The 2019 Ford Endeavour is a facelift and the specs have not changed at all. The car gets two engine options, 2.2 Litre TDCi and 3.1 Litre TDCi diesel engines. The 2.2 Litre engine options now gets the option of a manual gearbox with the Titanium trim.
Let’s move on to what other changes have been done to the car.
The car gets slightly redesigned bumpers and the headlights now have a smoky look, the grille on the car is new and come with a Trapezoidal shape chrome plated design. The front and rear bumpers have skid plates attached by default to protect the car’s underbody from being damaged in off-road conditions. The ORVMs have integrated puddle lamps that makes it easier to get in and out of the car in dark conditions. The alloys have a new design with big 18-inch tyres wrapped around them. The side and rear of the car see no changes. There is a new color option for the Endeavour, Diffused Silver, other colours include Sunset Red, Diamond White, Absolute Black and Moondust Silver.
Many things have changed in the interior department. The first thing is the dual-tone upholstery then comes the new SYNC 3 interface which nice and it is good to see that it is not floating in the middle anymore and is rather integrated into the dashboard nicely. The instrument cluster is good and presents a lot of information, with the speaker system sounding very good. There are many buttons scattered around the cabin, but serve their purpose very well and we have no complaints regarding that. The push star-stop is a very good addition, there is an extra knee airbag for the driver.
The car also gets a panoramic sunroof which covers up about 50% of the roof space. The seats include fold-flat second-row and power-fold third-row which instantly flattens the third-row seats at the touch of a button. The third-row seats still have very little space and only children can easily sit on those comfortably.
Engine & Ride Handling
Nothing much has changed in terms of ride quality, it drives exactly the same as before and has the same handling characteristics. You can take it off-road as easily as you can ride it on paved roads. The 2.2 Liter manual gearbox engine is good enough for daily commutes, long tours or off-roading but the 3.2 Litre engine is on a whole different level, it is the biggest engine of it’s class and can touch triple digits from zero very quickly. The 2.2 Litre engine produces 158 bhp of power and 358 Nm of torque, the 3.2 Litre engine produces 197 bhp of power and 470 Nm of torque.
The ride quality is very good on the Ford Endeavour and produces very minimal NVH levels, the suspension is able to handle off-road and on-road conditions very easily.
Overall, the Ford Endeavour is a very good car and an all-rounder, you can commute with it or take it on a weekend getaway in the hills it can do both effortlessly.
