Of the three vehicles, the Ford Endeavour specifications appear the best because of its excellent ground clearance of 225mm. However, it has a high turning radius of 6.2m that makes it a challenge to drive on narrow city roads. 

Compared to the Ford Endeavour and the Mitsubishi Pajero, the Toyota Fortuner specifications are smaller. However, this vehicle comes with a commanding ground clearance of 220mm. The broader look makes it an awesome-looking vehicle with an authoritative road presence. 

The Mitsubishi Pajero specifications indicate that the vehicle is a tall one with a formidable ground clearance of 215mm. In spite of having a length of 4695mm, this vehicle has one of the best turning radii of 5.6m. 


The Ford Endeavour engine with a displacement capacity of 3.2 litres is mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox with 4X4 AWD. The terrain management system ensures that it can ride over any kind of terrain with absolute ease. 

Toyota is renowned for its high-quality engine. The Toyota Fortuner features a 2.8-litre diesel engine mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. There is a manual transmission variant available as well with the Toyota Fortuner. 

The Mitsubishi Pajero engine is a powerful one with a displacement of 2.5 litres and capable of delivering the power of 178ps and torque of 400Nm. This vehicle works on a Rear Wheel Drive with a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Fuel Economy

The Ford Endeavour mileage is in the range of 11 to 12.5 kmpl. Compared to the Mitsubishi Pajero, it is better, but it pales when you look at the Toyota Fortuner mileage. 

The Toyota Fortuner takes the cake as far as fuel economy is concerned, as one of its five variants is capable of delivering a mileage as high as 14.24kmpl. 

With a performance of 10.77 kmpl, the Mitsubishi Pajero mileage is satisfactory. The 70-litre fuel tank ensures that the vehicle can drive along for more than 700 km on a full load. 

Handling Experience

The Ford Endeavour has different driving modes that make it convenient to handle the roughest of terrain with ease. The new 800mm water wading technology allows the Ford Endeavour to cruise through water-logged roads without any hassle. The automatic variant can touch a maximum speed of 165kmph. Hence, it is a fantastic vehicle to drive on the highways.

The imposing seating position and the different driving modes available on the Toyota Fortuner make it a dream car to handle on any terrain. 

The rally car designing enables the Mitsubishi Pajero to achieve the 100kmph barrier within 12.45 seconds. The low turning radius allows you to manoeuvre the vehicle beautifully through the city roads. 


Each of these three models is excellent in one way or the other. If handling the Ford Endeavour is easy, the Toyota Fortuner gives an excellent mileage performance. Costs wise, the Mitsubishi Pajero appears to be the best bet. The debate can go on.
