What We Know About 2022 Ford Everest
The latest photographs highlight the SUV’s grille and headlamp design, starting with the design. The boxy and upright front end of the new Ranger is similar to earlier generations, with the exception of the updated front bumper. The most noticeable alterations on the sides begin behind the front doors, which account for the model’s three-row SUV configuration. The new SUV also has a stronger shoulder line, however, the window line stays unchanged from the previous model.
While the back of the car isn’t visible in this photograph, prior test mules have revealed a fresh style with a sloped tailgate and LED accents on the revamped taillamps.
The inside will be similar to the new Ranger, with a huge central portrait-oriented touchscreen and a digital instrument cluster. Expect the new Everest to be more technologically advanced than the present one.
Under the hood, the Everest (Endeavour) could be equipped with a similar set of engines as the new Ranger, including a 2.0-liter diesel engine carried over from the current model and a new 3.0-litre diesel V6 engine, depending on the market. Both manual and automatic gearboxes are likely to be available.
2022 Ford Everest India Future
It’s unclear whether the new Everest will be offered in India now that Ford has shut down its production plants. The Mustang and Mustang Mach-E are expected to arrive in the coming years, as the automaker prepares to transition to a CBU-only lineup from its worldwide portfolio. The current-generation SUV was built in the United Kingdom and competed against the Toyota Fortuner and MG Gloster.
