Which is better among Ford Endeavour Automatic and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport?
By: Diwakar on 24 may 2014
Ford Endeavour and Mitsubishi Pajero, both are the luxury SUV and are reigning on the Indian roads since a very long time. They are the two who have raised this market in India and after many facelifts and variants these two have still a lot to show off. Pajero being the more rugged one, is smaller in length and a bit higher and wider. Engines are the same 2.5L diesel powered. But Pajero manages to squeeze out 176bhp power and 400Nm torque which is greater as compared to Endeavour's 141bhp and 330Nm. Economy is justified by these specs, giving Endavour the lead. Costing wise Pajero's basic version is equivalent to Endeavour's top end model but pajero does not have that much variants and thus offers nearly the same features, except it is 4 wheel drive from the starting. Automatic climate control, airbags, leather upholstery and alloy wheels are present across both of them.
Ford Endeavour and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, both are big and expensive SUVs. Plus, both are luxurious too. I always wanted to buy a big but budget-friendly luxury SUV. For people who can't afford SUVs from high-end luxury brands like Audi and Mercedes, Ford Endeavour is a right choice. I found Endeavour better than Pajero. Exterior design of Endeavour is wow, while Pajero has an ordinary design. Plus, Ford cars are more reliable because of their good time in India for so many years. Hence, it is definitely better than the Pajero.
Both the choices of yours are good and similar in terms of many aspects. Ford Endeavour is a luxury SUV model and its face lifted version was launched in the country with myriad of interior and exterior updates. However, its technical specifications and other features remain almost the same. This SUV comes in 3 variants with two engine options, 2.5L and 3.0 liter. On the other hand, Mitsubishi Pajero is a high performance SUV and recently rolled out with a slightly modified version but has only a single engine option and that is a 2.5L diesel engine option. The exteriors look of the car gets a complete new design; however, its interiors have been retained without any tweak.
