Just from taking an outside peek at the all new Ford Everest you can see ample space and comfort. The Everest, which can be classed as a large SUV, which I get to take out today, is available with two turbodiesel engines, including a powerful new four cylinder 2.0 litre Bi-turbo engine. This engine is also shared with the new Ford Ranger Raptor.

Like most new models, the Everest comes with smart keyless entry and the push to start button function. The Everest is very spacious and gives enough leg room with the adjustable steering wheel and seats-This feature will come in handy when you decide to take those long-distance drives to test the Everest’s off-road capability. The dashboard features offer a very modern and upbeat feel.

This stunning SUV comes fitted with 7 airbags, stability control, rear parking sensors and a reverse camera. Wen driving the Everest you only focus on enjoying the ride. It has automated daytime running lamps, day and night sensors and automated rain sensors for the windscreen wipers. The Everest does all the thinking for you. Complimented by a wider selection of soft materials, the interior looks classier and allows the details to stand out better.

This beautiful machine is fitted with an 8-inch infotainment system with Bluetooth, audio streaming, voice control and USB and AUX ports. To guarantee that you always know exactly where you are, the Everest also offers a 3D navigation system with elevated map views and enhanced graphics. It is compatible with all Android and Apple Car play handsets. The system also supports multi touch gestures and voice recognition. It also allows you to control certain apps from your cellphone using the touchscreen. The steering wheel control buttons allow you to make or receive calls, listen and reply to messages and switch between your favorite tracks while on your drive.

The Ford Everest features a modernized new chrome-look grille and a revised lower bumper compared to its older version. There are a few more understated details that have been added like the leather feel on the gear lever and a secondary mesh detailing on the grille to compliment all the updates all together.

Jumping on to the freeway you can immediately feel the quiet but powerful transition as it alternates between gears to match the speed pick up. The 2.0-liter Bi-turbo has a smooth and reactive 10 speed auto transmission which allows smooth driving comfort. The diesels two turbos work together in delivering high power and an immense amount of torque.

The Ford Everest is clearly comfortable driving in the concrete jungle but is still very capable of doing just as well-off road once switched to 4WD. It provides the ultimate driving pleasure and is undisputedly one of the most glamourous looking SUV’s of it’s time.
