2015 Ford Endeavour


The Endeavour is the name used in India for the Australian Ford Everest.

The Eversest has never been sold in the US. The new one will be based on the same platform as the new Ranger (also not sold in the US).
So it's a truck.

But the picture above was taken in the US. So now everyone thinks Ford will bring the Everest/Endeavour over here.

Who knows. I mean their line up is pretty crowded. Escape, Edge, Explorer.
I don't see room for anything else.

Do you?

Room for something else? Sure. This is body on frame, and there is a market for that, but more importantly if I were looking in this market this looks like something that would draw my interest, whereas the Escape is rather small and cheap feeling, the Edge is nice inside but still cheap, the Explorer looks stupid and is large but not roomy, and the Expedition is a monster truck. This Endeavor looks practical but also fun.

There's plenty of room for this as a Lincoln. Leave the FWDs to Ford.

This is the spiritual successor to the Explorer. Since the current one is now 1 of 2 Taurus Wagons. There's room though...maybe:

Escape-C Segment
Edge-D-Seg
Explorer-Small E
Flex-Large E-Seg
Expedition <-------Serving the large SUV RWD Crowd
Expedition EL <---Same


Although there is more room at the bottom for the EcoSport.

The vehicles above are FWD with the option of AWD. But most people don't care what wheels move the car, so Lincoln can have this, the MKC, the MKX, and the Navigator.

Of course there's room. The Edge is a station wagon. The Escape is smaller. The only potential conflict is with the explorer. While the Explorer sells very well, it doesn't fit the need for those who want a real truck. This would compete very well with the 4 Runner. And this looks about 1000X better.

Ford already had enough CUVs before they had the Explorer go from truck based to car based to replace the Freestyle/Taurus X. Too bad they didn't bring this over and call it the Explorer to being with. This with the Ecoboost 6 would be pretty fast.
