New Ford Everest or Endeavour - When Will It Launch?

After a brief halt, Ford Motor Company is all set to make its re-entry in the Indian market. The company will take the CBU route to first introduce its global products including EVs and SUVs. If all goes according to the media reports, the new Ford Everest will mark Ford's return to India. 

New Ford Everest Launch Details

Yes, you heard it right, the new-gen Ford Everest is most likely to be launched in the country in 2025. The new SUV will initially be launched as a CBU (Completely Built-Up Unit), as Ford is aiming to make full use of the Government's 2500-unit import rule. The Government of India has allowed automakers to import 2,500 units without going through a homologation process.

Ford Motor Company will have to upgrade the factory for local assembly of its cars. The Toyota Fortuner is currently dominating the large SUV segment. The new Everest will only give more options to SUV buyers. In some cities, the on-road price of the Fortuner's top variant has already crossed Rs 60 lakh. A fully imported Endeavour or Everest is most likely to cost less or similar to the Fortuner. 

If media reports are to be believed, the new SUV won't be called the new Endeavour in India. Instead, the new SUV is most likely to be called the Ford Everest in India. This strategy will help Ford Motor Company to save money which in other cases, would go into localisation of new badges, logos and nameplates. 

New Ford Everest Styling

The new gen Ford Everest styling is completely different from the older Endeavour. The styling is inspired by the new F-150 Raptor, featuring a new 3D radiator grille with vertical slats, new dual-pod projector LED headlamps with stylish C-shaped LED DRLs, a wider air-intake and a new fog lamp housing. 

The side profile has flat & box design with rugged styling elements. It rides on big 20-inch alloy wheels. The rear design is simple and less busy, featuring C-shaped LED tail-lights, a roof-mounted spoiler and high-mounted brake light. 

New Ford Everest Interior

The new-gen Ford Everest has a newly designed interior that has more features and premium touches. The SUV has an all-new black interior scheme and has leather upholstery for seats, steering and gear lever. It is packed with a vertical 12-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, which supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, voice assist, etc. Other features include a 12.3-inch digital instrument console, a panoramic sunroof, automatic air-conditioning, electrically adjustable driver's seat and many more. 

Engine Options

The new Ford Everest is available in 3 engine options - a 170hp, 2.0L turbo diesel, a 207hp, 2.0L Bi-Turbo diesel and a 247hp, 3.0L turbo diesel. All engines are offered with a 10-speed automatic gearbox. While the lower-spec models are available in 4x2 and 4x4 drive layouts, the 3.0L V6 engine comes in a single 4x4 drive configuration. Ford is most likely to introduce a fully-loaded variant of the Everest in our market.
