Ford Endeavour vs Toyota Fortuner : Compare Prices, Reviews & Features
More Photos | Video
Few SUVs command as much respect as the Ford Endeavour. It's big, has got seven seats and can actually handle the rough stuff, unlike some of its more soft-road based competitors. But it now has competition in the form of the Toyota Fortuner - the one SUV that has given it sleepless nights across South East Asia.

The Fortuner is built on the IMV platform, that also houses the Innova. Despite its body-on-ladder antecedents, the Fortuner like the Innova is car-like to drive. It's also got the more powerful engine here - a 3.0-litre engine diesel pumping out 168 bhp versus the Ford Endeavour's 154.5 bhp. The new facelift on the Endeavour also means that the larger 3.0-litre engine comes with a 5-speed auto, while the Fortuner makes do with a 5-speed manual. Fret not, an automatic is bound for India too in the coming months.

On the inside, the Endeavour has more space, but the Fortuner is more comfortable. The seats are well bolstered and don't give you the truck seat feel of the Endeavour. The third row is a bit cramped, but it's easy to get in and out of them. Where the Endeavour tends to feel imposing, the Fortuner makes do with good on-road presence. It also feels easy to drive and live with. Price wise, the Fortuner may lose out on a bit, but we think it's worth the extra money to splurge on the big T and is our comprehensive winner here.

Endeavour is the real KING. Interiors of fortuner is same like Innova and it really sucks spending more than 2 million to buy it. Endeavour has more space, power, fuel efficiency, features. Better go for Endeavour, it gives you the Royal look.

No any comparision with others of ford Endeavour 4x2 OR 4x4. Using Ford Endeavour 4x2 for last 2 years & just booked 4x4. FORD is FORD & is like a lion & highly impressive, sturdy in all respect. Its having high performance on road & off the road.

we tried to run the fortuner and everest on a river test, guess who was the victor here? who else but the ford everest/endeavour. need i say more about the power and durability after this test.then why is fortuner the best for the rest, well the marketing ploy of toyota just dyuped the people thinking fortuner is the best,kudos to the toyota marketing people, to back my clain look at how fortuner are sold under 10,000 km at a swcond hand car dealers.hardly you can find a everest/endeavour on salw but if you do average km you will see in the odo meter is 100k km. you do the math. now you will understand why everest/endeavour, is my choice and so are the thousand of silent owners.

I have been driving a Endevour (4x4) for last six years, its an excellent vehicle, excellent off road capibility. Looking forward to buy a new SUV ... but not a Fortuner... any way
  Posted by Kapil kumar at 12th January,2011
1 There is no doubt that Fortuner seems to be very heavy truck so most of the people attracted very easily about it but the very bad thing about Fortuner is its interior is very similar as Innova and the price is just double so company should thing about it and second thing its third row very congested and mileage is very- very poor. 2 About Endeavour no doubt that its much better than Fortuner as it has better pick better and easy handling and the unique thing it has very good road grip and fuel efficiency and about 4*4 you will feel like the king of SUV but company should pay attention about its interior as still its not very different from 2006 model At last my friends the think which make you allure it’s not necessary that its may be gold so according to Indian road Ford Endeavour is the king of all SUV of this range. So my vote to Endeavour.

Hello friends....I have driven both the Ford endeavor and Toyota Fortuner. Qualities of Fortunar 1. Car like easy drive 2. Very comfortable (Third seats are very bad) 3. Good look (But not Royal) 4. Inside is good but it is just a Innova 5. engine sound just like Innova. 6. All time 4x4 system gives (Dont u think that it is a waste of fuel) Endeavour qualities -- 1. Refined interior 2. More mileage 3. More space 4. Royal and imposing look 5. More power 6. Many technology (fortunar lacs it) 7. Comparatively less price. 8. Better torque 9. Very good brakes 10. Good resale value.. Yes I accept that Our Endy is little bit less comfortable than fortunar So, anyone who want to buy a SUV in the range should do to Ford Endy.. One thing more I have no idea about Pajero..so first u should take a test drive of Pajero also. And If you can wait for 2011 end, Mahindra is launching a very Giant and Royal SUV (Code name W201)...I think we should wait for that. Its probable price would be in be

