New on the Tarmac: Meet the stylish new Ford Everest Sport

Ford South Africa has bolstered its position in the expanding and highly competitive sport utility vehicle (SUV) market with the introduction of the new Everest Sport. 

Based on the popular Everest XLT, the new Sport derivative includes a host of feature enhancements, both to the exterior and the cabin, giving the Everest a more dynamic and athletic look.  


The Everest Sport boasts a black mesh grille and unique Everest badge on the bonnet, along with black mirror caps and door handles, ebony roof rails, special Sport decals on the rear doors and striking 20-inch black alloy wheels. The Everest Sport also comes standard with LED headlamps and daytime running lights, cruise control and front and rear park sensors with a rear-view camera. 


“From when it was first introduced locally in 2019, the latest-generation Everest has given Ford a strong foothold in the SUV segment of the local market” . 

– Doreen Mashinini, General Manager for Marketing at Ford South Africa

The extensive standard safety package comprises Electronic Stability Programme with traction control, Trailer Sway Control, Hill Launch Assist, Roll Over Mitigation, as well as seven airbags (front, side, curtain and driver’s knee airbag).


Customers have the choice of 4×4 and 4×2 models, both of which are available with Ford’s frugal 2.0-litre Single Turbo diesel engine, delivering 132kW and 420Nm. The units are mated to Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission.

There are six body colours to choose from: Diffused Silver, Frozen White, Agate Black, Moondust Silver, Sea Grey and Copper Red.


“With the attractive new Everest Sport, we raise the stakes even further, catering to buyers who recognise and appreciate the qualities of the Everest but would like to set themselves further apart from the crowd through distinctive styling and feature enhancements”.
