Aiming to boost sales during the festive season, Ford will be launching a ‘Sport’ edition of its Endeavour SUV
Ford India has officially teased the Endeavour Sport edition on social media, and confirmed that it is coming soon. It has already started arriving at dealerships, and launch is on 22nd Sep 2020..
While the term ‘Sport’ may indicate towards performance upgrades, don’t expect any such update in the Ford Endeavour Sport. The special edition Endeavour will only get some visual enhancements to make it more attractive and unique for customers. Even the interiors are same as regular Endy.
As compared with standard Endeavour, the Sport edition has several blacked-out elements such as front and rear bumpers, alloy wheels, ORVMs, and roof rails. Another key change is the blacked-out honeycomb grille that replaces the horizontal slats chrome grille of the standard model. Use of chrome has been minimized on Sport edition. Thanks to Youtube channel India Revs, below is the first look video of the new Endeavour Sport.
Ford will also be launching Sport edition in an all-black colour. This is in line with recent trends wherein several other carmakers including Jeep, Tata and Toyota have launched their popular products in black colour options. Although black can adapt to any body type, it looks especially good on SUVs. Black adds that extra bit of dominance and intrigue to SUVs, which is why it is preferred by users.
