Ford released its first Endura five-seat large SUV in December 2018 with a three-grade line-up.
The entry-level Trend, mid-range ST-Line and flagship Titanium came with front-wheel drive as standard, but all-wheel-drive system could be optioned.
All variants were exclusively paired to an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission with paddle-shifters.
The Endura was exclusively motivated by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine that produced 140kW of power at 3500rpm and 400Nm of torque from 2000 to 3000rpm.
Claimed fuel consumption on the combined cycle test was 6.7 litres per 100 kilometres when the Endura was fitted with 18-inch alloy wheels, while its braked towing capacity was 2000kg.
The ST-Line added sports suspension, a black trapezoidal grille, chrome foglight bezels, a bodykit, black exterior trim (including roof rails) and 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 245/50 tyres to visually stand out.
Advanced driver-assist systems extended to autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keep and steering assist, adaptive cruise control, high-beam assist, traffic sign recognition with intelligent speed assist, a reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, hill-start assist and tyre pressure monitoring, plus seven airbags.
