This vehicle is one of the true SUVs that survived the great crossover craze. 2016 Ford Everest is not going to be much different than the current model since in 2015 model year this vehicle came with all the goodies one SUV enthusiast might want.
Unfortunately for the American SUV lovers Ford is not going to sell this vehicle on American market, instead they decided to sell it in China, Australia, New Zeland and Southeast Asia only. New model will comes with numerous features that came with last year’s model which received great interior refinement and the best performance on road surfaces.
2016 Ford Everest Design
Exterior styling of this vehicle is one of its best assets. It looks very handsome, and rugged at the same time. Front fascia looks like a skidplate itself and with high ground clearance and fat tires this vehicle looks very stable and powerful. In the front we can’t not notice shinny big chrome grille with chrome accents on the side. Rear also comes with skidplate-looking design which gives this model a proper SUV look.
When it comes to off road capability 2016 model will come with the same 29 degree approach and 25 degree departure angles same as the current model and it will also have more than nine inches of ground clearance, more than most of its competitors.
Interior of 2016 Ford Everest is going to be more luxurious and elegant looking than ever before. It comes with three seating rows, with an ability to fold down two back rows and create more cargo room. When it comes to hi tech, new model will come with Sync 2 infotainment system with eight inch touch screen display.
This infotainment display is going to be placed on the dashboard, while the central console is going to come with Terrain Management Control, and numerous other control buttons from locking differential to traction control. It will also come with two 12 volt power outlets for charging phones and iPods.
Under the Hood
New model will come with standard three engine options and two transmission options, same as last year. Standard version will come with 2,0 liter four cylinder engine made in EcoBoost technology, there’s also 2,2 liter four cylinder Dura Torque engine that runs on diesel. Biggest engine is going to be the 3.2 liter Dura Torque five cylinder diesel.
Two transmission systems on the offer will be six speed automatic and six speed manual. New Everest will come with four wheel drive, same as the previous model, and since they are still no official information about new model’s performance, it might get a little power and fuel efficiency boost for the new model year.
