The SUV the USA wished they had

The Ford Everest is the go anywhere SUV the American market doesn't have. Very refined, very capable and not scared of the off road. It will almost go anywhere a Land Rover can go. It even has the terrain response system as found in the Land Rovers. Are you Americans jealous yet? Best of all it's based on the Ford Ranger. One of the best pickups outside of the Land of the free.
Check out the link below. You'll find plenty of reviews there

I hope Ford reconsiders bringing the Everest over after production of the Ranger and the rumored Bronco begins. That factory would be working at full capacity as all 3 models have potential to be big.

Re: The SUV the USA wished they had

Here's a link to it's mechanical twin the Ford Ranger pickup..Keep in mind that this was the first pickup to dethrone the Toyota Hilux in several markets where both are sold. That includes New Zealand and South Africa. I've spoken to the salesmen at Ford, and they told me several times that they just can't get their hands on enough stock of these vehicles as they are exported also. Feast your eyes in this.

Re: The SUV the USA wished they had

Since when is the Trailblazer based upon the Ranger?

Very nice truck. Thanks for sharing that video. I think the Ranger would pose more of a threat to the Tacoma than the Colorado. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Ranger overtake the Tacoma to give Ford the best-selling trucks in both segments again. Ranger is a well known, long running nameplate with a pretty positive reputation amongst the general public. Can't wait for it's return.

Re: The SUV the USA wished they had

The Everest is a good looking classic SUV, but you have to remember the US already has vehicles that better fit US customers (Ford Explorer + Ford Expedition). We've already had these products, they evolved to better fit US customer needs and expectations which is why they transformed into what we have now. Explorer for on-road family comfort and space or Expedition for ALLOT more family comfort and space + gobs more towing power. The US isn't missing anything, sorry.

Ford has 2 holes in The SUV- Crossover line up in USA: a subcompact Crossover (B segment: EcoSport) and a really rugged, sporty SUV, like The Jeep Wrangler. I hope Ford fill them in The future with The next gen EcoSport and The rumored new Bronco.

The Everest give nothing to The northamerican Ford dealers

Re: The SUV the USA wished they had

The Troller T4 is also a capable Jeep like vehicle. Based also on the Ford Ranger. So when they bring the Ranger to the USA, they can have this also, should they choose. Off course it might not have all the creature comforts Americans like to have in their vehicles, but that can easily be fixed. I bet that should they bring out a Bronco based on a Ranger then this might just be it. You can check it out on Troller's website
http://www.troller.com.br
Google translate helped out a bit there.
