The 2019 model year off-road SUV is presented in Australia before the start of sales in the fourth quarter of this year.
The key point of updating Ford Everest ‘2019 was the expansion of the power scale due to a two-liter EcoBlue bi-turbodiesel, borrowed from the charged version of the pickup Ranger Raptor. The engine output is 210 hp and 500 Nm of torque, available already from 1 750 rpm.
The new engine is combined with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The average fuel consumption of this model, as the manufacturer claims, is 6.9 liters per 100 km. The new diesel is offered as an option in the Trend configuration and standard in the Titanium. The basic Ambiente and Trend versions are still standard with a five-cylinder 3.2-liter engine with 200 hp output and 470 Nm.
The suspension has been reconfigured to improve the driving characteristics, and the models equipped with Bi-turbodiesel have been supplemented with an active noise cancellation system.
Refreshed Everest also received a number of driver assistants, including an emergency braking system with pedestrian detection, a bootless boot opening system and a semi-automatic parking system. The standard equipment of all versions is now the infotainment system Sync 3, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as built-in satellite navigation.
The list of updates to the exterior is minimal: the radiator grille has been reworked, Trend has acquired projection optics, and the Titanium versions have a new design of 20-inch wheels. For the interior, a new Ebony theme has been added, and the amount of “soft” plastic in the contact areas has been increased.
By the way, the day before, an updated version of the global pickup Ford Ranger was presented, on the basis of which the SUV Everest was built. True, the SUV has a full drive, and not a plug-in, but a spring suspension with Watt’s mechanism behind, whereas a pickup truck has a spring suspension. The car received a recycled grille and front bumper, LED optics and an automatic braking system. In the interior of any changes. In addition, the updated Ranger also had a bunch of two-liter bithurbo diesel and a 10-speed automatic. In the scale there are also: a basic engine of 2.2 liters (160 hp and 385 Nm) and the aforementioned 5-cylinder volume of 3.2 liters.
Recall, the new Ford Ranger in performance for the US market was introduced in January at the Detroit Motor Show.
