Ford Endeavour manual variants relaunched post GST with reduced pricing
Ford India has re-launched manual variants of the Endeavour SUV, which were reported to be discontinued last month.
The new Ford Endeavour was launched back in Jan 2016, with 2 manual transmission and 4 automatic transmission options. Last month it was reported that Ford India had silently removed the manual transmission options from the line up.
This was in fact proved right when we checked Ford India site. The Endeavour page no longer shows the manual transmission variants. The variants of new Ford Endeavour which you can now purchase are – 2.2L AT Trend 4×2, 2.2L AT Titanium 4×2, and 3.2L 4×4 AT Titanium.
But now, MyCarHelpline has shared a photo which clearly shows that Ford India in their latest interaction with dealer partners have shared prices of the MT variants as well. In fact, all six variants which were launched back in Jan 2016, will now be on sale. Have a look at the latest prices below.
Ford Endeavour post GST Price
|Model||Price (ex-sh, Delhi)|
|2.2L Trend 4×2 MT||INR 23,68,700|
|2.2L Trend 4×4 MT||INR 25,17,900|
|2.2L Trend 4×2 AT||INR 23,91,200|
|3.2L Trend 4×4 AT||INR 26,15,800|
|2.2L Titanium 4×2 AT||INR 26,95,300|
|3.2L Titanium 4×4 AT||INR 29,59,000|
It is believed that the reduction in prices post GST has led Ford India to relaunch the discontinued models. Thanks to GST, prices have reduced, and the new Ford Endeavour is now on sale in a price range of INR 23.68 lakh to INR 29.59 lakh, ex-Delhi.
Speaking about the Endeavour’s performance in the market – It got off to a decent start. In fact it had a neck to neck sales performance through Jan to Nov 2016. But post Nov 2016, when Toyota launched the new gen Fortuner, sales declined. Ford Endeavour sales stood at just 335 units in the past month as against sales of Toyota Fortuner which stood at 2000 units.
Earlier this month, the facelifted Ford Endeavour was spotted on test. Rumors state that the automaker plans to augment the safety system for this new facelift which could be showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo in Delhi and go on sale thereafter. These cosmetic changes and new safety features could include a redesigned bumper, aggressive front grille and Autonomous Emergency Braking with detection of obstacles via radar and sensors to warn the driver or automatically apply brakes to avoid a crash.
