      Cool Booked & now Waiting!!!

      As the family grows and after living in USA for past 4 year, love for Ford cars and their massive look started growing in me. I did not like the previous version of endeavour and was waiting for a proper facelift to the entire looks. After driving Ford Expedition, Ford F150, Ford Explorer, i was telling my wife if at all these kind off cars being released in India, it would be awesome. This happened in 2015! fast forward to 2016 - saw ford launched fresh look endeavour. Man, it was love at first sight. As i had love at first sight on Toyota Fortuner Generation 1. I did not have any plans to come to India until 2020, so expected so many cars will come and go, lets see if there is anything as good as this ford endeavour during that time.

      Fast forward to 2018, here i am in India. As family wished, thought of taking break and came back. This time i am going to be here for long time and no plans to go back! Enough of staying away from family and missing all occasions!

      Moment landed in India, 2 days gone in Jet lag. 3rd day discussion with dad on Ford endeavour . There comes the straight answer from dad, NO

      He asked why endeavour. I knew this question will come from him. He asks me to buy Toyota Innova

      Later in order to avoid disappointing him with straight answer of NO like what he did, i remain silent and told - lets shortlist from these cars and see which is best.

      After shortlisting, one car remain in the list... and it is Ford endeavour. Man, i know to talk and mesmerize

      Finally, it is 3.2 Titanum Ford Endevour in Absolute Black! counting days...

      Watch out this space to know more on Final price, cars considered, delivery experience, ownership experience, loan, etc..

      Ah putting me in spot ah! No offense to anyone who owns or likes the previous version though,

      I loved the first version of endeavour with butchy look. But when ford changed the headlight to curve version, some what i found car looks to be feminine one and also version 1 and version 2 of endeavour felt more like moving bedroom than car, may be due to its look. Which again differs based on person to person.

      Current version was a perfect all rounder, even though tail light could have been better. But overall look wise, impressed!

      I wasn't a fan of prev version of Endy. The new one is class. Boy, even the new TFort is lovely. Good choice bro. When is delivery expected. This car reminds me of your Sonata days.

      3rd row seating and ceiling height in 3rd row was very less compared to Endy.
