The first-ever Ford Everest made its debut in 2003. It was a straightforward rugged Ranger-based SUV, and it also looked the part. While the Everest shared its front half with the Ranger, its rear was completely unique; it had a boxy wagon-style body that had swing-gate rear door with an external spare tire. It kept the pickup-style rear leaf spring suspension. The second gen Everest improved upon the earlier models but pretty much stuck with the same formula. In 2014 the third gen Everest was unveiled for the 2015 model year; it was a giant leap ahead of its predecessors with its more modern styling and coil spring rear suspension. The Ford Everest is all-new for 2023, it sports a tougher more angular design. It gets a bolder grille flanked by distinctive-looking C-clamp headlights. Like its Ranger pickup sibling, the new Everest has a more prominent shoulder line and flared fenders. It shares the same modern dashboard design as the all-new Ranger. All variants get a SYNC 4 system and a large portrait touchscreen. As expected from this segment, it has seating for seven passengers. The 2023 Ford Everest is available with two inline-4 diesel engine options, a 2.0 Turbo mill which makes 168hp and 405Nm (4x2 variants), and 2.0 Bi-turbo unit which produces 207hp and 500Nm of torque (top-of-the-line Titanium+ 4x4 variant). 4x2 variants get a 6-speed automatic transmission, while the top 4x4 variant comes with a ten-speed automatic tranny. The 2.0 Bi-Turbo Titanium+ 4x4 comes standard with Ford’s intelligent four-wheel drive system and Terrain Management System allows the driver to switch to six different modes to match the terrain. Up front it has an independent double wishbone coil spring front suspension, at the rear it has a live axle with coil springs, trailing links and a Watt’s Linkage which improves ride and handling. All variants of the Everest get four-wheel disc brakes.
