It looks like company’s management is very satisfied with this new SUV, so they want to offer it for the North American market too, probably as 2018 Ford Everest. As you probably know, Ford has only one true SUV in its lineup for U.S. market, while all other former SUVs like Explorer turned to a crossover unibody platform. The only model that comes in traditional manner is Expedition. Since this is a full-size SUV, there is a need for some smaller vehicle of this type. The Everest could be a perfect solution. Designed primarily for the Australian market, it could come to the North America as 2018 Ford Everest.
2018 Ford Everest redesign
This is a SUV designed for Australian market. It is based on the latest version of popular Ranger pickup, which also returns to U.S. after several years of brake. This SUV was well accepted in Australia, and company now wants to offer it in North America too. According to reports, most of design characteristics will remain unchanged. In terms of exterior design, 2018 Everest will come pretty much as Australian model, which came last year, and which is still very fresh in terms of styling. It completely follows company’s current so-called Kinetic Design styling, featuring same solutions as models like Kuga, Edge etc.
2018 Ford Everest interior
When it is about interior, this model features pretty much the same cabin as Ranger. This is the aspect where 2018 Ford Everest could come with some modifications made specifically for the North America. Dashboard could come with revisions, just like the instrument panel and some other areas. We also expect use of materials of higher quality and also longer list of features, both standard and optional.
2018 Ford Everest engine
Current model is available with two diesel engines. Those are 2.2 liter Duratorq, which is available in few configurations with different outputs, and also with 3.2 liter Duratorq engine, which is good for about 200 horses and 350 pound-feet of torque. For the North American market 2018 Ford Everest will surely come with some petrol engine in offer. It will be some of the latest EcoBoost units, most likely 3.5 liter V6, which already proven itself as an excellent solution for SUVs and crossovers.
