Torque may not be an issue for the gearbox. The same engine is available with 6 speed MT on Ford Ranger in Thailand.

Any idea.
My dealer said this can't be done for Trend variant.

I also inquired for getting the IRVM changed to an auto-dimming one but the head of service said he wouldn't any wiring related changes for the Endeavour. I am still looking for options on this one.

we are getting excellent discounts on Trend variant like 4-5 Lakh difference wrt titanium, but missing of front sensors and can't be retrofitted is big miss by Ford.
They should provide it as accessory at least for Trend.
Front sensors, 4 additional airbags and few cosmetic changes cost 4-5 lakh :-(

There is a big difference between Trend and titanium especially 3.2
1. Sunroof
2. Extra air bags + knee air bags
3. Front sensors.
4. Sync 3 in post October models
5. Leather on dash board.
6. Leather on roof
7. Gun metal alloys
8. Auto 3rd row folding seats
7. Auto head lamps
8. Head light washers
9. Hid lamps
10. Burgler alarm
11. chrome on footstep.
12. Auto wipers
13. Inbuilt Gps
14. Parallel park assist

Some of these features like sunroof and park assist are not in the 2.2L 4x2 titanium AT.

May have missed some more features !

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I was comparing with 2.2/AT version.

Your list has pretty much everything but most of them are cosmetic like leather on roof, chrome on footstep and auto head lamps etc.
Functionality point of view, air bags and front sensors (possibly sync 3) are the major difference.
I don't think we ever use parallel park assist unless you want to demo to your friends, IMHO.

The display does show it.
The titanium also has side sensors.

This is the biggest gap I believe. I am still appalled by the fact that Ford did not offer 7 airbags as standard across all variants. After all, the lowest variant is close to INR 30 lac on road in most states. Fortuner, on the other hand, has 7 airbags as standard across all variants. Ford - this is not done

++ LED DRL's standard on Titanium series ( 2.2 & 3.2) Trend doesn't have any DRL's

Auto rain sensing wipers is standard across the variants. Also i don't think its leather on roof for Titanium, its a different black color material for Titanium than the white one on Trend.

The reason is pretty simple, there isn't a big market for manual in this price bracket. Of course there are enthusiasts who complain lack of manual transmission in 3.2, but to be frank there aren't enough enthusiasts out there for Ford to consider a manual transmission.

Per Ford, the reason not to offer a smart entry on Everest/Endeavour is the 'crank in any gear' feature, which means primarily this was designed to be a manual transmission vehicle.

I am getting excellent deal on 2.2 Trend/AT but manufactured in Aug/2016. Is it norm to get 3-4 months old endeavor, I know premium vehicles usually have backlog but not sure what is the "norm".
As per sales person, it is new and okay with PDI before delivery.
Any suggestions. Thanks.

It is more than a mere color difference.The roof lining in Titanium is of much premium material than Trend. The leather is present in top portion of dash which is not present in trend.

I did not mean it is not possible to make a 3.2 with Manual transmission. All I meant was there isn't a big enough market in India for Ford to consider a manual transmission in 3.2

As i know Ford has a large inventory of trend variant in their yard and the one you are getting should be from Ford stock yard Chennai. I don't think you should have any problems with a 4 month old manufactured product.

My reply was related to the 6th point. I agree its a premium material compared to the one in Trend but not leather.

Yes, it's commonly called anthracite headliner - standard in most of M variants in BMW range, looks premium over the regular ones.

Definitely, nothing to worry, double check if this is from August or previous months like April / May- not that it matters but many guys have backed out at last moment. Take the best advantage of this offer.
