Santa has a tough job. He needs a vehicle that can tackle any terrain to deliver holiday cheer all over the world. Here’s why the new Ford Everest is up to the challenge. Santa might need help from Rudolf and his pals for intercontinental flights, but there’s no need to trouble them when traveling over land. With a towing capacity of 3,000 kg, the new Ford Everest can pull the reindeer for a change. No more wasted hours digging sleigh runners out of the sand! With its smart Terrain Management System, the new Ford Everest can go anywhere, from the sandy dunes of western China to the rugged and rocky Australian outback. On the varied rooftop terrain of cities around the globe, a 29-degree approach angle and 25-degree departure angle make navigating to chimneys a cinch.
