The new Endeavour has certainly raised the bar high in its segment when it comes to features. In fact, the Endy ruthlessly smashes its rivals as an overall package.
In the full-size, body-on-frame premium SUV segment, rugged looks and off-road ability was usually prioritised over creature comfort. However, things have changed now. The Endeavour has not only become more potent off the tarmac, it also offers luxury equivalent to an executive sedan. Here’s a list of five thoughtful niceties provided by the American automaker that will make ownership of your Endeavour unparalleled.
Ford SYNC 3 Infotainment System
India has the world's largest youth population and they are unequivocally tech-savvy. And a lot of young buyers are capable of buying premium and luxury cars in India of late. So Ford has left no stone unturned in this area and the Endeavour comes with Ford's latest, state-of-the-art SYNC 3 infotainment system. It was developed from ground-up by the automaker itself and features a touch-based layout. It offers latest smartphone compatibility with support for both Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto, which means owners can sync their smartphones to the vehicle’s infotainment system, such as Apple/Google Maps, messages, music and calls, among others.
Semi Auto Parallel Park Assist
This big fat American SUV finds a parking spot by itself and then steers itself in as well. How cool is that? The Endeavour comes with Ford’s ‘Semi Auto Parallel Park Assist,’ which is basically a semi-autonomous parking tech. At the press of a button, the Endeavour looks for a parallel parking spot (which is mostly the scene in our crowded metros) in its vicinity and when it finds one, all you have to do is control the throttle, gears and brake, while it steers itself in on its own, quite astonishingly!
Terrain Management System
This is certainly the USP of the new Endeavour and a boon for its ardent off-road enthusiasts. It comes with segment-first driving modes – Ford’s Terrain Management System – coupled with its four-wheel-drive system. By just twisting a circular dial, one can switch between – Normal, Snow, Sand and Rock driving modes. It provides you with maximum possible traction and stability according to the type of surface chosen. Besides the Terrain Management System, the Endy also comes with a whopping 800mm of water-wading capacity; it rides 225mm above the ground and features an approach and departure angles of 30 and 25 degrees, respectively. Additionally, a lot of relevant information is reflected on its analog-digital instrument cluster. All these things make sure that you have a rugged vehicle with go-anywhere capability!
Electric Panoramic Sunroof
There are SUVs in the Endeavour’s price range that come with sunroof, but none of them offer a panoramic one. The Endeavour comes with a huge panoramic sunroof; in fact, 50 per cent of the roof is made up of glass! Thanks to that, the cabin is filled with a lot of natural light making it as airy as it can get. Also, it helps one to enjoy the surroundings when the Endy is feeling at home, amidst nature. Only the front half of the panoramic sunroof opens.
Active Noise Cancellation
Like all the crazy noise cancelling headphones, the Endeavour also comes with an active noise cancellation tech. And interestingly it is standard across all the variants of the SUV. Similar to your headphones, the Endeavour has three microphones continuously analysing the engine noise filtering through the cabin and then with the help of speakers, the system produces an anti-sound wave to keep the cabin as quiet as it can get.
