What to Do This Winter Holiday: Escape the City and Camp under the Stars with the New Ford Everest

  • Refined on-road driving dynamics and advanced off-road capability make the Ford Everest the ideal vehicle for a weekend escape from the city
  • Terrain Management System helps you to get where you need to go with ease and confidence
  • Second-row seats and power-fold third row fold flat to give you 2,010 litres of storage space – or room to sleep if you don’t have a tent
  • Panoramic moon roof with first- and second-row coverage is your window to the stars

Everyone knows that city life can mean spending too much time indoors. Many people spend most of their days staring at a computer screen in an office, only to go home and sit in front of the television or spend time on their phones. Even children now spend hours every day fixated on screens.

The new Ford Everest is the perfect antidote to the world of screens and urban stress, opening up new possibilities for a weekend escape with your friends and family. It has been tested all over the world, from the rugged Australian Outback to northern Sweden, the Arizona desert, the jungles of Thailand and even to the base of Mount Everest, making it just as at home in the most extreme off-road environments as it is in busy city traffic.

As your journey out of the city begins, you’ll appreciate how the Everest’s Electric Power Assisted Steering makes it manoeuvrable in city traffic and gives you confident, precise steering on the highway. Sound deadening materials and Active Noise Cancellation technology – like that in noise-cancelling headphones – will also help you get off to a relaxing start in the Everest’s quiet cabin.

When the terrain starts to get rougher you can adjust the Everest’s off-road settings with the Terrain Management System. Each of the system’s four settings fundamentally changes how the vehicle behaves to help to flatter the novice and assist the expert. The Everest has been 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 confidence. 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 confidently climb mountains and ford streams.

You don’t need to worry about carrying too much on your weekend in the great outdoors: With the Everest’s 3rd row PowerFold* seats folded flat at the touch of a button, the Everest holds up to 2,010 litres of cargo, more than enough room for all of your weekend camping equipment.

The Everest boasts a flat floor surface with all of the seats folded down, so there is even plenty of space to lie down and relax if you don’t own a tent.

The greatest advantage to spending the night in the new Everest is the incredible view. With a panoramic moon roof covering* the first and second rows, you can lie down at night beneath a window to the stars. Covering an area larger than a 46-inch widescreen television, it’s like having the ultimate high-definition display.

Heading home after a relaxing weekend, you’ll also love how the moon roof enhances the feeling of spaciousness in the Everest’s refined cabin, flooding it with natural light.

So why not let the Everest take you on an extraordinary journey outside of the city this weekend? With its ability to take on nearly any terrain, it spacious and comfortable cabin, and panoramic moon roof, the new Everest makes it easy to discover the world around you in comfort and in style – even far away from the lights and endless screens of the city.
