Ford Everest designed to tackle tough terrain


With purpose built capabilities the new Ford Everest is ready to take on any rough terrain and unexpected obstacles, which makes it the perfect vehicle to discover what is beyond any road’s end.
The design of the Everest is smooth with soft lines from front to rear. It is a monster waiting to be released into the wild with some clever comfort features. The interior offers a comfortable ride while you explore the world. Extraordinary details like leather-upholstered seats, active noise cancellation, and a panoramic moon roof make the Everest the ultimate pleasure on any adventure.
An interesting feature in the Everest is the Active Noise Cancellation which uses three highly sensitive microphones to detect and measure engine noise, then cancels it using opposing sound waves.
The Everest uses a camera mounted on the rear view mirror to detect oncoming traffic and turns the high beams on and off, as needed. Signature LED lighting sleekly wraps around the headlamps, giving the Everest a continuous glow and added visibility. The electric PowerFold third row seat folds flat to give you a bigger and stable surface.
The airbags in the Everest provide a network of protection with front seat driver and passenger airbags and seat-mounted side airbags. Side-curtain airbags protect everyone in the front and back. There’s even an airbag for the driver’s knee.
At the press of a button, Active Park Assist not only helps you find the right size parking spot, it steers itself in. Simply take your hands off the wheel and watch as it parks perfectly. All you have to do is control the gears, accelerator and brake. It also features a Lane Keeping System, a Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) and Adaptive Cruise Control with collision warning.
Equipped with a powerful 3,2 litre turbo diesel engine, the Everest offers you an effortless cruise around the city while still giving you all the power you need to tackle off-road adventures. The Everest is eager to unleash its 147 kW of power and 470 Nm of torque and automatically transfers torque between the front and rear wheels with the most grip to provide maximum traction on and off-road. It will even send all the torque to a single wheel if the system detects the other three wheels have no traction at all.
For continuous feeling of being connected to the road the Electronic Stability Programme helps ensure grip and control, especially around corners and when overtaking. This includes Roll Stability Control, which uses a gyroscopic sensor to detect the potential for the vehicle to roll and intervenes to restore stability. Electric Power Assist Steering (EPAS) with Pull-Drift Compensation technology measures the driver’s steering input, adapts to changing road conditions and helps compensate for slight directional shifts caused by factors such as crowned road surfaces or steady crosswinds.
