That's great news.
If production starts by October , the launch may be in december.

Well, the current Endeavour production has long been stopped. Diwali is 11/11 this year and a week before that date seems a good bet :-)

Ford India has listed Endeavour as future SUV on its website and updated its microsite with the upcoming model.

Ford has arranged a dealer meet in Thailand. Dealers are driving the new Endy too, known as the Everest, in Thailand. Initial feedback received from contacts I know are promising. Particularly, the Ford equivalent of Terrain Response System. Refinement, also, is apparently noteworthy.

Any comments on the seating comfort and specially the rear seat layout? The current Endeavour's middle row seating was specially labelled as quite inferior compared to the competition with the middle row occupant's legs pointing at a very uncomfortable angle.
The SUV market is really getting excited finally with so many new launches coming up.

Rightly pointed out Mohit! Current Endeavour is a generation old now. From the feedback given by various journalist who have driven it, have confirmed the seats to be a step above than the current one. Added flexibility is that one can slide the middle row seats to make space for rear passengers which is a boon in India, as not always children sit at the back but adults too. Underthigh support is not a benchmark in its segment, still much better than the current Fortuner. Ofcourse one needs to wait for the real feel once its available in Indian market.

Variants of Ford are expected to be standard Ambiente, Trend & Titanium, with Titanium being loaded with all bells and whistles. Ofcourse not all features launched globally may reach India to keep the price competitive. For readers interested in what is the specific difference between variants & colors on offer. Attached is the brochure from Australian Ford Website for Everest (ahem Endeavour)

Just had a look at the Australian specs. I hope everything expect radar based systems make their way in the Indian model, atleast on the Titanium variant.

"There is also a ton of safety and luxury features on board and from what Nigel Harris, MD of Ford India claims, most of it will be available to customers in India. What may not be available are features like lane departure assist, adaptive cruise control and some other features that would raise the price to astronomical levels. "

Thanks for sharing!

Few questions:

How was the road presence ?
Did it have the "don't mess with me look " of the Fortuner

Was the silver one top of the line"Titanium"?
Looks like they have knocked off the front sensors and LED tail lamps(Thailand's version gets them)

Where is that post anyways?

Gone without a trace? Anyways, those Endeavours seem to be exactly the same as listed in Zauba for imports.



They probably are out of homologation and now into testing or maybe heading to different major vendors for an introduction.
