My comments were limited to the Endeavour/Everest. Infact if we look at reviews of Ford Everest, there are comparisons with LC Prado, Land Rover discovery...etc just because of price point.

Toyota enjoys a premium in India because of the reliability and the trust they have built up over a period of time which Ford, Mitsubishi, Chevrolet were not able to do. As long as customers are willing to pay the premium, I dont see a reason why Toyota should bother about reducing the prices. Its not that there is demand for whatever toyota sells/manufactures, Fortuner is a very competent product and Toyotas perceived value is much better than any of these SUV makers in India and rightly so.

OT : Isuzu has long way to go, It will be a game changer for them if they can manage to price MUX under 20L and make sure they get us the most of their international features/specifications.

But I will agree with

If Isuzu manges to price the MU7 at around 20 lakhs,it is sure to kill the Fortuner, Endeavour ,Tucson,Santa fe etc within a month of launch.

They seem to be getting serious about the Indian market after the success of V cross.

Lets hope for the best

Voted for Ford Endeavour. Best in class with almost all features with pricing lower than Fortuner.

Toyota is definitely going on a wrong track if you see their horrible pricing strategy with Fortuner and Crysta.

I have used (abused) my Fortuner 2.7 Petrol almost everywhere in the UAE, It has NEVER disappointed and never got stuck in sand, beach, rain water, river beds, wadis etc.

Now im planning to buy an used 4.0 Petrol first generation for more power and better the performance of the 2.7.

Oh yes, i voted for Toyota Fortuner.

Voted for Fortuner. No MT on top-end 4x4 Endeavor is a deal breaker for me. Yes, I am old school.
