I wonder whats bold abt that? Going by Ford's definition of bold, Maruti would be India's boldest company with even their entry-level cars sporting a variety of body graphics

The least they could hve provided here was a reversing camera, as seen on the Safari. The club version is just a visual treat, and nothing more.

It's also called the we-need-to-get-rid-of-the-last-few series. The common-rail ones should be out soon.

They are trying to get rid of old stocks to make for the redesigned one. I guess they also have a lot of useleless accessories in stock which they are just slapping on this model so they can clear them as well, as these wont fit on the newer one.

Are they calling this "new"? Earlier, they had the HURRICANE series for a while having all these features.....I wonder how much longer they are going to drag the launch of the actual "new" one

There has been considerable speculation that the Ford Endeavour is set to be relaunched after going through a facelift and a change of heart. The Endeavour, which is a popular full-size sports utility even in the Thai market, is based on the Ford Ranger pick-up truck platform.
In Thailand, this SUV is called the Ford Everest and there it has been put through a full model transformation that includes design changes to the exterior and new TDCi (Ford's own version of common rail direct injection) engines.
But in India, before a possibly bigger and more substantial model change to the Endeavour can be made, Ford India has launched a new variant of the diesel SUV with a few exterior changes that are designed to improve the vehicle's appeal and practicality quotients.
The new Club Series of the Endeavour with additional features, available in four-wheel drive (4X4) and 4X2 variants, offers premium SUV buyers greater value for money, enhanced, rugged looks, greater safety and improved convenience on the vehicle.
The new features on the Club Series Endeavour include: ........

Guys I was travelling with a Ford dealer yesterday and his take on this was that they are offering all this to liquidate the current stock of the Endeavours, the new one will be out next month and will more or less be priced in the same range, his view was may be some 25,000 to 30,000 more than the current price.
