Offers an all-diesel engine lineup.
Ford Motors has unveiled the all new 2015 Ford Everest (arriving in India as the Ford Endeavour) at the 2015 Indonesia International Motor Show (2015 IIMS) today.
The more-rounded exterior of the Ford Everest is a step up from the boxy looks of the outgoing model. Characteristic features include a bold chrome grille, projector headlamps, sculpted wheel arches, new horizontal wraparound taillamps, and a large chrome bar with the nameplate embossed.
The third-generation SUV is based on the Ford Ranger (T6) pick-up truck platform but comes with an heavily revised suspension system and cabin features. It measures 4,893 mm long, 1,862 mm wide, 1,837 high, has a wheelbase of 2,850 mm, and a high ground clearance of 225 mm.
Inside, Ford has equipped the 2015 Everest with features like a Terrain Management System, power-folding third row seats, a 9-speaker audio system with a sub-woofer and an 8-inch screen touchscreen display powered by Ford’s latest SYNC2 infotainment system.
Under the hood, the 2015 Ford Everest comes with a choice between a 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel engine and a 3.2-liter five-cylinder diesel engine. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic transmission, while higher variants get a 4WD system as standard.
