Ford Everest:  Segment Leader

As its name suggests, the Sport version of Ford Everest is not only sporty, but also robust, easy to handle and efficient.

If you're going to advertise your product, it's better to make some comparisons than to spout off your own advantages. This method can get you twice as much done. For example, put your product up against a competitor's product and compare all aspects directly. If your product is good enough, you can easily win this battle and make a name for yourself at the same time. Isn't this much easier than making a thinly veiled claim of superiority?

Through these types of comparisons, we can also find that some products are only slightly better than their counterparts. Even from a sales point of view, they may not be at the top of their respective product lines. We have had the opportunity to review the Ford Everest, the Isuzu MU-X and the Toyota Fortuner in the same environment on more than one occasion, and if you ask me directly where they rank, my order would be: Ford Everest, Toyota Fortuner and Isuzu MU-X. As passenger cars, the performance of the first two is certainly more convincing, their plush seats and effective insulation better disguise their ladder-frame chassis.

The above ranking is only a personal opinion. The results of this ranking are a matter of opinion, so even if you have a different opinion from mine, you are welcome to speak out. I will then explain why I have come up with this ranking. Ford has recently released a special edition Sport version of Ford Everest (called เอ ฟ เวอร์ เร ส in Thailand language), which has been available for some time now. Last week, George, a member of our review team, was driving his new car around the Western Cape. If you think the Sport version means some kind of significant power, don't be so quick to jump to conclusions just yet. In fact the special edition Sport version of the Ford Everest is one of the brand's most extreme pick-ups, rivaling the Ford Ranger. It comes with a 2.0-litre twin-turbo petrol and four cylinders that produce 157kW and 500Nm. Of course, it has an excellent suspension, which is similar to the VW Amarok 3.0 V6 TDI has similarities.

So you won't find any surprises lurking under the huge front end of the Sport version of the Ford Everest. You'll find a familiar 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel that produces 132 KW and 420 NM and is mated to the equally familiar 10-speed automatic transmission. The Sport version of the Ford Everest has enhanced styling on the outside, giving it a more aggressive look. Visually, the black mesh grille and distinctive badger make the Sport version of Ford Everest stand out from the Ford lineup, even though they all use the same bonnet. On top of this, black mirror caps and door handles replace the chrome Everest XLT. black trimmed front and rear bumpers, and 20-inch black alloys make up almost the entirety of its range. In the interior, the Sport version of the Ford Everest boasts model-specific embossed leather seats, blue stitching and electronic seat adjustment.

All in all, as its name suggests, the Sport version of Ford Everest is not only sporty, but also robust, easy to handle and efficient.
