2023 Ford Everest: official pix…
The new 2023 Ford Everest is still a forbidden fruit for North American customers.
Even though git looks very similar rot the outgoing model, (3rd pic from the top) Ford claims the new Everest has a longer wheelbase (But probably still using the same platform).
It does look a little bit more modern than the outgoing model, but not by much. The most tricking design feature is, of course, the 2022 Ranger front end.
Otherwise, it’s one of these generic designs that could be anything from anyone. The rear end actually looks like a Chinese SUV.
It is powered by a choice of good old Diesel engines. 2.0 Liter or a larger 3.0 Liter Vy. Both with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
At least in these photos, the interior doesn’t seem premium. Even if you imagine leather seats.
But this is, after all, a “real truck”. Not a regular Crossover.
Which is the appeal of the Everest.
It is basically Ford’s 4-Runner.
The new Bronco already competes in that segment.
Between this generic-looking SUV and the Bronco, I think most North American buyers will pick the Bronco any day.
I think Ford is right. They don’t need another generic SUV here.
