2022 Ford Everest launched in Malaysia – 3 variants, 2.0L single- and bi-turbo diesel, RM264k to RM309k

Two months after introducing the all-new 2022 Ford Ranger, Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC) has officially launched the 2022 Ford Everest in Malaysia. The third-gen SUV – which competes against the likes of the Toyota Fortuner and Isuzu MU-X in the ASEAN region – goes on sale here in three variant forms. These are the 2WD Sport, 4WD Trend and 4WD Titanium.

The new seven-seater, which was unveiled in March this year, measures in at 4,914 mm long, 1,923 mm wide and 1,841 mm tall, with a 2,900 mm-long wheelbase. The track has also been increased by 50 mm to help deliver a more controlled ride on the tarmac.

Styling-wise, the front end features a mix of horizontal and vertical elements, some familiar from the Ranger and Raptor. Cues include C-clamp daytime running lamps, first seen on the Maverick, and a grille styled along the lines of the standard Ranger. The latter is finished in black on the Sport, while the Trend and Titanium’s horizontal accents are dressed in chrome.

The Sport and Trend are equipped with LED headlamps with manual levelling, while the Titanium gets matrix LED projector headlights with auto high beam. The front fog lamps are LED units, while the rear features integrated full-width LED tail lamps.

Viewed from the side, strong shoulder line gives the Everest a muscular shape, and the wider track further adds to the SUV’s presence. As for wheels, the Sport and Titanium get 20-inch alloys (with 255/55 profile tyres), while the Trend comes equipped with 18-inch units (and 255/65 rubbers).

Elsewhere, new roof rails allow the Everest to support static loads of up to 350 kg and dynamic loads of up to 100 kg on the roof, allowing the SUV to carry bikes, canoes, cargo pod or a roof-top tent.

For Malaysia, the Everest gets two engine and drivetrain options, the mills being the familiar Single-Turbo and the Bi-Turbo 2.0 inline four-cylinder diesels as seen on the Ranger. The Sport variant comes with the 2.0 Single-Turbo, which offers 170 PS at 3,500 rpm and 405 Nm from 1,750 to 2,500 rpm. It’s paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

The Trend and Titanium are equipped with the Bi-Turbo unit, which provides 210 PS at 3,750 rpm and 500 Nm from 1,750 to 2,000 rpm in the way of output. This is partnered with the automaker’s 10R80 10-speed SelectShift automatic, which on the Titanium gets a novel e-Shifter. Both variants also come with a two-speed electronic shift-on-the-fly transfer case, also known as a part-time 4WD system, with an e-locking rear differential.

In terms of drive modes, the Sport offers four – Normal, Eco, Tow/Haul and Siippery, while the 4WD variants add on two more, these being Mud/Ruts and Sand. As before, the Everest’s technical ability remains high. It continues to have a water wading ability up to 800 mm, and a maximum braked trailer towing capability of up to 3,500 kg.

Inside, the cabin has been given a complete rework, with Ford saying that plenty of thought has been put into the function and feel of the interior, with inspiration taken from modern homes and by introducing improved materials and premium finishes as well as ambient lighting to the cabin. Attention has also been paid to making the interior quieter, making it easier for front row occupants to talk to passengers in the second and third row.

As standard, the Everest comes with leather upholstery, ebony interior trim, eight-way adjustable powered front seats, an eight-inch TFT digital instrument cluster, wireless Qi charing and an electronic parking brake, among others. Both the Sport and Titanium come with a hands-free powered tailgate.

A SYNC 4A system handles all matters related to communications, entertainment and information, with a large portrait-oriented touchscreen (10.1-inches on the Sport and Trend, and a 12-inch unit on the Titanium) handling presentation duties, with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support and an eight-speaker audio system also in the mix.

