To paraphrase The Dark Knight movie: Not the SUV we deserve, but the SUV we need

Aftermarket companies are the guilty pleasure of any customization aficionado. Whether it is a power boost or an aesthetic upgrade, these companies do the most unthinkable things and sometimes make us wonder how good the product would be as a factory-made model.

The latest example of this is a build by TTN Hypersport, a custom shop in Thailand. TTN has dared to rebuild the Ford Everest into a wild vehicle that essentially looks like an F-150 Raptor SUV. Ford, can we expect something like this in the future?

Shall We Call It Everest F-150 or Everaptor or Raptorest?

TTN Hypersport is known to make such lovechildren. A little while back, the company slapped an F-150 Raptor’s face and derriere on a Ranger Raptor in what was one of the best face swaps we’d seen in recent times. Now, TTN has transformed a Ford Everest into an F-150 Raptor SUV, if there ever was one. Now, the Everest is a mid-size SUV, whereas the F-150 is a full-size pickup truck.

Despite the difference in dimensions, TTN has managed to gel the two together very well. This isn’t a plug-and-play sort of a situation wherein the F-150 Raptor’s face was swapped with the Everest’s.

The aftermarket company has made generous use of polycarbonate and fiberglass to create the sporty truck’s face on this family hauler. It is identical to the F-150 Raptor and even comes with the three marker lights that are pasted on the truck’s face due to the extra width.

The Raptor grille, skid plate, and the short bumper are in place as well. The widened fenders have extra pieces grafted on them that can be seen on the doors, bumpers, and the rear quarter panels. It seems to be riding a little higher than the standard Everest as well to accommodate those huge off-road tires wrapped around black beadlock wheels. The black plastic cladding on the wheel arches and the side skirts give the SUV a rough look.

There’s not a lot of information on this build other than the exterior upgrades. Had there been any changes under the hood, TTN would’ve probably mentioned it on their page. In the top-trim, the Thai-spec Everest comes packed with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder bi-turbo diesel engine that makes 286 horses and 369 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to all the wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission.

There’s no word on the cost of this customization. This Everest F-150 Raptor looks stunning and we hope that Ford offers this from the factory someday. The rugged looks of an F-150 Raptor on an SUV is a desirable thing to have and makes for a strong case to be produced someday.
