  • The Endeavour’s new 2.0-litre diesel engine develops 170PS and 420Nm.
  • It will be offered with a new 10-speed automatic transmission, a first in India!
  • The existing 2.2-litre engine and 3.2-litre engine will face the axe soon.
  • BS6 Ford Endeavour to come with LED headlamps and Ford Pass connected car technology.

Ford India will launch the BS6-compliant Endeavour by the end of February 2020. Ford dealerships across the country have already started accepting bookings and have informed us that it’s expected to be priced around Rs 40 lakh (on-road). Further, the existing 2.2-litre and 3.2-litre engine won’t be upgraded to meet BS6 emission norms and will be discontinued eventually.

The main change on the BS6-compliant Ford Endeavour lies under the hood. It will be offered with a new 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine putting out 170PS of power and 420Nm of torque. We expect Ford to offer this engine with both rear wheel drive and all-wheel drive variants. Also new is a 10-speed automatic transmission, a first in India!

Meanwhile, the existing 2.2-litre and 3.2-litre diesel engines won’t be upgraded to meet BS6 emission norms. Here’s a detailed spec comparison of the existing engines and the new 2.0-litre diesel engine:

The new 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine is not as powerful as the bigger 3.2-litre, 5-cylinder unit. It’s more powerful than the smaller 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder unit and the figures suggest it’ll offer a fair balance between both engines.

Apart from the engine, the new Endeavour will also be offered with new features like LED headlamps and Ford Pass connected car technology. The latter will allow you to remotely start the car, lock and unlock the doors as well as operate select features on your Endeavour.

The BS6-compliant Ford Endeavour will renew its rivalry with the Toyota Fortuner, Mahindra Alturas G4 and upcoming MG Gloster.
