The company has just announced that it will be introducing the Ford Everest’s Sport variant on March 18, potentially expanding the nameplate’s lineup to four trims—the Everest 2.0 Turbo Titanium 4x2, the 2.0 Bi-Turbo Titanium+ 4x4, the 2.2 TDCi Trend 4x2, and now the Sport.
No other details have been provided by the American car manufacturer as of this writing, but expect the Everest Sport to be positioned right below the top-of-the-line Titanium+. This is the case for the Thailand market, where the Sport variant is only available as a 4x2 and is powered by the same 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine as mid-level Titanium units. The powerplant is capable of 178hp and 420Nm of torque, and is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The difference is in the aesthetic. In Australia, where ‘Sport’ is offered as a special vehicle package, it gets 20-inch black alloy wheels, a blacked-out mesh front grille with a 3D badge, bi-LED headlights, ebony roof rails, and black exterior accents. The interior, meanwhile, only gets ‘Sport’ accented seats with blue stitching.
No prices yet, but we’ll release more info as soon as the Everest Sport is launched later this month. Will this Everest’s sporty exterior vibe help convince you to choose it over the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, the Mitsubishi Montero Sport, or the Nissan Terra? Let us know in the comments.
