2023 Ford Everest Its local lineup includes a rear-wheel-drive Sport variant, priced at $62,790.
With production starting in March 2023, the Everest Sport RWD will be powered by Ford’s 157kW/500Nm 2.0L bi-turbo diesel powertrain, mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. It joins the next-generation Everest Sport 4WD, which was launched in early 2022 and is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel.
With a $6800 price difference between Sport RWD and AWD, opting for all-wheel drive is a smart proposition.
The Sport RWD now sits atop a 2WD lineup that already includes the Ambiente ($52,290) and Trend ($60,590), with all RWD models using the 2.0-liter bi-turbo setup. The Sport RWD retains its seven seats and 3500kg towing capacity.
