All Ambiente and Trend grades are powered by a 2.0-litre bi-turbo-diesel engine, outputting 154kW at 3750rpm and 500Nm from 1750-2000rpm, and paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The Sport 4x4 and flagship Platinum 4x4 are new this time around, and are priced at $69,090 and $77,690 respectively, with the fitment of a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 helping to justify the cost.
The V6 engine punches out 184kW at 3250rpm and 600Nm from 1750-2250rpm, while also sending drive to the wheels via permanent four-wheel-drive system and a 10-speed auto.
All 2022 Ford Everests are rated to tow 3500kg (braked), while payload capacity ranges from 658kg (Platinum) to 741kg (Ambiente 4x2).
As we’ve covered before, standard equipment in the 2022 Ford Everest includes a fabric interior, keyless entry, push-button start, dual-zone climate control, 8.0-inch digital instrumentation and 17-inch alloy wheels.

As for safety, all Everests are equipped with nine airbags, autonomous emergency braking (AEB), lane keep assist, lane departure warning, front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and a reversing camera.
Seven seats can also be had with the Ambiente trim, adding $950 to the bottom line.
Stepping up to the Trend nets buyers seven seats as standard, while also adding rear privacy glass, a powered tailgate, leather-trimmed seats, 18-inch wheels and a 12.0-inch portrait-style multimedia screen.
Buyers of the Trend grade can also tick an options box for heated and cooled front seats, and power adjustable front seats for an additional $900.
For the Sport grade, aside from the punchier V6 engine, buyers are treated to black exterior accents, sports seats, heated and cooled from seats, 20-inch alloy wheels and 10-speaker audio system as standard.
The top-spec Platinum features all equipment found in the Sport, but also includes matrix LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, tyre pressure monitor, quilted leather seats, heated second-row seats, power-folding third row, heated steering wheel, surround-view camera, 12-speaker sound system, and 12.4-inch digital instrumentation.
As for options, buyers of any 4x4 grade can add 18-inch wheel with all-terrain tyres, with Ambiente buyers needing an additional $1100, Trend customers forking over another $500, while it’s a no-cost option for Sport and Platinum customers.
A Tow Pack with tow bar and integrated brake controller is also on offer to all customers for $1700, while a Touring Pack available on 4x4 versions of the Trend and Sport also bundles a surround-view camera and zone lighting to the Tow Pack contents for $1950.
All exterior, barring Arctic White, will incur an additional $675 charge on all variants of the 2022 Ford Everest.
