Ford Everest 2024: Australian pricing and specifications

Olek Novak

Ford has announced updates for its Everest all-terrain large SUV including a tweaked lineup and a new optional towing assistance feature depending on grade

Ford’s all-terrain Everest large SUV is set for a new optional towing assistance feature and tweaks to standard features on certain trim levels as part of an updated lineup that will see the deletion of the Trend RWD grade.

Prices will remain unchanged for the revised vehicle lineup, which Ford has dubbed ‘MY24.5’, although prices had already increased by between $500 and $2500 on MY24 models since our last price update in mid-2023.

The updates to the popular large SUV follow similar tweaks made to the Everest’s sister Ranger pickup on which the large SUV is based, with MY24.5 versions of both vehicles set to begin production in March.

Ford’s Everest is the brand’s second-most popular vehicle, delivering 15,071 units in 2023 for an 11.9 percent market share. That made the wagon lineup second in its segment after the Toyota Prado, which delivered 20,710 units and a 16.3 percent market share. 

The Everest was Australia’s 20th most popular vehicle overall in 2023 based on deliveries, with the Ranger claiming the top spot as number one for the first time.

Let’s have a look at what’s new on the Ford Everest in 2024. 

January 2024 – New F-150-style towing assistance; extra standard features

Headlining the changes to the Everest and Ranger for their MY24.5 models is the addition of a ‘Pro Trailer Backup Assist’ – which we have already seen an iteration of on the larger F-150 pick-up truck – as part of option packs on certain grades.

Unlike on the Ranger, which gains the feature as standard on its higher spec models, it will only be available as an option on the Everest as part of the Touring Pack on 4WD Trend and 4WD Sport models, and on the Platinum variant as part of an optional Pro Towing Pack.

The feature enables drivers to ‘steer’ a trailer using the outer ring of the vehicle’s drive mode controller on the centre console. In using this feature, driver’s don’t need to touch the steering wheel which turns automatically to direct the trailer where it needs to go.

The system is designed to eliminate the often-difficult action of needing to steer in the opposite direction to the intended direction the trailer needs to travel while backing up.

In other updates, Ford has announced that the Everest Trend and Sport grades will gain Zone Lighting as standard, as well as Black Stand-Off Roof Rails. These features were previously included as part of the Touring Pack for 4WD and unavailable on RWD Trend and Sport models.

The lineup has also been streamlined with the deletion of the Everest Trend RWD grade, which will no longer be available. The Everest Wildtrak has also now finished its run as a limited run model with the MY24 range.

Otherwise, the lineup remains unchanged. 

What does each Ford Everest grade include?

Ford offers the Everest in several grades with two engine choices available paired with either two- or four-wheel drive. 

All variants come with a 10-speed automatic transmission, while four-wheel drive variants come standard with a locking rear differential.
