Link/proof that Everest and Ranger Raptor is coming to the US? I'm pretty up to date on automotive news and I have heard nothing of the sort.The Everest is indeed coming to the states according to Ford along with the Ranger Raptor. This vehicle will not compete with the Bronco, they are two different ideas. The Bronco will probably go after Jeeps and offroad dedicated vehicles like that. The Everest will be competitor to SUVs in general. Its cheaper than an Explorer but handles just as good. However, an explorer destroys it with creature comforts. No getting around it, the Explorer is a better unit with a hefty price. This SUV has a place in the US market to compete against all other SUVs, but it also has the offroad capability of many 4x4.
It has plenty of room and comfort and drives really nice. Ive drove and offroaded many vehicles(Toyota,Nissan,Mitsubishi etc..) here and can honestly say this thing is very well balanced.
Keep in mind, the Everest coming to the States will be the best one ever built. After its growing pains ofcourse, just like what the Ranger is going through now.
