Ford Everest 2017 | New Car Sales Price

Ford Australia has released pricing for its updated Everest line-up, which now kicks off locally from $47,990 before on-road costs for the range-opening five-seat Ambiente RWD (rear-wheel drive).

This represents a huge $7000 price cut for an entry-level Everest compared with the outgoing $54,990 seven-seat Ambiente 4WD.

Consumers are being offered more choice thanks to the addition of three new variants – including the aforementioned base model – according to the carmaker.

Previously, a RWD set-up was only offered on the mid-spec Trend – which was introduced in December last year – while five seats could not be optioned in any member of the range.

However, this has changed as part of the Model Year 2017 updates, with the entry-level Everest attracting most of the upgrades.

Ambiente buyers can now choose between RWD/five seat, RWD/seven seat ($48,990), 4WD/five seat ($52,990) and 4WD/seven seat ($53,990) configurations.

Additions to this grade include an 8.0-inch touchscreen powered by Ford's 'Sync3' software, dual-zone climate control, driver instrument cluster with dual 4.2-inch LCD display, 10-speaker audio system, as well as running boards.

Meanwhile, RWD and 4WD versions of the seven seat-only Trend enjoy a $2000 reduction in price to $53,990 and $58,990 respectively.

As an added bonus, these variants now include satellite navigation with live traffic updates as part of the Sync3 multimedia system.

Equipment levels for the seven seat 4WD Titanium flagship remain the same, but its price is reduced by $1715 to $74,990.

RWD Everests share their 225mm ground clearance, all-terrain tyres and 3000kg braked towing capability with 4WD versions.

A 3.2-litre turbocharged five-cylinder diesel engine continues to be employed by all variants, producing 143kW/470Nm via a six-speed automatic transmission.

The Ranger-based Everest range was originally launched as a 4WD- and seven seat-only proposition in October 2015.
