Ford’s full-sized body on frame Everest receives some important spec updates to help it fend off the mighty Toyota Fortuner and the also recently updated Isuza Mu-X. What’s new?

The critical update is the addition of the 132kW of power and 420Nm single-turbo version of the Turbodiesel already found in the range. The 10-speed automatic transmission with Progressive Range Select for terrain dependant drive selection will still handle the shifting duties, and this model is to slot in under neither the 157kW 2.0 Bi-Turbo model. Ford’s Terrain Management System, is standard allowing for various 4×4 modes including Normal, Rock Crawl, Mud and Sand. So too is the rear differential lock.
Now with LED headlights as a standard feature on all XLT models, the Everest features Ford’s 8-inch SYNC 3 infotainment system with Navigation, Carplay and Andriod Auto, front and rear PDC with a rearview camera, and keyless entry and start.
In terms of safety, the Everest features Hill Start Assist, Hill Decent Control, Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control and Trailer Sway Control and Rollover mitigation.
