Next-Gen Everest Specs Released
May 4, 2022
Ford Australia has 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).
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.
