Everest rate hits peak — Motoringnz

All new Ford Everest variants come with an 8.0-inch digital instrument panel, plus the 12-inch infotainment screen, the larger of two for Ranger, depending on the slope. Leather seats, wireless phone charging with wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto mirroring and two-zone climate control are also featured.

As with the new Ranger, the handlebars finally have height and reach adjustment.

All models also come with a full range of advanced safety technologies, including nine airbags (including a center airbag between the front seats) and collision avoidance systems such as Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alarm.

The Sport adds heated and ventilated power seats for the driver and passenger. Heated seats are available for second-row passengers in the Platinum. It also has a larger (12-inch) instrument display and a premium Bang and Olufsen audio system with 12 speakers.

FordPass enables remote start, vehicle health monitoring, and remote locking and unlocking via a mobile device. It also allows remote control for an outdoor zone lighting system that illuminates the ground around the vehicle for safer approaches at night or for camping.

Rutherford’s comment about the Everest came on the same day the factory in Thailand released images of the new model going off the assembly line and also being prepared for shipment.

Ford has pumped $1.39 billion into manufacturing operations at the plant. The investment is billed as Ford’s largest in the region in its 25-year history there.
