Ford Everest is one of the most popular crossovers in Australia. Next year it will get a facelift. At the same time, fans in India will get their own version of the SUV as 2019 Ford Endeavour. These two models will share almost all, except the name. The base for Endeavour is borrowed from a Ford Ranger truck. So, we can call it an SUV version of a popular pickup.
A mid-size crossover will offer both petrol and diesel engines, with either manual or automatic transmission. The 2019 Ford Endeavour is not going to offer plenty of equipment at its base level. But, higher trims will include premium accessories. Being based on Everest and Ranger means the new SUV will have similar styling language, interior layout, and engine lineup as its sibling.
2019 Ford Endeavour Engine
The crossover will use a 3.2-liter diesel engine as the base unit. Duratoq mill is an excellent choice either for city cruising or off-road ride. The drivetrain is ready to create 143 kW (190 horsepower) and 470 Nm (350 lb-ft) of torque. Power distribution is to rear wheel by default. With this mode, the 2019 Ford Endeavour consumes 8.4 l/100 km. A 4WD option returns better traction and balance, especially off the road. Also, its fuel economy is not so worse, taking 8.5 liters per 100 kilometers.
Turbodiesel engine is pretty capable to tow. According to the company’s releases, the 2019 Ford Endeavour will be able to put 100 kg on its roof. Overall towing capacity is 3,000 kg, which is equivalent to 6,600 pounds. Maximum payload is 750 kg or 1650 pounds.
2019 Ford Endeavour Notable Features
The 2019 Ford Endeavour will be similar to Everest and Ranger, but these three are not going to use the same equipment. For example, the SYNC3 infotainment system is available right from the base trim on Australian vehicles. The 2019 Ford Endeavour, which comes for the Indian market, will have modest accessories. Park Assist could be available, while navigation is certain on higher trim levels.
As its siblings, the 2019 Ford Endeavour will offer some additional accessories to make everything more comfortable. Skid plates are going to protect parts under the vehicle. Cargo area lighting will definitely help a lot during low-visibility conditions. Endeavour SUV is also going to offer some body upgrades just for nicer appearance.
2019 Ford Endeavour Arrival
The 2019 Ford Endeavour is definitely going to be available next season in India. However, there are no further details about release dates in other countries. We expect it to see in the same region, with growing interest in Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Fans should listen to the news and rumors carefully since the Ford department for this part of the world could also decide to launch Everest there.
At this moment, pricing says that 2019 Ford Endeavour will start around 27 lakhs, or $40,000. This is a pretty high cost for this part of the world, but that is the same price of the new Ford Everest. Also, the Ranger truck is not much more expensive.
