Chasing Cars has put together a quick guide to let you know which new Everest model to pick if you’re after some turbo-diesel V6 grunt
While the Ford Everest’s biggest power move is undoubtedly its new 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 engine, it won’t be available as an option on every variant in the Everest range.
The full specification for the Australian market is yet to be released, and may change over time, however here’s a breakdown of what we know so far about the powertrains in the 2022 Ford Everest line-up.
Ford’s 2.0-litre twin-turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine (as used in the previous Ranger and Everest) currently produces 157kW of power and 500Nm of torque. This could change with the new-generation Everest as Ford is yet to release official outputs, however we know it will be mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and a full-time four-wheel drive system.
The brand new 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 engine’s outputs have not been revealed either, but Chasing Cars understands that the new V6 will offer at least 190kW of power and 600Nm of torque.
This 3.0-litre ‘Power Stroke’ engine has been available since 2018 in overseas markets such as the US where it has been used in vehicles such as the Ford F-150 pick-up truck.
The 3.0-litre V6 diesel will also be mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and a full-time four-wheel drive system.
As the entry-level model in the Ford Everest range, the Ambiente model is likely to only receive the 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel engine – potentially with rear-wheel drive in a future price leader.
Previously the biggest-selling model, the Everest Trend is also likely to only receive the 2.0-litre twin-turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine. There has been no confirmation from Ford Australia as to whether the V6 diesel can be optioned on Everest Trend.
Ford Australia has confirmed that the Everest Sport will be available with the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6, however it is also likely that the 2.0-litre twin-turbo unit will be offered on this trim level to create a sporty-looking price leader.
The top-shelf Everest Platinum has so far been the only variant confirmed as using the new V6 engine exclusively. Unless customers demand it (which is unlikely), the smaller 2.0-litre twin-turbo-diesel four-cylinder will not be available in an Everest Platinum.
