How about technology and connectivity reliability of the Ford Everest?
It is no secret that car companies are having to become tech companies, first.
Ford is showcasing this now, packing technology into their vehicles - and the Everest is a great example of that.
I, for one, love this fact - the more technology to make my life easier, the better!
But, I will say - across Everest, Ranger and Raptor - the technology implementation has been somewhat frustrating.
The 12.3" portrait infotainment display is wowing; very bright, colour accurate, and responsive.
However, the implementation of wireless Apple CarPlay is frustrating at best. When used wirelessly, I consistently experience stuttering, lag and micro-disconnections - it can somehow make listening to my favourite music annoying.
That is a shame, because it has been 9 months since their launch and I would have hoped it would be fixed by now.
The workaround for those looking for it, use your phone projection technology (Apple CarPlay / Android Auto) with a wire. If you've already connected your phone, you'll need to disconnect it first completely from your system and then reconnect it. It will give you the option to use wired only when you set it up again. You're welcome.
The other issue I have experienced, though only once in a Ranger Raptor last year, was an instrument cluster that froze during the startup animation. That was less cool, as I had to pull over, turn off and on the car, and that then seemed to fix the issue.
I want to stress though, I have these issues across all car manufacturers. It happened last week in a Volkswagen product, and the week before in a Suzuki product.
This seems to be more an issue of this transitionary period from car manufacturer to tech company, in my opinion.
