We'll let you in on a little secret. Our team was at the 36th Bangkok International Motor Show (BIMS) where we caught a glimpse of the all-new Everest weeks before its launch in the Philippines. And luckily, we got all the sweet details on Ford's latest midsize SUV.
Years of waiting has finally come down to this. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce to you the all-new Everest – Ford's best selling SUV. Or at least, we're quite confident that it will be once stocks arrive in September 2015.
If you got your hands on a brand new SUV, the last thing you'd probably want to do is get it dirty... except if your name is spelled as F-O-R-D. Because their idea of fun is to drive their all-new Everest through the very wet and muddy hills of Chiang Rai, Thailand.
And this author was lucky enough to be part of it.
This was bound to happen – Ford Philippines is now the 3rd best-selling automotive brand in the country, thanks to their very healthy sales figures in 2015. That puts them ahead of Honda and Isuzu, as well as kicking Hyundai out of the no. 3 spot as far as our estimates go.
