The Ford Everest

Written by

Shaun McGowan

The Ford Everest is, essentially, a spin-off of the Ford Ranger ute. Thus it competes with the Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and Isuzu MU-X, which are likewise derived from the utes in their corresponding lineups.

Because the Ranger is all-new for 2022, so will Everest be, when it debuts in late 2022. The range will be revised, as will the powertrain lineup.

Four model grades will be offered: Ambiente, Trend, Sport and Platinum (listed here from bottom of the range to top).

The Everest Engine

There are two engines: a 2.0-litre twin-turbo four-cylinder diesel with 154 kilowatts and 500 Newton-metres, and a new 3.0-litre single turbo V6 with 184 kilowatts and 600 Newton-metres. Both are mated to 10-speed automatic transmissions.

The 2.0-litre engine is available in Ambiente, Trend and Sport. The V6 is optional on Sport, and standard on Platinum. Additionally, you can select between 4X2 and 4X4 drivelines in Ambiente and Trend, but 4X4 is standard on Sport and Platinum.

4x4 system

The 4X4 system is the ‘permanent’ kind, with an AWD system allowing the use of 4WD on high-traction surfaces. (Mitsubishi has a similar system in Pajero Sport, but MU-X and Fortuner are stuck in rear-wheel drive mode - 2H - on high traction surfaces owing, to a substantially less sophisticated driveline in both cases.)

Essentially, the 4X2 system with 2.0-litre engine on Everest is a budget-friendly offering designed for families who don’t require additional straight-line performance, or rugged all-terrain capability.

Everest 4X4 - with either the 2.0- or 3.0-litre engine - should be very capable off-road indeed. Additionally, official tow capacity is, like Ranger, a hefty 3500kg. However, given the compromises that must be made in order to tow such a heavy trailer, it would be prudent for most owners to limit themselves to 2.5-3.0 tonnes maximum, to increase safety and reduce the inherent burden of compliance.

In summary

The new Everest is quite well equipped, with range-wide standard features including a large touchscreen display (either 10.1 or 12 inches, depending on model grade) incorporating Apple and Android phone integrations, digital instrument display (8.0 or 12.4 inches, again depending on grade), partial LED headlamps, electric park brake, alloy wheels and driver-selectable operating modes.

As you step through the range, equipment levels climb - with heated and ventilated seats, larger wheels and exterior trim enhancements, etc., while at the top of the range there’s a huge range of standard equipment for the Everest Platinum - including full LED lights, 21-inch alloys, quilted leather-like trim, memory seating, a 360-degree camera system, and automated parking.

A full suite of safety features will also be offered on the new Everest. However, at the time of writing, Ford Australia had not detailed precisely which features would be offered on particular Everest model grades.
