Ford Everest Review, For Sale, Colours, Interior, Specs & News

Announced in 2013 as the replacement for the Australian-made Ford Territory, the Everest arrived three years later. And while it has been very well received critically, commercially the Thai-built SUV has not been able to outsell the Toyota Prado.

Engineered in Australia and largely based on Ford’s hyper-successful T6 Ranger truck, the Everest has been designed for family accommodation, so includes coil springs in the rear (as opposed to the non-Raptor Ranger's leaf springs) for a more comfortable ride. It comes in five and seven-seater configurations.

Engine choices comprised of a 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo diesel (until 2022's complete redesign) and 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel alternative in higher grades. 4x2 and 4x4 versions are available.

Elsewhere, the Everest is also known as Endeavour. The cheapest grade starts from $50,090, rising to $73,190 for the most expensive version.

This vehicle is also known as Ford Endeavour.

Ford Everest Interior

If you’re familiar with an Everest cabin you know what to expect: a neat comfortable space, with solid build quality and nice fit and finish. Though it feels a tad aged, the Everest has a pleasant cabin in which to spend your time, including on long-distance road trips and/or during low-speed low-range 4WD expeditions.

The interior is spacious and functional with easy-to-read instrument displays and the clear Sync3 screen, and life-friendly hard-plastic surfaces and comfort-friendly soft-touch areas.

Upfront you have access to multimedia and steering-wheel-mounted controls, two 12-volt sockets and two USB ports, as well as storage spaces including glovebox, two cup holders and a substantial bin between driver and front passenger, and bottle holders in each door.

Ford Everest Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Everest here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Can the Ford Everest RWD 2021 tow a mid-sized caravan mainly on road? Or do you need the 4WD version?

    Both two and four-wheel-drive variants of the Everest have identical towing limits of 3000kg with a braked trailer. So, on paper, there’s nothing to split them as tow-cars. And the reality is that a rear-wheel-drive vehicle should be a terrific tow-car, especially one like the Everest which is fairly heavy itself and has tough suspension and plenty of brakes.

    The complications start when you tell me you want to use the vehicle to tow `mainly on road’. That suggests to me that there’ll be times when you may not be on sealed roads. At which point, the extra grip of the all-wheel-drive Everest might prove to be the difference between getting to where you want to go and not getting there at all. All-wheel-drive really comes into its own when the surface you’re driving on is less than perfectly grippy. Towing a caravan at the time only makes that difference greater and, when you’re half way along a dirt road and it starts to rain, that all-wheel-drive will be worth its weight in gold.

  • Should I get ceramic paint surface protection for my 2021 Ford Everest?

    Products such as paint coatings and upholstery treatments are often not much more than a way for the car dealership to squeeze a few (sometimes quite a few) more dollars out of you. Don’t tell me, let me guess: Once you’d agreed on the car, colour, options and price, you were led to another office where a sales rep offered you these miracle products that would keep your car looking new forever and without which, it would be a shambles in just months. Am I close?

    I’m not saying that some of the better products don’t work, and they certainly shouldn’t harm your car’s appearance, but ask yourself this: If a car maker cannot, in 2021, sell you a car that has high quality, long-lasting exterior paint, do you really want that car in the first place? If something as fundamental as the paint is questionable, what else is going to go wrong with the thing? And if the paint does somehow degrade through normal day-to-day exposure, the new-car warranty should cover it anyway. There could be exceptional cases (such as using the car underground in a mine, or parking it next to a railway line every day of its life where it will be constantly showered with small, rusty metallic particles) but for a normal car living a normal life, these dealership add-ons are a very dubious prospect.

  • Will the V6 diesel or V6 petrol option be more popular in the new Ford Everest?

    The rumours of a V6 engine option for the next Ford Everest have been swirling around for a little while now. The other expected change is the phasing out of the five-cylinder turbo-diesel, leaving the Everest (and Ranger) line-up with a four-cylinder or V6 turbo-diesel. It’s also pretty likely that you’d need to spend up big for the flagship model of the Everest to get the option of the V6. A petrol V6, meanwhile, is a possibility but would likely be packaged up with a plug-in hybrid driveline. That means that each variant (if it pans out that way) will be aimed at a very specific type of buyer, so it won’t be as simple as petrol versus diesel V6.

    The rule of thumb in 2021 is all about deciding whether a diesel engine is right for you. That rule states that if all your driving is around an urban environment without regular (at least a couple of times a month) highway running at highway speeds, a modern turbo-diesel can be a bit of a maintenance headache. As far as any of these vehicles go as an investment, it’s probably a mistake to imagine they won’t – as most brand-new cars do – drop a sizeable chunk of their value the moment you leave the dealership for the first time.

  • What car should I get to tow a 22-foot caravan around Australia?

    I wouldn’t be concerned about the cylinder configuration of a particular engine. What’s more important is how much power and torque that engine makes, and how towing-friendly that power delivery is. By which we mean how smooth and flexible is the delivery. What you don’t want is a peaky engine that needs to be revved before it delivers the good as that puts a strain on everything and make the vehicle tricky and unpleasant to drive.

    The good news is that all the vehicles you’ve nominated have good, solid powerplants that are well suited to towing a caravan. Modern turbo-diesels – especially with an automatic transmission – are ideal for this task.

    What you should go for, however, is the vehicle with the highest towing rating. In this case, that’s any of the Grand Cherokee, MU-X or older Discovery, all of which have variants that can handle a towed load of 3.5 tonnes. The Everest is almost as good with 3.1 tonne, but only almost. The problem is that the van you’ve nominated can easily weigh between 2.2 and 2.8 tonnes which, with a 3.1-tonne limit, leaves you very little headroom for water tanks and camping gear. You’d be amazed at how much a fully loaded caravan weighs, so don’t rely on the brochure, load the van and take it to a weighbridge to make sure the vehicle you have can legally tow it.
