Escape the city and explore rural landscapes with the Ford Everest…
Many urbanites spend the majority of their time indoors, staring at screens – a computer in the office all day, and a TV or smartphone at night. If you’re looking to get the family away from their screens, try tempting them with a weekend out of town; a road-trip, rich with the promise of adventure, sunshine, and fresh country air. And what better way for city-slickers to explore the rural landscape than in the spacious, air-conditioned luxury of a sports utility vehicle (SUV), boasting all the bells and whistles.
The rugged yet stylish Ford Everest is the ultimate recreational vehicle to transport your family in comfort, along with all your holiday and lifestyle gear, to almost any destination, on- or off-road. The generous cabin, refined on-road driving dynamics, advanced off-road capabilities, and panoramic moon roof* should help sweeten the deal – even for the most hardened screen junkies.
The strong and silent type
As your trip begins, you’ll appreciate how the Electric Power Assisted Steering makes the Everest easily manoeuvrable in busy city traffic, and gives you assured, precise steering on the highway. Sound deadening materials in the cabin, and Active Noise Cancellation technology – like that in noise-cancelling headphones – will also help you get off to a relaxing start.
Once you leave the asphalt highways and byways far behind, you can adjust the off-road settings of the Everest with the Terrain Management System**. The vehicle is purpose-built with body-on-frame construction and a low range gearbox, to ensure you are able to get wherever you need to go. With an approach angle of 29 degrees, a departure angle of 25 degrees, and the ability to drive through water up to 800mm deep, you can navigate even the most challenging lay of the land with confidence.
No tent required
With the third row PowerFold* seats folded flat at the touch of a button, the cabin of the Everest can hold up to 2,010 litres of cargo, which is more than enough space for all your weekend camping gear. Should a tent not be quite your style, it also boasts a flat floor surface with all the seats folded down, so there is plenty of room to lie back and fall asleep inside.
The greatest advantage of spending a night in the Everest is the incredible view. With a panoramic moon roof* covering the first and second row of seats, you can literally lie beneath a window to the stars. The transparent area in the roof is larger than a 46-inch widescreen television, so it’s kind of like having the ultimate high-definition display. Except this is not just another screen, but a picture-perfect view of the Milky Way.
