parallel park assist are both expensive features, but not extremely useful. If you are considering buying the 4x2 version of the Endeavour, then we suggest that you go for the base Titanium variant, despite the fact that the Titanium+ does justify its price increment with its value added features.

The Endeavour Titanium+ 4x4 comes for an additional premium of Rs 1.70 lakh over the 4x2 setup. The 4x4 drivetrain offers terrain modes like - Rock, Snow and Sand. It also comes with a lower ratio and rear differential lock to offer off-roading capability.

The 4x4 Endeavour also offers the safety of hill descent control, which automatically maintains the car’s speed while going downhill, and you will not have to press the brake. 

According to our internal data, the added premium of Rs 1.7 lakh for the off-roading capability of the Endeavour is completely justified. Thus, we think even if you are value conscious, choosing the 4x4 Titanium+ variant over the 4x2 Titanium is sensible. 

Sport Variant

The Ford Endeavour Sport variant adds Rs 65,000 to the price tag over the Titanium+ variant. The Sport variant adds only some style related features on the outside of the SUV.

Although the badging of ‘Sport’ deserves some performance upgrades, which the Endeavour Sport does not offer, just as a cosmetically updated variant also, it should have included an all-black interior for a sportier and more exclusive visual appeal. 

As the Sport variant offers only visual updates, it fully depends on you whether or not you wish to buy this variant over the others in the Endeavour range. According to us, these updates are slightly on the expensive side. 

Which Variant Of The Ford Endeavour Should You Buy?

If for any reason, you are still considering the 4x2 drivetrain of the Endeavour, then we would recommend that you go for the entry-level Titanium variant and save some money. 

However, we would always suggest you choose the 4x4 drivetrain instead, as  it offers the full capability of this SUV -- that’s essentially why people go for an SUV of this size. 

Thankfully, the additional amount that Ford is charging for the Titanium+ with the 4x4 drivetrain and extra features, is reasonable. Thus, the Endeavour Titanium+ 4x4 offers good value for money and is our top recommended variant.
