That is what people will see.

There may be extra tech in the Everest, but the image in people's minds of where it is placed in the market will dictate the price expectation.

The Everest must have some low hanging body/suspension. only 225mm ground clearance vs 279mm, but the Everest wins with 800mm wading depth vs the Furtuner's 700mm.
But one is a proper AWD system as opposed to diff lock set up and a few other items.

It is interesting that the ride and steering are complained about this car. Seeing as the majority of driving would be done on the road you would think that you would want that to be more important.
