It appeals to customers who demand an SUV capable of conquering any terrain while turning heads with its remarkable aesthetics. This special edition SUV embodies the "best of both worlds" mentality.
"The 2022 Everest has set new benchmarks in performance, comfort, and versatility within the seven-seat, large SUV segment," said David Grice, chief platform engineer for Ranger and Everest. "By introducing the Everest Wildtrak, Australian families now have the opportunity to choose an SUV that seamlessly blends work and play without compromises."
The Everest Wildtrak, available in limited quantities, exclusively offers the muscular 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel engine, full-time 4WD, and a 10-speed automatic transmission. With an impressive power output of 184kW and torque of 600Nm, the Everest Wildtrak maintains a maximum braked towing capacity of 3500kg (braked)2, especially when equipped with the optional factory Tow Pack, which incorporates an integrated trailer brake controller.
Drawing inspiration from the successful Ranger Wildtrak variant introduced in 2009, the Everest Wildtrak showcases a range of design and styling enhancements that enhance the appeal of the Everest lineup. Distinguished by its unique front grille and bumper design, as well as bold Wildtrak badging on the bonnet, doors, and rear tailgate, this SUV exudes a captivating presence. Breaking new ground, the Everest Wildtrak is now available in Luxe Yellow, a color option previously unseen in the Everest family.
Andrew Birkic, President and CEO of Ford Australia and New Zealand, expressed his excitement about the introduction of the Wildtrak badge to the Everest family: "Australians understand the significance of the Wildtrak badge, which is why it has become one of our most popular Ranger variants. We are thrilled to bring it to the Everest lineup for the first time. The Everest Wildtrak will offer customers a vehicle that emboldens their adventurous spirit, bringing a smile to their faces as they explore new horizons."
Ford Everest Wildtrak owners will have the choice of two wheel and tire packages.
