They love its onboard tech, reliability, and off-road capability. 

The next-generation Ford Everest was launched for the Philippine market back in 2022. Fast forward to 2023, and Ford’s midsize SUV has become a common sight on Philippine roads. With that said, we can say that many Everest units have already found their forever homes.

One sign of this is the fact that Ford Philippines already sold 3,534 units of the said SUV last year. But what about the owners themselves? What are their thoughts regarding the next-gen Everest? Well, Ford reached out to several Everest users to find out. 

Software engineer Zainal Limapao said that he chose the next-gen Ford Everest since it comes with plenty of advanced safety features. That’s because he needed a particularly safe vehicle since he experienced a car accident back in 2022.

Limapao further added that he found the Everest to be highly capable when it comes to off-roading. This is thanks to its selectable drive modes. Of note, Limapao has recently taken on off-roading and overlanding as hobbies. As such, he has first-hand experience in driving over different road conditions and surfaces.

Limapao was so thoroughly impressed with the Everest, to the point that he even recommended this model to three of his friends. One of them already bought one, and the other two already made reservations.     

Partners Sue Pascual and Wence Wenceslao, who are both digital experts, were likewise impressed by the Everest’s 12-inch instrument cluster. This was one part of the vehicle that helped convince them to buy the model, and now, they enjoy seamless smartphone integration. 

“Gone are the days where we need to use our phone to use Waze or change songs on Spotify. Now all our apps are conveniently connected to the car screen,” Wenceslao said.

Pascual added that she also loves the Everest’s park assist feature. That’s because this makes for “easier maneuverability of the Everest” especially when dealing with tight parking spots.  

Reliability is also a big thing Pascal likes about the Everest. Note that they owned a previous-gen model for six years, and that unit didn’t experience any issues when it was with them. To this end, upgrading to the next-generation Everest was only natural.  

If you want to join the growing army of happy next-gen Ford Everest users in the Philippines, then do note that it currently has a retail price that ranges from Php 1,799,000 to Php 2,495,000 across five variants. It is likewise packaged together with a five-year warranty, or 150,000 kilometers (whichever comes first).
