Ford Endeavour is now BSVI-compliant and comes with a 2.0L EcoBlue engine and 10-speed automatic gearbox. Also, the top-end variant of the car is now cheaper by Rs. 1.45 lakh.
Ford is updating its lineup to make its product comply with the upcoming BSVI emission standards. The manufacturer started rolling off the updates with the Ecosport, then followed it with the Figo, Aspire, and Freestyle triplets. However, the b––––ig-brawny Endeavour was the last car in the manufacturer’s lineup to get a BSVI engine. It is also the only car to receive an all-new engine with the update, whereas other Ford cars were updated with the BSVI-compliant versions of the outgoing engines. Apart from the engine, the updates have also brought in new price tags for various trims levels of the Endeavour, and what's interesting to note here that one of the new variants is cheaper than the equivalent feature-grade of BSIV version by almost Rs. 1.45 lakh.
The BSVI Endeavour gets a new 2.0L turbo-diesel engine under its hood.
Prices for the BSIV Ford Endeavour start at Rs. 29.55 lakh for the entry-level Titanium 4X2 AT variant. With the BSIV engine, the prices for Endeavour used to start at Rs. 29.20 Lakhs, but that variant was offered with a manual transmission only. Moving on to the next variant – Titanium+ 4X2 AT, it is now priced at Rs. 31.55 lakh, which is Rs. 78,000 cheaper than the Titanium+ 4X2 AT variant of the BSIV Endeavour. The top-end Titanium+ 4X4 AT variant now carries a price tag of Rs. 33.25 lakh, making it a full Rs. 1.45 lakh cheaper than the top-end variant of the BSIV car.
With reduced prices, the Endeavour is now a cleaner car as it exhales lesser carbon constituents, thanks to the new 2.0L EcoBlue turbocharged diesel engine. However, the engine now produces a peak power output of 170 HP and max. torque of 420 Nm of max. torque, while the earlier 3.2L and 2.2L diesel units produced rated outputs of 200HP/470Nm and 160HP/385Nm, respectively. The new engine is also frugal in comparison to the older units as it comes mated to a new 10-speed automatic gearbox and returns a fuel efficiency of 13.9 kmpl in 4X2 configuration and 12.4 kmpl in 4X4 layout.
With the update, the Endeavour continues to look like the outgoing car. However, it now gets all-LED headlamps with projectors setup. The humongous proportions of the car help it to retain its massive road-presence and capabilities to dwarf the biggest of the cars on the road. The BSVI Endeavour will compete against the likes of Toyota Fortuner.
