The range-topping Ford Everest Titanium is now offered with an optional 18-inch tyre and wheel package that comes with a number of suspension changes to enhance its off-road capability.
The option pack also includes a recalibration of the Everest’s driver assistance and safety systems to better suit slippery conditions and enhance traction when straying far from the beaten trail.
Buyers of the Everest Titanium can choose between the standard 20-inch alloys, or an 18-inch setup with taller sidewalls at no additional cost. A matching full-size spare wheel is also included.
Other than the new off-road package nothing else has changed on the Everest, with the same Sync3 infotainment system, 143kW/470Nm 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo-diesel engine and six-speed automatic with dual-range 4WD being standard features on the range-topping Everest.
Ford claims Everest ownership has increased by 22.5 percent in 2017.
The no-cost option are not available on other models in the Everest range. For now, it remains exclusive to the Titanium grade.
“The Everest has been awarded for its off-road capability, and many of our customers have and do take full advantage of this,” Ford Australia President and CEO, Graeme Whickman said.
“We’ve responded to this call, and we’re pleased to offer greater choice for Everest customers.”
