CarScoops and Ford Authority have interesting articles about the global Ranger’s sibling… the Everest.

I think this looks great!… A more conventional exterior that’s less polarizing than the Bronco. If the interior mimics the Ranger, a more refined environment. Not to mention body on frame construction with off road chops that would certainly give the 4Runner a run for its money. With economy of scales factoring the large number of shared parts with the Ranger, it could be profitable for Ford too. The only obvious issue bringing this to the NA market is the lack of manufacturing space at the Wayne Plant.

It would overlap to much with the Ford Explorer. Only my opinion, but I think it has zero chance of coming to the NA market.

Yeah, as much as I like it, I agree with you. I think it has a slim chance in showing up in NA with the Explorer as our 3 row seat option. Although I’ve read the Edge was going away? No telling if the Everest could replace it or another new EV model will take that spot in the lineup?

I still think a Lincoln version of the Everest would be a great upgrade from Bronco to get to that luxury off-road (G-wagen, Land Rover, Lexus GX...) market.
I'm sure the volumes wouldn't be there to justify it, but it would be cool.

This made me think of a chart that leaked out last year on the Bronco6G forum when they were speculating about a full size Bronco.
I had to do a lot of digging but here it is.

Since then, I know Ford has introduced the Timberline Explorer, which likely slots in below the FX4 Expedition. But maybe the Everest could slot right of the Timberline and above Bronco? Or maybe as suggested it replaces the Edge to fill the gap between Edge and Bronco.

I'd highly doubt that N/A will get Everest, it's the flagship SUV for Ford globally, but basically everywhere it goes doesn't get Explorer or Expedition.

yea probably won’t happen. I bet a few Bronco owners would opt for the Everest instead. However there is a fillable void in a 4Runner contender from Ford.The Timberline series are basically aesthetics for the mall parking lots lol

The Everest is a fair bit bigger than the Edge was. It's a full three row SUV, bigger than the Explorer in some dimensions.

Right, i was insinuating a similar theory of the Escape vs Bronco Sport, while they are on the same platform but serve different populations. Explorer vs Everest would be a similar comparison (minus the platform obviously) but very similar sized vehicles but targeting completely different demographics.

2023 Ford Everest Once Again Spotted Testing Stateside Ahead Of Reveal (fordauthority.com)

Not that testing mules are any indication of what is or isn't coming to NA, but with ford Axing the Ford Edge, does that maybe renew the possibility?
I think there may be enough room at Ford for a Non-Bronco off roader like the Everest. Especially since the Timberline packages are not true 4Runner competition.
Just thought I'd throw it out there :)
I think this is what will be replacing the Edge…. https://www.carscoops.com/2022/01/fords-working-on-a-new-crossover-might-be-the-fusion-active/
With that said, the Everest would have a unique spot in Ford’s NA lineup as the only 3 row seat BoF SUV. With the Broncos going for Jeep’s market share, the Everest can roast the aging Toyota 4Runner which hadn’t had competition in a long time.
