Photos of the new Ford Everest SUV arriving at the exhibition halls of the 2014 Guangzhou Auto Show, where it will have its public debut on Thursday, after its media-debut last week in Beijing. The Ford Everest is a large body-on-frame SUV for Asian markets developed to take on cars like the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado and Jeep Grand Cherokee. Price will range from around 300.000 to around 450.000 yuan.
The Ford Everest will be available with these engines: a 2.0 turbocharged Ecoboost four-cylinder petrol with 238hp and 360nm, a 2.2 turbocharged Duratorq four-cylinder diesel engine with 150hp and 385nm, and a 3.2 turbocharged Duratorq diesel engine with 200hp and 470nm. Transmissions are a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic, sending power to all-four wheels.
The Everest is manufactured in China by the Jiangling-Ford joint venture. Mass production is set to start near the end of the year with a launch on the Chinese car market in Q1 2015. The joint venture currently makes the Ford Transit and Ford Transit Classic, and will add the Ford Explorer and the Ford Transit Connect to the line-up in the near future.
