How Well-Speced Are The Base Variants Of The 2023 Ford Everest?


We’ve already tackled the specs and pricing of the next-generation Ford Ranger XL, XLS, and XLT as well as the Ranger Sport and Wildtrak. We also happened to dive deep into the specs of the Ford Everest Sport and Titanium+ too. Now, to complete everything, here’s what you get in the base variants of the Everest—the Trend and the Limited.

Priced at P 1,799,000 for the Trend and P 1,999,000 for the Limited, these two variants represent entry into Ford Philippines’ next-generation mid-sized SUV line-up. Like all other 4x2 variants—the Everest Trend and Everest Limited both pack 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.

Both the Trend and Limited have front and rear ventilated disc brakes as well as 18-inch alloy wheels with 255/65R18 tires.

The Trend also comes with the following standard exterior features:
  • Body-colored Front Grille
  • LED Headlights with Daytime Running Lights
  • Auto On/Off Headlights
  • Front / Rear Fog Lamps
  • LED Taillights
  • Variable Intermittent Wipers
  • Power Folding/Power Adjustable Side View Mirrors
  • Side Step Boards
  • Roof Rails
While the Limited adds a power tailgate (no hands-free function though).

Inside, the Trend comes with the following standard features:
  • Smart Keyless Entry with Push Button Start
  • 8-inch Digital Cluster Screen
  • Manual Day/Night Rear View Mirror
  • Single Zone Manual Airconditioning
  • Vanity Mirror in Front Passenger Side
  • 3 x 12-volt Power Outlets
  • Leather Steering Wheel
  • Leather/Synthetic Leather Seats
  • 8-way Power Adjustable Driver’s Seat
  • 10-inch Portrait Touchscreen
  • SYNC 4A with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • USB Ports x 2
  • 8-Speaker Sound System
Moving up to the Limited, adds an auto-dimming rear view mirror, dual zone climate control, an 8-way power adjustable front passenger seat, illuminated mirrors for both driver and front passenger sun visors, and an additional 12-volt power outlet.

In terms of safety, the Trend already comes with a full suite of airbags (6), ABS with EBD, stability control with traction control, hill launch assist, and a rear parking camera. The only differentiator is that parking sensors on the Trend are just for the rear, while the Limited upward gets them on both ends.

Like the Ranger, all Everest variants get a 5-year / 150,000-kilometer warranty on top of an Intelligent Oil Life Monitor which should reduce the frequency of oil changes for a reduced cost of ownership.

    1. Depends. Some people might consider that good value for the additional P 200K.

    1. Likely, no. The mid-sized SUV (PPV) segment isn't as big as it once was, so there's little reason why Ford would need to bring in an additional variant now.

  5. Your opinion sir, Given the price difference between the titanium 4x2 and 4x4 everest. Are the additional features of the 4x4 worth it to skip the 4x2?

  6. I'm sure some people would buy this. But in this economy, I'd rather wait for inflation to go down before buying any car. Because you know those dealerships are gonna slap you with some markups.

    1. Unlikely for car companies to drop their prices..Just admit that you can't afford to buy a brand new car so stop making excuses.

    1. FGP won't be selling the Ambiente anymore due to poor sales of the previous generation one.

  9. In what way naging TAOB ang NISSAN TERRA? Look at the difference in terms of torque and hp, specially sa safety features.

    1. Kasi gonggong ka mag isip! Ang utang intention ng mga negosyante para mas marolyo pa yung pangcash! Ang mga negosyanteng barat nilalaro sa utang ng mga bagay tulad ng sasakyan na for atleast 3 years ititrade na naman sa bago. May nagkacash pero ang iba mas pinipiling idagdag sa puhonan.

    2. The ignorant troll above doesn't know about opportunity cost & sunk cost. Paying full cash for a fast depreciating liability is just like lighting up paper bills.

  11. Ah, the ELECTRONIC locking differential. Cheapening themselves instead of actually dedicating a physical diff. Ford is a ripoff.

  12. Kung ayaw mo ng masyadong techy at easy to maintain. Ok tong Trend hehe

  13. Toyota ano na? ala na update?

  14. Ford should add ADAS to the Everest Limited, Sport, and Titanium+ 4x2. I missed the launch of the 2015 Everest when Ford's safety features were ahead of the competition.
