2017 Ford Everest Trend RWD tow test

I have never owned a Ford, but the Ford Everest went a long way to changing my mind about the Blue Oval. On paper, the Everest appeared to be a capable four-wheel drive option with an engine that afforded some towing ability. That's a big tick. Last year, Ford added a rear-wheel-drive option to the Everest range, and recently it added the Sync 3 infotainment system across the range...
