New Ford Endeavour 2.2 Titanium: First Look Video

The first thing that strikes you about the new Ford Endeavour is the fact that its maker didn’t attempt to ‘soften’ or ‘sharpen’ the SUV down through its design. It’s remains pretty much true to the typical SUV idea. Increasing number of modern SUVs are jettisoning the traditional ‘square’ appeal and are moving either towards ductile shapes or sharp, edgy appearances. Such vehicles don’t necessarily feel SUV enough. The Endeavour does — every bit so.
At a time when the world of passenger cars is rapidly moving towards monocoque construction, it’s not a frequent affair to come across a vehicle on ladder frame. Part of the Endeavour’s appeal lies in the fact that it retains the body-on-frame layout. It’s quite a large vehicle, measuring just shy of 5 metres at 4892mm. That, anyone would assume, should mean big space in the cabin, and it’s mostly true — save for the 3rd row seats which are best suited for little kids. There’s more than adequate space in the middle row (that offers 60-40 split ratio) and the seats are large. So, there’s sufficient thigh and back support, and the space for the feet is also ample.
