Ford Australia has confirmed the newest addition to its Everest SUV family, in the form of a new Wildtrak special edition. Revealed earlier this year, it’s designed with those wanting to conquer the everyday in mind.
Building on the variant’s 14-year history with the Ranger ute, the Everest Wildtrak enters the Australian line-up as the top adventure trim, with exclusive exterior and interior detailing and a price of $73,090 plus on-roads.
With a ‘best of both worlds’ mentality, with finishes perfect for the customer that wants an SUV that blends go-anywhere ability with eye-catching design, it will be available in strictly limited numbers.
Offered exclusively with the muscular 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel engine, full-time 4WD, and 10-speed automatic transmission, the Wildtrak offers 184kW and 600Nm.
It retains a maximum braked towing capacity of 3500kg when fitted with the optional factory tow pack, which includes an integrated trailer brake controller.
The Ranger Wildtrak variant was first introduced in 2009, blending tough-truck credentials with family-friendly comforts. Influenced by that vehicle’s design language, the Everest Wildtrak boasts a similar range of design and styling enhancements.
Along with unique front grille and bumper design, the bonnet, doors and rear tailgate are all adorned with bold Wildtrak badging. Like its ute sibling, the Everest Wildtrak is now available in Luxe Yellow – a first in the nameplates’ history.
Ford Everest Wildtrak owners will have a pair of wheel and tyre packages to choose from. As standard the seven-seat SUV is fitted with 20-inch Asphalt Matt Black machined-face alloy wheels with all-season tyres.
An 18-inch Bolder Grey alloy wheel and all-terrain tyre combination is available as a no-cost option. For peace of mind, both offerings are provided with a tyre pressure monitoring system as standard.
Similarly, the bumper H-bar, grille surround, wheel lip mouldings, fender vents and mirror caps are all finished in Bolder Grey, while chrome stand-off roof rails adorn the top of the Wildtrak.
Unique styling additions for the Everest Wildtrak also extend to the inside of the luxurious and tech-filled cabin, headlined by ebony leather with striking Cyber Orange stitching. A 10-way power adjustable seat with memory function also features.
Likewise, the front passenger has eight-way adjustability. Both front seats benefit from heated and ventilated functionality. A panoramic roof is standard, along with 360-degree camera, exterior zone lighting, and ambient interior lighting.
Final specifications will be announced closer to launch. You can contact your local Ford dealer for more information. If you’re keen on one and need finance, talk to CreditOne.
