Any mechanical changes to the 2019 Ford Endeavour?
Yes and no. Yes, because the manual is back and can be availed with the base engine. No, because the engines themselves haven’t got any revisions. Both are BS-IV compliant and boast the same power outputs as before. The 2.2-litre 4-cylinder diesel engine makes 160PS of power and 385Nm of torque. This engine can be optioned with either a 6-speed manual or an AT. The bigger 3.2-litre turbodiesel produces 200PS/470Nm. One can only buy this with the 6-speed AT. The 4×4 (Terrain Management System) is offered only with the automatics.
The claimed fuel efficiency of the manual is 14.2kmpl while that of the 2.2 auto is 12.62kmpl. The 2019 Ford Endeavour comes with a three year or 1,00,000km warranty. There are three variants on offer – 2.2 Titanium manual (Rs 28.19 lakh), 2.2 Titanium+ auto (Rs 31.07 lakh) and 3.2 Titanium+ auto (Rs 33.31 lakh).
