Ford recently threw out an updated Ford Everest 2019 body-on-the-frame SUV in Australia. This version gets an extra kit and a little different look. The most promising thing comes from the new 2L twin-turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel transmission which was seen for the first time on the Ford Ranger Raptor.
The newly-introduced EcoBlue mill in place of the old Puma line will produce 500 Nm and 213 PS. The updated version uses a Getrag 10R80 ten-speed automatic powertrain which has a bigger ratio span to improve performance and refinement. Towing ability gets a little enhanced to 3100 kg from 3000kg.

The combination of the EcoBlue engine and this powertrain benefits the car’s fuel economy which burns only 6.9 liters for 100 km. However, the combination will only come in the top-end Titanium variant while optional for mid-spec Trend buyers. The existing 3.2L TDCi Duralog 5-pot turbo-diesel keeps being used on the base Trend and Ambiente, channeled to a 6-speed automatic. Plus, some markets may get a 2.2L 4-pot option.

Some upgrades will come for the Ford Everest 2019 exterior, a redesigned skid plate and a new 3-slat grille for example. Besides, LED daytime running lights equipped in the xenon headlights comes standard on the Ford Everest Trend while the Titanium gets new two-tone 20-inch split-spoke alloy wheels.
To boost the feeling of quality and comfort, soft-touch materials are added onto contact points. The interior gets illuminated thanks to contrast stitching and a new ebony color. Push-button and Keyless entry will come standard across the range. Markedly, Titanium and Trend models earn hands-free tailgate.
What’s more about the interior? Latest technologies include the 8-inch touchscreen SYNC 3 infotainment system, Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto connectivity. Also, a navigation system which features ‘breadcrumbs’ to detect unmarked off-road routes comes equipped. Of course, Active Park Assist (optional), reverse camera and rear parking sensors remains available.

Speaking of safety, Titanium and Trend variants earns Inter-Urban AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking) with Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection. It is likely that features in the previous models such as Spot information system, Lane Keeping System, and Adaptive Cruise control will come in the upcoming models as well. Worth of note, coming standard in all Ford Everest 2019 models, the revised suspension geometry is promised to improve handling and riding experiences.
