The New Ford Endeavour 4WD helps you tackle any surface, on-road or off, at the turn of a dial. Its Terrain Management System lets you shift-on-the-fly to maximise traction and stability so you stay in control.Rock mode,Sand mode and Snow mode are provided in the terrain mangement system.
In the inside ford has provide, touchscreen and all functions are carried over.The ford endeavour has newly designed gearknob with metal inserts and a push-button start switch replacing the key-start. In terms of infotainment,8.0-inch touchscreen which features a SYNC3 system and comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There is also no change to the instrument cluster and gets the same centre-placed odometer, with digital screens on both sides displaying bundle of information. Lastly, it gets puddle lamps on the front doors.
The seats in ford endeavour gets softer cushioning and they are more comfortable than before.The second and third row remains the same, offering fantastic panoramic sunroof, roof-mounted AC vents and manual adjust for the middle row bench.
The third row, too, can be electrically adjustable, like before.The new addition here you can access the boot, just by sliding your foot under the rear bumper.
Endeavouris powered by the same two engine options – a 2.2-litre diesel paired to a 6-speed automatic gearbox and with two-wheel drive, and the bigger 3.2-litre diesel with AWD, which is also mated to a 6-speed automatic. Now there we can see re-introduction of the 2.2-litre engine with manual gearbox, which was discontinued in the earlier version. In the 3.2 litre model on startup you realise that the refinement is slightly better this time round, and there is less of that diesel clatter when compared to the older car.While the active noise cancellation works tremendously well here, the engine too is fairly refined. Get going and the unchanged sluggish gearbox continues to disappoint. As you climb over 2,500 rpm, the engine sounds strained and there is a good amount of that big 3.2-litre roar seeping into the cabin.
That said, the gearbox does get slightly better and more responsive in Sport mode where it holds the gears longer and downshifts a bit faster. What has also improved is the ride quality. The older version was soft and supple enough, but this one is just a tad bit more. Yes, the soft seats help, but the suspension takes on bumps and potholes marginally better than the older version and offers a comfy, cushioning ride. The steering is light and has a consistent feel.
The safety features of endeavour are of the same, with seven airbags, ABS with EBD and ESC, hill start\descent assist, parking sensors in bot ends and with a rear parking camera, tyre pressure monitoring system. And Other features like automatic park assist, auto headlamps, terrain select, dual-zone automatic climate control, etc., are carried forward.
