It looks like company’s management is extremely satisfied with this brand-new SUV, so they want to provide it for the North American market too, most likely as 2018 Ford Everest. As you probably understand, Ford has just 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 can be found in conventional manner is Expedition. Given that this is a full-size SUV, there is a need for some smaller vehicle of this type. The Everest might be an ideal service. Developed mostly for the Australian market, it might pertain to the North America as 2018 Ford Everest.
This is a SUV created for Australian market. It is based on the current version of popular Ranger pickup, which also goes back to U.S. after numerous years of brake. This SUV was well accepted in Australia, and company now wants to provide it in North America too. According to reports, most of design qualities will remain unchanged. In regards to exterior style, 2018 Everest will come basically as Australian model, which came in 2015, and which is still very fresh in regards to styling. It totally follows company’s current so-called Kinetic Design styling, featuring exact same services as models like Kuga, Edge etc.
When it has to do with interior, this model features practically the exact same cabin as Ranger. This is the element where 2018 Ford Everest might include some modifications made particularly for the North America. Control panel could feature modifications, similar to the instrument panel and some other areas. We also anticipate use of materials of greater quality as well as longer list of features, both standard and optional.
Current model is readily available with 2 diesel motor. Those are 2.2 liter Duratorq, which is available in few setups with various outputs, and also with 3.2 liter Duratorq engine, which benefits about 200 horses and 350 pound-feet of torque. For the North American market 2018 Ford Everest will certainly feature some gas engine in deal. It will be some of the current EcoBoost systems, more than likely 3.5 liter V6, which currently shown itself as an outstanding option for SUVs and crossovers.
The rate of the car is still unknown, however we do hope its cost will get lower. Thinking about the current model’s beginning point, the car ought to get less expensive by at least $5,000 to become practical for the Australian market. Ford is anticipated to release the new generation of the Everest by the end of the year while the production version of the car will be out in early 2018.
