Ford has now launched the new and first-ever Everest Wildtrak in New Zealand. Like its pickup sibling, this midsize SUV boasts added tech and driver-assistance systems along with exterior and interior cosmetic tweaks.

Like the Ranger Wildtrak, the Everest Wildtrak will be sold with the variant-exclusive Luxe Yellow finish. It gets 20-inch alloy wheels, and its bumper H-bar, grille surround, and wheel lip moldings feature Bolder Grey detailing.
Inside, the Everest Wildtrak is fitted with leather seats with 10- and eight-way power adjustment for the driver and front passenger seat, respectively. Heated/ventilated front seats, Cyber Orange interior accents, and a 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster with a 12-inch Ford SYNC 4A infotainment system can be found inside the cabin as well.
The Ford Everest Wildtrak will be powered by a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel under its hood. No figures for that powertrain were published, but Ford says this allows the SUV to tow up to 3,500kg.
Alongside the Wildtrak, the Everest Sport also makes its debut in New Zealand. This one’s available with a 2.0-liter bi-turbo diesel engine, a familiar mill that churns out 207hp and 500Nm of torque in Philippine-spec units.
