2019 Ford Endeavour revealed ahead of official launch on February 22

first_imgFord Endeavour facelift is all set to be introduced in India on February 22. Ahead of the launch, the company has officially revealed the 2019 version of the premium SUV. It will take on the likes of Toyota Fortuner and Mahindra Alturas G4.There were already rumours that the front portion of the 2019 Endeavour will get some tweaks and these have been justified by the minor cosmetic changes in the facelift in the form of a refurbished grille and bumper. Instead of the expected 20-inch alloy wheels, the SUV will sport 18-inch ones. On the inside, the company has given the vehicle more luxurious feel with fresh upholstery. It also gets keyless entry and a smart boot opening system.Presently, Ford Endeavour gets two diesel powertrain options — a 2.2-litre TDCi engine churning out 160 PS of power and 385 Nm of torque and a 3.2-litre TDCi mill good for 200 PS of power and 470 Nm of torque. Both the motors are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.The outgoing Endeavour is available in three variants — 2.2-litre 4X2 AT Trend, 2.2-litre 4X2 AT Titanium and 3.2-litre 4X4 AT Titanium. While Trend is priced at Rs 26.82 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), 4X2 Titanium comes in at Rs 31.07 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The top-end 4X4 Titanium costs Rs 33.31 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).The 2019 Endeavour will not have the Trend variant. It will only come in two trims — Titanium and Titanium+. The facelift will be powered by the same engines that are offered on the outgoing variant. One major update in the facelift is that the 2.2-litre variant will now be available with a manual gearbox, which was earlier discontinued in this model.advertisementFord has not revealed the prices of the 2019 Endeavour. While Fortuner is priced between Rs 27.58 lakh and Rs 33.28 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), Alturas G4 costs Rs 26.95 lakh and Rs 29.95 lakh (ex-showroom, pan-India). Keeping the prices of these two SUVs in mind, one can imagine that Endeavour facelift will be offered at a very competitive cost.ALSO READ | Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza: Five reasons why the compact SUV is popular among the buyersALSO READ | Skoda offers six-year warranty under Shield Plus initiative, applicable on Octavia and other modelsALSO READ | Hero MotoCorp installs combined braking system in Splendor+ and HF Deluxe i3Slast_img read more
