The latter system offers snow, sand, street, and off-road settings, managing hill control, torque vectoring, and throttle response.

Launched in 2015, the Everest has continued to offer technologically-advanced features to markets in Asia Pacific, Sub-Saharan Africa, and markets across the ASEAN regions. According to president, Ford Asia Pacific, Dave Schoch, “The new Ford Everest 2017 is equally prepared for everyday versatility as it is for extreme off-roading. In addition to its exceptional versatility, it also offers a distinct blend of exceptional comfort and tough capability that resonates well with drivers across the globe.”
Indeed, just like the 2016 Everest it is replacing, the newest of the breed combines style, smart features, and strength with unshakable technological prowess and toughness to bring consumers a versatile and tough SUV with unmatched off-road capability. What’s even more, it still retains Ford’s on-road handling and rewarding DNA without compromising on comfort and refinement. “From the EcoSport to the Everest, our SUV portfolio in Asia Pacific offers something for everyone. Drivers, their families, colleagues, and friends will appreciate the toughness and refinement the new 2017 Everest offers. It offers a comfortable and smooth drive quality regardless of whether it is cruising on urban roads or far off the beaten path.”
Once available, the new model will probably face a stiff competition from its arch-rival – the Mitsubishi Pajero. Those in the U.S will find comparable capability in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
