The forthcoming 2019 Ford Everest is a great family SUV that offers room for seven. You can opt for a five-seat model as well. Everest is a very comfortable model with the modern exterior design. You can opt for one of three drivetrain options, and there are three trim levels. Among those engines, a diesel engine is available. The arriving model should mark the start of the third-generation. Knowing that we can expect some major changes.
The 2019 Ford Everest will get a more muscular design and the interior will look and feel even more inviting. The cabin room is great and the materials are upscale. We still don’t know what will happen under the hood. Will Everest keep the existing engine lineup or there will be a new unit in the offer? It is isn’t that important after all, as Blue Oval carmaker claims, new Everest will become the most capable SUV right now.
2019 Ford Everest exterior revamp
The forthcoming 2019 Ford Everest won’t get so significant updates as you think. Yes, this SUV will enter into a new generation, some major updates are visible, but it is far from a complete revamp. For the start, the exterior will gain more muscles and more aluminum materials will reduce the overall weight. Everest is a large attention-grabbing SUV that you can’t miss at the parking lot. However, the overall dimensions are slightly reduced and riding height is higher than before. According to Ford, new Everest will become one of the most capable SUVs at the moment. Whatsoever, off-roading capabilities should be even better now.
When it comes to a design, the 2019 Ford Everest will see plenty of changes. The front end sports a new chrome grille that is wider. LED headlights are standard on the base model, along with the LED daytime running lights. The bumper looks bold, but it won’t suffer any updates. The air intake is wider as well. The rear part comes with LED taillights and the new rear spoiler is in the offer. The side profile looks perfect, but Everest will keep on riding on 18-inch alloy wheels. 20-inch wheels are optional, or standard on upper trim levels.
2019 Ford Everest interior offers plenty of premium materials
The interior of the all-new 2019 Ford Everest will look better than ever. The cabin is so inviting and comfortable and it can accommodate up to seven passengers. Whatsoever, there will be two different configurations in the offer. The standard configuration includes three rows of seats for seven or two rows for five persons. The room is ample, especially the legroom. Everest offers plenty of premium amenities such as power-adjustable front seats and heated and ventilated seats. New SYNC3 infotainment system is available and it adds an 8-inch touchscreen.
The list of standard features is really long, Bluetooth is standard, along with the satellite radio, USB ports, and navigation. Unfortunately, if you want Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you’ll have to pay additionally. Safety rating is also great as Everest now offers active park assist and autonomous emergency braking as standard. Lane keeping assist is optional, just like the rain-sensing wipers and tire pressure monitoring system. As in the years before, a rearview camera will be a standard part of the equipment.
2019 Ford Everest powertrain specs
Three available engines are under the hood of the new 2019 Ford Everest. There will be no changes in the engine department which means the same three drivetrains are in the offer. The 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine comes as a standard engine choice. This four-cylinder unit is producing 240 horses and 270 lb-ft of torque. Optionally, you can opt for a 3.2-liter five-cylinder output. The 200 horsepower doesn’t sound like an improvement, but 340 lb-ft of torque should satisfy all your needs.
Moreover, the optional engine offers better fuel economy than the standard one. The third option is the diesel engine. A 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel unit delivers the best fuel economy numbers. However, output numbers may disappoint you. This engine delivers 150 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of twists. All three engines will use a 6-speed automatic transmission. Both rear-wheel and all-wheel-drive configuration are available.
As we already wrote, the 2019 Ford Everest will be available in three different trim levels. The Ambiente trim is basically the base model with the SYNC3 system, navigation, keyless entry and push-button start as standard. Moreover, it adds power-folding exterior mirrors and a 10-speaker audio system. Pretty much the basic stuff. However, moving to the Trend trim level will bring you some top-notch amenities. A power tailgate is standard, along with the leather upholstery and more safety equipment.
The exterior will gain more chrome which looks nicer. Finally, opting for the range-topping Titanium trim will bring you nothing but the luxury. This model comes with an all-wheel-drive setup as standard, and literally, everything else is standard. That includes 20-inch alloy wheels, leather materials, a tow bar, and different interior color schemes.
