• The 2022 Everest will be available in three variants: Trend, Sport and Platinum
  • Line-up will feature two different engines. In a first for the series, the Everest Sport and Platinum will offer a 3.0L V6 turbo-diesel engine
  • More powerful towing with 3,500kg towing capability across the range

Ford NZ says the 2022 Everest will be available in three variants for New Zealand: Trend, Sport and new range-topping Platinum.
The interior design and inclusion of the SYNC 4A3-enabled 12-inch centre screens along with the fully digital instrument cluster will stand Everest apart from the competition, they suggest. The addition of features like a reach and height-adjustable steering wheel and improvements to SYNC should make living with the 2022 Everest a more enjoyable and stress-free experience.

2022 Ford Everest: Powertrains

Next-Generation Everest will feature two different engines, depending on the model purchased. In a first for the series, the Next-Gen Everest will now feature a 3.0L V6 Turbo Diesel engine, pumping out 184kW of power and a decent 600Nm of torque, perfect for towing.

Producing 154kW & 500Nm, the tried and trusted 2.0L Bi-Turbo Diesel continues to impress, providing an excellent balance of pulling power and fuel economy. DriveLife found this engine superb for towing right down the North Island in a recent trip as part of our V8 Project Sunbeam Rapier.

As per the current model, to meet EU Stage 5 emissions regulations, all Next Generation Everest models will continue to require AdBlue.

How on earth to start this? I've been car/bike/truck crazy since I was a teen. Like John, I had the obligatory Countach poster on the wall. I guess I'm more officially into classic and muscle cars than anything else - I currently have a '65 Sunbeam Tiger that left the factory the same day as I left the hospital as a newborn with my mother. How could I not buy that car? In 2016 my wife and I drove across the USA in a brand-new Dodge Challenger, and then shipped it home. You can read more on www.usa2nz.co.nz. We did this again in 2019 in a 1990 Chev Corvette - you can read about that trip on DriveLife. I'm also an Observer for the Institute of Advanced Motorists - trying to do my bit to make our roads safer.
