Ford India has been teasing us with the images of a special sport edition of Endeavour for couple of weeks. They have now officially launched the new Endeavour Sport in the market at Rs 35.10 lakh, ex-showroom. Ford Endeavour is one of the popular full size SUV in the market and competes with SUVs like Toyota Fortuner, Isuzu MU-X, Mahindra Alturas G4 in the segment. Ford has made dozens of changes to the exterior of Endeavour Sport that differentiate it from regular Endeavour. The all new Endeavour Sport edition is going to be the new top-end trim of this flagship SUV.
In terms of design, Ford has not changed much. They have done cosmetic changes to the Endeavour that enhances the butch look. The all-new ebony black front grille looks even more domineering and will make people turn their heads. The front fender as well as the front and rear bumper skid plates get an ebony black treatment to add to the SUVs imposing stance. All the chrome or brushed silver elements that were seen in the regular Endeavour have been completely removed.
Talking about the new Endeavour Sport, Vinay Raina, executive director of marketing, sales & service at Ford India said, “Ford Endeavour Sport in black makes a bold statement – whether it is your regular commute during the week or your off-road adventure during the weekend. We are thankful to our customers for their faith in Ford Endeavour & hope the special edition Sport will strengthen it further.”
