A premium 7-seater SUV, the new Ford Everest sets itself apart from the rest of the pack with its technologically advanced features, extensive safety equipment and design cues. The new Everest has been purpose-built to tackle the world’s most extreme environments with ease, enabling you and your passengers to enjoy extraordinary journeys with confidence.
Ford Everest: Terrain Management System (TMS)
Using an advanced Terrain Management System (TMS), drivers can dramatically alter the behavior of the vehicle in order to provide maximum handling in challenging terrains. Similar to having an expert off-road driver available on demand, the smart system on board the Everest helps you stay in command with its intelligent four-wheel drive system, resulting in a smart, safe and fun-to-drive experience both on and off the road. The TMS provides optimal control, even in the most challenging off-road environments with four smart terrain settings; normal, snow/gravel/grass, sand and rock. From undulating sand dunes to the icy roads, the TMS will help keep drivers in control at all times.
Electric Power-assisted Steering (EPAS): The smarter way to steer
In providing a more enhanced driving experience, the new Ford Everest features an electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) system that alters the level of steering assistance based on vehicle speed, steering wheel angle, cornering forces and acceleration. The intelligent system delivers precise steering that feels natural and confident, while reducing fuel consumption and improving refinement by eliminating a belt-driven power steering pump. This gives the Everest light handling at slow speeds, such as when parking, and firmer, more precise steering when moving at higher speeds. In addition, the EPAS system also enables a number of smart technologies and makes for a more refined and efficient vehicle, such as Lane Keeping Aid, Active Park Assist, Pull Drift Compensation and Active Nibble Control.
The Active Park Assist takes the stress out of parallel parking by steering the vehicle in automatically, providing a hassle-free and seamless experience for drivers.
The Lane Keeping Aid helps to guide drivers back on course if an unintended lane departure is detected using the vehicle’s front-facing camera, ensuring the driver safely keeps on the intended lane; EPAS system is engaged to deliver smooth steering torque to gently pull the vehicle back on course.
Another smart feature that ensures the safety of the driver and its passengers is the Pull Drift Compensation. This feature helps to keep the vehicle on course in conditions such as heavy winds or on steeply crowned roads. When travelling above 40 km/h, the EPAS system can detect when the driver has to compensate for adverse road conditions, and reduces the level of steering effort required by the driver, thereby reducing driver fatigue.
With so many advanced sensors and driver assistance technologies, the new Ford Everest also offers best-in-class water wading and ground clearance, 800 mm water wading ability and 225 mm ground clearance.
Priced from RM198,888 on the road without insurance in Peninsular Malaysia, the new Everest is available in four elegant colors: Sunset Metallic, Cool White, Black Mica Metallic and Aluminum Metallic.
