Starting price of the Ford Endeavour has now gone up by Rs 3.81 lakh
It is essentially now offered in two fully loaded trims – Titanium+ and Sport
The Endeavour continues to be powered by a 170hp 2.0L turbo-diesel engine paired to a 10-speed AT gearbox.
2021 Ford Endeavour: variant breakup
The now-discontinued Endeavour Titanium 4x2 variant was retailed in the country for a price of Rs 29.99 lakh. While the Titanium 4x2 variant was Rs 3.81 lakh more affordable than the Titanium+ 4x2 variant, it notably missed out on features such as a panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, 8-way electronically adjustable passenger seat, power-folding third row seat, and one-touch up/down power windows. It also missed out on safety features such as driver knee airbag, front parking sensors with semi-auto parallel park assist, and electronic IRVM.
While the price difference between the Titanium and Titanium+ variants is justified, given the difference in the equipment list, the former certainly kept the Endeavour a lot more accessible and affordable.
Meanwhile, the Titanium+ is a fully loaded trim and comes with all of the above mentioned features. It also gets the 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, hands-free powered tailgate, dual-zone automatic climate control, and connected car tech. The Titanium+ trim is also offered with the option of 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrains.
Lastly, the Sport trim is based on the Titanium+ trim, and as such, comes fully loaded with all the bells and whistles on offer with the Endeavor. It, however, distinguishes itself with certain exterior visual enhancements in black over the standard Titanium+ trim. The Endeavour Sport is solely available with the 4x4 drivetrain and is the top-spec model in the Endeavour line-up.
