The latest 2023 Ford Everest prototype has been spied testing for the first time with Ranger underpinnings and new styling. First thoughts are positive, and the new SUV will depart from the outgoing model in many things.
According to photographers, the prototype was caught near Dearborn, Michigan, wearing heavy camouflage. First of all, the grille looks revised, followed by more attractive headlights similar shaped to those that the new Ford Ranger will use. Thanks to more shaped headlights, the upcoming Everest will provide significantly more road presence than the current SUV. Considering that Everest shares the same underpinnings as the Ranger model, we expect the same pair of engines.
2023 Ford Everest Redesign
The redesigned 2023 Ford Everest is spied testing wearing heavy camo. As we mentioned, the new SUV features the same shaped headlights as the new Ford Ranger. These new headlights will provide significantly more road presence than before.
Also, we noticed an overhauled front grille and bumper. From the side profile, the prototype appears more upright than its predecessor but has near-identical window frames. The Ford Everest also comes with significant side steps and rocking gloss black wheels wrapped in Goodyear tires. However, the presence of heavy camouflage across makes it challenging to determine what changes have been made.
Significant Changes Inside
At this point, we don’t have any information regarding the interior specs of the new 2023 Ford Everest. We know that this model will come in the form of a five-seater, offering a more modern cabin. Generally speaking, we presume some identical cues from the Ford Ranger model as well.
From what we heard, the Everest will be more equipment than the rest of the Ford SUVs. We expect it to features Co-Pilot360 safety system with blind-spot monitoring, trailer-tow monitoring, lane-keeping assistance, front/rear parking sensors, 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, and Wi-Fi.
2023 Ford Everest Engine Specs
Like the current Everest, the next-generation model will share its underpinnings with the 2023 Ford Ranger. Interestingly, the same platform is shared with the Ford Bronco model as well. Considering that, we can expect to deploys the same engines as well. The base will use a turbocharged 4-cylinder powertrain that should provide excellent performance.
However, the more powerful and optional one should be a twin-turbo V6. Both engines will be mated to a modern 10-speed automatic transmission. Also, many believe that a 3.0-liter turbo diesel V6 paired to a 10-speed automatic might make way optional. This unit would likely become the most powerful with a four-wheel-drive system. A hybrid option is in the works as well, but we are still waiting for an official statement.
Release Date, Price
The all-new 2023 Ford Everest has been spied testing currently heavily camouflaged. At first glance, we noticed some modifications outside that should translate to more aggressive styling.
Besides, the upcoming model features a more comfortable cabin and many advanced techs. According to Blue Oval, we can expect this SUV to debut in the fall of 2022. Pricing and exact engine specs are not yet officially released, but they will in the coming months.
