Ford Endeavour has been one of the best full-size SUV in the Indian market that you can buy. Since its launch, it has given a very stiff competition to the Toyota Fortuner. Ford recently launched an update to the Endeavour. So, now it came with a new 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine that produces 170 PS of max power and a peak torque output of 420 Nm. The highlight of the new Endeveaour is its new 10-speed automatic gearbox which came with SelectShift technology. Due to this, the transmission can change several gears at a time. However, many people were not happy with the update as with the update Ford’s 3.2-litre diesel engine got discontinued. The engine was known for its punchy acceleration and torquey nature. It had five-cylinders which made it unique and it made 197 bhp of max power and a peak torque output of 450 Nm. This model was the flagship for the Ford in India. It was available with a 4×4 system and with a 2-wheel drive drivetrain also. Unfortunately, because of the stricter emission norms, Ford had to kill this engine. The only way that you can get the 3.2 now is to buy a pre-owned Endeavour, which is equipped with a 3.2-litre diesel engine. Fortunately, we have found one of these legends in the pre-owned market. We have found this video on YouTube which was uploaded by Baba Luxury Car.
The SUV competes with the Toyota Fortuner, Isuzu MU-X, Mahindra Alturas G4 and the MG Gloster. Here we have the top-end Titanium variant. The SUV here, which is on sale is Black in colour and gets a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. It is powered by the 3.2-litre turbo diesel engine.
In terms of equipment list, it gets a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, projector headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lamps, semi-digital instrument cluster, automatic parking, front and rear parking sensors, auto-folding outside rearview mirrors, alloy wheels, chrome door handles with request sensors, rear defogger, rear parking camera, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, leather upholstery and rear AC vents. The soft-touch leather dashboard with stitching does give a premium effect to the cabin. It also gets an aftermarket grille, which spells out “FORD” in Blue colour and it also gets window visors. The SUV has been repainted from the sides. So, there are no scratches on the body. Although the reason has not been specified in the video. Dual-tone interior and electric panoramic sunroof give an airy feel to the cabin.
The vehicle has been registered in Gujrat and it is a 2018 model. The seller is demanding Rs. 22.75 lakhs and the SUV has covered 59,000 km. It seems like a pretty good deal considering that the Endeavour is just 2 years old and comes with the 3.2-litre engine which is more powerful than the current 2.0-litre diesel engine. When compared this pre-owned one cost Rs. 15 lakhs less than a new Endeavour while offering most of its features. However, the question remains why the SUV was repainted in such a short span of its life.
