We reported earlier that Ford India will launch the next generation Ford Endeavour in the Indian car market in 2015-16. According to AutoIndustriya, the new 2015 Endeavour would be revealed on November 14, 2014. Ford has already showcased the pre-production concept of the SUV at the 2014 Bangkok Motor Show.
The next Endeavour is expected to be more premium than the previous model. The mechanics of the car have been tweaked to provide improved driving experience. The SUV carries the Ford Edge design philosophy and looks quite identical to the Everest concept. The vehicle features sculpted design, hexagonal front grille, and large headlamps.
The 2015 Ford Endeavour SUV is based on the ladder frame chassis, which provides toughness and off-road capability. Its rear suspension setup features an independent layout instead of the leaf spring layout on the outgoing model. Another edition would be a Terrain Response four wheel drive system. Inside the cabin, the new SUV is expected to feature a premium cabin inspired by the F-150. It will sport an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and Ford’s SYNC2 multimedia setup.
The new model, reportedly, will get two engine options- a 2.2-litre 4-cylinder diesel and a 3.2-litre inline-5 cylinder diesel engine. The Indian-spec model; however, expected to get the same 2.5-litre and 3.0-litre diesel engines from current model. The transmission is expected to be six-speed unit instead of the current 5-speed.
