If the full-size Ford SUV were to return, here’s how it (in its Australian spec) compares to its age-old Toyota rival

Ford Endeavour vs Toyota Fortuner: Specifications Compared

There is a lot of active speculation around the return of the Ford Endeavour to India, thanks to certain patent filings and spy shots. While there is no official comment to add some legitimacy to the rumours, there is certainly a lot of interest around the full-size American SUV. If we assume that the Ford Endeavour might actually come back, it would be resuming its rivalry with India’s top-selling big SUV, the Toyota Fortuner. Let’s see how the current generation of the SUV, known in international markets as the Ford Everest, compares to the Toyota model:

* Dimensions of Australian-spec Ford Everest have been taken

The Ford Endeavour is ahead of the Fortuner in all parameters. It is larger, taller, wider and has more ground clearance as well. This not only gives it an edge when it comes to off-roading, but being longer and wider also allows it to have more room inside the cabin, making it slightly more spacious.

In the Australian market, the Endeavour (Everest) is available with two diesel engine options, both paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. A four-wheel-drive (4WD) setup is available with both the engines. The smaller engine matches the Fortuner’s diesel unit in performance, while the bigger V6 Ford diesel engine has an extra 46 PS and 100 Nm to offer.

The Toyota Fortuner on the other hand gets the choice of both petrol and diesel engines with both manual and automatic transmissions, but it only gets a 4WD setup with its diesel engine.

Ford Everest (Endeavour)

In other international markets, Ford does offer the Endeavour (Everest) with turbo-petrol engines too, but Indian buyers would likely not be as interested in those options. Hence, we have not mentioned those engine options here.

Features

Ford Endeavour Cabin

In terms of features, the 2024 Endeavour (Australia-spec) is far ahead of the current India-spec Fortuner. It gets a 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 12.4-inch digital driver’s display, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, dual-zone climate control, wireless phone charger, ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, 10-way power adjustable driver seat with memory function, heated and ventilated front seats, and a 12-speaker B&O sound system.

Toyota Fortuner Cabin

As for the Fortuner, it only gets an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wired Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, wireless phone charger, dual-zone climate control, 11-speaker JBL sound system, and ventilated front seats. It misses out on features like a fully digital driver’s display, heated front seats, wireless connectivity, and a sunroof.

One thing to note is that the last iteration of Ford Endeavour in India was also well equipped and had features better than the Fortuner, like a powered tailgate, 8-way powered driver and front passenger seats, active noise cancellation, and a panoramic sunroof.

Safety

Ford Endeavour Touchscreen

Even in passenger safety, the Endeavour (Australia-spec) takes the lead. It comes with 9 airbags, 3-point seatbelts for all passengers, dynamic stability control (DSC), tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), auto headlamps, front and rear parking sensors, and a 360-degree camera. It also gets ADAS (advanced driver assistance system) features like adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, autonomous emergency braking, and park assist.

Toyota Fortuner Airbags

The Toyota Fortuner in India comes with 7 airbags, vehicle stability control (VSC), traction control, brake assist, and hill assist. It misses out on a 360-degree camera and does not get any ADAS features.

Price

Ex-showroom Price

Ford Endeavour (converted from AUD to INR)

Toyota Fortuner 

Rs 29.4 lakh to Rs 43.27 lakh

Rs 33.43 lakh to Rs 51.44 lakh

The prices mentioned above are for the Australian-spec Ford Everest and if it is launched in India, it will be more expensive due to the import taxes. Even if Ford went to the lengths of restarting Indian operations for local assembly, there would be added costs passed on to buyers. However, to stay in the competition, Ford will have to price the Endeavour in the same ballpark as the Fortuner, i.e., around Rs 50 lakh (ex-showroom).
