2016 Ford Endeavour has everything it needs to dethrone its rivals and is backed up Ford’s assurance of affordable ownership and fuss free experience
Ford in India has been always known for the small cars and the compact sedan that it has offered. The Figo the Classic and now the Aspire have all the best products of their time. The value proposition, the feature set, the engine and transmission options and promise of strong ownership experience that it is offering. Ways of that include offering cheap service bills and cars high on dynamics, economy and performance. However, Ford has been always offering a large SUV which has been cult of its time. However time went by and lack of update made it not so pick of the bunch.

Ford came back with the new Endeavour and has almost snatched the same position due to the same strategy by Fortuner, that is not updating its car. Endeavour had a great pricing till date but it has gone up considerably. We have more details on the same as Ford updates the value quotient by introducing the Sync3 System.
