In the Australian market, the Endeavour (Everest) offers two diesel engine options paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Both engines come with a four-wheel-drive (4WD) setup. The smaller engine matches the Fortuner’s diesel unit in performance, while the larger V6 Ford diesel engine outperforms the Fortuner’s diesel engine.

The Toyota Fortuner offers both petrol and diesel engine options with manual and automatic transmissions. However, it only features a 4WD setup with its diesel engine.


In terms of features, the 2024 Endeavour (Australia-spec) excels beyond the current India-spec Fortuner. It boasts a 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 12.4-inch digital driver’s display, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, dual-zone climate control, wireless phone charger, ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, 10-way power-adjustable driver seat with memory function, heated and ventilated front seats, and a 12-speaker B&O sound system.

On the other hand, the Fortuner offers an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wired Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, wireless phone charger, dual-zone climate control, 11-speaker JBL sound system, and ventilated front seats. It lacks features like a fully digital driver’s display, heated front seats, wireless connectivity, and a sunroof.

One noteworthy aspect is that the previous iteration of the Ford Endeavour in India was well-equipped and featured amenities superior to the Fortuner, including a powered tailgate, 8-way powered driver and front passenger seats, active noise cancellation, and a panoramic sunroof.


In terms of passenger safety, the Endeavour (Australia-spec) takes the lead. It is equipped with 9 airbags, 3-point seatbelts for all passengers, dynamic stability control (DSC), tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), auto headlamps, front and rear parking sensors, and a 360-degree camera. Additionally, it features ADAS (advanced driver assistance system) functionalities like adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, autonomous emergency braking, and park assist.

The Toyota Fortuner in India comes with 7 airbags, vehicle stability control (VSC), traction control, brake assist, and hill assist. However, it lacks a 360-degree camera and ADAS features.


Ex-showroom Price

  • Ford Endeavour (converted from AUD to INR): Rs 29.4 lakh to Rs 43.27 lakh
  • Toyota Fortuner: Rs 33.43 lakh to Rs 51.44 lakh

The mentioned prices are for the Australian-spec Ford Everest. If launched in India, the Endeavour would likely be more expensive due to import taxes. Even if Ford resumed operations in India for local assembly, additional costs would be passed on to buyers. However, to remain competitive, Ford must price the Endeavour in the same range as the Fortuner, approximately around Rs 50 lakh (ex-showroom).
