2016 Ford Everest price and release date
As the car is going to be manufactured in Australia, this is going to be the first market it will hit. With the makings of this car Australia will also get its largest vehicle on the roads and the release date is set for late October. After that there are going to be initial releases in Thailand and the Philippines and later on all across Asia. The US market is still not set and we do not thing that we are going to see a Ford Everest in America this year. The price is a high one, particularly for the Australian market as the new model of the 2016 Ford Everest is going to be the priciest car on the market with a price tag of starting $54,990, which can easily reach $76,990 when adding all the specs that the car can come by with.
The design of the car will remain massive. In fact the new 2016 Ford Everest exterior will make it the largest car on the Australian roads, period. This makes an imposing look for the Everest which is going to fit some basic elements which are carried from the previous model and also add some features that we have not seen before that are going to debut this time. The bottom line is that the Everest takes much of the Ranger vehicle, which add all the rugged and tough features to the car. But this is only going to be for the outer layer of the car as the added comfort inside and enhanced suspensions make it a beast on the outside but a sheep on the inside.
The car is going to have a generally boxy shape but will also receive some aerodynamic features which will enhance its performances and speed. The drag efficiency makes is measured among the best in its segment and the car gets a rated 0.389 drag rate thanks to the added underbody shield that directs the airflow under the vehicle. At the front it will still have the well-known trapezoidal grille and will also come with some integrated LED headlights and also daytime running LED lights as well. Also the off-road abilities of the vehicle have been enhanced and can be seen form the design of the car. The added Terrain Management System gives you the use of 4 different settings, normal, snow/gravel/grass, sand and rock, to help you tackle the versatile terrains better.
The car may look menacing and tough on the outside but it is a whole different story on the inside of the 2016 Ford Everest car. The design of the inside starts with some horizontal lines on the dash that are also present on the instrument panel as well. This means that the Everest sticks to the traditional approach with the design of the cabin but also manages to squeeze in some contemporary additions as well. The inside actually offers a high level of comfort which has been more than enhanced with this model. Helping you with that come the 8-way adjustable powered and heated front seats that makes a while lot of difference for the driver. The entire layout of the cabin has received some upgraded materials and the added space also makes sure that everything looks great.
The technology that has been added also makes a whole lot of difference. A 8” touchscreen, climate control functions, Wi-Fi hotspot technology, Bluetooth phone connectivity and satellite navigation are just some of the goodies inside. The safety features that help you on different types of terrains are the Blind Spot Information System, Lane Departure Warning, Cross Traffic Alert, Curve Control, Lane Keeping Aid and many other enhancements like Forward Alert with Collision Mitigation, Active Park Assist and Roll Stability Control.
A powerful car like this needs three engine choices. What the 2016 Ford Everest has been fitted as a base choice is already a pretty powerful addition under the hood, the 2.0-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder petrol engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission which enables an output of 250 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque (183kw/366Nm). This brings the acceleration of the Everest to 8.4 seconds from 0-60 mph and a top speed of 155 mph.
Other two options are diesel engines options with the first being the 2.2-liter Duratorq 4-cylinder TDCi. It is good for 150 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque (110 kW/375 Nm) and also has the best fuel economy ratings from all of the given engine options, with an average of 33.6 mpg. The second diesel engine option is the 3.2-liter Duratorq 5-cylinder TDCi engine, which is the most powerful one with 200 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque (147 kW/470 Nm). Diesel engines come with a choice between 2 gearboxes, a 6-speed manual and 6R80 6-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift manual mode.
