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 $52,990, rising to $77,690 for the most expensive version.

This vehicle is also known as Ford Endeavour.

Ford Everest Q&As

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

  • Does disconnecting the battery in my 2017 Ford Everest reset the computer?

    That might do the trick, but there's actually an easier way to return the Everest's computer to the factory standard settings. It goes like this:

    Start the vehicle and make sure it is in Park with the engine running. Then press 'Settings' on the SYNC screen. Then choose 'General' and scroll down to select 'Master Reset'. At this point, you should get a message on the screen that the reset will erase all previous settings and factory defaults will be restored. By pressing 'Continue' you're agreeing to this and you should then see the screen go blank for anything up to a few minutes while it reboots.

  • 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.
