If true, not the exciting vehicle I was looking forward to. Seems boxy, sort of loose stab at an elongated Evoque or sumpin. Can't wait to see the new Fortuner.

"...•It will roll out of the Thailand plant where it is currently manufactured and will be shipped to Chennai, where it is assembled, sometime in 2014."

...anybody has more?

For India it will be assembled there (Endeavour) For Thailand it will be assembled here (Everest), Do not expect this to happen before 2016.

Another "brick" on wheels to replace the Everest. Find this hard to believe.

These are insight-less all amateur photoshops.

Styling for the new Everest is still at concept stage - nothing has been signed off on yet.

Replace a brick on wheels with another brick on wheels, seems to be par for the course or did you think they would build a SUV sports car instead ?

From what I've heard, the new Everest will be a totally new design, and will no longer be that long boring box. I bought the first generation new in 2004, and though it was a comfortable vehicle, suffered from pretty bad understeer at higher speeds in corners.

The info in that link is almost 100% pure nonesense, except for the obvious bits, like it will have 3 rows of seats and Todd is in charge of the program.

New front suspension and rear leafs replaced with "better ones" - LOL, 2.5L and 3.0L TDCI's from where, does the writer think they are going to resurrect Mazda B-Series engines? Interior transplant - no way, but the 2.0L Ecoboost suggestion takes the cake... heh.

Ignore ;)

I would expect something with a bit more styling than a brick on wheels. As I expected, it's a photoshop hoax.

No way it will have a full length wheelbase same as the pickup, anyway.

The current Everest uses a full-length chassis, as does the MU-7 - the Pajero Sport, Fortuner and Trailblazer all use shortened chassis' though.

It's unlikely that the new T6 Everest will use a full length chassis, yes, but there have been concepts drawn at the full ~5.4M length..

It's all just guessing though ;)

Yep.. This 'shop is my personal fav though - full length with the US Explorer wheels and rear-end grafted on wink.png

The outgoing Mazda B-Series based Ranger has an overall length of 5080mm, the Everest based on it is 5062mm - if the chassis is shorter, it's in the range of millimeters ;)

A quick look at the tech manuals tell me the Ranger is 5173m long with a wheelbase of 3000mm and the Everest being 5062mm long with a wheel base of 2860mm.
