Ford New Zealand unveiled a new trim for the Everest SUV, which is based on the Ranger. The new trim, Wildtrak, mirrors the Ford Ranger's lineup and sits below the opulent Platinum.
The new trim, which sits immediately below the premium Platinum, blends bold styling with a wealth of standard features. It gets a new set of 20-inch alloy wheels that set it apart from previous trims, as well as a grille and front bumper that are exclusive to the Wildtrak model and side steps with steel accents. Luxe Yellow with Bolder Grey accents is now a color option for the Everest. Finally, the front doors, tailgate, and bonnet all feature black Wildtrak branding.
Ebony leather and Miko suede are used for the interior upholstery, and Wildtrak embroidery and contrasting Cyber Orange stitching add contrast. In addition to having 10-way power adjustments, the driver's seat incorporates heating and cooling features. An 8-inch digital instrument cluster and a 12-inch infotainment touchscreen with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility make up the digital cockpit. Wireless charging is also included as standard equipment, along with a 10-speaker audio system.
The 3.0 liter V6 turbodiesel engine with 247 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque is only offered with the Ford Everest Wildtrack. A 10-speed automatic transmission and the electronically regulated full-time 4WD system distribute power to all four wheels.
In July 2023, the model will arrive in New Zealand. Pricing will be announced later, but we already know it will fall between the Sport and Platinum trim levels.
