Ford Endeavour is currently American car manufacturer’s flagship SUV in India. It is a proper full size SUV that competes with cars like MG Gloster, Toyota Fortuner, Isuzu MU-X in the segment. Recently, reports had surfaced online that Ford is working on next-generation Endeavour and the same was also spotted testing abroad. On the basis of those leaked images, we had also done a story that showed how the upcoming SUV from Ford might look like. We now have reports that share more details about the upcoming Ford Everest or Endeavour along with a new digital render.
Details regarding the engine of the upcoming Ford Endeavour has now been leaked online. As per reports, the next-gen Ford Everest or Endeavour will be powered by a V6 turbo diesel engine. It would be the same engine that is being used in Ford’s F-series pick-up truck internationally. Ford will be offering next-gen Endeavour with two engine options. There will be a 2.0 litre twin turbo diesel engine and a 3.0 litre V6 turbo diesel engine. This would make Ford Endeavour one of the most powerful SUV in the segment. The V6 engine is expected to generate 254 Bhp and 600 Nm of peak torque.
It is highly unlikely that the 3.0 litre V6 would be available in India. There is a possibility that Ford might offer 2.0 litre turbo diesel for lower variants and 2.0 litre twin turbo diesel for higher variants. The main reason why Ford might do it that way is to keep the cost in check. The 3.0 litre V6 turbo diesel engine will also be mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The new render that has been shared online is actually based on the current generation Endeavour or Everest. The front gets a very different looking design. It is actually a design that has been derived from Ford’s F-series pick-up trucks. It gets a muscular and bulky look at the front like many other American SUVs and trucks. The side profile of the render is actually looking similar to the current generation Endeavour. This is just a speculative render and there a high possibilities that the original product might look entirely different from these render images.
In terms of features, Ford is expected to add more features to this SUV. According to reports, Ford will be offering blind zone warning, rear cross traffic warning, autonomous emergency braking and many other features with the SUV. Ford might also offer features like digital instrument cluster, large touchscreen infotainment screen, automatic climate control, redesigned cabin with leather wrapped seats with electrical adjustments and so on. Just like the current generation Endeavour, the upcoming Endeavour will also offer 4×4.
Ford has not announced anything on when they will be launching the all-new Endeavour in the market. Our guess however is that it will be launched in the international market next year. The current generation Ford Endeavour is available with a 2.0 litre turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine. The engine generates 167 bhp and 420 Nm of peak torque. It is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission as standard.
