The 2023 Ford Everest line-up is set to expand


October 31, 2022

The 2023 Ford Everest line-up is set to expand, with a new flagship 4×2 variant alongside price increases across all model grades.

In response to high demand for the Everest Sport V6, Ford has announced a rear-wheel drive Sport 4×2 variant will join the line-up from March production, with power coming from the smaller 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel.

The 2023 Next-Gen Everest Sport RWD will be priced from $62,790 plus on-road costs – $6800 less than the Everest Sport 4×4, with buyers missing out on the more powerful V6 engine and all-wheel drive.

Engine outputs are unchanged for 2023, with the Ford Everest’s 2.0-litre twin-turbocharged diesel four-cylinder continuing to produce 154kW and 500Nm, while the 3.0-litre single-turbo diesel V6 develops 184kW and 600Nm.

Both engines are mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, with power sent to the rear wheels in 4×2 variants, or to all four wheels in 4×4 grades.

Alongside the new variant, the flagship Platinum has gained a black roof and steel underbody protection as standard, while the Touring Pack optional on Trend and Sport four-wheel-drive variants now includes black stand-off roof rails.

The 2023 Ford Everest is expected in Australian showrooms towards the middle of 2023, with production starting in March next year. Wait times on existing models are already up to 10 months on some grades.

Pricing Updates

Ford Australia has advised price rises of $300 to $649 for the updated 2023.5 range, to account for mild specification changes.

Buyers who order and choose to take delivery of a vehicle built from March 2023 onwards will be hit with the price rises, and gain the specification changes – even if they placed their order before the Model Year 2023.5 changes were announced.

Current prices for the Ford Everest – which apply to Model Year 2022 vehicles – will continue to be applied to vehicles built before the end of February next year.
