Ford has officially left the Indian market, but there are still a considerable number of customers who continue to drive Fords. Although the manufacturer has left the Indian market, there are still some who adore the brand. The Ford Endeavour was the flagship model from the manufacturer, and as it was an international product, there were many modification options available for it. One of the recent trends among Endeavour owners is to convert the SUV to look like a Raptor. Here, we have a video in which a 2018 model Endeavour has been neatly modified with an aftermarket Raptor body kit.
The video has been uploaded by Onroad Bodyshop on their YouTube channel. In this video, the Ford Endeavour had been involved in an accident, and the front left headlamp, bumper, and fender were damaged. The SUV had come to the workshop for repairs, and the owner decided to get a makeover. He went ahead with the F-150 Raptor look. The team soon started working on the car, and they removed the damaged panels. The front fender, bumper, and headlamps were all removed.

In order to install the new Raptor kit, the stock bonnet of the SUV was also removed, as was the grille. Once all the panels were removed, they started mending the metal panels that were slightly damaged in the accident. They used an electric jack to straighten the mangled metal pieces. Once that was done, they started installing the new panels. The stock bumper was replaced with a Raptor-style off-road spec unit. The car’s bonnet has also been changed, giving it a muscular-looking appearance and a fender that gives it a squarish look.
The stock headlamps were also replaced with Raptor headlamp units, which come with LED projector lamps with dual-function LED DRLs. A set of LED DRLs can also be seen on the new bumper. Moving to the side profile, the stock 18-inch wheels on the Endeavour were replaced with 20-inch Lenso alloy wheels. The car’s footboard was removed, and a new retractable footboard was installed. The ORVMs and door handles were all painted black. As we move to the rear, the SUV gets a cladding on the rear fender, which increases the overall width of the SUV to compensate for the wide-body look from the front. The original tail lamps on this Endeavour were also replaced with aftermarket LED units.
There is also a roof-mounted spoiler. As part of the conversion, the entire SUV was painted black in a paint booth. The finished product looks excellent, and the customer was happy with the results. The conversion kit had completely changed the look of the SUV, making it look more aggressive and butch than before. The Ford Endeavour seen here was the 3.2-liter turbocharged diesel engine version, which came with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The manufacturer discontinued this engine as part of the BS6 emission norms and now offers a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Ford has launched the new-generation Endeavour internationally, but it will not come to India as the brand no longer operates there.
