The Ford Endeavour is the American automotive giant’s largest vehicle currently on sale in India. With its muscular design, the SUV is quite an intimidating sight when you spot in your rearview mirrors. However, Hyderabad-based Sunblaze Carz decided to up the intimidation factor by giving the Endeavour a matte black wrap and a few custom modifications.
The modified Ford Endeavour from Sunblaze Carz may look stealthy because of its matte black wrap but there is nothing stealthy about that massive grille that sits up front. The blacked-out grille plays host to what appears to be the iconic Ford Mustang emblem set at an angle. Also up front, the silver section of the front bumper and the bash plate have been blacked out as well, adding to the stealthy look of the SUV.
At the sides, the Ford’s massive wheel arches play host to blacked-out alloy wheels behind which sit the callipers painted in a bright red colour. At the rear, the taillights are totally blacked out as is the bottom section of the rear bumper which plays host to the reflectors. Also, providing some contrast at the rear are what appear to be reflectors on either side of the rear windscreen.
The Ford Endeavour is a 7 seater SUV that has a massive presence both on the tarmac and off-road. The Endeavour measures in at 4,892mm long, 1,860mm wide and stands 1,837mm tall. The Endeavour has a 2,850mm long wheelbase and offers 225mm of ground clearance. Ford offers the Endeavour with two different diesel engine options in India – a 2.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder with 158bhp and 385Nm of torque on offer and a 3.2-litre turbocharged five-cylinder unit with 197bhp and 470Nm of torque. Both engines are paired to a 6-speed automatic gearbox and while the 2.2-litre comes with both two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive, the Endeavour with the 3.2-litre engine is only available as a 4×4 SUV.
While we are not sure which of the two engines is fitted onto the customized Ford Endeavour from Sunblaze CarZ as all the chrome on the car except for the Mustang badge has been removed, we sure wouldn’t want to see it baring down on us if it was fitted with a set of police lights.