  Posted by Rohan Raut at 14th August,2010
I've driven both the Ford endeavor 4x4AT and the Toyota Fortuner. I personally feel that from the outside, Fortuner looks good but from inside, its just a Innova. It's engine sound the same like the Innova. When it comes to drive, it drives good on the uneven surfaces easily like most suv's of that price. But the interious id too crapy. One more thing, All time 4x4 system gives a waste of fuel. It has a good torque but not as good as endy even if endy is AT. Endy has a refined interior, lots of space, U feel like you in a limousine. It has a better thrust than the fortuner. It is more comfortable and most importantly, it feels rich. For any one in this dispute, Get yourself the endy if ur going for longer journeys (Fuel efficiency and comforts, good all in one sound system with nav.. real cool) and for fortuner for show off and style(Bad efficiency, Innova interior bad entertainment box, bad last row seats)

I have 4x4 auto endy, a month old car, i am satisfied but when it comes to brake's, i think it is not up to the mark as it has to be,,,in such a big vechile brakes has to be effective which i find very less effective in endy otherwise it is a class product.

Toyota has a pathetic response and a complete indifferent attitude towards the complaints. Even a complaint like poor brake performance is being handled so carelessly. I am a fortuner owner and have been complaining regarding faulty brakes for 03 months now but there is no response.and this is happening in the case of such a serious issue.....shameful.

endeavour.... it takes it anyday... the 3.0l variant is too good fot the fortuner... while others think that have a full time 4x4 is cool, well its not..... it takes too much fuel and that bad for the environment.... and the GPS and the DVD player own the only accessory provided by toyota ( CUP HOLDER).... here we have a touch screen GPS that can do anything needed in a car while there u can have a cup holder opens by the very touch of a button...

major issues with fortuner direct from owners http://www.consumercomplaints.in//complaints/toyota-fortuner-c274526.html even i noticed these brake related issues while doing the test drive of fortuner i think it will take toyota 1-2 years to fix all issues and maybe then it will be worth a buy..and compared to the price fortuner is coming close to 21 L on road, i think i took a better decision of going with the new model of endeavour which has been more or less perfected over the years and offers full value for money what say guys?

I was driving Honda CRV until last oct when i bought a Pajero,which was my dream since childhood times,drive was no way near Honda's smoothness & comforts.....now i tested both fortuner and ford Endvr......fortuner has disappointed me by its finish inside and the so called innova like feel.......i am going to buy a Endvr tomorrow for the looks,interiors,3lts engine,auto transmission and tested raod presence.......i do not believe in toyata is Toyota formula since what fortuner i have seen abroad is diffrent than what we are getting here in india.i think we should wait till they make auto trans fortuner.

I guess fortuner is far more better than endeavour coz due to high mentainace and low resale value of ford cars.....besides toyota is offering 171 ps 3 litre engine while endeavous has just 156 ps 3 litre engine which clearly shows that the power punch of fortuner is greater than endeavour.......so i would go for toyota fortuner.....

Sambhav. How very strange? You say you are a Mechanical from IIT but give no solid technical reasons in favour / against the SUVs. I can see very clearly that the Japs are making a complete fool of us. Giving a featureless SUV for a whopping Two million plus. Just two front airbags for such an expensive piece of equipment. No auto transmission. No bluetooth, No GPS. The list goes on. And anyone who buys a two million worth of car should not give a damn to the outdated "average kya hai" Indian syndrome. If you are looking for "average" then go buy a Maruti. It is a classic case of Exploiting the sentiment of us Indians wanting to get a decent family car for our joint families. Pity so may people have lined up for this outdated model prompting premiums on this glorified piece of metal box container. As far as quality is concerned, remember Ford is not a nerd. That have set examples which others have followed. Parry

The New Endeavour RULES without doubt..pure value for money
  Posted by imran at 15th January,2010
ford endvr is awesome and the best endvr look is royal . endvr rules on fortuner
  Posted by Uttam at 10th January,2010
the endevour is much better than the fortuner because its automatic and it has much much more features than the fortuner....

