Ford India today unveiled the Ford Endeavour 3-litre 4x2 Automatic (AT), the newest addition to its Endeavour premium SUV range.

At the launch of the new car, Michael Boneham, president and managing director, Ford India, said, “We are excited and delighted to introduce our latest Endeavour variant to India. Building on the strong Endeavour sales so far this year, and the overwhelming response to the automatic transmission launched last year, we are confident that the Ford Endeavour 4x2 AT will be a popular and well received addition to our product line-up.”

Priced at Rs. 17,88,760 (ex-showroom, Bengaluru) the Endeavour 4x2 AT is powered by a 3.0-litre, 153.8 bhp DuraTorq TDCi (common-rail) powertrain with Variable Geometry Turbocharger and a 5-speed auto gearbox with overdrive switch on the shift lever. It offers the best-in-class torque of 380 Nm at 2500 rpm.

Compared to other diesel automatic offerings in the Rs 15-20 Lakh premium SUV segment, the DuraTorq engine of the new SUV delivers class-leading fuel efficiency of 10.7 kmpl (ARAI). “Like other variants in the portfolio, the 4x2 variant is robust, good looking, great to drive and versatile. We describe it as a ‘smooth operator’ SUV with the state-of-art 5-speed auto transmission technology that provides a superb and effortless driving experience whether negotiating congested city streets, cruising on the highway or exploring country hills and back roads,” said Boneham.

The spacious interior sports a classy two tone finish, ergonomically designed leather upholstered seats, a 6-CD changer music system and DVD player and dual air conditioner with personalized AC vents for second and third rows. It also offers safety features such as dual-stage front air bags for the driver and passenger, and ABS with EBD for extra security.

The Ford Endeavour 3.0-litre 4x2 Automatic (AT) is available in five colour options; Diamond White, Moondust Silver, Sea Grey, Panther Black and Morello.
