IMO, go for the Everest. More power (156 hp and 380 Nm for Everest, 146 hp and 315 Nm for the Alterra), more gears (both are auto 'boxes, but the Everest has 5 gears, while the Alterra has to make do with 4), an LSD for the Everest, and most of all, smaller dimensions (but strangely, heavier curb weight) also for the Everest.

Space-wise, one may not believe it, but they have almost the same, if not bigger for the Everest, interior space (despite the Alterra being longer than the Everest). Except if you intend to use all three rows (both the Alterra and the Everest still don't have at the least headrests for the 3rd row). NVH levels are, for me, just right. (i.e. both are comfortable enough for long travels, except again if one is on the 3rd row.)

Some drawbacks? The Everest has fewer amenities than the Alterra (the Alterra has a 5.1 surround sound system, factory installed), and the twist-type parking brake may not be appreciated well, especially that most of us are weaned to floor-mounted e-brake levers. Another is that the gear shifter for the Everest may be confusing to use at first (since the gear indicators on the shifter are located on the passenger side of the shifter.)

Fuel consumption? Well, the least I know are the manufacturer's claims: 8.64 km/L for the Alterra 3.0L, 10.87 km/L for the Everest 3.0L.

That's all I can say for now. It's all up to you to choose.

Hope that helps.  :)

 Choose the Ford Everest. I tell you. Just ignore the Alterra.

Like sagarae said, if you want power go for the Everest, but if you want amenities go for the Alterra. There's no sign that these models will be changed this year so they're still safe bets  to purchase. That being said, whatever's in the Alterra you can install in the Everest via the aftermarket.

Good luck!

I do not know about Altera, but 3.0 Everest is only available in A/T.

Chief, the current Alterra comes either with auto- and manual-tranny, with the latter variant limited to the 4 x 2 models only.

Both the 3-litre Isuzu Alterra and the 3-litre Ford Everest come with almost the same interior-space size.  At this stage, however, the engine on the Everest is better (156 ps, 380 Nm torque from 1800 rpm to almost about 2500 rpm). It also comes with a VGT. The current Philippine-Alterra, however, which has the same engine as the DMax, is still sporting the 2004 model engine 4JJ1-TC "standard". It does not have a VGT, like all the others, and it produces 146 ps and 294 Nm torque from 1400 rpm to 3400 rpm, i.e. over a range of 2000 rpm breadth.

Fuel consumption-wise, however, the Alterra gives 19.44 km per litre, as documented by the Department of Energy in 2008.... See quote and click accompanying link:



Here's that official link proving to the fuel-efficiency of those vehicles listed above....

http://www.alternat1ve.com/biofuel/2008/10/26/top-10-cars-in-the-philippines-in-fuel-economy/

1. Suzuki Alto 0.8L MT Gas – P1.38/km (34 km per liter)
2. Hyundai Getz 1.5L MT Diesel – P1.82/km (25.22 km/liter)
3. Hyundai Accent 1.5L MT Diesel – P1.97/km (23.38 km/liter)
4. Mercedes Benz C-180K 1.8L AT Gas – P2.07/km (22.70km/liter)
5. Toyota Vios 1.3L MT Gas – P2.08/km (22.67 km/liter)
6. Ford Focus 2.0L MT Diesel – P2.15/km (21.39km/liter)
7. Kia Picanto 1.1 AT Gas – P2.18/km (21.60 km/liter)
8. BMW 320D 2.0L AT Diesel – P2.24/km (20.53 km/liter)
9. Isuzu DMax LT 4×2 2.5L MT Diesel – P2.24/km (20.57 km/liter)
10. Isuzu Alterra 4×2 3.0L MT Diesel – P2.37/km (19.44 km/liter)

The Hyundai Accent may well be on its 3rd-year in the market this coming 2011.... and must have been a proven car by now  ;)

Between the two and given the price, one "might" definitely go with the Everest muscle-wise, else for any other reasons, like "indicative" fuel mileage, the Alterra.

Pakibasa nalng ito, topgear mismo ang may gawa nito pero 2010 pa ito.. Siguro wla namang nagbago sa Everest at Alterra ngayung 2013 maliban lang sa makina na VGT ang everest yung sa isuzu 4JJ1 padin, pero para sakin kung patibayan ng makina at tipid sa diesel, ISUZU is da best kahit di xa gaya ng ibang SUV na pabilisan ng takbo, ang isuzu eh patibayan ng makina.. yun lang po masasabi ko kasi isuzu user ako at base yan sa experience ko..
