Ford's new 157kW/500Nm 2-litre twin-turbo diesel engine as fitted to the Raptor and other range-topping MY19 Ranger models, will also be offered in the Everest, along with a new 10-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.

Towing capacity is also up with the new drivetrain to 3100kg. Trend and Titanium models also gain a power tailgate as standard.

New standard features across the range include keyless entry and push-button start.

This will be paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission and will be available in all-wheel and rear-wheel drive versions of the Trend.

On the inside, the SUV will now feature the latest version of Ford's latest Sync infotainment system with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, navigation, and Apple CarPlay & Android Auto integration. These are in conjunction with the reversing camera and parking sensors that have been carried over from the previous model.

Some Ford dealers will offer buyers free map updated for up to seven years, while any Everest purchased after May 1 this year will come with a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty. On a closer inspection, you'll find a new grille with thinner chrome slats, a lightly updated bumper and new alloy wheels. Inside, there's new materials and a choice of a new interior colour, ebony.

The Ford Everest update was led by Ford Australia's design and engineering teams and they implemented changes based on customer feedback "Everest is still a relatively new nameplate in Australia, but we've seen a positive response from customers as we've honed the line-up based on their passionate feedback", said Graeme Whickman, President and CEO, Ford Australia.

"The response has been fantastic, and we're grateful that our Australian-led designed and engineered Everest has become a choice for off-road enthusiasts as well as those looking to tow their weekend project".
