This article will show a tug of war between the Toyota Fortuner vs Ford Endeavour, two formidable competitors in the segment. Let’s see which one is the winner.
The Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour fiercely compete against each other in the Indian auto market. While the former is usually the winner in the commercial aspect, the latter is still a favourite choice of many SUV enthusiasts. Below is a video which shows a tug of war between the two SUVs. Let’s watch until the end of the video to see which one is the winner.
Before coming to the battle between these two cars, we would like to introduce them first. The Toyota Fortuner is a Sigma-4 variant which receives its power from a 2.8-litre turbo oil burner which can manufacture 174 BHP against 420 Nm and is mated to a 6-speed MT. It comes with a 4WD system. In the meanwhile, the Ford Endeavour is the old version which is powered by a 3.2-litre 5-cyl oil burner, which can generate 179 BHP against 470 Nm.
At the beginning of the video, both the SUV struggle to pull each other on their sides. Nevertheless, the battle finishes with the Endeavour being the winner by pulling the Fortuner for several metres. In the second round, again, the Endeavour is the winner but this time, it can pull the competitor for a remarkable distance. Two of the contributory factors to the results of the battle are the driver and the condition of the tyres. Nevertheless, whether the drivers who drive the two cars are the same in the two rounds remains to be unknown. The main reason for the victory of the Endeavour seems to be the low-end torque.
You are absolutely not advised to implement this activity since it can seriously damage the car’s motors, gearbox and drivetrain. An immense force is put on the motors and it can increase to the highest level when the four wheels are not driving towards anywhere but the motor is still resisting the force. Furthermore, such a massive force on the car’s motor can fasten the wear and tear process of the car’s mechanical parts. Therefore, always avoid these challenges for the well-being of the car.
The Ford Endeavour is currently offered with only a single engine: a 2.0-litre turbo 4-cyl motor which can manufacture 168 BHP against 420 Nm. It is the only car in the Indian auto market that comes with only a 10-speed AT gearbox. Meanwhile, the Fortuner is powered by both petrol and diesel motor options which are paired with both manual and automatic transmission.
