I think Camry comes as a CBU rather than ckd or skd. hence the price at 20+ lakhs at 110% import duty

Gearboxes and engines = quite a lot of value saved

The new interior is pretty good if you ask me


I think they ruined the front, the old one was butch and macho...they messed it up.

Rear is unchanged. Engines are from Thai spec ranger..originally from Transit van. New 5 spd auto is also touted but may not make it to India.

pics from: carspyshots.net

Ford designs are mostly made in such a manner that they are not badlooking to anyone even if it means risking the fact that their cars may not be stunners[i.e. neutral designs].Now how did this[the new endeavour] pass through?

Exactly...!! They shud have quit fiddling with the front look, and done something about those rear lights. They look real drab ..!!

Default Rear seat..

The thigh support on the rear seats suck.. I hope the new one has better space for the rear seats. The tuscon is much better though it is smaller in this respect..

I saw the new Endeavour today. The grille is not all chrome as in the older model, but has a chrome border only, like a Q7.
Sorry, couldnt manage any pics. Though I tried and got an absolutely laughable attempt. (Couple a hopeless phone with fading light+long distance).

I have marked out the area where the Endy is supposed to be. Its right next to the TL.

Default Nice effort Sajo


Its looking a lot like Forrester from the front now apart from the ride height. But interiors are bang on target , nice luxurious and look well finished thought AC vents are a La Toyota , should have been more original.

Its looking a bit like Forrester . Exterior design unexciting , as far as interiors are concerned it looks great apart from the la-toyota AC vents , they could have done a more original Job.

@rahul_intlad : I am sure its an Endy. Will try to get some more pics today, if I manage to go.

I am referring to the vehicle on the left. I apologise for the quality of the pic.
