the Ford Everest was first in the country not-so-long ago, it was a hit due to the fact that at that only the Blue Oval had the to build a diesel fed, mass market-intended sport vehicle (SUV). Since Ford has seen the competition up significantly and launched an all-new in 2007’s first quarter. But is the new arrival too late in an already arena that includes the Alterra, Toyota Fortuner, Santa Fe, Mitsubishi Pajero and Kia

Still lots of drag, can store all your bags

Much like its predecessor, the Ford Everest has an exterior looks to meet headwinds damn the drag coefficient. The big is that the current model a better looking front a grille that has bigger (for better airflow the engine bay) and better 16-inch rims. The side boards and tailgate-mounted full-size tire are retained, and both are a big help for short passengers and for change emergencies.

Inside, the floor pan is also retained the previous model, and as a result all (six to seven in relative are assured a towering view of ahead. All seats now (and the console lining) are wrapped in moquette fabric, which and feel greatly relaxes inside even after drives. Both second and rows fold and tumble for added space, and the Everest’s third row is easier to operate the 50/50 lateral split of the Toyota Fortuner. Speaking of the third row, lateral has improved, but is still lacking in Lesson: the Everest’s third row can fit two adults 5′ 6 and below, or midgets.

The cold airconditioning (a/c) has zone ventilation for all three but the middle front a/c vents be bigger. The aluminum-lined, Ford audio entertainment and a/c controls are a big but apparently they were bigger priority. As a result for the front middle area (in terms of blower coolness) as to the Mazda 3-style front vents. Interior lighting is inadequate, with the inside located only at the second row and the tailgate ceiling areas. The entertainment is nice, but its backlighting be brighter and it needs help at the end.

Better performance

The 2.5L rail diesel direct engine (derived from the model Ford Ranger) has low end response than its predecessor. A torque curve makes entry (1900-2000rpm) and partial (3000rpm) come in early in the rev but there’s a slight turbo lag due to the weight (1875kg, as compared to 1940 kg of the previous base The five-speed manual transmission of the base model Everest 1.227 million) has gearing is fairly even, but fourth is tall. Clutch engagement and to row the m/t requires moderate effort, in feel to the 2007 Isuzu 4×2 m/t. Nevertheless, the of the upgraded engine and weight are obvious in the tested top speed and fuel consumption (nine per liter, four days driving).

Handling is somewhat better its predecessor, with the Bridgestone H/T 245/70R16s breaking traction loud tire squeal) at There’s pronounced body during hard cornering, but the (especially at the rear) is better the previous model. It’s bouncy, but leans more a floaty yet cushiony ride Steering is moderately light to in feel, and blunt but manageable.

a disc/drum setup for the front and brakes, stopping power is with the anti-lock system up at one-half to three-fourths middle effort. The umbrella-type handbrake to the driver’s right knee in use to the Toyota Tamaraw FXs) was from the previous model, and great grip. Lighting both headlights and foglights are but need to be changed to aftermarket HID intensity discharge) units to better night vision for the The door locks are a big change the previous Everest, but are incorporated the door handle receptacles to the Mazda 3) and need just a or push on the said locks’ to unlock or lock the doors. It be better if there was a small just beside the window button on the driver’s armrest could take care of or unlocking all four doors, most SUVs in its class.

Overall the SUV that was once the Oval’s bread and butter is in a big way, and is much improved its lumbering predecessor. Its own way of portraying ruggedness is sure to make wish they knew to quit driving fun, it’s on tarmac, hard or pebbly roads.
