Official: 2015 Ford Everest reveal 13 November [video]

Ford has teased a video of its 2015 Ford Everest SUV ahead of its global reveal in China on 13 November.

REPORTS HAD the 2015 Ford Everest reveal pegged for 14 November, but it seems the Everest will be shown to the world a day earlier now (13 November). Ford today has released a video teasing its latest global vehicle, the all-new Ford Everest.

With the development of the 2015 Ford Everest led by Ford’s Asia Pacific design and development team here in Australia. It’s based loosely on the same platform as the Ford Ranger, which was also designed and developed for the world here in Australia.

Indeed, while the Ford Everest has undergone global durability testing a fair chunk of its development work was done in the Australian outback.
“We can’t wait to show the world the latest example of our One Ford global product strategy in action,” said Trevor Worthington, vice president, Product Development, Ford Asia Pacific. “After five years and 4500 man-years of design and development work, we’re going to redefine what customers can expect from an SUV.”

The director of the Ford Design Centre in Melbourne, Todd Willing, said the Everest was the culmination of several years’ work aligning Ford’s global design language with customer insight from each of the key markets where Everest will be sold.

“This is our vision of a large, seven-seat off-road vehicle that exemplifies how Ford’s “One Ford” vehicle philosophy can apply for a vehicle created for Asia Pacific,” Willing said.

“The Everest is also further proof of the world-class design expertise here in Melbourne. Many of the talented team who worked on Everest – and continue to work on other Ford vehicles – have been educated right here in Victoria.”

    Now we know the global reveal date it will be interesting to see when the Everest will be available for sale here in Australia. I heard June 2015 but I am hoping for earlier than that.

      Hey there, I haven’t heard any dates being discussed yet, but mid 2015 is likely. We’ll likely know more once the Everest has been revealed. Cheers Isaac.

      Good question, and I wish I could answer it. We won’t know pricing until the at least the global reveal on the 13th November, although it’s probably more likely to be closer to market introduction. Sorry. Cheers, Isaac.
