 About Ford Everest

The Ford Everest is a mid-size body-on-frame sport utility vehicle (SUV) produced by Ford Motor Company since 2003.

Developed and destined mainly for the Asia-Pacific region with production centered in Thailand, the first-generation Everest is based on the Mazda-based Ford Ranger pickup truck, while the second generation is based on the globally-marketed T6 Ranger.

Unlike the Ranger, the Everest has no Mazda equivalent, as it was seen as unfitting for the brand.

It is known as the Ford Endeavour in the Indian market to avoid legal issues due to the existence of a spice-making brand with the same name in the country.

Ford unveiled the first-generation Everest in March 2003 at the 24th Bangkok International Motor Show.

Designed especially for Asian markets, the Everest shares 60 percent of the Ranger’s components, including its 2.5-liter intercooled turbodiesel engine and the exterior styling from the front to the B-pillars.

It was revealed that the development of the car costs US$100 million including investments needed to manufacture the Everest.

As it is based on the Ranger, it retained the double wishbone independent front suspension and leaf spring rear suspension from the Ranger, while also engineered into making the level of ride comfort and handling of a standard that is better than the Ranger.

The Everest was sold in Asia, Middle East, Central America and the Bahamas.

Changes also included an updated front fascia, new transmission and an improved engine. In addition, the redesign featured the new 5-speed automatic transmission with BorgWarner transfer case, and an Active-Shift-on-the-Fly function (4×4 only) for the first time.

However, this 2007–2015 model is sometimes dubbed as the second-generation Everest by Ford or journalists.

A second facelift was introduced in 2009. While the changes were less massive than the previous facelift, Everest now sports a less boxy fascia than its predecessor and was similar with the facelifted Ranger. The changes were achieved by changing the front fender assembly, front hood, front headlights, front grill and front bumper, while it also featured larger 18-inch polished alloy wheels, a redesigned tailgate and new tail lamps. Another smaller update was introduced in 2012, now sporting a new front grille.In 2013, the Everest received a final facelift, now featuring a new front bumper similarly looking with several global Ford cars.

The second-generation Everest was unveiled as a near-production concept vehicle in March 2014 and as a production version November 2014 ahead of its public debut at the Guangzhou International Motor Show.

Based on the T6 Ford Ranger, the car is now developed by Ford Australia.

It features a complete redesign which now featured a less boxy-looking proportions for a more modern appearance.

Dimension-wise, the 2015 Ford Everest is shorter in length but wider and taller, altering its proportions compared to its predecessor.

The wheelbase has been reduced from 2,860 mm (112.6 in) to 2,850 mm (112.2 in).This model received a facelift in May 2018, coinciding with the Ranger facelift.

The facelift included design tweaks, equipment list update, new 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel engine and 10-speed automatic gearbox.

Another facelift was released for the 2021 year model in November 2020 in Thailand.

The second-generation Everest is used as a basis for a light-duty tactical vehicle for the French military, called the Arquus Trapper VT4.Production and sales of the Endeavour in India ended in 2021 due to the closure of all Ford manufacturing plants in the country.
