The Ford’s large SUV, the Everest, has been updated to include Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection as standard from May 2019 production.

The Everest line-up now sees a high level of equipment across all models, from the five-seat Ambiente through to the seven-seat Everest Titanium with its Bi-Turbo powertrain, which has seen price adjustment below the Luxury Car Tax threshold.

“The Everest has won many accolades, and we’re proud of that, but we are always looking to add the latest technology and the most advanced features for our customers,” said Ford Australia and New Zealand President and CEO, Kay Hart. “The addition of AEB on every model is part of our commitment to constantly improve our products, services and ownership experiences.”


Adding further cost of ownership advantages for Everest owners is an expansion of the Ford Service Benefits program. For the first four years/60,000km (whichever comes first), eligible customers will be able to service their Everest for a maximum recommended price of $299 (incl. GST) per A or B logbook service at participating dealerships.

This further demonstrates the strength of Ford Service Benefits, including the added value of a Service Loan Car, Auto Club membership (including Roadside Assistance), Satellite navigation updates and a Vehicle Report Card.
