Name: Ford New Endeavour
Body Type: SUV
Price: Rs. 16-22 lacs.
After its celebrated mini-SUV EcoSport having won many hearts this yr, here is another larger SUV i.e. 7 seater, which Ford will launch most probably in the mid of 2014 or in early 2015 in India. The expected price range of the car is Rs. 16-22 lakhs. Ford New Endeavour derives its base from the new Ford Ranger particularly noticeable from its style and dynamics.
Exteriors: As per the pics revealed by Ford, the heighted front bonnet is quite dominating as far as looks are concerned. At the end of the bonnet lies the 3 chrome bars grill, with the 2nd bar holding the brand signature on it. The headlamps occupying the either side of the grill are just regular style. Right below that is the protruded bumper having a black-mesh air intake grill and nice fog lamps on either side, placed safely inside the circular portion. Proceeding on the sides you will find 16” high light in weight alloy wheels with 12 flower-petal shaped spokes on it. There are body coloured ORVMs with turn indicators on them and a small triangular grill right below it. Also the side aprons add to the macho looks of the car. The tail lamps are upright rather than elongated, giving a simple but bold look. The top has roof railings, rear has a spoiler and rain wiper too. There are dual chrome built exhaust pipes at the rear and red LED lights just above it. The car has a highly aerodynamic structure with appropriate bulges over the wheels on the sides and rear. Kudos to the Ford’s mechanical engg. for that!! The car stands high and thus offers optimum ground clearance offering smooth drive on humps and bumps.
Specifications: It is expected that the car will come in 2.5 l and 3.0 l powerful diesel engines. The vehicle will also feature automatic transmission probably with a 6 speed gearbox. The SUV will now have better suspension, with replacement of the coil-spring suspension to the strut at the front. That is the only info about specification available right now. The power and torque figures are likely to increase by marginal amounts.
Interiors: There will be a new steering, instrument panel and dashboard to welcome you. The entertainment section will be the same with integrated CD/mp3 player, FM, coloured LCD screen with multiple options like Bluetooth, navigation, TV, video, iPod, USB and DVD. So get absorbed into the world of entertainment while you are on a escapade on this royal SUV Ford new Endeavour. To keep you cool, there is a decent climate control dual Air conditioner with HVAC i.e. Heating, Ventilation and A/C. And guess what! There are also rear A/C vents to your advantage.
Safety Section: The car like its predecessor will have Anti-lock Braking System coupled with Electronic Brake force distribution preventing wheel locking in case of sudden/hard braking or slippery roads. Others include front airbags, though this time it is expected that it has curtain airbags as well. Seat belt reminder, pretensioners, driver seat height adjustability, central locking, Remote keyless Entry are among others. A Ford-unique anti-theft alarm will also be there to prevent burglary of your prized possessions.
Well the improved suspension and steering will definitely bring smiles on the faces of Ford Endeavour lovers. And bet me, any female will fall for its looks!! Dudes its time to impress your ladies with this upcoming macho Vehicle.
