DIESEL GAME CHANGER
ALL-NEW FORD 2.0-LITRE ECO BLUE ENGINE
At the heart of the 2020 Ford Endeavour sits an advanced New 2.0L EcoBlue diesel engine, that delivers an unrivalled package of fuel efficiency, performance and refinement.
The Bharat Stage VI compliant engine will be more fuel-efficient, with reduced emissions. The EcoBlue engine continues the legacy of Endeavour's benchmark fun-to-drive credentials, delivering 170 PS peak power and 420 Nm peak torque. The EcoBlue engine with 4X2 driveline will return segment-best 13.90 Kmpl while 4X4 variant will deliver an outstanding fuel efficiency of 12.4 Kmpl, benefiting customers with up to 14% improvement in fuel efficiency.
The EcoBlue engine offers a 20 per cent improvement in low-end torque from the outgoing 2.2L TDCi engine to enhance Endeavour's ability to tackle every challenge the road may throw from delivering efficiency on a daily commute to conquering challenging terrain on weekends.
Ford EcoBlue engine is also more refined and quieter with a 4-decibel reduction in idle noise.
Building on the industry-leading performance and technology of Ford's award-winning EcoBoost petrol engines, the Ford EcoBlue engine's all-new design features multiple innovations that reduce friction, contributing to an improvement in fuel efficiency, including:
A 10 mm offset crank design that minimizes piston side-load, reducing rubbing forces against the cylinder walls
Minimized crankshaft bearing diameters
A belt-in-oil design for the camshaft and oil pump drive belts
An optimized valve-train and an all-new single-piece camshaft module
A new mirror-image porting design for the integrated inlet manifold that precisely controls the flow of air into the cylinders
The new engine will use Diesel Exhaust Fluid commonly referred to as AdBlue®. Automatically injected into the vehicle's exhaust system, this fluid will help reduce nitrogen oxide emissions.
10-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WITH SELECTSHIFT®
2020 Ford Endeavour will also be the only vehicle in India to offer a 10-speed automatic transmission, the first-of-its-kind anywhere in the world, that delivers responsive, faster and facilitates smoother acceleration in all driving conditions.
The 10-Speed architecture reduces the gaps in available power & acceleration between gears providing smoother acceleration response.
Created with high-strength steel, aluminium alloys and composites to optimize durability and weight, the new age transmission translates to better acceleration, responsiveness and performance, thanks to a wide-ratio span and optimized gear spacing. Progressive Range Select or SelectShift® is another first for the segment in the 2020 Ford Endeavour.
The innovative feature gives drivers the ability to lock gears in the desired range to deliver an engaging and more controlled drive experience especially in challenging driving situations such as slippery roads or steep off-roading conditions.
FORD PASS TM
Apart from the attractive introductory price, the 2020 Endeavour will offer Ford's globally-renowned mobility and connectivity solution FordPassTM at no additional cost.
Ford Endeavour owners will be able to perform several vehicle operations -- like starting, stopping, locking or unlocking the vehicle, know remaining fuel levels & distance to empty & locating their vehicle remotely, via the FordPassTM app. All variants of 2020 Ford Endeavour will come with a factory-fitted, cloud-connected device that will communicate with vehicle owners in real-time via the FordPassTM smartphone application.
