Talking about the newly launched BS6 Ford Endeavour, Anurag Mehrotra, President & Managing Director, Ford India, said "With 2020 Endeavour, we are offering a product that combines best of both worlds - outstanding capabilities & class-leading fuel efficiency - and thereby delivering more than SUV customers expect. With its enhanced value proposition, we are confident that the Endeavour will become the SUV of choice for several new customers."
The new 2.0-litre was first introduced in 2017 to meet Euro 6 emissions standards in the global markets, and it has been powering the Thailand-spec Ford Everest (Endeavour) ever since. While we were expecting the company introduced the engine in India last year, with the Endeavour facelift, the company said that it will bring the engine with the BS6 update, and we have finally got it. The motor is tuned to churn out 168 bhp and develop 420 Nm peak torque. The motor offers 20 per cent more low-end torque from the outgoing 2.2L TDCi engine and it's also more efficient now, and the 4X2 version offers 13.90 Kmpl, while the 4X4 version returns an average fuel efficiency of 12.4 Kmpl. Ford EcoBlue engine is also more refined and quieter with a 4-decibel reduction in idle noise.
The 2020 Ford Endeavour is also the only vehicle in India to get a 10-speed torque converter automatic transmission, which the company says reduces the gaps in available power & acceleration between gears providing smoother acceleration response. The transmission also gets Progressive Range Select or SelectShift.
Visually, the SUV looks identical to the BS4 model, however, on the features front, the SUV now also comes with the company's mobility and connectivity solution FordPass. The system offers functions like - like starting, stopping, locking or unlocking the vehicle, know remaining fuel levels & distance to empty & locating their vehicle remotely. The SUV also gets all-LED headlamps offering low and high beam provide up to 20% greater lighting penetration for enhanced night-time visibility. The SUV will continue to offer features like - Terrain Management System (TMS), SYNC 3 with 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay, A panoramic sun-roof, covering up to 50% of the roof, Semi-Auto Parallel Park Assist, push start button, hand-free power lift rear gate, and 8-way power-adjustable driver & front passenger seat.
