Spy photos of the new 2017 Ford Everest are causing a buzz on the internet. If the spy pics are anything to go by, we should expect the new model to be more technologically advanced, more refined, and stunningly capable seven-seat SUV. Although the Everest won’t be available in the USA market, it is expected to make a home run in countries such as New Zealand, China, Australia, India, Canada, Philippines, Thailand, and other markets across the ASEAN region. Its release date for the aforementioned countries should be expected sometime in the latter half of 2017.
For anyone who’s had an opportune time to take the existing Ford Everest for a spin around the block, one thing’s for sure – it excellently melds exceptional comfort, tough capability, and everyday versatility; factors that all resonate well with today’s SUV expectations. For 2017, Ford aims to continue offering buyers the same unique combination that has been time-tested over time, but with a bit of tweaks here and there.
When you look at the 2017 Ford Everest, whether in motion or in static form, what immediately strikes you is its technological prowess and unshakeable toughness. What makes it even more interesting is its comfortable and smooth interior ambience that it offers even with all that show of strength and off-road capability on the outside. And yes, it looks like a tanker on the outside, but deep within is a lush, cozy, serene and comfortable aura.
So once again, Ford has managed to give the new 2017 Ford Everest a rewarding and dynamic on-road handling without sacrificing comfort and refinement. In the word of Trevor Worthington – vice president, Product Development, Ford Asia Pacific, “It enables drivers and their families, colleagues and friends to go anywhere in a serene and comfortable environment.”
In terms of the competition, buyers should also take some time to see what the 2016 Toyota 4Runner and the 2016 Nissan Xterra offer. The Toyota 4Runner shares a bit much with the Everest, ranging from features such as a tall ground clearance, a robust four-wheel-drive system, independent front suspension system, to a body on-frame architectural design. The Nissan Xterra, just like the Toyota 4Runner, comes with a four-wheel drive, a solid rear axle, V6 engine, and a body-on-frame platform. What however makes the Xterra appealing is its favorable price point which starts from an MSRP of $23,000.
2017 Ford Everest Release Date & Price
As you can see from the spy pictures, the new model’s skin is heavily disguised, meaning it’s too early for most of the details to be known. However, rumor has it that it won’t cost much relative to the model it is replacing. As such, buyers should expect it to be offered with a price tad starting from $54,990. Its release date should also be expected sometime in the latter half of 2017.

Just like before, the new model returns with a powerful presence on the road thanks to the robust front end that features signature LED daytime running lights, and the bold, sculptural design that communicates its advanced smart features and impressive capabilities. In addition to the stylish demeanor that seamlessly combines form and function, it is also highly efficient due to the extensive aerodynamic testing.
The result is a ruggedly handsome vehicle that offers more than what buyers’ can bargain for. The Terrain Management System is available with four settings – rock, sand, snow/grass/and normal. All these features are aimed at providing optimal performance in all conditions.
