What is the Ford Everest Sport?

What is the Ford Everest Sport?

In late May 2020, Ford Philippines reconfigured the lineup of the Everest, its second best-selling nameplate, by doing some basic arithmetic — subtracting the Ambiente variant and adding a new one — the new Everest Sport.

The move eliminated all manual-transmission options for the Everest as Ford zeroes in on the demands of the market, delivering what they want and removing non-performing variants.

The nameplate has a solid following, and for good reason. It is as tough as it looks, great performance on and off-road, and comes with plenty of cabin amenities and technologies to satisfy the Baby Boomers while also pleasing the more discerning younger market.

Still maintaining the goal of attracting the buyers with a small to medium family, the Everest Sport presents an interesting proposition by offering exclusive equipment and premium upgrades.

The body is essentially the same: The large, rounded edges, big wheel arches, flared fenders, plus a recurring design theme that buyers who want a more unique Everest aesthetic will appreciate.

Exclusive to the Everest Sport is various exterior equipment that not only enhances its look, but also makes it standout when compared to its siblings.

Ford Everest Sport liftgate

It comes with a new black mesh grille design, an embossed Everest hood badge at the front, gloss black painted wheels and exterior mirrors on the side, black tailgate appliqué in the rear and a “Sport” decal on the liftgate.

Ford also gave it LED (light-emitting diode) auto on/off projector headlamps, daytime running lights, LED taillights, rain-sensing wipers, power-folding and power-adjustable sideview mirrors with turn indicators, side steps, roof rails, power liftgate with hands-free function, and front and rear splash guards.

Similar to all other variants, it comes with a double wishbone with coil spring and anti-roll bar front suspension, rear coil spring with Watt’s Link and anti-roll bar rear suspension, a rear differential, front ventilated discs, rear disc brakes, and electronic power-assisted steering with Pull-Drift Compensation Technology (uses sensors to complement the electric power-assisted steering and provides torque assistance to help the driver maintain his/her course without them even knowing or feeling it).

Ford Everest Sport cockpit

Under the hood is a 2.0L single turbo TDCi engine with 177hp and 420Nm of torque. It is paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift, which is the same gearbox as the two top Titanium trims, that delivers drive to its 4x2 layout.

Open the doors using a smart keyless entry, plus it now comes with a push button start system, also a feature it takes from the Titanium trims.

Inside it uses blue stitching on the dashboard panel, touchscreen infotainment system, on the door panels, the leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather seats, handbrake boot, center console, and on the front center armrest to show exclusivity of the Sport variant.

Ford Everest Sport rear quarter

It has leather seats with unique Sport accent, leather steering wheel, eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and manually adjustable passenger seat, third row 50:50 folding seatback, electrochromic rearview mirror, dual-zone automatic temperature control, passenger side-only vanity mirror on the sun visor, front scuff plates, and a second row bench seat with 60:40 split-folding seatback.

The infotainment option features an eight-inch color TFT (Thin Film Transistor) touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and also uses Sync3 with voice-activated controls. These are shared features across all the variants of the Everest.

It also has three USB ports, DAB+ (Digital Radio Broadcasting) digital radio, a premium 10-speaker system with sub-woofer power amplifier, and audio controls on the steering wheel.

Safety, security, and driver-assistance features include cruise control, electronic stability control with anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), brake assist, roll stability control, rollover mitigation, hill launch assist, traction control, seven airbags (front passenger, side, curtain, and driver knee), front and rear parking sensors, rearview camera, volumetric burglar alarm system, and child seat Isofix anchorage points.

Ford Everest Sport wheel

It also comes with two 12V power sockets, roof rails, and sits on 20-inch alloy wheels that are paired to 265/50 R20 tires.

Buyers can choose between four colors, Absolute Black, Aluminum Metallic, Arctic White, and exclusively in Deep Crystal Blue.

The Ford Everest Sport is a new variant that comes with a sportier exterior, cabin comforts, and safety features all for the price of P1.868 million, and it also comes with the automaker’s once-a-year or 10,000 kilometers (whichever comes first) preventive maintenance schedule.
