Ford Everest facelift with largely unchanged pricing





28 May 2013


A welcome upgrade to the Ford Everest is truly a simple “refresh” of much-loved but aging face.  The line-up and mechanics stay the same, with the only real difference aside from the aesthetic tweaks being the cruise control now available on the top-spec model and USB and Aux input standard across the range. The pricing also stays largely the same, however, with only a slight increase on the LTD 4×4 model to account for the cruise control system.

Exterior changes include:

  • A new front grille
  • Slightly different front bumper, headlamps, fog lams and side mirrors
  • Altered back windows
  • Wheel arch flares
  • New colour in the range: Copper Red

 

The full size spare wheel is still mounted on the tailgate with a side-hinged door for access to the seven seater.

 

Interior changes include:

  • USB and Aux input standard across the range
  • Cruise Control available on the Limited model
  • New interior trim: “Basalt” (black vs the old “camel”)

 

Line-up:

The line-up is still three-models strong, with no changes to the engine (the Duratorq TDCi 3.0 litre engine) or mechanics.

Power deliver: 115kW and 380Nm at 1800 r/min
