Written by Nizam Shaikh

Ford is planning to make a comeback in the Indian market. The brand could be planning to introduce the Ford Everest and the Ford Ranger pick-up upon its reentry. According to reports, the brand has already imported the Everest and Ranger in India through the Chennai port. Yesterday we saw the Ranger as well as the Everest being transported on a flatbed.

The brand could be currently importing the SUVs in the Indian market to test the demand and gauge waters. The Ford Everest which is also known as the Endeavour in some markets including India is likely to compete with the Toyota Fortuner and MG Gloster. On the other hand, the Ford Ranger which shares the platform with the Everest/Endeavour will lock horns with the Isuzu DMAX V-Cross and the Toyota Hilux.

Ford Everest and Ranger – Spyshots

The interior pictures reveal an upright dashboard with a chunky steering wheel and a prominent gear shift stick. On the inside, the SUV comes with a vertically-oriented central infotainment system and a raised transmission tunnel. The wide central console also features bottle holders an electronic parking brake and multiple switches.

The SUV also comes with air-conditioning vents in a vertical orientation and silver accents. The engine start/stop button is placed on the right side of the steering column where conventional cars would have the ket hole. The interior theme on the SUV also appears predominantly black in the spy shots, however, Ford is likely to have options on its interior colour and upholstery upon launch.

Ford Everest and Ranger – Engine Speculation

Both the Ranger and Everest are likely to come with a 2.3-litre and 2.7-litre engine options. The brand is likely to offer a 10-speed automatic with the SUV and the pick-up and both are likely to come with 4×2 and 4×4 drivetrain options.
