Ford could be planning to launch a new and powerful engine on the Ford Endeavour in India. Reports suggest that the new Endeavour will come with a twin-turbo diesel engine. Earlier reports indicated that the new engine would come with the next-generation Ford Endeavour. But now, images of the Ford Endeavour reveal that the current generation SUV is likely to be updated with the new engine.
Ford Endeavour Spyshots
According to spy shots, images of a test mule of the Ford Endeavour with emission testing equipment have emerged on the internet close to Chakan Pune. The brand could be testing the new twin-turbo engine and waiting for type approvals. Reportedly, the new 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel engine will produce 211 Bhp of power and 500 Nm of torque. The four-cylinder motor is likely to come with a 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. The test mule does not reveal any other changes to the exteriors of the vehicle. But the final production model is likely to come with a few differentiating elements.
Ford Endeavour Current Engine Specifications
Currently, the Ford Endeavour comes with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with a single turbocharger. The motor produces 168 Hp of power and 420 Nm of torque. The oil motor also comes with a 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. The brand will likely retain the BS6 compliant EcoBlue engine for lower-spec models while the twin-turbo engine powers the top-of-the-line variants.
Next-Generation Ford Endeavour Engine Specifications
In the next generation, the Ford Endeavour will come with a 2.3-litre four-cylinder hybrid motor. The engine will produce 365 Bhp of power and 680 Nm of torque. Ford could also offer a new 3.0-litre V6 engine on the Endeavour in the future. Rumours suggest that the next-generation SUV is currently under development.
The Ford Endeavour with the new twin-turbo diesel engine will now directly compete with the MG Gloster that also comes with a 218 PS/480 Nm 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel motor. The SUV also competes with the Toyota Fortuner in the Indian market.
