Ford Everest 2016 review: Torquing Heads

Ford's all-conquering Ranger has spawned a big new SUV called the Everest.

While underneath it's all business, on top is a handsome, if enormous, body to swallow seven people and tow up to three tons of boat, camper or trailer. Holden got there first with the tough-but-basic Colorado and Toyota has followed suit with its HiLux-based Fortuner which means other brands can't be too far behind.

Given the growing numbers of families using dual-cab utes like the Ranger as their getaway vehicle, Nikki Cousins and Peter Anderson got together to see if the Everest can cut it as a carrier for the family who likes to get a long, long way from it all.
