The Ford Endeavour, a rugged SUV, is known for its rich features and is available with a 2.0-litre single turbo and a 2.0-litre Bi-turbo diesel engine in the Asia-Pacific region. In 2021, Ford stopped its operations in India, planning to sell its production plant to JSW Group. However, they didn’t finalize the deal, sparking rumors of Ford’s return to the Indian market. Recently, a leaked patent reveals the design of the new Ford Endeavour.
If Ford comes back to India, they might start by selling completely built units (CBU) before moving to assembling completely knocked down units (CKD). The production plant in India would be crucial for this. The new Ford Endeavour, which debuted globally in 2022 as the Ford Everest in some countries, could play a key role in competing with SUVs like the Toyota Fortuner.
Job listings by Ford on social media add to the speculation, including roles like Senior Engineer and Manufacturing Digital Transformation Integration Architect Manager. The new Endeavour boasts a modern look, with significant features like big headlamps, C-shaped DRLs, and advanced safety features such as a 360-degree camera, blind-spot monitoring, and various driver-assistance technologies. In the Asia-Pacific region, it comes with a 2.0-litre single turbo and a 2.0-litre Bi-turbo diesel engine, offering both 4×2 and 4×4 options with up to 6 drive modes, depending on the variant.
