The chiseled, sculptural curves of the exterior hint at the refined interior within. Everest has a rugged body-on-frame construction, intelligent four-wheel drive, advanced Terrain Management System and a smart suspension system which provides rugged strength for off-road driving and exceptional ride comfort both on and off-road.

The all-new Everest also boasts two engine options - a 3.2L Duratorq 5-cylinder TDCi engine with 200 hp, and 470 Nm of torque and a 2.2L Duratorq 4-cylinder TDCi engine with 160 hp and 385 Nm of torque. These options are mated to either a 6-speed automatic or manual transmission.