As for space, there’s now more elbow, leg and shoulder room in the front and back. and access to the third-row 50:50 split seats are now easier thanks to 60:40 second-row units that slide further forward than before. Both rear rows have also been designed to fold flat to offer improved cargo carrying ability, with those on the Titanium being powered. There is more storage area for occupants, and power outlets in all three rows allow device charging for all on board.

In terms of active safety, the Everest gets seven airbags, ABS, EBD, electronic stability control (ESC) with traction control, emergency brake assist (EBA), hill descent control, hill launch assist, roll-over mitigation and adaptive load control.

As for driver assistance features, the Sport and Trend come equipped with emergency stop signal, turn assist, cruise control, front and rear parking sensors and a reverse camera. The Titanium adds on a range of advanced driver assistance systems including blind spot information system (BLIS), lane departure warning (LDW), high beam assist and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

Also on are adaptive cruise control with stop and go and lane centering, Active Park Assist 2.0, rear cross traffic alert and reverse brake assist and autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, dynamic brake support and pre-collision assist.

Seven colours are available for the Everest, and these are Absolute Black, Aluminium Metallic, Arctic White, Equinox Bronze, Meteor Grey, Sedona Orange and Lightning Blue, the last only for the Sport.

  • Everest Sport – RM263,888
  • Everest Trend – RM281,888
  • Everest Titanium – RM308,888

      Driving ford escape 07’. Used to have good aftersales, but 7 years later till now, although already sold off my ford escape in 15’, aftersales becoming deteriorating more alike until now. The problem is that I have been going to workshop for more than 10 times, starting from 14’. Aircond always not working and also while half way driving on highway all the way to Penang, leaking can also have found in driver seats and timing belt properly not fixed which always lights up engine indication icon problem. No matter how many times have been going to workshop after repairing, still same thing. Used to have dream for driving ford but aftersales always forcing me to go in and out and have too much works to complete. Seriously, I will still never ever buy ford again after driving ford lynx tx3 and ford escape.

      People who complain about the pricing are just plain dreaming.

      This is CBU for a large D/E sized SUV and arguably the best as it was designed in USA. Only the F150 based Ford Expedition is larger and it is purely for USA larger hulking SUV fave market.

      You peeps do not know how much value your getting from a real American car. Your looking at an equivalent of a RM 500k Mustang. RM 309k is superb value!

        Ford everest is designed in Australia. Second, you don’t get much value for it if you pay for the cheapest variant at 260k, it is a 260k car without ADAS (even no blind spot monitoring!), by today’s car standard that’s a ripoff. Plus you don’t even get the 4×4 variant at this price, at this point might as well get another AWD SUV e.g. Maza CX-8, XC-40, Subaru. Not to mention, last gen model came with AWD/4WD drive train for 270k.

        I’m not sure you can call 309k a superb value because at the same value (~100k AUD) you’ll get top of the line Platinum with 15k AUD to spare and it even comes with V6. It’s simply a bad pricing from Sime/import tax. Maybe we can’t compare to Australia market, maybe SEA? Well, compared to SEA we are still getting the bad deal – at least they are paying way cheaper for Titanium variant.

        You talk so many speculations in the end only want to paint Proton and government in bad light. Isuzu and Mitsubishi not bringing in their SUV while Toyota and Ford can, and that is Proton’s and government’s fault? What a twisted way of thinking you have there.

    It’s not going to work in Malaysian Market, Ford SUV with price above 200k. Ford should come out with SUV below 150k to challenge our local market. If Ford just want to sell 10 unit for their satisfaction then no problem. Come out a model and price to compete with HRV, CRV, Corrola cross and CX 5.

    I got a feeling that Sime Darby not interested in this car but have to bring it in due to dealership contract with Ford.

    The best is just shoot a high price, and hopefully recover back some money from those who like premium priced cars.

    Nowadays, premium price does not mean luxury and performance. And luxury does not mean quality and performance. As long as the owner is happy is good enough.

    That aside, I have to say they got the design right. A proper tough looking Ford which not many are willing to part money with will certainly make this truck a looker on the roads.
