Ford India today launched the new 2014 Ford Endeavour at prices starting from Rs. 19.84 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Compared to the outgoing model, the new 2014 Endeavour gets a restyled chrome radiator grille, headlamps and a new Figoesque bumper, fog lamp bezels and a new 16-inch alloy wheels. Additionally, there is a blind spot mirror on the passenger side which improves visibility for the driver and safety.
Changes to the interior includes a new leather seats, touch-enabled STANAV entertainment system with Bluetooth compatibility and reverse parking camera.
