2022 Toyota Fortuner vs Ford Everest: Conclusion

On paper, the Toyota Fortuner and the Ford Everest are just about comparable to each other. Well, save for some details like the Toyota model’s lack of a sunroof and autonomous emergency braking. Then again, it also doesn’t have a 360-degree view camera. A must-have for driving in very busy locations like Metro Manila.

In terms of engine output though, the Everest offers a bit more horsepower. Then again, we can expect that real world performance will boil down to their difference in transmissions instead of power. Off-road wise though, we’re guessing that these two won’t have that many issues.

In terms of styling, we’ll leave that up to you. Also, this is just an overview comparison of each of these models’ specs, so we urge you to give each model a test drive. With that, you can arrive at your own choice of SUV.
