Default Re: Ford Endeavour 2.0L Diesel AT : Official Review (with dune bashing)

Hello BHPians...

Need some advice on an observation that i made in my 2.0 endeavour today.

Probably, it was for the 1st time i switched to 4x4 low in my 7 month old Endeavour and there was a very significant under body shake by the mechanicals during gear shift which was felt with a massive turbulence inside the cabin. I had owned a fortuner 4x4 prior to this and the gear shifts in 4x4 low , though felt but were not that ugly.


Fellow Endeavour 2.0 owners can probably throw some light

Hope the shift to Low range was made with:

a) Transmission in N (the electronics do not allow otherwise, but just in case)
b) Vehicle at standstill

Some amount of vibrations are normal during the shift, but not to the extent of shaking the cabin, as you mentioned. Since this was the first time you engaged Low range, could be the mechanicals "setting in". Did you repeat the procedure? If so, did the extent of vibrations change?

Edit: Just saw the note on "second service". How come the vehicle has seen its second service if it is a Dec 2020 model, done only 1,800 km? The second service comes up after 1 yr of ownership or 10,000 km, whichever is earlier.
It happens only when car is running/accelerating.
Only driven on highways and good roads never been on bad roads.
Nope, this has nothing to do with parking brake. It was noticed way before the parking brake issue..

My friend desperately wanted to check the vibration issue that's why he took the vehicle to service center and thought of changing the engine oil too as the vehicle was very rarely used. When the parking brake warning showed up, instead of just changing the engine oil he decided to do the second service as well, barely 6 months from the purchase. Service center was happy to accept and didn't even bother to remind him that the service wasn't due ( Per schedule its 1 year / 10000 KMs whichever earlier ). First service was done at 825KMs ( Per schedule its 3 months / 2500Kms whichever earlier). It looks like even the service center did not have any clue about the Endeavour service interval too. After the first service next service was mentioned as 'June' instead of 'December'

Wow!! Really hope so. We've just been contemplating to get an Endeavour home and if this is true, it could be too good news for me.
However, although it seems like it, I doubt Ford getting that Bi-Turbo now at this time where internationally the current gen Endeavour is on the end of it's life cycle and the new-gen car might be coming as early as next year.

Hope our in-house experts can confirm about the bi-turbo thing. If that's true, I'd happily wait for it to launch and get my hands on that version itself.

Owner says he bought Endeavour in 2016, made a mistake and did commit mistake again in 2020 by buying another Endeavour. Since he already had problem with Ford, wonder what made him buy another one. While 10 speed unit is complex and the average 2.0L engine badly needs this, Ford(and even GM) has this gearbox on quite a few models, which has been improved over time. Difficult time for owner but all current cars are complex and comes with certain percentage of risk.

It could be emissions testing by ARAI, if itís not the bi-turbo.

Update :

My friend got it escalated to Anurag @ Ford India and the next day he got a call from Kairali Ford and they brought the demo vehicle to his place for test drive and comparison. Mild vibration is present in the demo vehicle as well.

Good to see there is some response from Ford India but feels sorry for Anurag. If customers are keep reaching out you for help which means the level below isn't working or not competent enough !!!

These are decent numbers. There is no denying the fact that there is a part of the market that see beyond Toyota's resale image and prefers Endeavour over Fortuner. I don't think those 928 customers bought the Endeavour to save 3-4 lakhs. Obviously they value something that the Endeavour represents.

I think Ford will introduce the BiTurbo version and price it on par with Fortuner. They should not be afraid to price it on par with Fortuner or even slightly above it. As long as the pricing do not go a lot above Fortuner, the sales will continue. I see this as a good opportunity to increase their margins. 900 Endeavours per month with better margin should be easy to accomplish. Who knows the numbers may go further up too, because the BiTurbo will get rid of the concerns about Ford leaving.

Endeavour brand has been in India for about 20 years now and has managed to create a good fanbase. With 3.2 gone, Sunroof and American styling is big draw for majority of buyers and actually are Endeavour' USP. Of course has better ride, cheap service and you get to save around 2.5L come as bonus.

What a sad day for all those who bought one in the last year or so! However much the company claims that they will back everything up in terms of service, I don't think anyone should have any doubt that none of the dealers would continue to operate only on the basis of service. They will shift to other brands or shut shop.

The BiTurbo may still come. In fact, I think, BiTurbo launch was triggered by the manufacturing shutdown decision. Since there is no India specific manufacturing, they can only sell international models now. This means we may get the exact model that Australia is getting.

If the BiTurbo indeed comes, the prices will significantly go up. That should not be too bad for the current-gen Endeavour owners. At least the snob value should go up since Endeavor will then become a premium product even costlier than Fortuner.
