The latest version of the American car manufacturer’s popular SUV will be available in two variants. Check them out below together with their prices:
The new top-spec Everest gets the same 2.0-liter bi-turbo diesel engine as the Ranger Raptor capable of 211hp at 3,750rpm and 500Nm of torque between 1,750 to 2,000rpm. The 2.0L Titanium 4x2, meanwhile, packs a new 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine with an output of 178hp at 3,500rpm and 420Nm at 1,750 to 2,500rpm. Both power units come mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Changes to the design are relatively subtle: New wheel designs, a new-look front bumper, and some bi-turbo badging if you get the new top-of-the-line unit. We’ll get more in-depth with the midsize SUV’s design in a follow-up story.
Features include an automated liftgate out back, Active Park Assist, Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian and Vehicle Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control, a Lane Keeping System, and keyless entry.
“Given its track record in the Philippines, we are confident that the new Ford Everest will give Filipino customers a ride no less than extraordinary, building on its position as one of the smartest and safest SUVs in its class,” PK Umashankar, Ford Philippines managing director, said in a statement.
We’ll have driving impressions up on our website soon, so stay tuned. What do you think of the new and improved Everest? Are you digging the changes Ford has made to its midsize SUV?
