Ford Everest Wildtrak now available in PH as a 4x2 model with ADAS features

Remember when Ford launched the Everest Wildtrak at the 2023 Bangkok International Motor Show earlier this year? Well, after making its regional debut in Southeast Asia last March, the rugged SUV has (unofficially) made its way to the Philippines.

But unlike the Thai-spec version which is available in 4x4 guise, the PH-spec Everest Wildtrak will only be offered as a 4x2. Despite not getting 4WD, the latest Everest variant will still come with the aforementioned Wildtrak add-ons.

Starting with the exterior, it gets the Wildtrak-specific grille, stylish 20-inch alloy wheels with Bolder Gray accents, side steps with steel inserts, alloy-style roof rails, and a unique front bumper exclusive only to the Everest Wildtrak. To remind everyone this is no ordinary Everest, Ford also put the Wildtrak logo on the vehicle's front doors, hood, and tailgate. Last but not least, the Wildtrak version comes in a Luxe Yellow body color.

Inside, it gets black leather seats with Cyber Orange contrast stitching, a 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster, a 12-inch touchscreen with SYNC 4A, and a power-adjustable driver's seat. For extra peace of mind, the Everest Wildtrak gets a suite of advanced driver assist systems (ADAS). These include automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, lane-keep assist, lane departure warning, automatic high beam, a 360-degree camera, blind-spot monitoring, rear-cross traffic alert, as well as reverse brake assist.

Under the hood, the Everest Wildtrak is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel that puts out 170 PS and 405 Nm of torque. Power goes to a 6-speed automatic gearbox that drives the rear wheels.

The 2024 Ford Everest Wildtrak will retail for PHP 2.369 million which is PHP 160,000 more expensive than the Titanium+ 4x2. This makes the Wildtrak variant the only 4x2 Everest to come with ADAS aside from the range-topping Titanium+ 4x4.
