Ford India launched the Endeavour in 2016 and offered features and technologies, unlike its rivals. The Endeavour from Ford comes with the option of two types of powertrains: 2.2-litre TDCi and 3.2-litre TDCi diesel units.
While the 2.2-litre diesel unit is paired either with the 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox, the 3.2-litre unit comes mated to the 6-speed automatic gearbox.
The Titanium variant of the Ford Endeavour though comes mated only with the 6-speed automatic gearbox.