  Posted by gaurav at 4th January,2010
itis wrong to say that is not good as fortuner im having both cars ........fortuner gives the perfection touch than theendeavour

alright guys. I have been evaluating the Fortuner as well as Endeavour for almost a month now. gone through rigourous test drives, feature demonstrations, price etc. I am BE, MBA and have also assessed Toyota & Ford's India plans, basically covered the corporate risk and my personal choice is ....ENDEAVOUR!!! for its amazing road presence, a true SUV feel, space, interiors, fuel efficieny, automatic 4x4 AND most importantly - Endeavour's proven track record in India. Need I say more?
  Posted by THOMAS SAVRAW at 31st December,2009
I take back my earlier comment! Fortuner is d worst. though i don't own a endeavour or a fortuner my friend owns both, fortuner has loads of problems but the 1.5yr old endeavour still ROCKS!!! along with my 2002 Pajero.
  Posted by ARUN YADAV at 31st December,2009
East or West foruner is d best . u cant compare fortuner(toyota) with endeavour(ford) bcoz toyota speaks & endeavour is like a truck while fortuner is a silent killer. it is the best suv in india i have ever seen. on road it just like as water is flowing. so in last hip hip hurrayyyyyyyyyyyy for fortuner. i love this car very much.
  Posted by martin at 25th December,2009
these two SUV's are the king of the SUV's.
  Posted by Julian Korvinas at 24th December,2009
Ford Endeavour is definitely the best it gives the bold royal look n is embedded with luxurious interiors it has a very powerful engine, pick up is awesome, mileage is also comparatively good. thus fortuner stands no where against endeavour moreover fortuners interiors aint that good as compared to endeavour. but the only defect i found in evdeavour is that it is not soo spacious as compared to tata safari but else evdeavour is the besssssst
  Posted by mohit at 16th December,2009
i go for fortuner coz toyota is better than ford
  Posted by jes at 2nd December,2009
of course i go for ford endeavor.. its the best practical car..the interior of this ford endeavour are very elegant and roomy.. it is also loaded with advanced safety features.. i think this is the best ford model for me.. i have tried before the ford probe and its ford probe parts and im not that much happy with its performance..
  Posted by gurpreet singh dhaliwal at 23rd November,2009
endeavour is the best then other SUV car
  Posted by samar pathak at 19th November,2009
east or west Endevour is the best
  Posted by Abraham George at 15th November,2009
Fortuner gives you luxury, comfort & more milage on drive. Endeavour have more space and pick up compare to Fortuner.. But as SUV I prefer Endeavour because in India this is the only vehicle you can use for off road.
  Posted by ashwin at 14th November,2009
can i know which SUV will give more mileage
  Posted by SATHISH at 8th November,2009
Endeavour is the SUV KING

fortuner will rock just wait for its 5-automatic transmission
  Posted by Suresh at 29th October,2009
Endeavour is better than fortuner. Endeavour rockssssssssssss!!!!!!!!
  Posted by aman rawal at 26th October,2009
ford endeavour is a much better suv than fortuner . endeavour gives royal look and powerfull driving experince which is better than fortuner .
  Posted by neelabalan at 25th October,2009
fortuner is better than endeavour in many ways as iam not getting any problems in fortuner
  Posted by devraj at 22nd October,2009
endeavour has given us a impeccable service for 125000 km and we have faced no problems unlike the fortuner wich states to have engine defaults at premature stages..also ford has a tremendous history where outomobile is concerned and like the saying goes old is gold...therefore a ford is a ford so i think in the long run ford endeavour shoud do better than its counterpart
  Posted by ashish at 19th October,2009
My way says fortuner is far better than any one which its 5- automatic transmission will prove
  Posted by Jeff at 17th October,2009
Endeavour cannot be compared with fortuner... Endeavour is definately a good SUV but not the best... Toyota RULES...
  Posted by anmol singh at 15th October,2009
hii the persons those who r telling that fortuner is best they r donkeys bcoz i have endevour and foruner also my endevour is 6 months old and nothing happen to it but my fortuner is 2 months old but its engin have some mechanical problem so i will advice to pepole to buy endevour only
  Posted by pankaj arora at 9th October,2009
i being an auto fan kept waiting for fortuner for 3yrs.even bought innova v model during waiting period but was hugely dissapointed seeing fortuner interiors (xerox copy of innova) going for endeavour new automatic now for achange
  Posted by SAMBHAV at 5th October,2009

  Posted by VIKRAM SINGH at 5th September,2009
SITTING ARRANGEMENT ,SPACE AND SAFTY IN ENDEAVOUR IS MORE BUT IT NEED LOT OF CHANGES LIKE HUGE SIZE OF BUMPER CONFORT IN SEATS AND ALSO MORE POWER
  Posted by SHAILENDRA SINGH at 1st September,2009
