Ford Everest range for 2017 now includes new five-seat variant…
The biggest change is the introduction of new a five-seat/rear-wheel drive variant.
Ford tell us the decision to offer a lower seating capacity and a 2WD version was driven by customer feedback.
The lower seating capacity/2WD also enables Ford to offer a lower starting price for the Everest with prices now kicking off from $47,990.
A five-seat Everest is only available in the base-model Ambiente.
Boasting 1050 litres of cargo space behind the second-row seat, Ford is expecting the variant to be very popular.
While Ford can also offer you a rear-wheel drive option in the mid-spec trend.
For the record, the rear-wheel drive Ford Everest maintains the same 3,000kg towing capacity as the AWD.
Other changes coming into the 2017 Ford Everest include the standard fitment of running boards and a 10-speaker stereo system on the Everest Ambiente.
Ford has also shaved around $1,700 off the price tag of the top-spec Everest Titanium and all variants now come standard with an 8” infotainment screen with SYNC3 connectivity.
