Ford introduced its true-blue SUV, the all-new Ford Endeavour in January 2016. Since launch, customers have been queuing up at Ford showrooms to own this sophisticated and extremely capable SUV. It has helped Ford make a fitting comeback in the premium SUV space and establish itself as a leader in the segment. Let’s explore what makes the premium SUV truly ‘Engineered for Extraordinary’.
SMART & FUNCTIONAL DESIGN
SUVs have traditionally been all about rugged exterior looks and an imposing stance. The all-new Ford Endeavour is changing that. It has been designed from the ground up to delight SUV lovers with its imposing yet extremely functional design. Step in and the all- new Ford Endeavour welcomes occupants to a plush, modern and premium interior environment, usually expected in luxury vehicles.It features more than 30 clever storage spaces and a flexible seating and cargo arrangements – including first-in-class power-fold third- row that folds flat at the touch of a button. Ford Endeavour uses Active Noise Cancellation, a technology used in noise cancelling headphones, to keep unwanted sounds out of the cabin.
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FOR SMARTER, SAFER DRIVE
The Endeavour comes packed with an array of intuitive and practical technologies making it the smartest vehicle in its segment. It offers Ford’s globally-acclaimed in-car technology SYNC 2, featuring an eight-inch coloured touchscreen that enables users to safely connect their mobile phones even on the move.
Several active and passive safety features, including up to seven airbags and segment-first knee airbag, offer an enhanced level of protection. Roll Stability Control and the Electronic Stability Program ensure a confident, reassuring driving experience. The Semi-Auto Parallel Park Assist, which can be activated at the touch of a button, automatically locates parking spots and parks the Endeavour into that spot.
POWER PACKED & EFFICIENT
The Endeavour’s impressive capabilities are made possible with two diesel engines from Ford’s globally-proven Duratorq family, mated to durable and efficient six-speed automatic or manual transmissions. The 3.2-liter Duratorq five-cylinder TDCi diesel engine with 200PS of power delivers a fuel efficiency of 10.91 kmpl. The 2.2-liter engine, proven to deliver a fuel economy of 14.12 kmpl, is the fuel economy leader in its segment. The automatic transmission delivers a fuel economy of 12.62 kmpl.
RUGGED, REFINED & FUN TO DRIVE
Featuring a clever four-wheel drive system, a first-in-segment Terrain Management System, impressive water-wading capacity of 800 mm and outstanding 225 mm of ground clearance make the all-new Endeavour well-suited to conquer almost everything, on- or off-road.
An advanced Terrain Management System allows drivers to choose from four preset modes – Normal, Snow/Mud/ Grass, Sand and Rock. These modes alter the vehicle’s throttle response, transmission and traction control to confidently tackle any situation. For extreme off-road environments, drivers can manually lock the transfer case in low-range four-wheel drive mode for increased control.
