Not long after its global reveal, Ford Australia has revealed local pricing and specifications for the 2023 Ford Everest ahead of its arrival in August 2022. Priced from $52,990 plus on-road costs, the new Everest is only priced up to $3,200 more than the previous model, despite featuring significantly more tech and equipment than before. Two engines will be available: a 155kW 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel or a new 184kW 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel that is also the flagship engine in the new Ranger ute. 

“When we started imagining the Next-Gen Everest, we started not at the beginning but at the end: With our customers,” said Ian Foston, chief platform engineer for Everest. 

“They’re people who like adventure, recreation and being able to go out with family and friends. Whether they’re conquering sand, rocks or city life, these customers appreciate the utility, capability and spaciousness of an SUV.”

There will be two drivetrains available for the 2023 Ford Everest: a 154kW/500Nm twin-turbocharged 2.0-litre diesel engine in the Ambiente and Trend, while on Sport and Platinum models will be a 184kW/600Nm 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 engine. Both engines are mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and can tow up to 3,500kg.
