Leaked images of the Ford Everest / Endeavour concept

Recommended Posts

That's a treat to eyes and looks almosy 98% identical to what Ford showed us few months ago as a concept in Australia! Bring it on with a 4WD+6speed Auto and a 3 ltr engine and get ready to accept my Cheque :D

Though this looks modern in its styling, I think it has lost the robust and menacing look it had on its first design that was launched in India.

I'm still a fan of that design.. the tail gate mounted spare wheel really had those looks you'd want from this kind of a car.

This seems too toned down and rounded design - very much like Fortuner.

Not gonna happen :P

Hey, its going to happen and by 2015 end! Ford has already imported a 3.2 Liter Everest(Endeavor in India) for R&d purpose. Most of the online sources say it will come mated to 6 speed Manual and Automatci gearbox and Ford has really upped the game by providing a Terrain management system for the Offroad enthusiasts. :P:D

2015 Ford Endeavour features explained

The 2015 Endeavour will boast a number of features such as LED daytime running lights and an eight-inch touchscreen for Ford’s new SYNC2 infotainment system.

Ford had unveiled the new Endeavour, also known as the Everest in some international markets, last year. The Ranger-based SUV was first shown in concept form in 2013. It is expected to be launched in India later this year along with the Ford Figi Aspire Sedan and the Figo hatchback, and will follow the CKD route with assembly kits manufactured in Thailand.

Ford will offer the Endeavour in three variants: 2.2 Titanium 4x2 A / T, 3.2 Titanium 4x4 A / T, and 3.2 Titanium+ 4x4 A / T.

These are the most prominent features of each variant:

Ford Endeavour 2.2 Titanium 4x2 A / T

The 2.2 Titanium 4x2 A / T variant will be powered by the Diesel TDCi 2.2-liter Duratorq VGT with 160 horsepower at 3,200 RPM and maximum torque of 385 Nm between 1600 and 2500 rpm. It will also feature a 6-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift transmission as standard, Watts link rear suspension with coil springs, independent front suspension with coilovers and anti-roll bar, and a standard rear-wheel-drive system.

The exterior will include several features such as theft alarm, body-colored front and rear bumpers, halogen projector headlamps with automatic turn on function, 18-inch alloy wheels with 265/60 R18 tyres, power adjustable door mirrors, roof rails, foglights for front and rear ends, rain sensing wipers, and a rear spoiler with third brake light

This variant will also boast a number of safety features such as ABS with EBD, hill Launch Assist (HLA), traction control, electronic Stability Program (ESP), dual front airbags, side and curtain airbags, reverse parking sensors, RSC rollover protection system, key immobilizer, and ISOFIX child seat anchor points.

Ford Endeavour 3.2 Titanium 4x4 A / T

This variant will include all the features available in the in the lower 2.2 Titanium variant. However, it will be powered by the 3.2-liter Duratorq TDCi VGT which produces 200 hp at 3,000 RPM and has a peak torque of 470 Nm at 1,750-2,500 rpm. Some additional features include full time four-wheel-drive system with terrain management, and lockable rear differential.

Ford Endeavour 3.2 Titanium+ 4x4 A / T

This top-of-the-line variant of the Endeavour will have the same powertrain as the 3.2Titanium, but it will have some additional premium interior and exterior features.

Additional exterior features include LED Daytime Running Lights, Bi-Xenon automatic projector headlights with spray cleaner, and 265/65 R20 tires. The interior will also include some premium features like panoramic sunroof, power operated third row seats, driver and front passenger 8-way power adjustable seats, stainless steel scuff plate with LED illumination, and ambient lighting with seven different colours.

Ford Performance's head engineer Jamal Hameedi has hinted to Drive.com that an Everest Raptor (Endeavour Raptor for us) could be a possibility some day!

“There’s no reason [we wouldn’t do an Everest Raptor]. The first F-150 Raptor was way beyond our wildest dreams in terms of success, and that success spawned a Ranger Raptor. So to do an SUV is a little more difficult because you have to figure out how to deal with the rear suspension. In the form of a bodyside outer it’s not just a box outer [and that] poses a unique challenge in how you package that."

Ford Australia product communications manager Damion Smy also believes performance SUVs are the future, saying: "There’s definitely a case for more performance oriented or at least more sports styled SUVs in the future."

Drive.com's already created a speculative rendering of what it could look like...

Finally some more pics of the facelifted Endeavour (Everest in international markets). Ford's launched the SUV in Thailand, where it gets some minor styling updates mainly on the front with an updated grille, bumper and headlamp inserts.

Under the hood, the facelifted Endeavour (Everest) gets an all-new 2.0-litre diesel motor, which was introduced internationally on the Ranger pickup truck, along with a new 10-speed automatic. It comes with two output options – a 180hp/420Nm variant and a twin-turbo 213hp/500Nm one. While this engine will be available on the SUV sold in most international markets, it won’t make it to India.

Inside, the infotainment system sees an inclusion of Ford’s Sync 3 interface. As far as safety goes, it gets autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection.

As reported by Autocar India HERE the current engine line-up on the India-spec Ford Endeavour SUV will see an update to make them sail through the stricter BS-VI emission norms that will come into play sometime in 2020.
