Since its facelift about a year ago, the Ford Everest range has been seeing constant tweaks and updates. They added the entry-level Trend back in February, and the Sport was introduced this month. But that doesn't mean that Ford is leaving the higher-spec Titanium models as they are right now.
This year, the Titanium 4x2 and Titanium + 4x4 get a few but welcome equipment additions. From now on, these top-trim Everests now come standard with LED projector headlights. With this light upgrade, these updated Everests should be even better to drive at night thanks to added visibility. For the Titanium + 4x4, the infotainment system gets a bit of an upgrade too. There's now a high-mount USB port for that variant to make it easier to plug in dashcams or other mobile devices.
While the changes are minor, these little additions can change the driving and ownership experience, most especially those brighter headlights.
But if there's one thing that you might like that didn't change is the pricing. Ford says that they're keeping its SRP the same as before, so get a little bit more car for the same money. The Titanium 4x2 starts at Php 1,995,000, while the BiTurbo Titanium+ 4x4 will set you back Php 2,299,000.
Like most Fords, there's an added emphasis on safety equipment. Both variants get anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, a host of airbags, electronic traction and stability controls, hill-start assist, and rear parking sensors as standard. The four-wheel-drive Everest gains lane-keep assist, forward collision mitigation, active park assist, reverse camera, tire pressure monitoring, as well as front parking sensors.
With the addition of two new variants, along with the upgrades to the Titanium, this should continue the Everest's strong proposition in the mid-size SUV market.
