The Everest was never meant to win any beauty pageants. It's big, it's butch, and it looks suitably tough, if that's what you're after.
The front is wide and bullish, there's no real sense of refinement on the exterior and it looks like you're about to take off into some rugged, rocky driving, even though you'll probably be doing the school run.
The interior feels similar - with a smidge more sophistication. Everything is well laid out with a clearly designed centre console area but it doesn't look at all luxurious, which you're not expecting on this car anyway.
So the seats are fabric and the steering wheel isn't leather, but strangely it's not disappointing because that's exactly what you're expecting from a Ford Everest.
It looks like it can take in some dirt and without completely ruining everything. Great for a family which doesn't keep its car pristine.
