The Ford Endeavour is one of the oldest full size SUVs on sale in India. Also known as Everest in international markets, the first generation Endeavour was launched here in 2003, which makes it more than 15 years old. The latest generation Endeavour has a much more butch design than the model it replaces. The Endeavour is also quite popular among modifiers and we have seen some brilliant examples from around the country. Joining the long list of modified Endeavours is this yellow black example, which is more than just a visual mod. Take a look at the car below before we move onto the details of the mod job.
The Ford Endeavour is already quite a tough looking vehicle and with these modifications, it sure looks menacing to say the least. It has been modified by MKRAFT, which is a modification house from Mumbai. The exteriors have been given a boost by the energetic golden yellow and black paint scheme which screams for attention on the very first glance. The front bumper has been replaced by an off road spec unit that comes with built in LED DRLs. The front grille has been painted black which lends an air of aggressiveness to the front fascia. A snorkel has been fitted on the SUV to enhance its water wading abilities. Custom blacked out side steps are another addition made on this Endeavour.
The SUV now rides on big custom off road spec tires which are shod onto multi spoke blacked out alloys. The fenders have been beefed up to and added further to the overall look of the vehicle. The suspension system is enhanced and it is a Foamcell Pro suspension system from Ironman 4×4. Another mechanical upgrade made on this Endeavor are new powerful brake rotors which lend enhanced bite and better stopping power to the SUV.
The Ford Endeavour is available with two diesel engine options in India. The smaller one is a 2.2-litre diesel engine that produces 158 Bhp of power along with 385 Nm of torque and comes mated to an automatic transmission. The bigger 3.2-litre diesel engine churns out 197 Bhp of power along with 470 Nm of torque. It is only available in the 4X4 automatic set-up while the smaller 2.2 litre engine comes with 4X2 setup only.
Ford will launch the new facelifted Endeavour on the 22nd of this month. The facelift will bring in a couple of new features along with a host of safety tech apart from some minor tweaks on the exteriors. changes on the exteriors include a slightly redesigned front grille, revised front and rear bumpers along with new 18-inch alloys. Reports suggest that the company could equip the new model with 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine that will replace the older 2.2 litre diesel option. However, nothing is confirmed as of now. The pricing will also be bumped up a bit but expect it to remain in the ballpark of the current Endeavour.
