I am trying to get the figure, how many Endy did Ford sell in the month of Oct. Unfortunately google does not have this detail nor has the monthly Team BHP car sale figures come out. Anybody got this data ?

I should have the numbers by tomorrow.

I was also watching Autocar India's review of the Endeavour and they were trying to access the 3rd row incorrectly. There is a lever you pull on the 2nd row of seats which inclines the seat and then you push it forward to open up space. Repeat the same procedure for exiting 3rd Row. Just hope they do it right when the comparison comes out.

Some of the indian reviews are little biased on the new Toyota so i will expect the comparisons to be subjective than objective. I hope to be proven wrong.

Looks like October was not a great month for Ford. Not sure of the Endeavour numbers but it can be affected too, considering the new Fortuner launch. Quoting Autocarpro
Quote:
Ford India sold a total of 7,508 vehicles, down 25% (October 2015: 10,008) in the domestic market. Its exports of 14,535 units rose 40% compared to 10,412 units in October 2015. - See more at: http://www.autocarpro.in/analysis-sa....6gCbzjIM.dpuf
In addition, the following statement is encouraging, hope Ford will further improve on their after sales and cost of ownership

Quote:
“The automotive industry is seeing the impact of a good monsoon, Seventh Pay Commission and other macroeconomic indicators like inflation. As we look for the industry momentum to sustain, Ford remains committed to its strategy of product-led innovation, a differentiated customer experience, and breaking the myth on our cost of ownership,” said Anurag Mehrotra, executive director (Marketing, Sales & Service), Ford India. - See more at: http://www.autocarpro.in/analysis-sa....6gCbzjIM.dpuf

Thank you Sir, that is such an awesome thing you do. I religiously follow that report.
I think with the new Apple Play the new Endy is just amazing for the money. I plan to get one in Q1. If Ford reduces the price to compete against Fortuner, then I might run over myself to the dealer.

I had owned a Ford Taurus for nearly 13 yrs. Drove 170k miles on it. Not as single issue ever during that 13 yrs. Finally before moving to India for good, I donated that car. Now I drive a 2012 New Fiesta DCT automatic. 80k kms of fantastic ride and ownership so far. Slowly Ford is getting that "reliable-durability" image, like Toyota.

Guys head to the Live Webcast of Ford India. Top Bosses have some announcements to make. Nice to see Ford being proactive about India.

Some Owners have got their Endeavours in a week, 3.2 Titanium that is.

Deliveries have improved, at least in Metropolitan Cities

Was Wondering.. Is there any way by which some of the 'Endevour Evangelists' like us would get a chance to upgrade to Sync 3 ? What are the odds ?

I am pestering "Ford India" to replace the one in my endeavour with Sync 3 as they are not able to solve the radio issue, which is irritating me a lot 😡

Till date, they dont have any answer apart from saying that their techincal team is working on solution (from past few months!!!)

I am willing to pay the difference if such an option is available - as long as I am guaranteed hassle free and seamless upgrade and warranty coverage.

So the new Titanium with Sync 3 is now available at Dealerships. However, there is still no Navigation. It's still Extra. There are options to open Apps as well Android Auto. Could not connect as I was carrying iPhone. Sales guys have limited information at the moment as they got the first lot only yesterday. It does appear faster than previous and looks better.

Coming to prices, after budget they have increased prices of Trend by about 1 Lac whereas Titanium was increased by only 50,000. So the recent cut on lower variants will not be passed on Titanium. Local dealer has confirmed to pass me the benefit in case there is a reduction in next 2 months. Rather they are expecting an increase in New Year.

The announcement from the Ford bosses turns out to be about the new global business and technology center in Chennai with an investment of 1300 crores . Ford is serious about India!

I think SYNC 3 comes with Apple CarPlay as well. Your iPhone should have worked with the new infotainment system.

Oct domestic sales figures for Ford looks deep red. With the recent anti-black money measures and the uncertainty it created, I would not expect the next 2 months to be any better. So I doubt any price increase for New Year.

I would think this way - Ford has more or less exhausted the play with pricing. They need to figure out a better marketing strategy. Price cuts and face-list will give you only so much, brand development is probably where they will start putting money in.

Wondering loud why they cant just go to big Tech Parks such as Manyata, Embassy, GE tech center etc in B'lore or other big cities and have a 2 day session. Show cut-out section of the car, technology, features, engineering depth etc. Have chat sessions with Ford Senior Engineers. I would think this will go more than just price cuts. Sigh..

As per local dealer here, they didn't get any shipments for Titanium last month most likely due to Sync upgrade. However, they have few in transit and are eager to pass rebates as well. Yes, you are correct, they have limited options on pricing now, especially considering very high Import contents on these vehicles.

I am happy they are in for long haul in the country when it comes to innovation and tapping the talent in India. At the same time, it is sad they have not been able to crack the market and it does not look like they are putting enough effort on marketing
