Say hello to what is potentially the best true SUV Ford has ever made, the 2015 Everest. Just try not to fall in love. Sadly, the American automaker isn’t bringing this body-on-frame, solid-rear-axle, diesel-powered SUV to the States. Nope, it’s strictly for our friends in China, Australia, New Zealand, India, and the southern parts of Africa. The Everest has actually been around for some time now, starting life in 2003. Like it’s always been, the SUV is based on the global Ranger pickup truck platform, another vehicle we don’t get stateside.

Ford is making the Everest more competitive than ever, with, of course, its off-road capabilities, but also its on-road refinement and interior amenities. Included are such things as autonomous emergency braking, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Aid, Blind Spot Monitoring, Cross Traffic Alert, and Curve Control. That last part helps keep the top-heavy SUV right side up when entering a corner too hot.

Also present is Ford’s Terrain Management System that includes settings for Normal, Snow/Gravel/Grass, and Sand and Rock. It adjusts the engine’s throttle response, the transmission, traction control, and four-wheel-drive system. The part-time transfer case also includes a low range while the rear axle has an electronic-locking differential.

Needless to say, the Everest isn’t joking around about its abilities.

Ford slathers the icing on the cake with two diesel engine choices; one being a 2.2-liter Duratorque four-cylinder and the other a 3.2-liter Duratorq five-cylinder. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost is offered as well.

A Ford Everest Raptor is in the Works; Could Lead to a Bronco Raptor

A Ford Everest Raptor is in the Works; Could Lead to a Bronco Raptor

Will the “Raptor-ization” continue?

First, there was the Ford F-150 Raptor, then came the Ranger Raptor, but if Australia’s Drive.com is to be believed, Ford might have an Everest Raptor in the works. The Everest, the three-row SUV version of the Ranger, would theoretically be easy to give the Raptor treatment. Both the Ranger and Everest share similar frames and suspensions, along with the forward second of the cab.

So, what spurred this theory? No less than Ford Performance’s head engineer, Jamal Hameedi, in fact. He told Drive, “There’s no reason [we wouldn’t do an Everest Raptor],” he said.

Ford Invest $170 Million In South Africa Plant To Build Everest

Ford Invest $170 Million In South Africa Plant To Build Everest

Investment to add 1,200 new jobs at Silverton Assembly Plant in Pretoria

Ford is expanding its South African operations in preparation for the upcoming Everest SUV.The Everest will share the assembly line with the existing Ford Ranger pickup at the Silverton Assembly Plant in Pretoria, South Africa.

Ford is set to invest $175 million in the expansion project, while creating some 1,200 new jobs, both directly at the plant and within the South African supplier network.

“Our customers love the capability and utility offered by the all-new Ford Everest,” said Jim Farley, Ford executive vice president and president of Europe, Middle East and Africa. “By producing the Everest in South Africa, we will be able to make it more readily available, and in a greater variety of models, for customers throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.

Farley continued in saying the investment reaffirms the importance of the South African market to Ford’s growth strategy across the Middle East and Africa. The South African network will act as a strategic export base for the automaker.

The Silverton plant is expected to build 10,000 Everests annually. This will work to alleviate the Everest’s current production facility in Thailand. The new local assembly will also add new engine and trim line choices to the South African market. Currently the Everest is only available with the 3.2-liter I-5 Duratorq turbodiesel with the automatic transmission in XLT or Limited trims. The Silverton plant will give South African’s the chance to buy the 2.2-liter I-4 Duratorq and several more trim options.
