Traces of similarities can be seen in 2015 Endeavour and Everest concept. A part of Ford’s new design philosophy the SUV gets a hexagonal front grille in the front. Sculpted design further enhances the outer appearance of the vehicle. For improved off-road capability and ruggedness the new Endeavour comes equipped with frame chassis. Contrary to the current version that is fitted with leaf spring rear suspension layout, 2015 Endeavour houses an independent rear suspension setup. This in turn improves drivability of the SUV.

The SUV is also likely to come fitted with Terrain Response four wheel drive system. Power is expected to come from 2.2 litre and a 3.0 litre, four cylinder diesel mills. Lower variants are likely to be synchronized to five-speed manual gearbox while the high end trims are expected to be equipped with automatic transmission. Ford Endeavour facelift will be introduced as a completely knocked down unit, assembling will be done locally at the company’s manufacturing unit located in Chennai.
