CORAL Coast Ford principal dealer Richard Seares said the new Ford Everest Trend deserves the accolades it has been receiving.

The car has just been named as 4x4 of the Year by leading publication 4x4 Australia.

Mr Seares said the Everest Trend had been specifically designed for Australian conditions.

"It's only just been released here," he said.

Mr Seares said one of the features was the size of the vehicle, with seven seats.

"There's a lot of new technology in it too," he said.

"There are a lot of safety features, and a lot of exciting new features.

"It's a good towing vehicle, it's a family vehicle and it can go off road," he said.

"It's designed for a growing Australian family."

Mr Seares said the Everest Trend was on sale at $62,990.

4x4 Australia editor Matt Raudonikis said it seemed insane that in a country as big as Australia that there had never been a mass-produced 4X4 wagon built here.

"Thankfully, though, the engineers at Ford Australia have designed a vehicle (built in Thailand) which is brilliantly suited to the many challenges beyond our main roads," he said.

"Whether it's for working or getting away, 4X4s are essential to accessing much of this country.

"They are our modern day workhorses and we simply couldn't get things done, or even survive, without them."

TOP MODELS

The finalists for the 4X4 of the Year were the Toyota Prado GXL, Mitsubishi Triton Exceed, Toyota Fortuner GXL, Ford Everest Trend, Nissan Navara STX and Toyota HiLux SR5.
