Sometimes, all you need is a car that can get the job done without any hassle. The Ford Everest has heard your cries and come to the rescue. Designed to handle whatever you can throw at it, this is an SUV that can open the door to some of Australia's most rugged and breathtaking landscapes. 

With an intelligent Terrain Management System, the Ford Everest can take you from the daily commute to the weekend adventure with the greatest of ease, meaning all you have to do is decide where you want to go next.

Here's a closer look at what you can expect from this incredibly powerful vehicle.

What's gone into the new Ford Everest?

In spite of its size, the Ford Everest manages to balance both performance and power with fuel efficiency thanks to its Duratorq 3.2-litre diesel engine and six-speed transmission. No corners have been cut in creating this highly capable SUV, with an intelligent All Wheel Drive functionality and 225 millimetre ground clearance. 

The Ford Everest also has the bragging rights of having the deepest wading depth in its vehicle class – a whole 800 mm – meaning stream crossings are right up its street. If you need to undertake heavy duty towing, the Ford Everest can lend a hand with its 3,000 kilogramme towing capacity perfectly suited for boats and caravans alike. 

The star of the show however, is undoubtedly the Terrain Management System, allowing the Ford Everest to adapt to slippery snow, mud and grass, as well as unpredictable rock and sand terrain. Add in Hill Decent Control and Launch Assist, and you have a whole new off-road experience. 

The considerations don't just end with the performance, however. Climb inside this seven-seater and you'll find plenty of room for kids and luggage alike. Even better, your passengers can look up and watch the clouds roll by through the panoramic sunroof. 

To make the ride even better, Ford has included noise cancellation, so no matter how hard the engine is working, you can still enjoy your favourite music. There's also a built-in navigation and hands free system to allow you to make and receive calls without having to take your attention off the road ahead.

When you're not bushwhacking, the Ford Everest is just as adept at handling busy cosmopolitan streets, thanks to its variety of sensors that help to detect and alert you of hazards.
