Re: Ford Reveals Everest Concept in Australia

This just reconfirms the pussification of America. We've become soft like the liberals wanted all along, so our trucks (Explorer) have become glorified cars. If you have a Y chromosome and prefer the Explorer to this then I would suggest there is something amiss in your head.

Re: Ford Reveals Everest Concept in Australia

Very Nice. This would be for global markets, what the Expedition is for the US. The SUV version of the Global Ranger/F-150 pick-up. But this could give us an idea what the new Expedition may look like. Less boxy, more rounded, more finished, more muscular. Reminds me of the Grand Cherokee in the rear.

I'm not sure people in the US are looking for an Explorer that is more off-road-worthy, at least not in sufficient numbers. For those that need this in the US, there is the Expedition which is not available in those markets.

I hear ya, but the Expedition is just so **** huge. I have no desire to deal with something that large when I have no use for it. I would however be first in line for the Everest, to me it and the global Ranger are the perfect size!! I honestly think for 90% of F150/Expedition owners it would be better also.

The Everest can be both a truck, off roader, and grocery getter. The Explorer is only one of those things.

no more wire hangers ever! ...I mean "lincolnized fords"

for those platforms that'll be used for both Brands,
Lincoln has to AT LEAST be on equal footing with Ford when conceiving the initial specifications ...IF NOT FIRST

you CAN take out Luxury design and top tier engineering,
rarely if ever can it be effectively retrofitted to an INFERIOR design
imho.

imho the details of the Edge will be so different (and higher end!) that the resemblance will be at most superficial
esp: much greater detail in the grille & smaller, higher-tech-looking headlites

I don't think the Expedition has that much off road ability however

Re: Ford Reveals Everest Concept in Australia

I love this suv. I hope it would come to the US just like this to compete with the Jeep Grand Cherokee. I wish that the next generation Ford Edge will be designed just like this. Sporty with an Upscale design. There are no Ford SUV's here in the us that look like a real suv. The Ford SUV's here in the US are bloated and low to the ground. This Everest sits high and has a true SUV appeal to it.

Re: Ford Reveals Everest Concept in Australia

Just looking at the year end sales results, and how much traction Jeep is having with offering more rugged AWD platforms on their SUVs, while Ford goes more for the soft road CUV vehicles.

Which is why I think the RWD/AWD 5+2 passenger Everest would be a good fit between the crossover Edge and then Explorer. Or between the Explorer and the Expedition. While the Global Ranger/F-100 sits between the Transit Connect and F-150.

This would also help give Ford more off road credibility, so they can sit at the same table as Jeep.

^ cue Troller comment from ausrutherford in 3... 2... 1...

I wonder if Everest would get the same not-ready-for-prime(U.S.)time from Mark Fields??
&
really wonder if some mutual architecture couldn't serve all these middie-trucks and make them profitable/workable globally ...U.S.included this time??

Everest can always be needed here. Of course, would not mind the new Troller coming either as a Bronco. They should launch Troller in China however...instant sales. Both it and Everest are T6 so starting production in China couldn't be hard per say.
