American automaker, Ford had launched the new Endeavour SUV in the Indian car market in 2014. Since the new model is 4 years old, it is set to receive a mid-life facelift not just in India but in global markets as well. Ford has already started testing the updated version of the SUV on foreign soil, where it is called Everest. Last year, the Ford Endeavour 2018 was caught testing in the Australian market and now, the vehicle has been spotted completely undisguised in Thailand. It is expected that the facelifted model will make its global debut in the second quarter of 2018, which will be followed by Ranger pick-up.
Ford is also planning to launch the Ford Endeavour 2018 model in the North American market as Bronco SUV. Mechanically, the SUV is likely to remain unchanged. It will receive subtle design changes, which are in-line with the styling of the larger SUVs like the Explorer and Expedition sold in North America. The cabin is also expected to receive subtle changes in terms of modern features and soft material touches on certain places.
The global version of the Endeavour facelift will also be equipped with automatic emergency braking (AEB) and radar based cruise control. However, the India-spec model will devoid of these high-tech features. Under the bonnet, the premium SUV will get the same set of engines – a 2.2-litre and 3.2-litre diesel.
