How is the performance of Ford Endeavor?
By: Japendra on 16 may 2014
Ford Endeavour is in Indian Market since quite long time and still has high demand.Its a well proven SUV. It is highly stable in high speed driving and even off roading.Its available in both 4X2 and 4X4 versions.A speed of over 100kmph can be acheived in very few seconds.
When it comes to performance and handling, Ford Endeavour behaves like bulky beast. The SUV loves to run straight and its weight do bothers the drive when it is hurled around corners. This 5 metre long and 2-ton weighing SUV can do offroading in 4X4 mode, but it performs better if driven on straight roads. Both the 2.5 Ltr. and 3.0 Ltr. engines are reasonably powerful and generate enough torque. On the mileage front, this SUV can give around 10-12 Kmpl in 4X2 mode and just above 8 Kmpl on 4X4 mode. So, better use the 4X4 mode only on difficult terrains or for offroading.
Without any doubt, the all new Ford Endeavour backs up a premium level of performance. The presence of a powerful engine is really a true blessing that overcasts any sort of hindrance that comes in its way. The fact that this car has an automatic gearbox is an added benefit, for not every car will provide such a wonderful feature. Even the 4x4 mechanism is really noteworthy for it comes as a decent offering. The handling factor is somewhat average; but then again, it should be remembered that this SUV is an old-school car, and hence, any complacency is justifiable.
