2016 Ford Endeavour
The Mid-Size sporty utility segment of India may not be crowded but it surely has some worthy competitors in it take Ford for instance who is one of the major players of this game launched their Endeavour SUV almost 10 years ago in India which really became popular amongst the crowd initially because of its big brawny size, spacious and practical interiors and those powerful diesel engines under the hood. As time passed its fame and glory started to fade away, now there can actually be two major reasons behind it, the Japanese manufacturer Toyota introduced their Fortuner SUV already in this segment which also possessed almost the same characteristics that the other SUV had or with the introduction of more premium entry level vehicles from renowned manufacturers like Audi, BMW and Mercedes their customers have actually moved to a totally different segment.
After Ford saw the falling sales figures there were actually two things that Ford could have done, either they could completely let go or try to revive the Endeavour SUV which is definitely a worthy vehicle in this segment.
During August last year the Blue oval showcased an Everest Concept (Endeavour is also known as Everest in other International markets) SUV in Australia which actually indicated that their next generation Endeavour SUV will be coming soon and look exactly the same as the concept because Ford has a reputation of not messing too much with the overall styling of the concept when they turn it into a final production ready vehicle, we have seen that in time of the Ford Ecosport too.
Ford recently unveiled their production ready Endeavour and believe it or not the production variant looks exactly the same as the Everest concept which was showcased a year ago in Australia. Ford claims that their new Everest SUV seamlessly blends rugged offroad capability with exceptional ride quality and also dynamic handling, it also gets a new sculpted chiseled exterior styling along with many technological updates which makes it an all rounder. The new SUV will be launched on January 15th 2016 and it will made available with 2.2 Litre diesel as well as a powerful 3.2 Litre diesel paired either to a manual or automatic transmission.
