The 2018 Ford Everest is an excellent SUV that accommodates up to 7 passengers at the time. The vehicle is focused around the Ford Ranger, but it definitely offers much more. The company claims that the upcoming model will be the most skilled, safest, fuel efficient and mechanically praiseworthy SUV of all times. The vehicle will keep its recognizable boxy design, but yet it will have the best drag coefficient thanks to the underbody shield which helps in directing air pass under the car. This excellent family-sized package might not be cheap, but having in mind all its features, powerful engines and outstanding design, it’s worth it. Let’s check what it hides inside of the cabin, under the hood and what has been changed in terms of exterior.
