Ford Discontinues Manual Variants Of Endeavour
However, both engine options are still up for grabs
Ford India has made quite a lot of changes to the Endeavour’s recipe since its launch in January 2016. The company revised its prices on a couple of occasions and also axed the base variant later in 2016. Now, though, in less than 18 months of its existence, Ford has discontinued all the manual variants of the Endeavour. With this revision, only three variants remain on sale. However, both the engine options are still in the mix.
Let’s uncomplicate it for you all. The three variants that remain on sale are the 2.2l 4x2 AT Trend, 2.2l 4x2 AT Titanium and 3.2l 4x4 AT Titanium. While the 2.2-litre diesel engine is tuned to produce 160PS of power and 385Nm of torque, the bigger 3.2-litre diesel motor pumps out 200PS of power and 470Nm of torque. Both the engines are now available with only the six-speed automatic transmission. If you want 4x4, only the range-topping variant will fulfil your needs.
Ford has priced the Endeavour, which also came on top in our comparison test against the Toyota Fortuner, quiet competitively. While the Trend and Titanium variants that house the smaller engine are priced at Rs 25.49 lakh and Rs 28.62 lakh respectively, the 3.2l Titanium has an asking price of Rs 31.5 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom Delhi).
The Ford Endeavour has a wide variety of rivals. Everything from the Hyundai Santa Fe and Volkswagen Tiguan, both of which are regarded as soft off-roaders, to hardcore SUVs like the Isuzu MU-X, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and the Toyota Fortuner all eat into its market share. Soon, two more models will join the same list of SUVs - the Mitsubishi Outlander (expected in 2018) and the Skoda Kodiaq (launch in September 2017).
