Synopsis

It all began with Henry Ford cutting the ribbon to one of the pioneering automobile heavyweights back in 1917 when he first unveiled Ford Model T to the world. This revolutionized the era of automobiles and since then more and more automobile makers entered the arena. Ford Endeavour has affixed its position as one of the most competent SUVs rolling in India. Ford India has upgraded the Endeavour and it will be now sold as Endeavour Alterrain and it comes with host of new features like new tough grille, touchscreen navigation system, new stylish 16 inch alloy wheels, new audio control on steering column, electric shift-on-fly and reverse parking camera. The base model of Endeavour Alterrain is priced at INR 19.11 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). Here is how Ford Endeavour Alterrain maintains its aggressive stance in the Indian SUV arena. 

Ford Endeavour Exterior

When it comes to satisfying customers by its looks, Ford leaves no stones unturned. Starting with the front fascia, Endeavour boasts of an aggressive bonnet with a wide grille. Along with this, the head lamps are large and pretty sporty and the new over-ride bumpers make the car look even more stylish from the front. Just above the bumpers, there are fog lamps of high intensity which help in clearing view in case if visibility is low. The rear view mirrors on the side of the car come with an anti-glare feature which prevents any unnecessary glare becoming a hindrance in sight. Moving over to the side profile of the car, Ford Endeavour Alterrain boasts of side-steppers made up of aluminium, scuff plates for front as well as rear gates, sporty roof rails and not to forget the 16 inch alloy wheels. Finally to the rear part of the car, Ford has done us all a justice by giving a perfect set of uplifted tail-lights of a different combination along with a tire compartment which makes an aggressive finishing to the car altogether. The traditional rear ladder has also been provided which goes up from the back of the car.

Ford Endeavour Interior

Not only does the exterior take away all the glam but the interiors are no less. Ford Endeavour comes with a grand dashboard which is dual toned and the colours used for the interiors are quite user-friendly. Everything from the upholstery to the instrument cluster, gear knob, steering wheel, seats, cabin ambience have been taken into account and we must say we’re pretty much impressed by what Ford has to offer as its interior features.

Comfort and Convenience

The seating arrangement in the car is pretty comfortable owing to the cushion and the material of fabric used by Ford to do up the interiors. There is ample space for a family to comfortably settle and more space can be made up as the rear seats are foldable. This makes more boot space for extra luggage. Storage compartments have been made available throughout the cabin. Air-conditioning is powerful and air vents have been put up all around the cabin in order to make sure that no part of the cabin has a different temperature.
