Ford Endeavour base variant discontinued, prices start at INR 33.80 lakh

Written by Nayak

Ford has discontinued the base variant of the Endeavour, which is the Titanium 4×2 trim. The range starts with the Titanium+ 4×2 variant, a sticker price of INR 33.80 lakh (ex-showroom). The base trim, Titanium 4×2, was almost four lakhs lesser than the Titanium+ trim. And it missed out on some features like a panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, folding third-row seat, 8-way electrical adjustable passenger seat and one-touch up/down windows. The trim missed out on some important safety features as well. This includes semi-auto parallel park assist, front parking sensor, driver knee airbag and electronic IRVM.

Back in December 2020, Ford had deleted some features from the Endeavour. The active noise cancellation and aux heater were removed from the entire product range. Meanwhile, the 4×2 Titanium trim missed on the 10-speaker setup and front door steel scuff plate. But, now Ford has decided to completely phase out the base, Titanium 4×2 trim from the lineup.

Ford Endeavour Engine Stats

The SUV gets a 2.0-litre diesel engine that makes around 170 PS of power and 420 Nm of torque. This is matched to a 10-speed torque converter automatic which is standard across the range. But, the AWD system comes as optional in the TItanium+ variant. In the interiors, Endeavour now gets an 8.0-inch SYNC3 touchscreen infotainment system, which is compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other highlight features include rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, auto park, terrain mode, front parking sensors and more.

Ford To Launch New-Generation Endeavour in 2022

As per rumours, the upcoming third-generation Endeavour will see some radical changes in mechanicals and aesthetics. There are high chances that the new Endeavour will have a lot of resemblance with the latest Ford F-series pickup trucks. The updated version of the body-on-frame chassis used in the Ranger series will most likely underpin the new Endeavour. The engine options will see no upgrades, and Ford will likely retain the 2.0-litre diesel engine.
