After the Ranger, is the Ford Everest getting an update as well?
It could be said that, back in 2015, the Ford Everest kicked off the second wave of pickup platform vehicles (PPV). Since then, a host of new contenders have been giving the Everest some competition. Two and a half years have passed since its launch and it seems like Ford is about to give their PPV a facelift.
A forum member from Thailand's Headlightmag snapped photos of what appears to be the updated version of the said SUV. It also looks like it's driving around the streets of Thailand mostly undisguised, save for covers on the badge.
Changes made to the Everest appear to be minimal. At the front is what looks like a new garnish for the foglight surrounds and lower air intake. There is also a different grill seen on this particular car as well, employing a slimmer, three-bar treatment. The black wheels also seem to hide a new rim design but other than that, it's difficult to see what other tweaks were made to the exterior.
The forum member also sent a different photo showing the rear. The Everest seen here is silver and it rides on wheels smaller than the ones used on the white Everest. Its wheels, however, look like a carryover from the current Trend variant. From the looks of it, there are no visible changes but it may possibly change once the facelifted Everest is officially revealed. With the updated Ranger spied with no covers in Thailand, it is possible that the Everest will eventually follow suit.
With that in mind, it is yet to be known if the current engine choices will either be mildly tweaked or carried over from the current models. As it stands, there is the 2.2-liter, four-cylinder and the 3.2-liter, five-cylinder, both of which are part of the Duratoq turbodiesel engine family.
