The folks at Ford South Africa have earlier today introduced a bolstered new Everest Sport derivative based on the its popular Everest XLT. The new Sport derivative includes a host of feature enhancements, both to the exterior and the cabin.
Visually, what sets the Everest Sport apart from its established siblings is the black mesh grille and unique Everest badge on the bonnet, along with black mirror caps and door handles – replacing the chrome finishes on the Everest XLT. Further reinforcing the dynamic appearance is the black treatment for the front bumper chin and rear valance in place of silver, along with ebony roof rails, special Sport decals on the rear doors and striking 20-inch black alloy wheels.
Step inside and you’ll notice the model-specific embossed leather seats with distinctive blue stitching, soft-touch leather treatment for the dashboard and a driver’s seat with eight-way power adjustment.
There’s also the standard with LED headlamps and daytime running lights, cruise control and front and rear park sensors with a rear-view camera. Ford will throw in heaps of active safety tech for good measure, too.
Pricing for the models is set at R662 800 for the 2.0 Single Turbo 10AT 4×2 and R704 400 for the 2.0 Single Turbo 10AT 4×4.
