All-New Ford Everest Now in Showrooms for RM198,888
Ford and its local distributor Sime Darby Auto Connexion (SDAC) today officially launched the all-new Ford Everest, which sets a new benchmark in the SUV segment with stunning off-road and on-road capability, advanced technology, and refined interior comfort for up to seven people.
Available in both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive variants, the all-new Everest is also the most powerful SUV in its class and comes with segment-leading safety features, including seven airbags, and was recently awarded a maximum 5-star safety rating by the ASEAN New Car Assessment Program (NCAP).
Priced from RM198,888 on the road without insurance in Peninsular Malaysia and RM201,888 in East Malaysia, the all-new Everest is available in four elegant colours: Sunset Metallic, Cool White, Black Mica Metallic and Aluminum Metallic.
“The all-new Everest offers a brilliant blend of power, safety features and smart technology, wrapped in a bold new design that is sure to appeal to Malaysians,” said David Westerman, managing director, Malaysia and Asia Pacific Emerging Markets, Ford Motor Company.
“The Everest is perfectly suited to the way Malaysians use SUVs – for weekday driving it’s packed with exclusive conveniences like Ford’s SYNC 2 connectivity system and an 8-inch touchscreen, while weekend off-road adventures are made possible by Ford’s intuitive Terrain Management System, backed up by more power and torque than any other SUV in its class.”
A host of convenient features have been designed with the driver in mind, and for families on the move. As well as handy rain sensing wipers, the all-new Everest also features an eight-way power driver seat and is the only SUV in its class to offer a 230-volt power socket that can be used to power a laptop computer or any other device during a family road trip.
Further back, power-fold third-row seating creates extra space at the touch of a button.
“The all-new Everest is equally at home in busy Kuala Lumpur city traffic as it is in the most extreme terrains of Mulu National Park in Sarawak,” said Syed Ahmad Muzri Syed Faiz, managing director, Sime Darby Auto Connexion. “I’m confident the uncompromising character, exceptional capability and versatility of this rugged yet premium SUV is exactly what Ford fans in Malaysia are looking for.”
The all-new Ford Everest was designed from the ground up with the durability to take on the most inhospitable environments. One of the toughest SUVs in its segment, the Everest has a true body-on- frame design, assuring the torsional strength required for challenging terrains.
