Recently, Ford Malaysia organised a media test drive in Chiang Rai, Thailand to get acquainted with the all-new 2015 Ford Everest which is built upon the new Ford Ranger’s T6 platform.
Introduced at this year’s Bangkok International Motor Show in March, the seven-seater SUV has been teased on Ford Malaysia’s official website not too long ago, and will come to Malaysia sometime this year: we understand a time around August is expected.
And while we put together our comprehensive review of the much-anticipated new model, here's a load of new photos we've taken from our drive to keep you warm first.
The variants you see before you are the 2.2L 4x2 and 3.2L 4x4 Titanium respectively. The former is powered by a 2.2-litre four-cylinder Duratorq diesel engine while the latter gets a larger 3.2-litre Duratorq five-cylinder diesel engine instead.
As you can tell, the 4x4 Titanium is fitted with Ford’s Terrain Management System along with controls to manage the car’s differential, helping it navigate rough terrain. Additionally, it also gains a few other features including a powered liftgate, moon roof, larger wheels, and different interior trim pieces.
So browse through our galleries of both variants to get a better look at the all-new 2015 Ford Everest which will go up against the recently launched Isuzu MU-X, and the forthcoming Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and Toyota Fortuner.
Expect a full review of the Everest from us soon.
