Ford has beefed-up its Everest SUV range with a rugged Wildtrak variant that picks up a handful of exterior upgrades and added features inside, joining its popular Ranger Wildtrak ute sibling.
At its core, the Wildtrak retains Ford’s 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 producing 184kW/600Nm, which is paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission for the full-time 4WD system.
Upgrades for the Wildtrak come in the form of a bespoke front grille and bumper design, with Wildtrak badges stretching across the bonnet, doors and the tailgate.
The Everest Wildtrak also comes riding on your choice of 20-inch matte black alloy wheels wrapped in all-season rubber, or 18-inch alloys adorned in all-terrain tyres.
Inside, special touches include ebony leather upholstery with orange contrast stitching, a panoramic sunroof, surround-view camera, ambient lighting and a ten-way power adjustable driver’s seat.
Ford says the Wildtrak is coming to Australia in limited numbers, with final specifications set to be confirmed closer to its launch later this year. Ranger and Everest chief platform engineer, David Grice, said:
“The 2022 Everest set new standards for performance, comfort and versatility in the seven-seat large SUV segment. With the addition of Everest Wildtrak, Australian families can now choose an SUV without compromise when it comes to combining work and play.”
