2021 Ford Everest Will Be Based on the Mid-Size Ranger Pickup

The upcoming 2021 Ford Everest will hit the dealerships once again. This time, Blue Oval automaker won’t deliver major updates. Everest SUV is based on the mid-size Ranger pickup truck. There is still room for seven passengers across the three rows of seats. Interior looks modern and it provides great comfort. On top of that, Everest’s cabin is spacious and practical.

From the outside, this SUV looks robust. On the other hand, some parts are looking stylish. The 2020 model started the third-generation and it arrived with significant upgrades. Furthermore, the new 2021 Everest will mostly arrive as a carryover. However, one thing we all anticipate is the Everest Raptor variant.

The third-gen Everest will look like its predecessor. That means the most of the body is a clear carryover. The 2021 Ford Everest won’t get major changes and updates. Blue Oval automaker will deliver small visual updates that are barely visible. More aluminum materials should reduce the overall vehicle’s weight. Aerodynamics is slightly improved but this SUV still looks rugged.

The front fascia now wears more chrome accents and Everest is now available with more standard equipment. On top of that, some changes will happen in the optional department. For instance, Ford will offer all-new 19-inch alloy wheels.
