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.
