Ford Everest was first introduced locally in the market in 2019. The latest generation of Everest has provided Ford with a strong foothold in the SUV segment of the local market. This SUV offers luxury, quality, and refinement, combined with practicality and exceptional space.
The addition of the Ford Everest Sport in the range has provided Ford with a more athletic and dynamic look. It also has added to its appeal as a versatile vehicle perfect for those who have an active lifestyle.
The Ford Everest Sport is exceptionally well equipped. It has an eye-catching exterior design and a refined and luxurious cabin. It also incorporates several trendsetting technologies and the legendary capability and durability of Ford. In this review, we are going to explore the inside and out of Ford Everest.
Ford Everest’s Engine:
The 2021 Ford Everest provides the customers with a choice of two turbo-diesel engines. These engines are available with either rear- or four-wheel drive.
The Ford Everest has a 3.2-litre turbo-diesel five-cylinder engine. This engine produces 143kW of power and 470 Nm of torque, and it is coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission.
In addition, the Everest segment also has a 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel four-cylinder engine. This engine produces 157kW of power and 500 Nm of torque that is coupled to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Ford Everest’s Exterior:
The 2021 Ford Everest has the following measures:
✓ 4903mm long
✓ 1837mm tall
✓ 1869mm wide
Coming towards the looks, the features that set the Everest Sport apart from its other trims are a black mesh grille and a unique Everest badge on the bonnet. It also has black mirror caps and door handles that have replaced the chrome finishes on the Everest XLT.
The black treatment for the rear valance and front bumper chin in place of silver have further reinforced the dynamic appearance.
The exterior of the Ford Everest also incorporates the following:
✓ Ebony roof rails
✓ Unique Sport decals on the rear doors
✓ Striking 20-inch black alloy wheels
In addition, you can choose from the following six body colours: Moondust Silver, Agate Black, Diffused Silver, Sea Grey, Frozen White, and Copper Red.
Ford Everest’s Interior:
The sportier status of the vehicle is fitted with incredible interior features. These internal features of the Everest Sport incorporate embossed leather seats with unique blue stitching, a driver's seat with eight-way power adjustment, soft-touch leather treatment for the dashboard and an 8.0-inch Sync3 infotainment system sitting front and centre.
The first row feels spacious. There's still plenty of leg- and headroom in the first row—the First row also has impressive storage in the centre console, glove box, and door bins.
The second row is not as spacious as the first row. It has the ability to slide forwards and backwards. In the second row, there is a fairly limited knee- and toe room. It also has a central armrest with cupholders. The second row also incorporates 230V and 12V power outlets and roof-mounted air vents. Floor-mounted vents with individual blower controls supplement these vents.
The occupant space in the third-row is limited to small kids. It has little toe and knee room for adults. The third row also features cup holders. Getting into the third row is tricky, as it has a narrow opening.
