2017 Ford Everest range updated main

FORD has upgraded its 2017 Everest range to include new models, revised pricing and extra features as standard.

To capitalise on the ever-strengthening SUV market, a price-savvy, five-seat Ambiente now starts the model range. Available in RWD and 4WD, the five-seat Ambiente is powered by the same 3.2-litre engine and six-speed auto seen across the range.

2017 Ford Everest engine“The addition of the five-seat Everest gives more Australians access to an award-winning SUV with five-star safety, space for the whole family and genuine off-road ability,” Graeme Whickman, Ford Australia President and CEO said.”

It’s now $7000 cheaper to plant yourself in an Everest, with the new five-seat RWD Ambiente a $47,990 proposition. Previously, the seven-seat Ambiente ($54,990) was the entry-level offering.
