Is the Ford Everest safe? Five-star ANCAP score for new-generation 4WD


Along with its related ute sibling, the Ford Everest has scored an impressive five-star safety rating by ANCAP

The new Ford Everest, along with the related Ford Ranger ute, have today been awarded five-star safety ratings by the Australian automotive crash and safety assessment body ANCAP. 

The latest Everest large SUV scored well across all four key areas, however the standouts were adult occupant protection that scored 86 percent while child occupant protection was even better at 93 percent. 

In the safety assistance category – meaning adaptive safety technology – the Everest scored 86 percent while vulnerable road users scored 74 percent.
