The 2016 Ford Everest is a crossover vehicle based on the popular Ford Ranger platform. It shares many features with the Ranger, including its Powertrain and interiors. Out the outside, the upcoming Everest will be a completely redesigned model having all its flaws got rid of. Compared to its predecessor, this car will be larger in size, have better ground clearance to aid in off-road use and have an improved chassis which is quite the same as that of the Ranger, but has its own perks. This seven-seater crossover SUV will also be fuel efficient than before, making it the ideal choice for a family vehicle.
