FORD ENDEAVOR SPORT READY TO BE LAUNCHED NEXT WEEK IN INDIA | Automotive News | Auto Reporter
Ford India is ready to launch Endeavour Sport in India with a clear eye on the SUV's rivels in the form of Toyota Fortuner TRD, Mahindra Alturas G4, Tiguan AllSpace, and the upcoming MG Gloster.
Endeavour Sport is expected to come with a number of updates on the exterior body as well as in the cabin to give it a more muscular appeal - a key enticing factor for buyers in the segment in which the SUV competes in. Expect a new gloss black honeycomb grille with chrome slats at the front, roof rails, and all-black 18-inch alloy wheels. Black inserts on front and rear bumpers and black caps on ORVMs are also nearly certain.
The significance of using black color tones to highlight Endeavour Sport's aggressive visual presence is expected to be taken inside the cabin as well with the upholstery in this color scheme while the dash may be done in new dual-tone shades.
While it is the Sport, this Endeavour will not get any mechanical changes or updates and will continue to make use of the tried and tested 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel unit which puts out 168 bhp of max power and has a peak torque of 420 Nm. Transmission duties may be handled by a 10-speed automatic unit which would be available in both the 4X4 and 4X2 variants.
Endeavor currently starts at a price point of ₹29.99 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to ₹34.45 lakh (ex-showroom). Endeavour Sport could be pricier by around ₹50,000.
