Ford Everest (2004 - 2006)
We say:
Fear no ditch or pothole as the Everest is one robust people carrier. It uses the same 2.5-liter diesel in the Ranger--detuned but with a better power band. The chassis has been softened up too. Three rows of seats is mighty practical, but overall the Everest lacks refinement. Stay away from prehistoric auto which robs a lot of power.

Comfortable but robust.
Refinement isn't its strong suit.
