First review of 2023 Ford Everest

Does Ford Everest have Apple CarPlay?

The base spec comes with plenty of digital square footage inside, taking the Everest Ambiente 2023 beyond the previous-generation Ford Everest. The 10.0-inch infotainment screen – complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto that works both wired and wirelessly – is a great system. It uses Ford’s new SYNC 4 architecture, which integrates many features and functions while maintaining a balance between easy operation and navigation.

There’s also a wireless charger (meaning you can charge and connect your phone without any cables), native navigation, digital radio, and FordPass connectivity (which can boot remote, location services, and lock/unlock). Upgrading the specs to Trend, you get a larger 12.0-inch infotainment screen with the same vertical orientation, and both size systems retain physical climate controls and an audio dial. lower volume for ease of use (especially on the go). All details above are extracted from Wapcar Automotive News.

The Sport class gets a 10-speaker sound system “instead of the eight in lower versions”, while the top-end Platinum gets the full experience: 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster, system 12-speaker B&O-branded sound system, 360-degree camera system and ambient lighting.

In any case, Everest is well equipped for the digital technology inside. While the 8.0-inch digital cluster is good on its own, the larger system brings more functions, more data and information to explore, and additional customization for the driver.

Is Ford Everest a safe car?

Aside from the five-star ANCAP 2022 safety rating – which has just been published by the press – there are some good things to report for Everest.

According to the ANCAP test, adults scored 86% protection, while children scored 93%. Vulnerable road users achieved 73% protection, while Everest’s safety assist system achieved 86%.

Among the wide range of safety equipment available, Ford has not skimped on spec levels. Autonomous Emergency Braking (including Automatic Reversing Braking at low speeds), Crossing Detection, Lane Keeping Assist (with Curb Detection), Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Monitoring (may include including your trailer), front and rear parking sensors, and automatic high beams across the range.

The Ford Everest 2023 also has nine airbags – like the Ranger – including a central front airbag. There are also knee airbags for the driver and front passenger, as well as curtain airbag coverage extending to the third row of seats.

Platinum features a 360-degree camera system – which enhances visibility in parking lots and tight spaces – and automatic parking assist, along with matrix LED headlights.

How much does Ford Everest maintenance cost? 

In addition to the five-year unlimited-kilometer warranty, Ford recently improved after-sales service with the aim of making the vehicle more agile and agile. There are things like express service options, car rentals, and the ability to book cars online, and Ford owners can even opt for pick-up and drop-off services (for an additional fee, of course).

Ford’s service price guide on its website lists maintenance costs as $329 per year for the first 4 years, rising to $1,316 for the entire time (and 60,000 km). For the fourth year (and final limit), the 2.0-liter Everest is $383, while the V6 drops to $400.

This initial maintenance price is quite good and reduces the initial cost. Although Ford has yet to announce significant service costs after this point, it is reasonable to assume that prices will increase.

Does Ford Everest save fuel?

Having a keen eye and insight into fuel economy is tricky on the first ride like this when you’re frequently switching between different powertrains and specs. indifferent driving conditions. That being said, the worst we’ve seen from the most thirsty option (V6) is around 12 liters per hundred kilometers, while being slightly crushed on some of the twisty mountain roads outside of Brisbane.

We also see 8-9L/100km fuel consumption figures quoted in the BiTurbo Everest, with the V6 (again) hitting 9-10L/100km after a longer and less powerful drive.

Rather than potentially lead you astray with inaccurate numbers, this time we’re sticking to the confirmed consumption numbers below. It’s no surprise that the smaller, less powerful BiTurbo powertrain has the edge in overall performance. When these cars pass soon for further inspection on the issue, we’ll let you know.
