Ford Endeavour Facelift

The latest iteration of Ford’s flagship, the Endeavour, has been spotted testing in the country for the very first time suggesting the SUV’s imminent India launch. Unveiled in May 2018, the 2019 Endeavour facelift went on sale in Thailand in July 2018 and is expected to arrive here in early 2019.

The 2019 Endeavour looks largely similar to the existing model save for some small changes in the form of a larger three-slat front grille, updated fog lamp housing and slightly revised bi-xenon headlights. On the inside, it is expected to get Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with push-button start as standard.

With the facelift, Ford had also introduced advanced safety features like autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and pedestrian and vehicle detection on the Thai-spec car but they are not expected to come to India.
