Ford Endura: Pricing and features
Ford’s replacement for its popular Territory is set to hit showroom floors by the end of the year.
The Ford Endura will join the brand’s SUV range as an urban-biased large SUV.
Three trim levels will be available including base model Trend, sporty ST-Line and range-topping Titanium, each getting standard safety equipment such as AEB with pedestrian detection, lane keep assist, roll-stability control, evasive steer assist and traffic sign recognition.
A reverse camera as well as front and rear parking sensors come standard across the range.
When it arrives, the Endura will be a five seater powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-charged diesel drivetrain producing 140kW of power and 400Nm of torque.
Paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Endura will be available in front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive.
Ford Australia President Kay Hart says the Endura is unlike anything the brand has offered before in terms of equipment, design and sophistication.
“It builds on our extensive SUV portfolio, which now spans from the urban-friendly EcoSport, family sized Escape and the off-road capable Everest,” says Hart.
Standard features across the range include an 8.0-inch infotainment system with SYNC 3i which includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation and digital radio with a nine-speaker audio system.
SYNC 3i has a Traffic Management Channel and allows app compatibility with Spotify and WAZE.
Optional extras for the Trend include 19-inch alloy wheels ($1000), as well as a glass panoramic sunroof ($2500) with power-operated blind which is also offered in the ST-Line.
Available in ST-Line and Titanium is a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen Play audio system for $1000.
Base model Trend gets rain sensing wipers, LED headlights and taillights, rear tinted windows and roof rails as standard, with pricing starting at $44,990 (plus on road costs) in front-wheel-drive and $48,990 (plus on road costs) in all-wheel-drive.
Push button start, dual-zone climate control, 10-way power adjustable drivers seat and interior lighting with theatre dimming also come standard for the Trend.
The more athletic ST-Line Endura will get sports tuned suspension, blacked-out grille, door frame, belt line and roof rails, a body kit and 20-inch alloy wheels with gloss black inserts and a handsfree operated tailgate.
Inside, the ST-Line gets heated and cooled seats for the driver and passenger, rear cargo net and blind.
Top-of-the-line Titanium spec will come with Bi-LED headlights, 20-inch alloy wheels, dual panel glass panoramic sunroof and chrome finish headlamp bezels.
Seat trim is micro-perforated leather-accented, while rear seat passengers also get heated seats.
Titanium pricing starts at $63,990 (plus on roads) in front-wheel drive, while all-wheel-drive will cost an extra $4000.
