Ford's new Everest will be offered not only as a heavy duty four-wheel-driver, but also in rear-wheel-drive form, the carmaker has revealed.

That could indicate that there will be no ‘new badge' coming as a replacement for the soft-roading Territory, which is due for retirement next year.

While there is some speculation, and the Edge and Explorer keep getting mentioned in despatches, you could put your money instead on the RWD Everest as the Territory's replacement in the Ford Australia product line-up.

And why not? The Kuga occupies much of the space of the Edge, ditto the Everest for the Explorer.

Also, a strong seller in the Territory line-up is its RWD variant. Even in AWD form, it is more the versatile wagon than a real off-roader.

Enter then, the RWD Everest. It has the ground clearance, the tow rating and the seven-seat versatility of the Territory. Ford too is making much of the on-road refinement and car-like handling and comfort of the Everest.

At the moment however, all that Ford Australia will concede is that “the RWD variant is not confirmed for the Australian market”.

This is a promising pick, but, yes, it will be a case of “watch this space”.
