3. Ford Everest 2019 engine: The most noticeable change
The most noticeable change of the Ford Everest 2019 lies in its powertrain. For the Thai-spec Everest 2019, Ford decided to replace the whole engine range by three new units.
The first one is the all-new 2.0L EcoBlue TDCi 4-cylinder engine. Besides, a 2.0L is also offered, cranking out 180 hp and 420 Nm of torque.
Especially, the 2019 Ford Everest now comes armed with the Ranger Raptor’s powertrain which is a 3.2L inline-5 mill producing 213 hp and 500 Nm of torque. Both of the 2.0L and 3.2L work in a conjunction with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The Thai market seems to get more fondness from the Blue Oval as other markets like Australia don’t receive the single turbo 2.0-liter mill. It is also expected that the Philippine market will receive the 2.2L for the Ambiente and Trend versions while the Titanium 4x4 and Titanium 4x2 are hoped to get the bi-turbo and the single-turbo unit, respectively.
Additionally, the Everest 2019 gets Terrain Management System mated to a full-time 4-wheel drive set while a traction control support and a rear diff locker help to maintain the stability of the car.
