The next-gen Ford Endeavour SUV has been revealed in the form of the Everest concept at the 2014 Bangkok motor show. The first images of this concept had originally been released in August last year.
The Ford Endeavour's face is dominated by a bold, chrome-heavy, EcoSport-like trapezoidal grille, and swept-back headlights that sprout outwards from it. Beneath this, a matte silver skid plate livens up the bumper and extends into the fog lamp housings. On the sides, there are meaty wheel arches, chunky chrome-capped wing mirrors, and a faux vent just behind the front wheel arch. The window line rises subtly to meet a wraparound rear windscreen, beneath which sits a pair of wide tail-lamps in sculpted niches, joined by a chrome strip. The overall look of the SUV appears to be wider and more planted than the current Ford Endeavour's tall, boxy shape.
In production form, the new Ford Endeavour will take on the likes of the Toyota Fortuner and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport when it comes to India. It will continue to use a body on ladder frame chassis with a seven-seat layout, and is expected to be powered by 2.2-litre and 3.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engines, with two- or four-wheel-drive and the option of manual and automatic gearboxes.
“The Ford Everest Concept shows the bold new direction that we envision for a mid-size, seven-seat SUV that has been designed for ASEAN and global markets,” said Matt Bradley, president of Ford ASEAN. He also stated that the production car will be manufactured in Thailand, but as with the current car, the next Ford Endeavour is likely to be assembled from CKD kits in India, so there's a chance Ford will price it very competitively.
