After revealing the all-new Ranger last year and the Ranger Raptor just last month, Ford has now debuted the highly anticipated all-new Everest.

As expected, just like its pick-up sibling it’s been given a refresh inside, outside and underneath. Without the camouflage we can now get a have a better appreciation of how the Everest (actually) looks. It now has the new C-Lamp LED headlights, and a bigger grille sporting a thicker horizontal slat. The bumper and fog lamp housings are unique to the Everest, and is different from the Rangers.

The rear is where the bigger changes took place. The 2023 Everest has a new set of LED taillights that has an L-shaped element that makes it look more distinct than before.

When you step inside, you’ll notice more of the Everest’s similarities with the Ranger. The Everest gets a modern looking dashboard, a large vertical infotainment touch screen with Ford’s newest SYNC 4A system. The size of the screen will depend on the variant you choose, available sizes are a 10.1 inch or 12 inch. The instrument panel is also a fully digital screen, sizes are either an 8 inch or 12.3 inch screen.

This being the Everest, it still retains its three-row seven-seater layout, Ford claims that it’s now easier to access the third-row because the second-row seats can now slide forward further. There’s also a 60:40 split for the second-row, and 50:50 for the third-row. Should you need more cargo space, the second and third rows fully fold flat.

As for engine choices, while no specific specs have been given, the choices are the 3.0 liter turbo-V6 engine, a 2.3 liter Ecoboost gasoline engine, and a 2.0 liter diesel in either single or bi-turbo configuration. Depending on the engine, the SUV is paired to either a 6-speed automatic or a new 10-speed SelectShift automatic.

Underneath, Ford claims the Everest’s suspension has been upgraded to be more capable off-road. Water wading depth is set to remain at 800mm, also present are dedicated off-road displays to help drivers navigate better.

When it comes to safety, the all-new Everest now comes with adaptive cruise control with stop and go and lane centering. Other safety features include Lane-Keeping System with Road-Edge Detection, Evasive Steer Assist, Reverse Brake Assist, Blind Spot Information System, and Pre-collision Assist with Intersection Functionality.

Lastly, there will be three variants for the Everest, Sport, Sport Titanium+, and Platinum. There is still no word yet on when it will reach our shores, but given its popularity here, we hope Ford doesn’t take too long.
