Ford Endeavour that is known as Ford Everest in China is scheduled to be launched in May 2015. A Chinese LHD specification of the 2015 Ford Everest was caught under wraps in China. The model in the spyshot seems to be a lower variant featuring a matte silver hexagonal three slat grille, headlamps with black plastic and the projector headlamps that was showcased at the Guangzhou Auto Show.
The interiors sport steering wheel and dashboard trim in black and it also features a manual transmission while the Terrain Management System dial is missing. Besides that, the black dashboard houses a smaller non-touchscreen infotainment display.
Ford has earlier confirmed that the Endeavour will be powered by a 2.2-liter four-cylinder TDCi engine, a 3.2-liter five-cylinder TDCi engine and a 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine would also be on offer.
Ford has planned the launch of the 2016 Ford Endeavour along with the Ford Figo compact sedan and hatchback. The 2016 Endeavour will be manufactured at Ford’s plant in Chennai from CKD kits produced in Thailand.
2016 Ford Endeavour is expected to be priced between Rs. 20 lakhs to Rs. 25 lakhs (ex-showroom price) and once launched in India, it will compete with Honda CR-V, Toyota Fortuner, Hyundai Santa Fe, Isuzu MU-7 and Ssangyong Rexton.
