2023 Ford Everest Is More Expensive Than Before But Is The Best Kitted Mid-Sized SUV


If revealing the key specs of the next-generation Ranger ahead of its official July 28 official launch wasn’t enough, Ford has done the same with the all-new Everest. Coinciding with the opening of its online ordering portal (read here for more info), the carmaker has now given us a glimpse of how the Everest Sport and Everest Titanium+ variants differ (check out the Trend and Limited models here).

As a refresher, the Everest Sport 4x2 is priced at P 2,089,000, while the Everest Titanium+ 4x2 is priced at P 2,179,000. The top-of-the-line Everest Titanium+ 4x4 caps the line-up at P 2,495,000.

All 4x2 variants—whether the Everest Sport or Titanium+ packs a single-turbo 2.0-liter making 170 horsepower at 3,500 rpm and 405 Nm of torque from 1,750 to 2,500 rpm. This engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic with cruise control driving the rear wheels.

Meanwhile, the Everest Titanium+ 4x4 gets the services of the bi-turbo 2.0-liter generating 210 horsepower at 3,750 rpm and 500 Nm of torque from 1,750 to 2,000 rpm. This is then connected to a 10-speed automatic with stop-and-go adaptive cruise control. It also comes with an electronic rear locking differential and Ford’s Terrain Management System.

All variants get ventilated disc brakes all around as well as 255/55R20 wheels.

Exterior-wise, both the Everest Sport 4x2 and Titanium+ 4x2 get the following standard kit:
  • LED headlights with auto on/off function
  • C-Clamp LED daytime running lights
  • LED taillights
  • LED fog lights
  • Power folding, power adjustable exterior mirrors w/ side turn indicators
  • Side steps
  • Rain-sensing wipers
  • Roof rails and rear spoiler
  • Hands-free tailgate
The Everest Titanium+ 4x2 adds a panoramic moonroof, while the Titanium+ 4x4 gets an adaptive front lighting system with glare-free high-beams (Matrix LED)

Inside, the following features come standard:
  • Wireless charger
  • 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat and front passenger seat
  • Leather/synthetic leather seats
  • 8-inch digital instrument cluster

  2. New technology is always nice; but of course it’s best and practical to go with a reliable one.

  3. Not the best kitted. At the same price range, the Fortuner Q has more driver safety features than the Titanium+ 4x2. Driver assist tech was removed from the Titanium+ 4x2, bad move Ford!

    1. Agree. Even the engine and transmission of the 4x2 Everest are lacking compared to the competition (and its predecessor). Only the 4x4 Titanium+ is worth getting.

    2. Fortuner Q only got THREE AIRBAGS and its just based on the overpriced V 4X2 variant

    3. True. The Fortuner Q only has Driver + Front Passenger + Knee (D) airbags.

    4. But the Fort Q has adaptive cruise control, AEB, lane departure warning, with much more power and torque 204ps vs 170ps, 400nm vs 500nm. Massive difference

    5. Isuzu MU-X LS-E 4X2 is miles better than the 3 airbag Fortuner Q..

    6. Is there a camera 360?

      Delete
    7. 360 camera is only available in the 4x4 variant

    8. Looks like the Nissan Terra VL 4x2 has more “tech” than the 4x2 Titanium

  4. To add, driver assist tech was also removed from Ford's Php2M++ Sport Variant. Anyone buying these vehicles will probably look more for the passenger's comfort which, in my opinion, will be much better than the Fortuner.

  5. Airbags may have a factor but all in all, it's about how the brand integrate the materials and saftey features of the car! No matter how you equip the car with airbags, it won't guarantee the people inside to be that safe.

  6. Already bought the Fort Q a couple months ago before the price increase, and has reserved the new Eve Sport.... awaiting delivery to compare the performance.

    1. Why do you need 2 SUVs? 🤔
      I smell BS.

    2. Keep dreaming!

  7. Got the 2021 Fortuner Limited and was immediately let down by the lack of tech, no sunroof, no dual climate control, no heated seat (rest house in Baguio). The red interior trim looks a bit cheap. The JBL setup sounds good but head unit still reminds me of 90's aftermarket systems. The Ford Sync is much better.

    I've had my 10k reservation for this new everest for a while and am looking forward to the Titanium+. It looks to have stop-and-go adaptive cruise controll, which I've loved in my vehicles in the USA.

    Hoping this new one rocks as it looks to.
