2023 Ford Everest features detailed

Four versions of the new 2023 Ford Everest will be offered in Australia from later this year, including a more luxurious Platinum flagship with standard V6 diesel power.

  • 2023 Ford Everest specifications
  • Four variants available, from Ambiente to Platinum
  • Twin-turbo four-cylinder or single-turbo V6 diesel power
  • Pricing still to be confirmed, expected in showrooms later this year

The 2023 Ford Everest will be available in a choice of four variants and two engines when it launches in Australia sometime later this year.

Revealed last night, the new Everest shares its underpinnings with the new-generation Ranger unveiled late last year, offering a new look, tech-laden interior, a 3500kg braked towing capacity, and the option of diesel V6 power for the first time.

Details confirmed by Ford Australia will see the new Everest retain a choice of four full-time model grades – though the current Titanium flagship has disappeared in favour of a more luxurious Platinum halo, with premium trim, technology and styling elements.

The Ambiente and Trend model names carry over from the 2021 range, joining the blacked-out Sport, which returns for a new generation as a full-time member of the Everest line-up.

Prices for the new Ford Everest range are yet to be confirmed, however given the extra space, technology and comfort on offer – and in the diesel V6’s case, far more performance – it is likely prices will rise over the current model, which costs between $50,090 and $73,190 plus on-road costs.

The 2.0-litre twin-turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine will be standard fitment in the Ambiente, Trend and Sport. Rear-wheel drive (4×2) will be standard in the Ambiente and Trend, with permanent four-wheel drive (4×4) as an option in these variants, or standard in the Sport.

The 3.0-litre single-turbo diesel V6 will be available as an option in the Sport, or standard-fit in the range-topping Platinum.

Standard features across the Everest range include a large Sync 4A central touchscreen (measuring 10.1 or 12 inches across) with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a digital instrument display (measuring 8.0 or 12.4 inches across), part-LED headlights, electric parking brake, alloy wheels, and a selection of drive modes.

Higher grades add leather-like trim, heated and ventilated front seats, larger alloy wheels and unique exterior design touches.

The flagship Platinum adds a dizzying array of luxury features, including matrix LED headlights, 21-inch wheels, quilted leather-accented trim, a panoramic sunroof, electric driver’s seat with memory, 360-degree camera, automatic parking, and more.

A full suite of active safety technologies will be available with the new Ford Everest – but Ford Australia is yet to confirm which features will be available on which model grade.

These safety features include autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian/cyclist detection and intersection support (including low-speed rear AEB), adaptive cruise control with stop and go, lane-keep assist, lane centring assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, Evasive Steer Assist, and park assist./

When the Tow Pack is optioned – which also includes an integrated electric trailer brake controller – the blind-spot monitoring system can adapt to accomodate a trailer measuring up to 2.4 metres wide and 10 metres long.

Nine airbags are available, including one between the front passengers, front knee airbags for the driver and passenger, and curtain airbags that cover all three rows of seating, unlike many rivals in the large seven-seat family SUV segment.

Ford Australia is yet to confirm final launch timing for the new Everest, however it’s expected to arrive in showrooms in the second half of this year – following the related Ranger ute, due mid-year.
