Ford Everest launch date set for March 1
Updated on February 22 2024
A few months ago, Ford released a camouflaged teaser of the all-new Everest. At the time, it was more of a teaser as to what it might look like once launched. However, what they didn't say was the launch date. We said it was near given that the automaker was kicking off the preview campaign.
This time around, there is no need to guess when the all-new version of the popular SUV will arrive. Ford has announced March 1 as the redesigned Everest's launch date. Not only that, you can watch the premier live at 3:00 PM through Ford Philippines' Facebook and Youtube channels. Of course, Ford is not giving away all details just yet. However, the company said that it will feature a “modern, strong exterior design.”, much like the Ranger.
As for some details, here are a couple of things we know so far about the all-new Everest. As seen in the teaser, the all-new SUV will have the pick-up's C-shaped headlights and bolder grille. The fenders and front doors will likely be the same as the Ranger. Ford is going all out in digital interiors and the 2022 Everest will be no exception. Since even the most basic Ranger has a digital instrument cluster, you can expect the same for the all-new Everest. You can also expect it to come standard with the large vertical touchscreen
Given Ford's commitment to safety, you will also see the Ranger's active safety systems to appear on the Everest. Some of these features include land departure warning, lane keeping assist, steering assist, among other things. Higher-spec models are also expected to get automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.
From now on, the base engine will be 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel that's currently used in the two-wheel drive Sport and Titanium versions. There's also the 2.0-liter BiTurbo version that's seeing duty in the four-wheel drive Titanium. Ford will also include a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel for the Everest, but it will likely be an option for the 4x4 model or exclusive to a new top of the line variant.
With the launch just around the corner, it's also a good time to buy a second-hand Everest, or even a used Ranger. That's because you can expect resale values to dip, making these Ford vehicles even better bargains. Simply head to our website to see our inventory.
