The 2022 Ford Everest has debuted. Local launch coming soon?
Updated on September 18 2023
A few months ago, Ford gave us a sneak peek of the next-generation Everest. Now, the time has come for the all-new SUV's premiere, fresh of the Ranger Raptor's launch. The covers are finally off and here is what the third-generation model has to offer.
At the front, the Everest takes a lot of cues from the Ranger, but perhaps that comes as no surprise. After all, the previous Ranger and outgoing Everest share the same face. The general outline of the SUV is similar to the 2015-2021 model as well, but it is slightly more boxy in some aspects. Most noticeably, the windows appear more upright and angular. At the rear, also took an evolutionary approach but the tail lights appear more dynamic. Ford adds that the new look is a “modern, strong exterior design.”
The frame has been heavily modified and now uses hydroformed rails for an even stiffer structure. That should make this new SUV even more robust and durable than ever. The new frame also allows for an improved cooling system to make it more resistant to high engine temperatures.
Like the Ranger, the 2022 Everest has gone all out in making the interior displays digital. The large tablet on the center stack dominates the dashboard, and the digital instrument panel is carried over from the Ranger. Entry-level and mid-spec versions get a 10.1-inch display, while higher-grade models have the larger 12.1-inch screen. All the high-tech active safety feature and conveniences found in the pick-up are available in the Everest as well.
You will also see the Ranger's active safety systems 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.
Ford has retired the long-running 2.2-liter TDCI diesel. From now on, the base engine will be 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel that's currently used in the less-expensive 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 that will be reserved for exclusive markets.
With that, it's 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.
