Reports also suggest that the new powertrain on the BS6 Endeavour will replace both the engines currently offered on the SUV.

The reason stated for the discontinuation of the two current engines is the significant hike in prices the Endeavour could receive. Updating the two current engines could see prices of the Endeavour being hiked by around Rs 3 to 4 lakhs.

The introduction of the new slightly smaller displacement engine will allow the company to keep the prices of the Endeavour competitive. The current model of the Ford Endeavour is priced between Rs 27 lakh to Rs 34 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi).
