Ford Everest Overview
Based on Ford’s T6 platform that also underpins the Ford Ranger as well as the Mazda BT-50 pickup, the second-generation Ford Everest is the Blue Oval’s mid-size 7-seater SUV, based heavily on the rugged pickup truck with a slight premium touch.
Imported directly from Ford’s Rayong assembly plant in our neighbouring Thailand, two trim levels were initially offered but the entry level Trend variant has since been dropped. The range topping 2.0 L Bi-Turbo Titanium AWD 10AT model is the sole variant on offer today with a price tag of RM 268,888 (OTR without insurance).
Only a handful of rivals offer the same diesel powered all-wheel-drive 7-seater layout with proper off-road capability, among others include the likes of the Toyota Fortuner and the Isuzu MU-X. The Land Rover Discovery on the other hand offers a luxury alternative in the segment.
