The next generation Ford Endeavour SUV will likely be launched in India by 2014. We had earlier reported that the Endeavour will be based on the 2012 Ford Ranger pick-up that was showcased at the Sydney Motor Show last year. Now there is a rendering of the upcoming Endeavour!
The new Ford Endeavour is expected to come with a refreshed front grille and will be inline with Ford’s new design language.
The Ranger pick up on which the new Endeavour will be based is a masculine looking SUV and the Endeavour will look a lot like it. The Ranger comes with large 19 inch wheels and flared wheel arches which will be carried over to the new Endeavour. It will likely have similar ground clearance making it better suited for off-roading. Also read: Ford Endeavour 3.0-litre 4×2 AT road test
