The renowned carmaker prepares a facelift for the Ranger-based 2018 Ford Endeavour. We used on models that are designed for specific markets and this is one of them. It is closely related to the Australian-market Everest, sharing most of the design characteristics. Both models are based on the famous Ranger pickup truck. Since the popular truck has received a facelift recently, it now turns for its SUV derivate. While the new Everest is already available, new 2018 Endeavour will come during this year.
We still don’t know the exact date, but various reports suggest summer months. In any case, there are a lot of changes to come. Naturally, most of them will be visual. The new version is about to get an improved styling, especially at the front. Some interior changes could come as well. On the other side, things under the hood are going to remain the same.
2018 Ford Endeavour facelift changes
The company prepares various changes for this facelift. The 2018 Ford Endeavour will feature changes in many aspects. Of course, visual appearance is a priority. So, engineers didn’t focus too much on mechanical improvements. The current version dates from 2015, so we can consider it pretty much fresh when it comes to engines, chassis, and similar things. So, performances and capabilities are not a problem for sure.
On the other side, visual appearance is definitely a decisive factor for the most of buyers. Everyone wants to have an attractive-looking car. The 2018 Ford Endeavour will come with several improvements. The Ranger pickup came with changes recently and we can expect similar modifications for this occasion as well. The focus is on the front end, but other areas will undergo some changes as well. We could see some changes on the inside as well.
2018 Ford Endeavour exterior changes
As we already mentioned, the focus is on the styling. So, the 2018 Ford Endeavour will come with various visual improvements. Of course, most of them will be at the front, where we expect to see something similar to what we saw on the updated Ranger. So, the biggest novelty will probably be the new grille design. Besides new grille, areas like front bumper and headlights. On the side, some reports suggest new side mirrors, but we could also see a new wheels design. Finally, rear end could receive some novelties as well. We could see new taillights or some changes on the rear bumper for example.
On the inside, we don’t expect such intense modifications. Some smaller tweaks on the dashboard are possible, but the core will remain the same. Also, expect few additional standard features in the 2018 Ford Endeavour.
2018 Ford Endeavour engines (two options)
This is the aspect where we definitely won’t see any changes. The 2018 Ford Endeavour will continue with the same powertrain. There are two diesel engines in the offer for this SUV. The base model features a familiar 2.2-liter unit, which delivers around 160 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.
Still, an optional 3.2-liter engine is probably a better choice. This engine is good for about 200 horses and 350 pound-feet of torque. Both engines could be paired with either manual or automatic transmission.
2018 Ford Endeavour release date and price
The 2018 Ford Endeavour will come during 2018. We don’t know a more precise date, though some reports suggest new model will come in the summer. Prices should remain the same, so the base model should cost around 38.000 dollars.
