Ford Everest Comparison

    Ford Australia has detailed a number of changes to its Everest body-on-frame SUV range for models produced from March 2024.

    Examples of the updated range will start reaching customers locally around mid-year. After “responding to customer preferences”, Ford is axing the Everest Trend RWD as part of this update. The Trend variant is still available in 4WD guise however.

    The Everest Wildtrak variant is also disappearing, although it was only a special edition to begin with.

    Pricing for the rest of the Ford Everest line-up remains unchanged. The range opens at $53,990 before on-roads for the Ambiente RWD, and extends to $79,490 before on-roads for the flagship Platinum.

    The seven-seat Ford Everest is on hand to offer all the same off-road capability as the Ranger in a body with space for seven.

    As with the Ranger on which it is based, it packs a tougher new look on the outside and its interior is brimming with the sort of technology that would once have been unimaginable in a car with commercial roots.

    There’s V6 turbo-diesel power now for people who want more grunt, and a refined take on the existing 2.0-litre Bi-Turbo diesel for those who don’t.

    Ford is casting the net wide with the new Everest. At the bottom end of the range, it needs to take on more budget-oriented body-on-frame four-wheel drives like the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport.

    Mid-range models are aimed at the ever-popular Isuzu MU-X, while the range-topping Platinum lines up neatly with the popular but ageing Toyota LandCruiser Prado.

    That’s no small ask. Is the Everest up to the task, or does it have a mountain to climb?
