Ford Philippines has launched the refreshed version of its popular Everest mid-size SUV, taking its capability, safety, and efficiency to the next level with notable enhancements to its engine, transmission, and driver-assist technologies.
“The Ford Everest was launched in the Philippine market in 2003, at a time when the demand for SUVs was still on the rise. The Everest redefined the SUV segment with its bold design, advanced technology, and stunning off-road and on-road capabilities,” said PK “Uma” Umashankar, managing director, Ford Philippines.
“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,” he added.
The new Everest sports a new grille treatment, incorporating a secondary grille texture against Everest’s chrome HID headlights. It is also fitted with a new 20-inch split-spoke alloy wheel design with darker wheel accents that add to its rugged appearance. Inside, the new Everest’s spacious cabin features a new ebony interior theme and has a Panoramic Moonroof that is fully adjustable at the touch of a button.
The new Ford Everest has two new powerplants: the new-generation 2.0L Bi-Turbo diesel, and 2.0L Turbo diesel engines. These new mills are paired with an advanced 10-speed automatic transmission that promises improved fuel efficiency and better acceleration. The 2.0L Bi-Turbo diesel engine delivers 210HP and 500Nm of torque, while the 2.0L Turbo engine puts out 178HP and 420 Nm of torque.
Just as significant as the change in engines and modification of the exteriors is the new Everest's once-a-year scheduled service interval instead of the previous iteration's bi-annual calendar. This reduces downtime by half and improves the ownership experience.
