Looks like nothing has been done towards the horrible rear seat supports.

Unless they correct the rear seating problem and address the comfort levels, the sales of Endeavour is only going to nosedive with the competition hotting up in this arena.

On the looks department as well, the current generation looks much better IMO.

they use those leafsprings i think and jeremy clarkson once said that in the ford mustang they also use leaf springs it ruins the ride quality. and its old tech.

it looks better than the current Endeavour from outside. However, the centre console looks the same. Even the steering wheel is the same 4 spoke.

Is it only me or does this model looks less aggressive and less macho?

I second that.No model after the first version of endeavour looked "THE MACHO".And ford fails yet again ! God save them.The only thing we had bought many endeavours because of it's comfort for heavy people.

This shall be a good upgrade in the wake of Fortuner, but the crutial issue of ride quality & second row seating postion needs to be tackled, which doesn't seem likely because of the platform restrictions.
