Ford Australia has given the Everest large SUV a price rise for the second time in three months.
All Everest variants carry over and are now $400 dearer, following their $200 increase in February. It's worth noting the mid-range Trend and flagship Titanium grades also had $300 rises last December.
As such, the SUV range now kicks off at $50,090 plus on-road costs for the Ambiente RWD and reaches $73,190 for the Titanium AWD (see full pricing table below). For reference, the latter peaked at $76,990 at its October 2015 launch.
Speaking to CarsGuide, a Ford Australia spokesperson said there are no corresponding changes to the Toyota Fortuner rival’s standard specification, as the pricing adjustment is “effectively seasonal, … influenced by factors including exchange rates and so on”.
As before, two diesel engines are on offer, including a 147kW/470Nm 3.2-litre single-turbo five-cylinder and a 157kW/500Nm 2.0-litre twin-turbo four-cylinder.
Both are exclusively matched to torque-converter automatic transmissions, with the former using a six-speed unit, while the latter has four more gears to play with.
Rear- and four-wheel drive are available alongside four grades: entry-level Ambiente, mid-range Trend and Sport, and flagship Titanium. And despite ebing based on the five-seat Ranger ute, the Everest comes with seven seats as standard.
