Australian customers can now order a Ford Everest Titanium with a choice of wheels and tyres to take full advantage of the top-spec Everest’s off-road capability.
Everest Titanium buyers can now choose between an optional 18 by 8.0-inch alloy wheel, with an increased tyre sidewall, for improved off-road performance, or the current stylish 20-inch alloys. The No Cost Option increases the diversity within the locally designed and engineered Everest range, offering the highest level of equipment with the added benefit of an 18-inch diameter alloy wheel more suited to tackling harsh terrain. It includes a matching full-size alloy spare wheel.
“The Everest has been awarded for its off-road capability, and many of our customers have and do take full advantage of this,” said Ford Australia President and CEO, Graeme Whickman. “We’ve responded to this call, and we’re pleased to offer greater choice for Everest customers.”
The 18-inch package includes wheel, tyre and suspension changes, as well as Driver Assistance Technology re-calibrations for a cohesive package to perform at its optimum level.
The addition of the 18-inch wheel option further increases the choice for Everest buyers, as diverse tastes are catered for based on customer feedback.
While benefiting from Everest’s capable chassis, including an 800mm water-wading ability, 3000kg towing capacity and its Terrain Management System, the Titanium also brings a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, Panoramic Power Sunroof and leather accented seats, plus third-row seating.
SYNC 3, standard across the range, includes an 8.0-inch touchscreen with in-built maps on Trend and Titanium models, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. A full-colour reversing camera, as well as Emergency Assistance that automatically calls ‘000’ in the event of an airbag deployment or roll-over is part of the technology package.
In addition, the Everest Ambiente RWD has joined the line-up in 2017, with a five-seat model offering customers desiring generous interior space, five-star safety-rating and a 3000kg towing capacity at a more attainable $47,990 (excluding on-roads) starting price. This joins the Trend RWD, launched in late 2016, in addition to the latest SYNC 3 and NCO wheel and tyre package.
