Ford seems to have SUVs in its focus this yr. 1st, the automaker unveiled the Edge notion at the 2013 Los Angeles Car Show, and its newest idea appears suspiciously like the following-generation Explorer. The Everest notion is a greater 6-passenger SUV that could simply replace the Explorer, which was last redesigned for model-year 2011.

The production model of the Everest is at present on sale outside the U.S., but in a statement, Ford said “the Everest concept represents our vision of a global Ford car with regional heritage that will enable customers to take on the globe.” It also called it a “daring new course that we envision for a midsize, 6-seat SUV.”
The truck-primarily based SUV notion is absolutely more rugged than the U.S. Explorer, with an off-road-ready ground clearance and a challenging-seeking, blocky front end. But its upswept headlights and sculpted profile could very easily make the jump to Ford’;s U.S. showrooms. For now, however, there’;s no U.S. connection Ford explained the notion was “made for global markets” and will be created in Thailand.
