Ford locks in Everest specs

V6 and 4-cyl turbo-diesel power offered over four-grade line-up, pricing to be confirmed

28 Apr 2022

FORD Australia has today confirmed specifications of its hotly anticipated Everest.


The Ranger-based SUV will be offered from launch with the choice of 3.0-litre V6 or 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engines with 184kW/600Nm and 154kW/500Nm respectively. Both will be paired to Ford’s 10R80 10-speed automatic transmission with two- and four-wheel drive configurations available within the line-up.


Four grades: Ambiente, Trend, Sport and Platinum will be offered, with all available in 4WD format. Ambiente and Trend variants will be offered as a RWD, and in conjunction with the 2.0-litre bi-turbo ‘four’, while the combination of 4WD and the V6 engine are reserved for higher grade Sport and Platinum variants.


Everest uses the same e-Shifter transmission selector found in high-grade Ranger models, and, depending on variant, will be offered with up to six selectable driving modes. On-road, these include Normal, Eco, Tow/Haul and Slippery, with Sand and Mud/Ruts offered for off-road use (on 4WD models). 4WD models also include a rear differential lock.


Braked towing capacity of 3500kg is standard across the Everest line-up while payload capacity ranges from 654kg through to 741kg, depending on variant (see table below for more information including GCM and GVM details).


While Ford Australia has yet to confirm pricing for its new-generation Everest, it has listed specifications for the four-variant range, beginning with the base-grade Ambiente. Standard features for the variant include 17-inch alloy wheels (with steel spare), LED headlights, DRLs, front fog lights and taillights, black side steps, auto-folding mirrors, interior volumetric alarm, rain-sensing wipers, front tow hooks and steel bash plates on 4WD models.


Inside, the Everest Ambiente is offered with the choice of five- or seven seats, manual front seat adjustment, fabric upholstery, an electrochromatic rear-view mirror, pull-out cup holders, tilt and reach steering-column adjustment, an open-style storage shelf, keyless entry and push-button ignition and dual-zone climate control.


Technology items include a digital 8.0-inch instrument panel, 10.1-inch infotainment array, an embedded modem, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless device charging, an eight-speaker audio system, sat-nav, digital radio reception, voice control and remote start via FordPass.


The Everest Ambiente offers standard driver assistance and safety inclusions such as nine airbags, collision mitigation, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot and cross-traffic alert, a reversing camera and auto high beam.


Stepping up to the second-tier Trend we find 18-inch alloys with a matching spare, privacy glass on the rear windows, a powered tailgate, mirror heaters and puddle lamps, leather-accented upholstery, an eight-way powered driver’s seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, driver and passenger floor mats and a second glovebox in lieu of the open shelf. The Trend also scores a larger 12.0-inch infotainment screen.


Third-tier Sport variants – with V6 power – gain 20-inch alloy wheels and matching spare painted in black, black exterior accents, a hands free tailgate, three-dimensional bonnet lettering, leather-accented upholstery with SPORT embossing, 10-way powered driver’s seat and eight-way powered passenger seat, heated and ventilated front seats and a 10-speaker audio system.


Finally, on flagship Everest Platinum models, we find 21-inch alloy wheels and matching spare with all-season tyres, plastic underbody protection (steel protection a no-cost option in conjunction with optional 18-inch alloy wheels and all-terrain tyres), satin chrome exterior accents, matrix LED headlights with auto-levelling, a dual-pane power panoramic sunroof, silver roof rails, tyre-pressure monitoring and zone lighting.


The model further receives satin-chrome interior accents, quilted leather upholstery, heated second row seating, powered third-row seat folding, a heated steering wheel, premium floor mats and LED ambient lighting. The Platinum variant also receives a larger 12.4-inch digital instrument panel, 360-degree camera and active park assist, and premium B&O 12-speaker audio system.


Option packages including an off-road wheel and tyre pack, tow kit with electronic brake controller, touring pack, third-row seat pack, and premium seat pack will be available. There are also 18-inch wheel and all-terrain tyre options.


Everest Ambiente, Trend and Platinum variants are offered with a choice of six paint colours – Aluminium, Arctic White, Equinox Bronze, Meteor Grey, Sedona Orange and Shadow Black – with Sport variants adding a seventh hue dubbed Blue Lightning.


The Ford Everest range will go on sale before the middle of the year with pricing to be announced closer to the model’s launch.
