Ford Endeavour is one of the most popular full size SUV on sale in the market. It competes with cars like Toyota Fortuner, MG Gloster and Isuzu MU-X in the segment. Ford Endeavour is known for its looks and off-road capabilities in the market. It is a proven SUV that is already on sale in international markets under different names.
We have seen several videos online where the old and new Endeavour SUVs can be seen handling off-road conditions effortlessly. It is also a popular SUV in the modification circle and several wildly modified examples of the same are also available in the market. Here we have an Endeavour with a very unique type of modification. It gets massive 26 inch alloy wheels.
The video has been uploaded by Dev Vlogs on his YouTube channel. The Endeavour seen here is most probably the pre-facelift version. The modification seen here is one of a kind and it is probably the only Endeavour in the country to get such massive alloys. The owner has completely blacked out the bumpers and skid plate to give it neat black look. The chrome on the front grille, ORVMs and door handles have been retained.

The reason for that is the massive 26 inch alloy wheel. the wheel has a flower like design with chrome finish to it. The massive alloy wheel, low profile tyre give it an American SUV like look. Some might find the the low profile tyres and the massive alloy wheels appealing but, personally we feel that, it was an overkill. This modification will also ruin the ride quality and handling capabilities of the vehicle.
Such modifications are actually great for show vehicles as it affects the off-road abilities of the Endeavour. The owner cannot drive the SUV at high speeds on these wheels because of the above mentioned issued. It is not know whether the owner has installed spacers for getting these massive wheels installed. Not much information is available regarding the modifications done on this SUV. The SUV does look neat but, it is not the best that we have seen so far.
Ford Endeavour is currently the flagship model from the brand. Last year, Ford launched BS6 version of Endeavour in the market. The SUV was earlier available with a 2.2 litre turbo diesel and a 3.2 litre turbo diesel engine option. The updated BS6 version of the SUV now comes with a 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generates 167 Bhp and 420 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Ford is also working on a brand new Endeavour and the same was spotted testing abroad recently. The SUV is probably going to have a lot more squarish or sharp design language with headlamps inspired from their popular F-series pickup truck. The upcoming Endeavour is expected to get a much more powerful engine. It might be available with a 2.0 litre twin turbocharged diesel engine that generates a maximum of 217 Ps and 500 Nm of peak torque. This would make the Endeavour at par with some of its competition like Toyota Fortuner in the segment.
